Atlantis, The Palm’s guests can enjoy front row seats, as they watch 2020’s largest live event via a ‘vertical concert format’ coupled with the world’s largest pyrotechnic fireworks display from the comfort of their balconies
Proving that KISS and Atlantis, The Palm never do anything by halves, the iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, multi-platinum selling band is joining forces with Dubai’s leading entertainment resort this NYE to announce the biggest concert event of the year. Sending off 2020 in KISS style, guests staying at the resort are invited to watch the largest KISS show of the band’s storied career live from the comfort of their own room box suites.
With the performance set to take place on a specially built stage located on The Royal Beach, guests staying at Atlantis, The Palm over New Year’s Eve can take advantage of front row seats to 2020’s largest live event via a vertical concert format. After enjoying dinner at one of six restaurants, guests staying in a Palm View Room can enjoy vistas of the main stage and a record-breaking pyrotechnic fireworks display, ringing in the NYE from the comfort of their balconies. A five-night package will start from $7,431 (AED 27,290) per room and include a NYE dinner as well as an in-room food and beverage package.
As a first of its kind hybrid event, not only will the concert be live-ticketed but also live streamed. Filmed with more than 50 cameras and 360-degree views, the show will be produced by City Drive Studios and will serve as the season premiere for a series of episodes for Landmarks Live In Concert. The show can be seen globally with 1080p Livestream and ticketing powered by Tixr and available on any computer, mobile, and Apple TV.
Putting nearly 400 crew members back to work for the first time in eight months, 80 per cent of which will be UAE based, the production will take extraordinary on-site COVID protocols including daily testing and biometric crew wristbands to ensure highest safety standards for the entire event. The vertical concert layout also provides a safe social distancing environment with individual bathrooms, room service capabilities, contactless check-in and check-out, and a room for guests to stay the night in.
“We are incredibly excited that KISS, and City Drive Studios have chosen Atlantis Dubai for this first-of-its-kind initiative,” said Timothy Kelly, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Atlantis Dubai. “Atlantis has a reputation as being a trailblazer in the world of entertainment and we know that this first of its kind event will make for a memorable and record-breaking New Year’s Eve for our guests, whilst also ensuring that everyone adheres to social distancing requirements.”
“Working with KISS is an honour and dream come true for me. To be able to capture them in such an explosive and record-breaking way will certainly be a career highlight. This show will be unlike any other show or live stream of 2020,” says Daniel E Catullo III, creator, director and executive producer of Landmarks Live In Concert. “Logistically, this was the largest production I’ve ever undertaken with a pandemic making it all the more challenging. Our crew is comprised of more than 400 people, 80 per cent of whom are from the UAE. It has been a very complex show to put together, but we are happy to bring the world something of this size at a time when it is needed the most. It’s the perfect way to KISS 2020 GOODBYE.”
“With five months of planning, hundreds of crew, coordinating with the Dubai Government, major coordination with the band and the logistics of putting a rock show together during a global pandemic, this event will go down in the record books,” Daniel E Catullo III added.
The show will also feature a live pre-show that can be streamed for free. The KISS concert and pyro show will feature numerous price points to accommodate all New Year’s Eve celebrators safely from home. While the show will be broadcast live timed to midnight in Dubai, all of the streaming packages allow a replay option so that fans can re-watch timed to their own midnight festivities.
A five-night room package starts at $7,431 (AED 27,290) per room, excluding taxes – based on a minimum of two people sharing, staying a minimum of five nights. Packages include a New Year’s Eve dinner according to tier type with food and beverages from 6pm to 9pm, followed by front row balcony seats to the KISS 2020 GOODBYE concert inclusive of in-room beverage and snack packages.
