Tiësto follows Calvin Harris to Hakkasan with 20-month Las Vegas residency
Calvin Harris recently became the first resident announced for Las Vegas’s brand new Hakkasan nightclub, but he wouldn’t be the last. Set to headline 46 gigs at MGM’s future establishment and 22 at the Wet Republic day parties, Harris is followed by Tiësto, who has just announced a similar deal. Over the course of his 20-month residency, set to kick off in April, Tiësto pledges to bring fresh young talent through the MGM each week and will try not to repeat opening acts. While he also talks at length about Hakkasan’s production quality, he also notes that he will be spending most of his time and focus for 2013 in Las Vegas — aside from a few festivals.
