Thriller Villa, the 1.75 acre legendary Las Vegas hacienda last occupied by Michael Jackson, with stunning interior designed by Paulina Biggs Sparkuhl, is available.

If the $9.5 million price tag is too steep for you, you may still be able to see the place. The Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts curates collections on site, privately inviting VIP supporters to view the hacienda and its major exhibit. So for now, you can still toast two of history’s greatest showmen, amid the artifacts of their legacies.

Here’s just a taste of what visitors see, before entering the underground vaults which contain the Liberace Museum Collection.

Interested parties are invited to contact us for possibilities.

Performers a stunning hit as Chez Paulina expands venue capability

At a recent private party held by invitation of the owner of Thriller Villa, Chez Paulina, Ltd. orchestrated a special configuration of Neverland Chapel, meant to showcase local talent.

Las Vegas favorite Nieve Malandra first lead a trio including crowd-pleasing violinist Lydia Ansel and much-sought trumpeter Chandler Judkins, in the upper arches of the Chapel, during a cocktail underneath.  Not only was the visual effect stunning, the sound quality was so good that the guests at first thought the music was piped in.

After the initial Cocktail, Nieve made a costume change before adding Las Vegas pianist Dan Ellis to the lineup, on the house piano in the Grand Salon, accompanied by Nieve’s sultry vocals and Chandler’s brass.  The new approach of in-property venue change worked marvelously, and allowed for the guests to truly enjoy some of our city’s hottest entertainers close up.

World Premier of Art of Jimi Hendrix will be opening act in Artists Vault at Thriller Villa

Coveted artwork created by legendary guitarist emerges from forty-year legal battle

Select few invited to world premier of the artists proofs, in subterranean vault where Michael Jackson stashed his masterpieces.

 

When rock guitar catalyst Jimi Hendrix died in 1970 at the age of 27, many had already estimated the depth of his impact on music, performance and showmanship.  Few, however, knew the scope.

(c) Rolling StoneMost of Hendrix’s music would not be produced for publication until after his death, feeding a cataclysmic legal battle among heirs of his estate, as the legacy and its value grew.

And there is more.  In addition to creating the music that defined Woodstock and a generation, Hendrix put down on paper the images in his mind, which he often told friends and family he was constantly trying to define with his guitar.  Those images bore like names to the music they inspired.  Brilliant and thought provoking, they scream for interpretation.  The rights to the works have been tied up in court battles of the estate for four decades.

Until now.
