Pitbull Talks About Giving fans the Time of Their Lives in Vegas

Prior to kicking off his mini-residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Mr. 305 talked to Vegas.com about becoming Mr. 702!

Take a look at the article below!

¡Dale! All we can say is that when (not if) you go to see Pitbull at Planet Hollywood, make sure you wear your dancing shoes; you’ll be moving, shaking and dropping in ways you maybe didn’t know were possible.

Kicking off his seven-show, “Time of Our Lives” residency last night with his chart-topping “Don’t Stop the Party,” it took one word out of Mr. Worldwide’s mouth to have the 7,000-member audience in the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood up on their feet and dancing.

Joined onstage by his band and his troupe of sumptuous dancers, the suave Miami rapper entertained the crowd with a variety of his best known American hits as well as some of his old school classics from his debut album “M.I.A.M.I.” (an abbreviation for Money Is A Major Issue).

Prior to the opening night, we had a chance to sit down with the mega-star and discovered why this concert is especially important to him.

“To me, Vegas is an honor and an amazing opportunity,” Pitbull explained. “But more than anything, because of my family being from Cuba, Havana is what spawned the idea for Vegas. So once everything went down with the revolution in Cuba, everybody shot up to Vegas, you know, Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel and what they did up there. So, to be able to play in Vegas is something that is deeply rooted, a tremendous honor and also a big step in our career.”

Opening his show with a video montage explaining the revolution in Cuba to the audience and relating that to his humble upbringing, Pitbull offered concertgoers insight to his personal life and the meaning behind his Vegas show before even stepping foot on the stage.

However, once the mega-star was ushered onstage via smoke bursts and an unforgettable laser light show, the party kicked up to 11.

“I say, y’all having a good time out there?” Pitbull questioned and the crowd affirmatively answered with a simultaneous wild scream.

“When it comes to the show, it’s all about energy, all about having a great time, for two hours I would say,” said Pitbull. “We are going to try to, in one way or another, give it the Vegas remix but more than anything it’s just all about fun.”

And while we are not perfectly clear on what Pitbull meant by “Vegas remix” we are pretty confident that it had everything to do with energizing effects such the massive fire plumes that shot off when he performed his 2014 smash hit “Fireball.”

Not just fun for the audience, it is very clear that Pitbull loves performing all of his songs, “Fireball” in particular, and it shows: “The number that I think has a lot of ‘Vegas’ to it and even when I perform it on tour, it would be ‘Fireball,’” he said. “I mean, that record right there, I think, embodies everything that has to do with Vegas…Vegas itself being a fireball, Vegas itself being a spot where everybody goes, you know, Sin City – what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and ‘Fireball,’ to me, has that energy; it’s like evil vs. good so I can’t wait to perform that and really give it that Vegas twist.”
Whether the energetic performer was entertaining the crowds by working every angle of the stage (we want to know his cardio plan because he totally killed it), wowing us with special effects and enticing video displays, or kicking back a little bit while his sexy dancers took control, there was not a single dull moment in this party.
And if you’re hoping to catch Mr. 305 out and about in Sin City, you’ll most likely find him indulging in his favorite Cuban restaurants around town or partying in his hotel room: “I’m more of the low-key type and when it comes to the craziness, I just keep it in the hotel room,” he explained.” “I’m like the Gingerbread Man, catch me if you can!”

So for all of you party animals out there, if you want to add some spice to your Vegas vacay, head down to Planet Hollywood and catch Pitbull while he’s still here. And take this as a fair warning: You will be in party mode long after the show is over.

Upcoming performances: Ticket prices from $70.25, all performances start at 9 p.m.

Pitbull Makes History in Vegas

 
Pitbull recently did an interview with Las Vegas Magazine to talk about his upcoming Planet Hollywood limited-time engagement, Time of our Lives, at The Axis.

Read the article below!

