The partnership will further enhance The AXIS, the newly transformed 7,000-seat live entertainment venue in Las Vegas, with state-of-the-art acoustics Powered by Monster™. With a shared passion for the very best in entertainment, which includes an enthusiasm for a world-class audio sensory experience, Caesars and Monster announce their new partnership by introducing the newly-named theater, The AXIS™ Powered by Monster™. Fueled by the high-performance sound characteristic of the Monster brand, The AXIS gives concertgoers the opportunity to enjoy the exceptional audio experience made possible by Pure Monster Sound®.
“At Monster, we are thrilled to team up with Caesars and Planet Hollywood to sponsor this truly amazing theater and to bring the unparalleled Pure Monster Sound® experience to its visitors,” said Head Monster, Noel Lee. “Monster recognizes the global influence of Caesars and its family of brands, known for their unique combination of great service, excellent products, unsurpassed distribution, operational excellence and technology leadership – all characteristics that Monster consumers have come to expect from our brand.”
The AXIS boasts one of the largest video and projection installations in the world, with projections from 60 ultra-high-definition projectors that cover more than 200 degrees of the audience chamber. The walls of the audience chamber are wrapped in custom fabric designed to optimize the impact of the video content which will carry over into the stage area with 2,200 square feet of Panasonic® high-definition 10 millimeter LED walls that can be reconfigured to meet the needs of various productions. In addition to an immersive visual experience, a massive array of 21-inch subwoofers ensures guests feel the music as well as they hear it. Monster will now enhance this amazing sound system with Pure Monster Sound®.
“When looking for a presenting sponsor for The AXIS, it was important that we find the right heritage, quality and brand to align with the top-notch entertainment experience at Planet Hollywood,” said Jason Gastwirth, Caesars Entertainment senior vice president of marketing and entertainment. “Monster combines their high-performance, rich audio experience with Caesars premium entertainment to bring the best of both worlds to our artists and fans. As soon as our fans see the Monster name, they will understand the level of dedication we have committed to delivering a powerful music experience.”
The AXIS is quickly becoming the epicenter of A-list entertainment in Las Vegas from an all-star roster of celebrity concertgoers along with a soon-to-be-announced lineup of today’s hottest musical acts, courtesy of the venue’s exclusive booking partner Live Nation®. Now, with this partnership, concertgoers will also have access to an exclusive world of phenomenal sound with discounts and special offers on Monster® products, simply by purchasing a ticket at The AXIS.
