Big Spending in Vegas

Big Spending in Vegas

If you think that a big night in Las Vegas can cost a pretty penny, then you haven’t formed a verbal contract with Deadmau5 to play a Bon Jovi song during one of his sets at the XS nightclub.  That is exactly what happened with Las Vegas “whale” (big-time gambler) Don Johnson, who offered to pay the DJ $200,000 to include the song “Livin’ on a Prayer” during his February 21, 2011 appearance.  The next day when Johnson left Las Vegas on his private jet he had not paid Deadmau5’s agent.  Read all about the story here.
