LAS VEGAS, October 31, 2006 â€“ Inspired by the spirit of The Beatles and created by Cirque du Soleil, The Beatles REVOLUTION LOUNGE is set to open this December at The Mirage. Opening its doors only six months after the high-profile launch of The Beatles LOVE, REVOLUTION will offer an extended experience before and after the show.
Revolutionary in design and atmosphere, this ultra-lounge will feature cutting edge, interactive experiences to create a psychedelic sensory environment and a contemporary interpretation of The Beatles era. Each night will be an evolutionary journey, where both the music and interior transform, resulting in an eclectic nightlife adventure at The Mirage.
â€œThe inspiration for REVOLUTION began with The Beatlesâ€™ message of love but the atmosphere will be a modern twist on their era of freedom, self-expression and free-love,â€ Jean-Francois Bouchard, Creative Director, Cirque du Soleil Experience.
Scott Sibella, president and COO of The Mirage, said â€œThe Beatles REVOLUTION Lounge is the next dynamic step in the continuing transformation of The Mirage. REVOLUTION will bring an even higher level of energy and excitement to the resort.â€
This is the first time Cirque du Soleil draws upon their innovative talent to create a unique nightlife experience in Las Vegas. REVOLUTION will be operated by INK, the premier nightclub operator in Toronto, currently managing seven highly successful nightlife complexes in Canada.
Hours: The Abbey Road Bar, located in front of the main entrance of REVOLUTION, will be open from 11am daily. The REVOLUTION Lounge will be open 7 nights a week from 5pm until 5am.
Music: Each night will have a specific musical direction. DJâ€™s will make a musical progression through the evening from strictly Beatles music, to funky lounge remixes, house , rock, electro, new wave and Brit pop.
