Image for will.i.am for Marquee Sydney’s opening weekend

What happens in Vegas is coming to Sydney, with the announcement of Stateside chart-climber will.i.am for Marquee’s opening weekend. The party with Afrojack on Friday 30 March is set to be by invite-only, while Saturday 31 March is the public opening headlined by the Black Eyed Pea in his DJ guise. While there’s a cover charge on the door, no presale tickets will be made available.

The visit from will.i.am sees him on the promo trail for his new album, which features input from Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and a cast of pop names. The new superclub at The Star will be operating at full capacity for its big reveal, with a ‘30-foot projection stage’ and LED DJ booth in the main room, a ‘stylish library style room offering an intimate lounge experience’ (and a working fireplace, naturally), a smaller room The Boom Box with its own sound system and outdoor patio, and finally ‘a chill-out area with unparalleled views of the Sydney skyline and a unisex bathroom lounge’. We’ve got five double passes to give away for Saturday as well.

His Macbook has an acid sticker on it. He's connecting with the punters.

Ha ha, when I first read this piece I thought of the following word: manipulation.

I can imagine the journalist, JackT, received this in his inbox and approached the ITM editor and asked him/her if he could write a piece about how big a **** will.i.am is, but that said editor said no. I imagine the conversation went a little like this...

JackT: I just got this information on that sh*t c*** will.i.am playing at Marquee. Can i write about how big a douche he is and that he sums up everything that's wrong with EDM?

Editor: No, you cannot.

JackT: Why not?

Editor: Do a positive piece as we're offering five double passes to the gig.

JackT: Seriously? Can that be classified as an actual prize?

Editor: Shut your door on the way out....

JackT: But boss, I honestly doubt 10 people will turn up on their own accord. How do you expect me to write a favourable piece and promote this competition?

Editor: Just do your job!

Jack has the best conversations with himself.

But, but, but...I am the Editor! BRAIN-MELT. I'm also a fan of speculative fiction, so thank you!

I was unaware of the ITM hierarchy. Sorry JackT! Nonetheless, I stand by my 'manipulative' comment.

Ha ha, I was unaware of the ITM hierarchy. JackT, I apologise.

I stand by my manipulative comment, though.

Will.i.am looks like a cross between a Jew-Amish-Private school boy, especially mistaking those black ear-phones for Jew curls.
