The first annual Las Vegas Metalfest has been confirmed for Labor Day weekend (August 29th, 30th, and 31st) at The Huntridge Theater. Currently, only tickets for the entire three day admission (includes souvenir event t-shirt) is available through Ticketmaster. Other ticketing options and outlets will be announced shortly.
It’s very easy to think sequined headdress showgirls and Elvis impersonators when one envisions Vegas entertainment. And nobody does that better. In truth, all of the best music entertainment passes through Sin City at some point, often debuting the biggest names in the music business. But what’s terrific about the Las Vegas music and arts scene is that the venues that house these superstars are often intimate, personal spaces where you’re able to feel a connection to the performances. Live shows of this kind are a “must do” and rarely disappoint. Here are some of the best concert halls and theaters in Las Vegas. — Marco Medrano
