Australian DJ sensation Anthony Maniscalco, better known as Hook N Sling, took over Light at Mandalay Bay on Wednesday night.
Before his highly anticipated set, Hook N Sling and his manager dined at chef Akira Back’s nearby Kumi Japanese Restaurant and Bar for dinner, where the duo enjoyed sushi.
Wearing a bright blue jacket and colorful Nikes, Hook N Sling hit the stage at 12:45 a.m. Thursday playing a set of dance and electric sounds, including the hit “Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat.”
Spotted at Light: boxing legend and Las Vegas resident Mike Tyson sipping champagne, plus, skateboarder Chaz Ortiz.
