Deadmau5 - Vegas Mayor Announces Deadmau5 Day
Canadian music producer Deadmau5 is having a special day dedicated to him in Las Vegas in the New Year (12) by the city's mayor.
The artist, real name Joel Zimmerman, is launching a new residency at Sin City's XS Nightclub in a partnership with Wynn Las Vegas.
And to mark the launch, Mayor Carolyn Goodman has officially proclaimed 2 January, 2012 as 'Deadmau5 Day' - a move welcomed by local club owners.
Jesse Waits, co-owner of XS, says in a statement, "The following for Deadmau5 is phenomenal, and I applaud Mayor Goodman for recognizing both his remarkable persona alongside his ability to drive visitor traffic from fans traveling (sic) across the globe to experience his live sets."
