OneRepublic invited VIP’s and the press to a night of great music, food and island-inspired cocktails. This was part of their Native Summer US Tour appearance at the Mandalay Bay Resort.
We were brought to a special VIP cabana to enjoy cocktails and food while waiting for our private meeting with OneRepublic. Later the party moved upstairs for a chance to speak to the group backstage.
The beach setting provided a romantic backdrop for OneRepublic group’s latest songs and fan’s favorites. Their musical choices included “Feel Again“, “Dreaming Out Loud“, “Waking Up“, “Native“, “Native Repackage“, “If I Lose Myself” (Alesso vs OneRepublic) and more.
With One Republic’s new music video “I Lived” and popular “Native repack” album, most of their music can be found on ITUNES and AMAZON.
The OneRepublic Native Summer World Tour is on their way to Slovenia, Latvia and Estonia along with the Czech Republic, countries that are not usually on celebrities world tours, as well as Ireland, England, Belgium, France, Portugal, Austria, Russia, Italy, Spain, Germany and Poland.
This is part of OneRepublics debut of a new global campaign that brings to life the concept that the best “you” is the “summer you.”
OneRepublics presenting sponsor Malibu, the original coconut liquor and Caribbean rum blend, served some of their signature cocktail recipes this evening and gave us a few to share.
‘Malibu is a brand that has always embodied the spirit of summer and this year, we’re making sure it’s bigger and better than ever before,” said Brian Mequit, Vice President, Rum and Liquors, Pernod Ricard USA. “Our Best Summer Ever campaign is based on the notion that ‘summer you’ is the happiest, most carefree version of you.”
Pernod Ricard USA is the premium spirits and wine company in the U.S. and the largest subsidiary of Paris, France-based Pernod Ricard SA, which employs more than 18, 000 people worldwide.
