T-Mobile and joint venture partners Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and MGM Resorts International have inked a deal for the new Las Vegas arena to be officially named T-Mobile Arena in a multi-year naming rights agreement negotiated by AEG Global Partnerships. No financial terms were disclosed.
Events already booked at the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena include Opening Night starring the Killers on April 6, UFC 200 in July, Harlem Globetrotters, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, Janet Jackson, UNLV/Duke college basketball, and the 2016 PBR World Finals. Sources also told Billboard that a reunited Guns 'N Roses will be among the first acts to play the arena. The venue will have numerous VIP experiences, highlighted by Hyde Lounge, an exclusive nightclub with premium views of sports and entertainment action below.
T-Mobile customers will be rewarded with such benefits as a dedicated fast-track VIP venue entrance at every event. At select events, they can access event tickets and premium VIP experiences reserved exclusively for T-Mobile customers, pre-sales, and seat upgrade opportunities. Charging stations will be located throughout the arena concourse for all patrons.