In a week that finds him both enjoying the ongoing success of his album Dale and meeting with his team to lay recording plans for 2016, Pitbull shows no shortage of enthusiasm in discussing his upcoming “Time of Our Lives” multidate engagement at Planet Hollywood Resort. The Miami-born rapper performs seven dates between Sept. 23 and Oct. 7 at resort venue The Axis, adding him to the realm of Strip resident headliners and making him the first rapper in history to earn a Las Vegas extended engagement. It’s also happening during the final year of his seven-year plan for success, designated for “making history.”

“That’s definitely a part of making history right there, to even have this opportunity to perform in Vegas, because it’s something that I feel was … the idea was spawned and blossomed in Cuba, in Havana,” says the 34-year-old son of Cuban expatriates who named him Armando Christian Perez. Prerevolutionary Cuba’s tourism influenced the development of Las Vegas, and after Castro came to power many Cuban entertainers left the island nation for the Strip. “Vegas is something that is deeply rooted in culture for me and, I would say, my family, but to also be a part of what I would see as the (entertainment) elite in Vegas is amazing.”

It may have seemed an audacious goal more than a decade ago when Pitbull’s “Culo” was ubiquitously heard in Vegas nightclubs, but he has arguably made an indelible mark in the music industry and beyond. Dale is his ninth album and, due to its diversity of influences, serves as a metaphor for his hometown’s melting pot. He is in demand for endorsements, has his own brand of vodka, Voli, and an eponymous fragrance, hosted his inaugural New Year’s Eve television special in December and maintains a development deal for online content.
He can envision his name on Strip marquees for extended periods, though. “Obviously, that would be the goal, to have something permanent in Vegas,” says Pitbull. “But just to be able to have two weeks over there and really soak up the city, soak up the people, soak up the energy … for us on our career side it’s great. It’s only going to give us more ideas for records and opportunities, but more than anything it’s amazing to have this opportunity, and I’m still in awe about it.”

During his residency, Pitbull also plans to break ground on the Vegas version of his successful Sports Leadership & Management charter school in Miami. Florida recently made Pitbull its official tourism ambassador in recognition of his often-expressed civic pride, and politicians are rumored to have attempted to curry favor in advance of next year’s presidential primaries.

Pitbull has his eyes on a different prize, though. “Vegas is what it is now, and Cuba’s going to reopen,” he says. “I’m hoping to be the bridge between them, and be the one that performs in Vegas and also gets the chance to have a residency in Cuba once it completely opens up.”

Planet Hollywood Resort, 9 p.m. Sept. 23, 25-26 & 30, Oct. 2-3 & 7, $39-$169 plus tax and fee. 800.745.3000 Ticketmaster

Pitbull Plans to make his Vegas Residency Permanent.

 
Mr. 305 is taking over the 702 with his seven-date Sin City residency that launches September 23rd.

Pit’s Time of Our Lives limited-time engagement will take place at Planet Hollywood Resort’s theater, The Axis, from September 23rd through October 7th with tickets ranging from $36 to $169 (without fees).

This morning, September 10th, Pitbull talked with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, On Air with Ryan and revealed that he is planning on making his stay in Vegas permanent. 

“When everything went down in the Revolutionary War in Cuba, basically the mob and everybody went to Vegas. So for me, it’s not only an honor like I said before, but it’s also deeply-rooted. So we’re going to take it from a temporary residency to a permanent residency!” said Armando on his Vegas shows.

In the interview he also mentioned his guest appearance on FOX’s hit TV-show, Empire. Pit will be playing himself and he will perform the song, “No Doubt About It” with Jussie Smollett who plays Jamal Lyon, the new head Empire Records.

“I come on,  I do a performance and then me and Lucious have a conversation about some business,” he describes his guest role on Empire. “And me and Cookie have a conversation about what we got going on down here in Miami. It was a lot of fun.”

At the beginning of the interview he also said that he was about to go into a meeting for his World Tour next year!
