Brandon Flowers and Lower Room Rates Will Open The Cosmopolitan
It’s little over five weeks from the Cosmo opening now, and while everyone’s been banging on about the New Year’s Eve entertainment, there’s been a little less thought about how opening night is going to go.
And now we’re thinking the answer to that is “pretty well”, seeing as rockstar journo Norm Clarke announced in his column yesterday that Brandon Flowers will do a poolside gig to open the gaffe on 15 December.
According to Norm, tickets will only be available through the Cosmo’s “social media channels”, ie their Facebook page and Twitter account. According to Facebook, we should stay tuned for details today.
Meanwhile, as we reported on our sister site HotelChatter on Friday, it looks like rooms have, um, opened up for opening night – for $300 (it was previously listed as sold out). And prices have dropped straight after opening: $250 on the 16th, $275 for the weekend and as low as $160 the following Monday (last time we checked they were $175 at their lowest point).
All in all, good news. For us, at least. Hopefully that’s not an indication of bad news for them.
