The entertainment industry is eagerly anticipating the introduction of blockchain, or “non-fungible tokenized” tickets. One Las Vegas casino is taking a giant leap ahead with its first such offering: concert ticket packages for Jabbawockeez’s performance at MGM Grand on Friday night. The event will be entirely nft-tickets and available to purchase only through Ticketmaster Verified Fan
The “MGM Resorts Launches Las Vegas’ First NFT-Ticketed Event With Jabbawockeez” is a ticketed event that will be taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The show will feature the world famous dance troupe, Jabbawockeez. Read more in detail here: mgm las vegas hotels.
With the legendary dance team Jabbawockeez’s newest show, TIMELESS, MGM Resorts International is offering the first-ever NFT-enabled live performance experience in Las Vegas this spring.
MGM Resorts has created the Jabbawockeez White Glove NFT Ticket Collection in collaboration with NFT leader YellowHeart. Through the YellowHeart app, travelers may now buy a limited number of 1,110 Jabbawockeez White Glove NFT Tickets for performances next month.
The first NFT-ticketed events will take place on April 7 for Jabbawockeez’s 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. concerts, and will continue on April 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, and 29-30.
The monochromatic digital ticket evolves into a Jabbawockeez video and a digital key that unlocks special advantages when holders of the non-fungible token redeem their ticket during the concert. NFT owners will also get access to VIP seats, behind-the-scenes access, and meet-and-greet chances during the exhibition.
Limited-edition content and products are also included, as well as future offers from MGM Resorts and Jabbawockeez. Finally, NFT owners will get a distinctive “History in Motion” collectable honoring this event in the group’s history 24 hours after the concert.
Early theater entry, premium seating, a Jabbawockeez meet and greet, exclusive Jabbawockeez merchandise, unique digital collectibles and TIMELESS content, status as a founding member of the MGM Rewards-Jabbawockeez NFT community, and a $100 food and beverage voucher for use at MGM Grand’s LEVEL UP lounge within 24 hours after the show are all included in the VIP Icon Ticket Bundle, which costs $340.
Additionally, for $155, fans can purchase the VIP MC Ticket Bundle, which includes special seating, exclusive Jabbawockeez digital collectibles and TIMELESS content, membership in the MGM Rewards-Jabbawockeez NFT community, and a $25 food and beverage voucher redeemable at MGM Grand’s LEVEL UP lounge within 24 hours of the show. To use any certificate, guests must be at least 21 years old.

“With the launch of TIMELESS, we are giving Jabbawockeez fans a new way to experience the show,” Andrew Machado, the company’s Senior Vice President of Digital Design & Business Adjacencies, said in a statement. “NFTs usher in a new era for fans where the ticket itself is an ever-evolving experience that begins before the curtain lifts and continues long after the show ends. At MGM Resorts, we strive to create immersive experiences that wow our guests and Jabbawockeez is the perfect partner for our first NFT. They’re amazing creators who are always willing to step outside the box with us to innovate. We’re confident their highly engaged fan base will be incredibly excited to be a part of this new experience.”
