Rihanna at Mandalay Bay Events Center


Rihanna is bringing her ANTI world tour to Las Vegas with two big shows at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Friday and Saturday night. With an arsenal of chart-topping hits and a hot new album, you can expect Rihanna to deliver a spectacular live experience that is sure to put the “sin” in Sin City. Plus, you never know who might take the stage with her as EDM superstar and frequent collaborator, Calvin Harris, is also in town this weekend. Perhaps the two will take the stage together to perform their latest single? You’ll have to be there to find out, but hurry, these are some of the hottest tickets in Vegas right now.

Billy Joel at T-Mobile Arena


With over 150 million albums sold to date, music legends don’t come any bigger than Billy Joel. The “Piano Man” will be performing all of his biggest hits on Saturday night at the new T-Mobile Arena and this promises to be a Sin City show that will be talked about for some time. It’s not too often you can say you saw musical royalty perform live in concert, and who knows the next time Billy Joel will be back, so don’t miss your chance this weekend. Who knows, perhaps Elton John will make a surprise appearance for a little dueling pianos showdown.

Intrigue Nightclub Grand Opening Weekend


Steve Wynn’s properties have some of the biggest nightclub in Las Vegas with XS and Encore Beach Club, but most people don’t realize those are actually located in his Encore hotel, which is adjacent to his namesake hotel. After shuttering the longstanding Tryst nightclub earlier this year, Wynn is unveiling Intrigue this weekend and you can be assured that he’ll be pulling out all the stops. While Intrigue doesn’t boast the big EDM names that dominate The Strip, it is loaded with all the VIP amenities you’ve come to expect from Steve Wynn, plus a beautiful setting that puts the emphasis back on the party as opposed to the DJ. Discover the next hot spot on The Strip before everyone else starting with the epic grand-opening bash on Friday night.
