Playboy and eight Playmates will ring in the New Year with a live concert in front of 4,000 partygoers at the NYE 2012: Official Playboy New Year's Eve Celebration at the historic Hilton Chicago.

The event brings Eva Simons direct from Amsterdam, with her #1 Club Song of 2011, "Take Over Control." Baby Bash will also be on hand to perform his hits "Suga Suga," "Cyclone," and new single "Vegas Nights." The Playboy New Year's Eve party also features a special live performance from up-and-coming rapper and son of Tom Hanks, Chet Haze.

New Year's Eve party tickets include a four-hour premium open bar from sponsors Dragon Bleu Vodka and Coors Light, a chef's selection of hors d'oeuvres and buffet, midnight champagne toast, and video countdown with confetti explosion. Or, guests can step inside the exclusive Playboy VIP Lounge, where nightlife and casino gaming come together with meet and greet opportunities with the eight Playboy Playmates, and an extra hour of super premium open bar.

B96 Chicago's DJ Flipside from "Flipside at 5" and B96 Mixmaster Mixin Marc will play the top dance, house, and hip hop tracks, while B96's Stylz and Roman countdown the clock to the midnight celebration at Hilton Chicago.

"We are proud to be the only true concert experience inside an upscale hotel environment," says Christian Banach, owner of the event's production company Global Adrenaline. "This marks our sixth year at Hilton Chicago and the Playboy New Year's Eve party continues to be Chicago's largest and best event year after year."
