Matt Goss set to return to the Strip at The Mirage

It’s tempting to say the return of Matt Goss to the Strip is no mirage, but his host hotel quashes that pun.

Goss is indeed expected back on the Strip this year, heading to The Mirage and its 1Oak nightclub for an extended residency. Word of Goss’ booking seeped out on the Bandisintown ticket website and application, which has listed at least 21 dates for Goss at 1Oak beginning Sept. 29 and running through mid-December.

That Sept. 29 date makes sense because it is also Goss’s birthday. But it doesn’t make sense because the room is undergoing renovations to allow for Goss’ live show, and the overhaul is likely to last through early October. Tickets are not yet on sale; the website has merely posted a collection of prospective upcoming dates for Goss at 1Oak.

Goss has offered no comment on this upcoming extended engagement. MGM Resorts is expected to make a formal announcement about Goss at 1Oak in the next several days. The venue will continue to serve as a nightclub — it is among the Hakkasan Group’s collection of clubs on the Strip — and is to be used as a multipurpose facility.

Until then, an educated estimation of the earliest date for Goss’ launch is closer to mid-October. Expect him to headline a schedule similar to the weekend dates he played while headlining the Gossy Room (now Cleopatra’s Barge) at Caesars Palace for 6½ years.

Goss has not performed a ticketed show in Las Vegas since closing at Caesars Palace last September. Reportedly, he has since been in serious talks with officials at Venetian/Palazzo and Caesars Entertainment before landing at The Mirage, which is conveniently just next door to the north of Caesars Palace.
