Pulse Palooza Talent Announced

Have you registered yet for Pulse 2014? If not, what are you waiting for! Did you know that in addition to great networking, hearing from industry thought leaders and discovering how to use cloud as a growth engine for your business…you’re also invited to a private rock concert that will have you rockin’ the night away!

Imagine being entertained by not one, but TWO headline acts. First up, the Grammy-nominated band Fall Out Boy, fresh off of two sold-out tours for their #1 album, Save Rock and Roll.

Hailing from Chicago, Fall Out Boy—Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums)—has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and other prestigious publications. They have performed on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and many more.

Up next? None other than the rock legend and icon, Elvis Costello! From the iconic “Pump It Up” to “Allison” to “Every Day I Write the Book,” every song is a hit…and instantly recognizable!

Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint.

So get pumped and get ready to rock – this is one evening you will not want to miss! And it all takes place in one of the great music venues in the country today: the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Tuesday, February 24th  |  MGM Grand Garden Arena  |  7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
