Pink leads this week’s best bets in Las Vegas

The pop star takes over T-Mobile Arena on Friday

MUSIC

Pink

“I live my life like a bullet in a gun,” Pink contends on her latest single, “Hustle,” shooting from the hip as always on the funky, potty-mouthed, electro-pop kiss-off. The song is the second taste of her forthcoming new album, “Hard 2B Human,” the singer’s eighth, due out April 26. Help pass the time till then by seeing Pink at 8 p.m. Friday at T-Mobile Arena. Tickets are $47.45 to $227.50; call 702-692-1600.

MOVIES

‘Ben-Hur’

There are movies you can watch on your TV or even your phone without missing much. Then there’s “Ben-Hur.” The religious epic about a wealthy prince (Charlton Heston) cast into slavery won a record 11 Academy Awards — a feat that’s only been matched by “Titanic” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” In a rare return to the big screen to celebrate its 60th anniversary, it’s being shown in its original super-widescreen Ultra 65 format. See “Ben-Hur” on Sunday and Wednesday at Colonnade, Orleans, Red Rock, Sam’s Town, Santa Fe, South Point and Village Square.
