Live Entertainment Venues in Las Vegas, NV
Call this place your rocking headquarters. Gwen Stefani christened the stage and it’s been jamming ever since. The Pearl at the Palms gets you close to the action in its theater that seats 1,100 to 2,500. No seat on any of the three levels will have you farther from the stage than 120 feet. Past concerts have included New Kids on the Block, Conan O’Brien and Thirty Seconds to Mars on New Year’s Eve. Afterward you spill out onto the casino floor as you exit the Pearl.
When the Hard Rock Hotel went through its renovations, The Joint relocated to new space that doubled its capacity. The former 1,500-seat venue closed in February 2009 with a concert by Motley Crue only to reopen with hometown favorite The Killers taking the stage and 4,000 seats to boot. Carlos Santana used to call the venue home, and now Tiesto has a residency in the space. Acts that come through here range from The Moody Blues, Incubus, Duran Duran, 311, Korn and Disturbed.
The House of Blues opened in 1999 at Mandalay Bay and dubs itself a place “where music and food feed the soul.” The 1,800-capacity venue features an open-air balcony that overlooks the stage and more than 300 pieces of original folk art adorning the walls. A mural with 50,000 bottle caps greets you as you walk in. A chandelier from the ballroom of the old MGM hangs over the theater. Ice Cube and My Chemical Romance have played the venue. You can also find a restaurant and one of the best brunches in Vegas here.
While the Orleans Arena hosts its share of basketball tournaments and the Wranglers ice hockey games, it also houses some of the larger concerts that roll through town. Carrie Underwood played several shows there as well as Daughtry and the Charlie Daniels Band. The smaller Orleans Showroom sees the likes of comedians such as Tom Arnold, Don Rickles and Steven Wright and musicians like Richard Marx, Engelbert Humperdinc and The Temptations. Many of the larger indoor music festivals also call the Orleans home.
Book & Stage is an inspired sports book and lounge. It's a great place to catch and bet on live sporting events from around the world. By night, the space becomes true to its name — the stage above the bar comes alive with popular musicians playing intimate shows adding to the excitement of the book. Here you can find smaller acts playing on many nights. And no matter what time of day it is, Book & Stage is always serving a diverse mix of craft-made bottled beer and simple, yet classic cocktails.
