BUD LIGHT BRINGS HEADLINE CONCERT TO NIGHTCLUB & BAR SHOW FEATURING GUEST PERFORMANCE BY GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING MULTI-PLATINUM SUPERSTAR NELLY

Over the past few years, Bud Light has taken over cruise ships, hotels and even an entire town. For its next act, Bud Light, the Gold Beer Sponsor of the Nightclub & Bar Show, will create the ultimate #UpForWhatever experience at the Welcome Kickoff Party with an unforgettable concert from multi-platinum superstar Nelly.

“Our customers have really enjoyed the ‘Up For Whatever’ experiences, from the ‘Epic Night’ spot during Super Bowl XLVIII to last summer’s incredible Whatever, USA, experience in Colorado,” said Alexander Lambrecht, vice president, Bud Light. “This Up For Whatever concert will keep that spirit going, so expect it to be the most unique party experience at the 2015 Nightclub & Bar Show.”

For one night only, the Palms Pool located at the Palms Casino Resort will transform into a fully immersive experience for an unforgettable night. Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum superstar Nelly will headline the event as part of the 30th Anniversary Celebration.

“Nelly is the perfect artist to give a high energy performance that will set the tone for an exciting three days of events and parties,” says Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group and host and executive producer of Spike TV's Bar Rescue. “The Bud Light #UpForWhatever activations have been a big hit, and we are so thrilled to bring this unique party experience to the attendees of our 30th Anniversary Nightclub & Bar Show.”
