Usher, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort
Palace Resorts in Miami hosted the celebration of the year and closed out 2012 with international superstar and seven-time Grammy-Award winning singer and entertainer, Usher. The R&B singing sensation rocked the stage at an exclusive sold out concert at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun on December 29, 2012. Famous for his record-breaking Top 40 songs, Usher performed in front of more than fourteen thousand hotel guests, fans, VIPs and local government officials.
Usher kicked off the night with his mega hit, "Can't Stop Won't Stop." The two-hour set list included hits from his vast catalogue including throwback hits such as Nice & Slow, Let it Burn, as well as hits from his latest album Looking 4 Myself, including the hit, "Scream."
Following the concert, the hotel hosted local socialites, top hotel executives, local government officials and other hotel VIPs at The Grand opening of Moon Palace's new nightclub, Noir. The latest addition from the resort's multi-million dollar enhancement project, Noir offers a striking mix of cutting-edge design and glamorous nightlife. The 350 guests, who attended the exclusive after party at the nightclub, were joined by Noir's legendary French designer, Francois Frossard, one of the most progressive nightclub taste-makers in the United States. Guests danced the night away to dance tracks spun by DJ Cesar del Rio. Del Rio, a Spanish artist best known for his Balearic beats as well as for House, Techno and Lounge mixes, has spent the last 12 years as resident DJ for Privilege Ibiza, the world's largest nightclub, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort's club harks to the designer's new romantic design movement, infusing decadent and whimsical flavors. Frossard of Arkadia Nightclub and The Forge, was inspired by the film, "Tron" when creating Noir. Fusing the best of form, function and fantasy, Noir's underlying onyx tone features post-modern luminous accents playfully dotted between stark Alabaster sofas and deep cushioned booths, creating a dramatic and imaginative contrast for revelers. Noir, sure to raise the bar for all-inclusive decadence, will offer an upscale nightlife experience with live entertainment, a handcrafted specialty cocktail list and glamorous decor.
With live performances by international artists including Shakira, Enrique Iglesias and the Broadway hit, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, as well as upcoming performances by Air Supply and former Saturday Night Live cast members in 2013, Palace Resorts has elevated the traditional all-inclusive experience by offering guests the opportunity to Witness world-renowned live entertainment for unforgettable, "awe-inclusive" vacations.
