Pop/rap artist Iggy Azalea performs during the grand opening of "The Block," a new gaming and entertainment venue at Harrah's Philadelphia, on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016.

Pop/rap sensation Iggy Azalea helped open the brand new gaming and entertainment venue, “The Block,” this past weekend with a show at Harrah’s Philadelphia in Chester.

Clad head-to-toe in a royal blue velvet jumpsuit, the “Work” and “Fancy” chart-topper spent a good 40 minutes beforehand posing with fans before a step-and-repeat to appease the masses.

Offering live music and concerts year-round, The Block at Harrah’s features a party pit with live table-game action, including Blackjack and Roulette, and a new, 1,550-sq. ft. bar and plush lounge. 

Other notable names who showed Saturday night were Jax Taylor of the Bravo reality show Vanderpump Rules, and DJ Paola Shea of CBS’ Big Brother spun music on the ones and twos.
