Celebrities in L.V.: Panic! At The Disco, Maluma, ‘Game of Thrones,’ Il Volo, Lyle Lovett + Vince Gill

Be you 10 or 100. Be you a rocker or country fan. Be you a sports enthusiast or TV “Game” addict, there’s something for everybody this weekend before the Nashville country superstars take over in the next few days for The Week Vegas Goes Country and The Academy of Country Music hands out its annual awards.

If the lights go out on the Strip at various locations this weekend, don’t panic. It’s World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour for the eighth consecutive year, with non-essential lighting including rooftop signage and facade features going dark at 8:30 p.m. for 60 minutes Saturday.

The only panic is Panic! At The Disco at Mandalay Bay. Around the globe, millions of people, businesses and landmarks will set aside the hour to switch off lights for climate-change action. At The Venetian and The Palazzo, an official Earth Hour DJ leads a countdown to start Earth Hour when the two hotels turn off their exterior lights to mark global green.

The boys of summer are here this first week of spring with The World Series champion Chicago Cubs playing The Cincinnati Reds to remind us that we have to stretch in the bottom of the 7th. Summer spells pool parties, and Sisqo kicks off the lineup at Go Pool at Flamingo. Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay has DJ Tommy Trash on Saturday and Tyga on Sunday.

Music of yesteryear is represented by The Lettermen, Taylor Dane and Pat Benatar, while country kicks off with Lyle Lovett and Vince Gill. We’re a week away from Florida Georgia Line and Jake Owen starring in the first ACM Party for a Cause at Mandalay Bay and Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley returning as ACM Awards hosts, this year at T-Mobile Arena on CBS.

Nice to note that my fellow Brit, Sir Rod Stewart, is adding a summer leg of concerts to his Las Vegas residency, and tickets go on sale today for his nine new shows on select dates from Aug. 15 through Sept. 3 at The Colosseum.

This weekend isn’t the quiet before the storm because it includes a live concert from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” The Seven Kingdoms come to life at MGM Grand with state-of-the-art technology, full orchestra and choir for a visual and music experience like no other.

Plus Monster Jam trucks rev and roar at Sam Boyd Stadium for more than 57,000 fans from 15 countries at the three-day World Finals. Vegas Indoor Skydiving continues its 35th anniversary with the second-annual Tunnel Jam flight competition pitting our city’s most talented body-flyers for the title of Tunnel Jam Champ.
