Uberdiva Beyonce will headline Revel's grand opening festivities Memorial Day weekend.
The long-awaited announcement of who will play during the $2.4 billion mega-resort's official opening festivities May 25-27 was made this morning on Revel's Facebook page. The super-duper-star warbler will perform in Ovation Hall, the casino's 5,500-seat performance space.
This is exactly the kind of coup that was expected from the property: The engagement is not part of a bigger tour by Beyonce, but an exclusive-to-Revel booking. Nonetheless, the announcement is sure to disappoint classic-rock devotees who, during the past few weeks, have been teased by speculation that, among others, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin or even a Paul McCartney-Ringo Starr pairing would be the centerpiece of the Memorial Day weekend bash.
Tickets--prices of which are TBA--for all three performances go on sale at 10 a.m. April 6. Revel officials are encouraging the public to purchase them online at www.ticketmaster.com.
