LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas tourism officials have canceled several activities tied to the launch of a new city slogan in the wake of basketball star Kobe Bryant's death.
A 60-second spot touting the “What happens here, only happens here” campaign aired during the Grammy Awards as planned Sunday night. But other plans were postponed.
The city had intended to display the new slogan on more than two dozen hotel and casino marquees on and around the Strip. Instead, most resorts showed messages of grief.
The retired L.A. Lakers player, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others perished after their helicopter crashed Sunday morning 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
