Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande to Hit Vegas for T-Mobile Arena’s Grand Opening Concert
The celebration will commemorate a new prime destination for events in Vegas including concerts, UFC matches, and award shows. Opening night of the celebration goes down April 6th, with a series of high profile shows. Presumably highlighting the past, present and future of Las Vegas music, the festivities are set to feature Wayne Newton, the Killers and Shamir -- plus the ultimate return of Guns N’ Roses. And a double-bill featuring Nicki and Ariana has been announced for the new Vegas arena on Thursday, April 7.*
John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, issued a statement. “What better way to open this amazing arena than with TWO amazing artists — Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande — and a few thousand customers and friends?” The Queen Barb and Pop’s reigning princess know how to get the people’s collective mouths watering for a dual dose of sexy and a sound that undeniably reaches multiple demographics.
The two collaborated with “Get On Your Knees’ and we’ll see soon enough if their Vegas delivery is reason enough for us to assume the position!
T-Mobile customers will have a chance to purchase presale tickets beginning 10 am PT, March 25 (t-mobilearenapresale.com), while tickets otherwise go on sale to the general public on March 28, 10 a.m. PT.
