Silk Sonic, the tantalizing duo of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, have announced that they will be bringing their music to the Las Vegas Strip beginning on February 25 at Dolby Live as part of “An Evening With Silk Sonic.”
“Its happening! The sexiest party of the year! Them Silk Sonic Boyz are performing Live in Las Vegas!” Mars tweeted. The run currently includes 13 dates at the 5,200-seat theater at the Park MGM, with the Live Nation presale slated to kick off at 1 p.m. ET today (January 19); the general public on-sale begins at 1 p.m. ET on Friday (January 21).
The shows are subject to the venue’s Health Check standards to reduce exposure to COVID-19, which requires masks be worn by all attendees and which could also require proof of full vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 test before entering the event or a rapid on-site COVID test.
“THE TERMS ARE LOCKED AND VEGAS MIGHT NOT EVER BE THE SAME JACK!! YOU’RE INVITED TO THE HOTTEST SHOW IN SIN CITY!” .Paak added about the first substantial run of gigs in support of the pair’s debut album, An Evening with Silk Sonic. The project debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart on the list dated November 27, and No.2 on the Billboard 200 after the lead single, “Leave the Door Open,” topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for eight weeks between April and July 2021.
Back in November, .Paak unveiled APESHIT INC., a new record label launched in collaboration with Universal Music Group.
.Paak is one of today’s most prolific artists, working as an acclaimed musician, songwriter, producer, and director and crossing a wide spectrum of creative content development. He can now add “label head” to his many accomplishments.
“I wanted to start a label that sets fire to a new generation of artists, who can play while performing,” said .Paak. “This label is going to be about passion, about feeling, about honesty. It’s about respect for the culture and art and it’s about heart.”
