This music is fire:

What you saw in that 45 second clip was the under-construction MGM-AEG arena, which would house Vegas’ proposed NHL expansion team… should prospective owner Bill Foley be granted a team, of course.

A joint venture between MGM Resorts International and AEG Live, the arena is located on the strip, projected to seat 17,500 for hockey and expected to be completed by early 2016.

According to a Las Vegas Review-Journal report from earlier this month, the NHL’s Board of Governors is believed to be voting on proposed expansion this September. But, when reached by email, deputy commissioner Bill Daly told PHT the report was “extremely premature.”

“The Board hasn’t even determined what next steps, if any, it should entertain with respect to expansion generally,” wrote Daly.
