The Mirage, a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM), today announced details of a dynamic redesign to its signature Volcano. Known the world over for its iconic Strip-front feature, The Mirage has joined forces with legendary Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, Indian tabla sensation Zakir Hussain and Fountains of Bellagio design firm WET, to create an all-new audio/visual spectacle. The top-to-bottom overhaul is the final step in the property's ongoing transformation and is scheduled for completion late 2008.
The Mirage set a new standard for innovative Strip-front attractions when The Volcano first erupted in 1989. Raising the bar once again, The Mirage has enlisted the Grammy Award-winning talents of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician Mickey Hart and Indian musical virtuoso Zakir Hussain to create and perform a one-of-a-kind soundtrack arranged exclusively for the iconic blast.
