Flaming Lips New Year’s Eve Freakout! – Oklahoma City
Over the years, The Flaming Lips have thrown some of the most incredible musical New Years Eve parties the world has ever seen. On top of a massive spectacle featuring balloons, confetti and costumed characters, the band has long been known to perform Pink Floyd's  “The Dark Side of the Moon” in its entirety at their year-closing shows. This is one party no music fan is going to want to miss!
Phish at Madison Square Garden – New York City
Take it to one of the most legendary venues in the world to spend the final hours of 2011 with one of the greatest jam bands on the planet! Head into the city well ahead of time to take in the festive holiday sights & sounds, and be a part of music history as the band follows up their three-night run at New York’s Madison Square Garden to close out 2010 with an extended four-night celebration, Dec. 28-31. Ticket prices will also include a free mp3 download of the respective evening’s entire show that can be redeemed at shortly after the band steps off stage.

Party on The Las Vegas Strip
If there's one thing Las Vegas knows how to do, it's party with decadence. New Year's 2012 plans include a spectacular fireworks show by Fireworks by Grucci of New York, fired from the roofs of the MGM Grand, Aria, Planet Hollywood, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island (TI), The Venetian and the Stratosphere. For further entertainment, head to Tribute Palooza 4 on Fremont St, featuring a ton of 80s and 90s cover bands for your reminiscent rocking pleasure!
Times Square – New York City
Everyone should experience the high-energy crowds and utterly insane excitement of spending New Years Eve in Times Square at least once in their lives! Grabbing all access tickets to the area (they're not cheap!) means you'll have great positioning to watch the ball drop among the tens of thousands of people when the clock strikes 12, while you'll have complete admission to the local clubs and restaurants to usher in the new year in style.
Los Angeles New Years Eve Club Crawl
The Ultimate New Year’s Eve experience in SoCal offers VIPs the chance to hit the Hollywood Boulevard of Fame & step into the biggest & best clubs Hollywood has to offer! With an all-access pass, attendees will have unfettered VIP entrance at the following clubs: Highland, Rolling Stone, Egyptian Theater Courtyard & The Playhouse.
