I just got a press release announcing David Cook’s appearance on FOX’s New Years Eve Live show. The show is set to take place at the Mirage in Las Vegas on New Years Eve:
AMERICAN IDOL Season Seven winner David Cook and Grammy Award-winning musician Scott Weiland are set to perform at The Mirage in Las Vegas on NEW YEARS EVE LIVE airing Wednesday, Dec. 31 (11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET live; CT/MT/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
This year, NEW YEARS EVE LIVE goes coast-to-coast with hosts Spike Feresten of TALKSHOW WITH SPIKE FERESTEN and Mark Thompson of HOLE IN THE WALL when they report live from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Feresten and Thompson will count down to 2009 with celebrity guests and performances by some of the year hottest musical artists. As 2008 comes to a close, the annual celebration will move to New York City to ring in the new year as the world-famous New Year Eve Ball makes its descent into Times Square. Additional musical guests and artists scheduled to appear to be announced.
However, this totally caught my attention:
Shortly after midnight, world-renowned daredevil Robbie Knievel will attempt a death-defying 200-foot jump over the recently renovated Mirage Volcano. Knievel New Year Eve jump marks the 41st anniversary of his father Evel Knievel bone-shattering jump at Caesars Palace.
…How better to draw the world attention to the new Mirage and our fiery main attraction then with a spectacular stunt on one of the hottest nights of the year? said Scott Sibella, President and COO of The Mirage. …Having Robbie jump our new Volcano on New Year Eve will provide the perfect cap to our multi-million dollar transformation.
