WEEKEND SHOWS July 8, 2022

Last Minute Weekend Shows

Black Keys

               The last time they launched a tour in town, the Black Keys would have ripped the roof off the place had there been one: The blues-rock badasses began their roadwork for previous album “Let’s Rock” with a feisty headlining slot at Life is Beautiful 2019. Back with a new record, the hip-swiveling, hard-charging “Dropout Boogie,” the Black Keys are once again starting their first trek in support of the album right here in Vegas, at 7 p.m. Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden. Tickets start at $39.50; axs.com

Gary Allan

               Country music singer Gary Allan is right where he needs to be, hitting town this weekend as he continues his “Ruthless” tour. Since the release of his debut record in 1996, the 54-year-old Allan has sold over 8 million albums and 10 million tracks and charted five No. 1 hits. See him at 8 p.m. Saturday at the M Resort. Tickets start at $23; ticketmaster.com.

Chris Tucker

               Enjoy a night of laughter as funnyman Chris Tucker, star of the “Rush Hour” series, “Friday” and many other memorable roles, returns to the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas this weekend after a two-year hiatus. Tucker brings his hilarious impersonations and inside knowledge of Hollywood to the stand-up stage at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets start at $65; ticketmaster.com
