August 9, 2010 – Las Vegas, NV. – One of the most iconic and successful shows in Las Vegas, BITE® was launched on Friday the 13th, August 2004. BITE® is a Las Vegas show to die for as it goes beyond the boundaries of more traditional shows with a powerful combination of enigmatic and erotic topless dancers, astounding acrobatics, live singing with high-octane rock ‘n’ roll, and wickedly tempting vampires.
“BITE® is one of the best surprises of Las Vegas. Luckily, we were five years ahead of the curve for thinking vampires are hot,” commented Tim Molyneux, producer and creator of BITE®. “One of my goals when coming to Vegas was to create something that had not been done here before. I was surprised that in 100 years of Las Vegas entertainment, no one had thought of doing a vampire show. It just seemed so natural to me.”
Some critics claimed the show would not last six months; six years later they sing a different song. Molyneux made his mark as a top Vegas producer with BITE®. This creative and energetic Molyneux creation has been called genius, “must-see” and superior. Molyneux also consults on big-name concerts such as Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith and Joe Nichols
“BITE® has been, and continues to be, a great asset for the Stratosphere,” said Michael McNamee, Vice President of Marketing for Stratosphere. “This show gives people something truly unique and at an incredible value for their entertainment dollar. Everyone here at Stratosphere would like to congratulate BITE® on six successful years and we wish them many more to come.”
This season, BITE® continues to breathe life into the city of sin by celebrating six years in the Theater of the Stars showroom with what is now a staple in the lineup of “Must See” Vegas shows. The first 500 guests to attend the Anniversary show on Friday, August 13th will receive complimentary fangs. Everyone in attendance will also receive a complimentary glass of Champagne to celebrate the smashing success of Las Vegas’ #1 show of sin, sex and seduction.
The sexually charged BITE® takes its audience on the Lord Vampire’s quest for the perfect female specimen, who he plans to seduce and crown his Queen of the Night. Aiding the Lord is his coven of sultry and nimble dancers, the Erotic Angels of Rock. Taboo temptations meet classic rock ’n’ roll in this aggressive and seductive world of vampires.
