Posted at 1:49 PM, Dec 31, 2015
A-list performers on New Year's Eve are expected to shine as bright as the eight-minute firework spectacle shot from several towering Las Vegas Strip rooftops.
Bruno Mars at The Cosmopolitan, Maroon 5 at Mandalay Bay and Nicki Minaj at Drai's Nightclub will keep revelers entertained before and after midnight.
Tourism officials expect 332,000 people to crowd the traffic-free Strip and squeeze underneath Fremont Street's massive video canopy on Thursday night.
Partyers also can find a host of tribute bands along downtown's Fremont Street, including Fan Halen, No Duh and Red Not Chili Peppers.
It'll be a near-freezing New Year's Eve come midnight. The National Weather Service forecasts temperatures dropping from the mid-40's to mid-30's by 2016's arrival.
