This week’s 5 best bets for concerts in Las Vegas


Scan a few pages of Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen’s auto-barf-ography, “Ministry: The Lost Gospels,” and you’ll wonder how the debauched-to-the-bone industrial rock forebear is still among the living. Crank the band’s feral new record, “AmeriKKKant,” and it’ll be you who’s feeling lucky to be alive. See Ministry at 7 p.m. Saturday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door; call 702-862-2695.

Kid Rock

Honestly, it would have made sense had Kid Rock decided to run for office in his home state of Michigan: He’s the embodiment of a true-blooded populist, catering to his constituency like a baby-smooching candidate on the stump, giving his supporters what they want, be it rap-rock in the ’90s or country-leaning rock from the ’00s on. Hey, it’ll probably feel like a campaign rally when Kid Rock hits town at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Mandalay Bay Events Center. Tickets are $79.50, $99.50 and $149.50; call 702-632-7777.

Schenker Fest

What distinguishes Michael Schenker Fest from your average, ho-hum Michael Schenker show? Trick question! The “Blonde Bomber” doesn’t do ho-hum, chief. Regardless, Schenker’s latest tour is a special one, as the heavy metal guitar great will be joined by three Michael Schenker Group vocalists (Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, Robin McAuley). Call a “Doctor Doctor” to reattach your rocked-off face at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets start at $37; call 702-632-7600.

Lil Xan

As lively on the mic as a stoned eggplant, 21-year-old Lil Xan is the latest mumble rap Soundcloud sensation who sounds like a muscle relaxer incarnate. See him at 7 p.m. Friday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq. Tickets are $23 in advance, $25 at the door; call 702-862-2695.

Blue Oyster Cult

The band for whom cries of “more cowbell!” have never, ever applied, Blue Oyster Cult continues to set “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll” 50 years in. See them at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Access Showroom at Aliante Casino. Tickets start at $35; call 702-692-7777.

Vegas Golden Knights Christmas Display
In the Las Vegas Valley, the chances of getting a white Christmas are slim. But this year, you can have a “Knight” Christmas. A Henderson resident has a Christmas lights display that is synchronized to the entrance music for the Golden Knights. GG Misa’s Knights light show is played every 30 minutes from 5 to 10 nightly. His light show consists of two songs: Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and the entrance music, “Le Castle Vania,” from the movie “John Wick.” The display is located at 730 Bollons Island St. (Richard Brian/Las Vegas Reivew-Journal)
