Cancun’s entertainment destination, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, to host superstar lineup
Palace Resorts is pleased to announce the most recent additions to the brand’s diverse 2016 entertainment roster. Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort will host performances by two unforgettable icons — Grammy-winning funk group Kool & The Gang and legendary “I Will Survive” singer Gloria Gaynor on November 18 and 19, 2016. The following month for the holiday season, Moon Palace Arena will transform into a visual spectacle when Cirque Éloize ID embarks on a limited engagement residency from December 22, 2016 through January 3, 2017*.
The powerhouse combination of Grammy winners Kool & The Gang and Gloria Gaynor promise an electrifying evening like no other. Kool & The Gang, currently celebrating the group’s 50th anniversary after selling more than 70 million albums worldwide, are best known for classic songs such as “Celebration,” “Cherish,” and “Summer Madness.” Over the course of their illustrious career, the band has earned two Grammys, seven American Music Awards, nine Top Ten hits, 31 gold and platinum albums and 25 Top Ten R&B hits. Gloria Gaynor, whose music career has spanned more than 30 years, is responsible for definitive hits including “Never Can Say Goodbye,” “Let Me know” and the greatest disco anthem of all time, “I Will Survive.” In 1980, “I Will Survive” received a Grammy award for Best Disco Recording, and the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2012.
Both Kool & the Gang and Gloria Gaynor will delight guests during a dinner show from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at Moon Palace Arena, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Guests will also enjoy a dance-filled intermission by DJ Carlos Huerta between performances. Tickets range from $129-$249 for VIP, Diamond, Platinum and Gold sections.
Leading contemporary circus, Cirque Éloize ID, is a worldwide phenomenon that has dazzled more than 3,500,000 spectators in over 440 cities and 40 countries. Their thrilling shows have caught the eye of viewers of all ages since launching in Canada in 1993. Winners of a Drama Desk Award in 2014 for “Unique Theatrical Experience,” the troupe’s jaw-dropping performances have also been recognized by the 26th Grand Prix du Conseil des Arts de Montréal in 2010 and The Festival Mondial du Cirque de demain in Paris in 2013. The two-hour spectacle will commence at 8:30 p.m. in the Moon Palace Arena. Tickets range from $49-$159 for VIP, Diamond, Platinum and Gold sections.
