Tiësto gets his own Bellagio Fountains show

The Bellagio is among eight MGM Resorts International casinos on the Las Vegas Strip that will be offering free Wi-Fi

Frank Sinatra. Elvis Presley. Elton John. Celine Dion. Tiësto.

You may be thinking "Vegas headliner" when you read the aforementioned names. But come September 17, those five artists will soon share another major local accolade: Their music was used to score a Bellagio Fountains show.

On Wednesday evening, right around sunset, the Fountains of Bellagio will debut its latest presentation, set to a new medley of songs culled from Tiësto's recent, Vegas-inspired album, A Town Called Paradise. Not only will it mark the first EDM score for the free aquatic Strip attraction, but the only time the fountains' creator, WET Design, has collaborated with the composer of source music used for a performance. Spectators can expect to hear three Paradise numbers within the medley and see new visual elements created exclusively for the show.

Can you imagine watching the graceful, iconic arcs of water crossing and shooting into the sky to the refrain: "I like us better when we're wasted"? Should that number be included in the medley, it would certainly have more to do with the Las Vegas Strip than "My Heart Will Go On."
