Beyonce, Chili Peppers, Among NYE Lineup in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Sin City is preparing to claim its place on the party town list for another year with celebrity-studded New Year's Eve bashes, exclusive concerts and a fireworks display billed as the country's largest.

Big-ticket musical acts including Beyonce, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Black Keys are expected to help lure 330,000 visitors to Las Vegas Monday.

A legion of law enforcement officers will be watching the revelers closely, as will the eager casino bosses concerned with ending 2012 with a profitable bang.

Nightclubs are touting pricey parties hosted by celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Brandy.

Hotels are dealing a full house this weekend, with occupancy approaching 100 percent.

Also on tap is an eight-minute fireworks display that will shoot from the rooftops of seven hotel-casinos.
