Travis Scott

The title of Travis Scott’s blockbuster latest album, “Astroworld,” is a nod to a now-shuttered theme park of his youth. True to form, the of-the-moment rapper’s current tour in support of said record features a roller coaster as part of the show’s outsize production values. Strap yourself in at 8 p.m. Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena. Tickets are $39.95 to $129.95; call 702-692-1600.

Rock Like Queen

Odds are, you won’t be able to nail that breath-suckingly long note from Freddie Mercury’s “Ay-Oh” singalong at the end of “Radio Ga Ga” at Live Aid.

To promote the home video release of the Oscar-nominated “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the Rock Like Queen Bus Tour will let fans unleash their inner-Freddie for a half-hour of Mercury mania. The bus will board approximately every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 5:35 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Fremont and Sixth streets. Admission is free, but registration is required at
