On the fence about whether to keep on believin’? Well, you’re in luck, as these Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will most certainly weigh in on the matter at 8 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Wednesdays through Oct. 26 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets start at $69; call 866-320-9763.
Heartache seldom sounds as alluring as it does on “Hold On,” the latest single from this Chicago R&B/electro-pop duo, whose buoyant breakup anthem glides by on Via Rosa’s smooth yet self-assured vocals and producer Na’el Shehade’s percolating beats. Dance the pain away at 9 p.m. Friday at The Bunkhouse Saloon. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door; call 702-982-1764.
These veteran British hard rockers put out one of the best concert records of the ’70s in double album “Perfect Strangers,” led by the six-string acrobatics of former guitarist Michael Schenker.

In the mid-’90s, these two arena-fillers had the alt-rock airwaves in a stranglehold, Live with its earnest yet aspirational songbook, Bush with its hook-heavy grunge lite.

Once the most puerile and proudly debauched act of the early aughts pop-punk boom, Sum 41 has since grown up, gotten sober — some of them, at least — and gone from bad boys to good examples of the power of perseverance. See them at 6 p.m. Wedensday at the House of Blues. Tickets are $33.50 to $60.50; call 702-632-7600.
