Paul and his firm Steelman Partners have designed most of the modern casino landscape, starting with his work with Steve Wynn and Joel Bergman designing The Mirage in 1987 and expanding to all corners of the Earth. Steelman Partners are currently working with Genting to transition the partially completed Echelon project into the gleaming new Resorts World Las Vegas.

Dr. David Schwartz
We have no idea what Dave is gonna do this year.

Bottle service will be offered (we hope).

We expect The Showroom to be at capacity. Since this is a free, non-ticketed event we cannot guarantee entrance. Seating will be available on first-come basis, with line priority given to those who bring a box of donuts to share at the time The Showroom is opened. Chuckmonster can be bribed with Boston Creme donuts throughout the weekend.

In addition, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith will join Hagar and Anthony for a special CHICKENFOOT encore."
