They changed the music, then they changed the world. 27 – A Musical Adventure is honoring six prominent well-known music icons who all left the world at the age of 27. Gone way too soon were: Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Robert Johnson, Jim Morrison, and Amy Winehouse.
The show opened last weekend at its new home inside 24 Oxford in the newly remodeled Virgin Hotel in Las Vegas, which is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton. Formerly Hard Rock Hotel, anyone who has been in Vegas before has been sure to make a stop there. 24 Oxford was the first location for Virgin Records, so the name fits very well.
Throughout the show, the audience is taken on a retrospective journey of sight and sound, showcasing each artist’s respective contributions to our musical landscape. The show culminates with the artists all performing together on one stage in a rock concert like no other. The intimate room of approximately 242 seats and a standing space by the bar for another 35 was filled Wednesday night for media of which I was one.
“27 has been in the works for more than 15 years. The show received a tremendous response across multiple generations when it debuted at the Troubadour, and we are excited about the residency at the new Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Virgin is synonymous with music, so we think it’s a great fit,” said Ramy El-Batrawi of Hen Entertainment and co-writer/co-producer of 27 – A Musical Adventure.
“We are excited to be able to announce that live entertainment is back,” said Gary Scott, COO of JC Hospitality, owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. “27 – A Musical Adventure inside 24 Oxford will highlight the talents of performers who bring the legendary artists to life and we’re proud for this rock retrospective show to kickoff off our entertainment lineup.”You can buy tickets for 27 – A Musical Adventure with prices starting at $65 plus tax and fees.
