SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO BRINGS HIS STAY HUNGRY TOUR TO THE SHOW AT AGUA CALIENTE CASINO RESORT SPA ON AUGUST 16, 2019

TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, AT 10 A.M

Rancho Mirage, Calif. (February 20, 2019) – One of the biggest names in entertainment today, comedian, best-selling author and film actor Sebastian Maniscalco returns to The Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa with his Stay Hungry Tour on Friday, August 16, 2019, at 8 p.m. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Feb. 22 at 10:00 am local time.

Last month Maniscalco had “the biggest week of his career” to-date according the Entertainment Weekly. That week included performing four shows at “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden, and releasing his new Netflix Original special Stay Hungry streaming now.

Vulture recently said of the multi-hyphenate entertainer’s journey to success, “Maniscalco, without a breakout TV or film role, built a tremendous fan base the old-fashioned way: one joke at a time, one audience at the time.” Although he may not have started his career in film, Maniscalco’s loyal fans will continue to see more acting roles from him in 2019 with a performance opposite Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorcese’s The Irishman.

Over the weekend Maniscalco attended the Writer’s Guild Awards as a presenter and in support of his role in the Golden Globe-winning film Green Book, which was nominated for Best Original Screenplay. This Sunday he will attend the 91st Annual Academy Awards where the film is nominated for multiple Oscars including Best Picture. Dubbed “comedy’s new superstar” in a recent profile by NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Maniscalco made Forbes’ list of “The World’s Highest Paid Comedians” for the second consecutive year and was a nominee for Best Comedy Tour at the 30th annual Pollstar Awards last week.

Distinguished by The New York Times as having his “own kind of panache,” Maniscalco’s live performances have become critically-acclaimed events “embraced with thundering applause and tear-inducing laughter,” according to a recent Billboard review which described his sold-out Greek Theatre performance as “devastatingly full-force comedy.” With a string of record-breaking sold-out comedy appearances, a best-selling memoir Stay Hungry and a role in the award-winning Green Book, 2018 was a milestone year that culminated in Maniscalco receiving Billboard’s inaugural Comedian of the Year award. Less than two months into 2019, the year is already shaping up to be another landmark one for Mansicalco with his continuing Stay Hungry Tour, sold out Madison Square Garden shows, new Netflix special and role in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman this fall.

To see a comedic star of this stature in the intimate surrounds of The Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa is a not-to-be-missed opportunity, so grab your tickets or – stay hungry!

Glen Ivy Hot Springs Reopens with New Leadership, Upgraded Facilities and Record Sales

Published

on

GOCO Hospitality, the dedicated global wellness consulting, development, and management company, continues the revitalization of Glen Ivy Hot Springs to create the ultimate West Coast wellness destination. Reopening late January 2022 following a $2.5 million property-wide enhancement project, Glen Ivy Hot Springs welcomed a new General Manager, Hervé Blondel, whose most recent role was General Manager at the internationally acclaimed Rancho La Puerta, fitness resort and spa in Mexico, to further enhance the guest experience.

“Strong leadership is the key to Glen Ivy Hot Springs’ continued growth and development,” commented Ingo Schweder, CEO of GOCO Hospitality and Glen Ivy Hot Springs. “Hervé’s 30 years of experience at top wellness destinations complements GOCO’s expert leadership team of multidisciplinary professionals.”

Hervé Blondel joins GOCO Hospitality’s team of seasoned, global wellness experts with decades of experience at the most exclusive resorts worldwide. Prior to founding GOCO Hospitality, Ingo Schweder was co-owner and head of development at award-winning destination wellness resort, Ananda in the Himalayas. GOCO Hospitality also developed and managed the highly regarded and award-winning SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain. Before joining GOCO in 2014, Group Director, Clive McNish, was wellness director and general manager at world class holistic wellness destination Kamalaya Koh Samui in Thailand. GOCO’s Group Director of Design and Development, Josephine Leung, oversaw the $380 million wellness community Sangha by Octave Living in China. Currently working on more than 400 projects in 45 countries, GOCO offers the leading go-to wellness hospitality specialist group, working with sovereign funds, individual developers, and leading architects around the globe.

“The company has not only seen exponential growth during the pandemic, but also new segments and investors enter the wellness arena as health becomes the new luxury,” added Schweder.

Glen Ivy Hot Springs is no exception to post-pandemic growth. Southern California’s iconic and leading wellness destination saw membership and gift card sales rise by 50% from 2019 to 2021. The increase is attributed to the consumers’ commitment to outdoor wellness and the benefits of thermal mineral water as an increasing part of daily routines, as well as an interest in sharing the experience with others through the pandemic.

The Glen Ivy Hot Springs $2.5 million renovations included the re-engineering of eleven historic mineral springs, as well as upgrades and enhancements of pool decks and pool facilities, in the guest reception area, treatment facilities, the Bath House, the Ivy Kitchen and gardens, which are a part of the 18-acre Glen Ivy organic farm.
