MGM Resort and Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas are offering Calvin Harris £7 million to extend his residency as they fear he will be poached by another venue
Calvin Harris is at the centre of a Las Vegas bidding war.
The Scottish DJ has been offered £7 million by the MGM Resort and Hakkasan nightclub to extend his two-year residency, despite only being midway through his current contract, as they fear he will be offered more money by another venue.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Calvin has been a real hit at Hakkasan. His nights are complete sell-outs and there is so much demand we could book him out twice over and still have a waiting list. We are a year into the deal and we want to make sure that we don't lose him.
"He has said he is happy here, so we are keen to get an extension deal done.
"Other venues have been trying to tap him up to get him on board there, but we are hopeful to secure a deal."
Partygoers splash out £70 a ticket for Calvin's nights and there is a waiting list for tables - which cost a staggering £5,000 each - for his popular Friday night gigs and the venue are keen to reflect his popularity with a huge pay offer.
The source added: "We are looking at around £7 million on the table, and it is worth every penny in our eyes."
