Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy launched Spring Break with hosting duties and a performance at Pure in Caesar Palace late Saturday night.
The singer hit the stage with artists Ax and Tim Williams about 1:30 a.m. (so St. Patrick’s Day morning). Ax kicked off the mini-set with his new single “Upstairs,” with Williams following with “Confess.”
McCoy then entered the spotlight for his set that included “Bad By Myself,” “Stereo Heart,” “Cupid’s Hold,” the chart-topping “Ass Back Home” and then the finale, his smash hit “Billionaire.”
McCoy and his boys returned to their VIP booth for drinking, dancing and mingling with fans. Thanks to Brenton Ho of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
