Weekend events for June 23-25

Updated June 28, 2017 - 9:11 am

Music fans will go ga-ga this weekend over the double-header of Queen and Adam Lambert at the T-Mobile Arena but in fact, we have a plethora of rock riches that will give the British boys a run for their money!

……

Ricky Martin is back at the Monte Carlo for two more weekend nights of his ongoing residency as with the Backstreet Boys at Planet Hollywood. There’s a tribute show for the Red Hot Chili Peppers vs Blink 182 at the Brooklyn Bowl. The Shins play at the Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan. Mumford & Sons are at the Hard Rock. War is at the Silverton, and the Vans Warped tour pulls into the Hard Rock Hotel. If you want to step back in time to enjoy sounds of the 80s The Buckinghams are at the Golden Nugget.

……

But there’s plenty of comedy if you’re not in the mood for music:

Jeff Dunham has Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Jose Jalapeno on a stick and his other ventriloquist dolls, Piff the Magic Dragon conjures up magic with deadpan comedy at The Flamingo. Kathleen Madigan proves it’s not just a man’s world with her funny stuff at The Mirage.

……

My choice will be less frenetic as Deana Martin acknowledges what would have been her father Dean Matin’s 100th birthday. This show at the SouthPoint also includes a reunion of the famous Gold-Diggers who co-starred with Dean when he played Vegas way back when. So, let’s take a martini like Dean used to do and toast the Vegas entertainment scene which thrives despite the 115-degree temperatures. Thank heavens for air-conditioned showrooms! Lets chill with this week’s edition of the Royal Robin Rundown:
