Top Rock Bands Playing at Las Vegas For a Perfect Music & Poker Holiday

Between the poker tables, Nevada is the ideal spot to listen to live rock music. You may as well skip the brick-and-mortar casino and play online poker in Nevada. We’ve broken down what’s on and who’s performing when you’re here. Who knows what may happen – You might be able to obtain discounted tickets to the top rock bands’ forthcoming performances—the perfect poker holiday.

The Colosseum at Caesars Palace – Aug 28-29, Sept 2-5, 2021

I used to be a passive Smith’s fan, but a crackerjack 75-minute set on an August night in ’86 did it for me. Morrissey never fails to surprise with his intensity and very intimate connection to the audience, something many attribute to his days as frontman for The Smiths.

This is your chance to hear Morrissey in Las Vegas if you missed him when he was the frontman for the Smiths. Morrissey is about to take the stage with his deep baritone tones. Tickets go for US $85 – $505.

House of Blues at Mandalay – Aug 25-29, Sept 1-4, Oct 3-5,26-31, Nov 3-14, Dec 1-12

Santana’s brilliant compositions are renowned for transporting listeners to new heights of enjoyment, especially if you appreciate Latin-Jazz-Blues classic rock style. You’ll find yourself singing along and leaping to deep guitar riffs in a lot of songs.

Snag yourself tickets to An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live Tour for US $99.50 – US $180.00. Discount tickets are available.

Chicago: The Band
The Venetian – September 15,17,18

If you have had the opportunity to attend one of the finest Las Vegas shows in recent years, then get to listen to hits like Hard Habit to Break and Does Anybody Really Know in-between your poker games. We’re sure Chicago wishes you were here to watch them perform live.

Billy Idol
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas – October 16, 17, 22, 23

Tickets go for US $39 – $504.

Rolling Stones
Allegiant Stadium – Nov 6

The Rolling Stones – Live in Concert is an experience not to be missed. Diverging from the pop-rock of the early 60s, the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World is back in 2021. The No Filter Tour is in the wake of Charlie Watts’ death and is sure to make you swing and swagger.

Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood – December 29 & 31

Las Vegas might be a Psycho Circus, but a bit of Rock and Roll might be a nice getaway from the intense poker tables. As you enjoy your online poker in Nevada, you can listen to this high-powered band, including a show on New Year’s Eve.
