For the third consecutive year, HartBeat Productions and Kevin Hart kicked off his wildly popular HartBeat Weekend on Friday, September 2, 2016, at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The jam-packed weekend featured two back-to-back comedy performances by Kevin Hart & Friends Comedy All-Stars at The Chelsea, an explosive concert by Grammy award-winning duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at Boulevard Pool, and celebrity after-parties at Marquee Nightclub and CliQue Bar & Lounge.
Hart hosted stand-up performances for fans, as some of Hart’s favorite comedian friends—Jay Phillips, Lil Rel Howery, and Rodney Perry—kept the crowd laughing throughout the night. The evening concluded with stage-smashing comedian, Tony Roberts.
“Tonight, we kicked it off with a bang,” said Hart.
Following an advanced movie screening of Hart’s new action stand-up comedy What Now? (in theaters October 14), guests were invited to an after-party at Marquee Nightclub, which featured a special live performance by Travis Scott.
Special guest O.T. Genasis kicked off the outdoor concert, followed by a high-energy performance by hip-hop legend Busta Rhymes. Hart then took to the stage to introduce Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Fans sang and danced along as the duo performed a number of their smash hits—including “Thrift Shop,” “Same Love,” “Can’t Hold Us,” and “Downtown.” During the duo’s electrifying set, Macklemore crowd surfed and later called participants up to the stage to battle in a dance off. Hart squared up against a fan and showed off his best moves as the crowd broke out into a roar.
Hart closed the show with a celebratory Snapchat video, in which he thanked his fans and The Cosmopolitan for an incredible and successful HartBeat Weekend.
