“What a great way to close out our opening year,” said Richard “Boz” Bosworth, president and CEO of JC Hospitality, owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have Lizzo ring in the New Year with us, and we look forward to celebrating everything 2022 has in store here at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.”

“Since opening The Theater this September, we have had unparalleled talents come through our venue, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome our first worldwide megastar,” said Bobby Reynolds, senior vice president of AEG Presents Las Vegas. “We are thrilled to have Lizzo join us for our final performance of 2021. The Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will be the place to be on New Year’s Eve.”
