It was our last night in Vegas and it was ABSOLUTELY HOT outside. After a long day of walking, visiting attractions and watching shows we decided to go back up to our room and wipe up all the sweat we had just released into the world. Well maybe I did. It was not relatively early since it was 10 PM, but in Vegas, that’s early. I know I’m sort of breaking the “Vegas Rule” with my first official post, which turns out to be a non-existent rule, but for you guys I’m fine going to a non-existent Vegas jail. Okay so I get out of the shower and look outside my window and there it was: A big rager on top of the Cosmopolitan!There was a massive stage where the pool used to be and tons of people. I’m not even sure if there were any seats since the whole area was so packed. I really thought this was a nightclub of some sort because of all the lights and balloons but it was actually a concert by “The Flaming Lips.” I don’t know if any of you heard of them but they were huge when their single (She Don’t Use Jelly) was released by Warner Brothers during the 1990s. They’re actually more well-known in the UK and in Europe since they had more than 1 song that everyone liked over there. The concert was staged based on their She Don’t Use Jelly music video just magnified enough to consume the whole rooftop.I was really waiting for at least one balloon to fall into the strip but not even 1 confetti flew into the street. Guh! If anyone saw me I would’ve looked like a kid watching a cat and a fishbowl. Just waiting for something to happen. Well the concert was so good. I was asking a few people online of who went and some were actually from Europe and the UK. I do agree with them that they throw one of the best concerts because of the inclusion of the audience. At one point the lead singer even jumps into a Hamster Ball and rides the crowd. That’s what the slides are for in the photos. If they came back this year to anywhere near southern California I’d probably pay to see it since their songs are perfect for concerts (perfect for singing with them while you’re loosening up in the crowd and getting crazy). Below are a few more photos of the ROOFTOP RAGER. I hope you guys enjoyed this post.
