The Strip

Bliss Dance sculpture lights up The Park — PHOTOS

Bliss Dance, the 40 foot-tall sculpture created by artist Marco Cochrane, was unveiled and lit up Monday night as part of the grand opening of The Park.

Arena opening heightens competition among existing facilities

Before the title game even tipped off, the PAC-12 announced it was taking its basketball and going across the street to T-Mobile Arena in 2017. The move to the Strip’s newest, shiniest venue will boost attendance at the sold-out tournament by 42 percent, from around 13,000 to 18,500.

T-Mobile Arena filled with head-turning features — PHOTOS

The T-Mobile Arena opens Wednesday, but it’s been building to that crescendo for quite awhile. Take a look at some of the most impressive features as they appeared before the doors were ready to open.

Here’s who we think could sell out T-Mobile Arena

Although new stars are being added frequently to T-Mobile Arena’s line-up of shows, here are a few big names that we think could sell out the 20,000-seat venue.

For T-Mobile Arena, there’s no one-size-fits-all parking solution

T-Mobile Arena isn’t a one-configuration-fits-all type of venue. With flexible moving platforms, seats can be arranged in different ways to host concerts with a stage at one end of the building, performances in the round, boxing and mixed-martial-arts matches and hockey and basketball games.

New arena looks good from inside and the outside

I attempted to find a bad seat in the place of 20,000. But if there is one good thing that comes from building an arena with housing a professional hockey team in mind, it’s that such a sloped design doesn’t produce many poor angles for those paying to watch events.

It’s not just all about the arena, there’s also The Park

With all the hoopla around the opening of T-Mobile Arena behind New York-New York, it’s easy to forget another key related addition to the Strip will also be christened: The Park.
