Kesha, Garth Brooks on this week’s list of things to do in Las Vegas

SPORTS

Raiders vs. Chiefs

One of the most bitter rivalries in football will be renewed when the Kansas City Chiefs, along with tens of thousands of their fans, descend on Allegiant Stadium. The Chiefs are 5-0 in the series since the Raiders’ buses took a victory lap around Arrowhead Stadium on Oct. 11, 2020. The game will be without the NFL’s favorite sideshow, though, as Taylor Swift is set to close out the 2023 leg of her tour that day in São Paulo, Brazil. The matchup is scheduled for 1:25 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available on resale sites.
