PURE Nightclub inside Caesars Palace celebrated seven years of pure success with a very special live performance by musician and producer Wyclef Jean on Tuesday, March 27. The award-winning nightclub opened its doors on December 31, 2004 with an unforgettable evening hosted by Mariah Carey which set the standard for celebrity filled events in Las Vegas nightlife. Since then, the mega-club has welcomed A-list celebrities and performers to enjoy a unique experience, and last night was no exception.
Arriving around midnight, the singer hit the red carpet dressed in a fashionable all white outfit, wicker fedora and baby blue loafers. While on the carpet Jean exclaimed how honored it was to be celebrating a club that has done so well in the industry. The songwriter had all eyes on him as he made his way through the legendary walkways of PURE while taking time to shake hands with admiring clubgoers. Arriving at his VIP booth on the main stage, Jean immediately took his spot, and began dancing where all his fans could see.
The multi-talented artist took the liberty of meeting his neighboring partygoers at the VIP booth next to him and invited their party to have a cocktail with him. The humbling singer spent a lot of the evening with his admirers as he danced and took pictures with many from the crowd. As Jean prepared for his unforgettable performance he spent some time dancing in the DJ booth with resident DJs MIKEATTACK and Cyberkid.
Around 1 a.m. Jean took his place atop the DJ booth with electric guitar in hand. PURE Nightclub had no idea what was in store for them as the one-of-a-kind performer took reveling clubgoers on an hour long, cultural and musically historical journey. Playing his own renditions of “No Woman No Cry,” “Fu-Gee- La,” “Sweetest Girl,” “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Guantanamera” and many more, he had partygoers on their feet dancing and singing along. About half-way through this mini-concert, Jean threw his fedora into the crowd and shouted, “Make some noise!” and the packed mega-club soared as confetti flew through the air. Jumping into the crowd, the star began a countdown, “Ten, nine, eight…three, two, one, happy seven year anniversary PURE!” he shouted and the crowd went crazy!
Wyclef Jean gave PURE Nightclub a truly memorable birthday celebration. Since its inception, PURE has welcomed celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Britney Spears, the Kardashians, Rihanna and more, making it the leading pioneer of Vegas nightlife. Being dubbed No. 1 Club in the country by E! Entertainment, PURE’s celebration last night took its reputation to an unparalleled level and set the tone for many more successful years to come.
Former NSYNC member and current Vegas host of “The Price Is Right Live!” Joey Fatone was also in attendance enjoying Jean’s performance from his VIP booth.
