April 8, 2016 - 7:00 am
A Thousand Horses
Do you feel like the circus left town and you’re just looking at a big flat spot where the tent used to be? Country-rockers A Thousand Horses will cure your withdrawals from last weekend’s Academy of Country Music blowout at 8 p.m. Saturday inside The Railhead at Boulder Station. Tickets are $17-$29.50; call 800-745-3000.
‘Girls Night: The Musical’
Girls can have a lot of nights out in Las Vegas; the Chippendales, Thunder and ‘Menopause The Musical’ always await their escape. But there’s a hurry-up for “Girls Night: The Musical,” because this touring jukebox-musical ode to female bonding is here for only three nights at the South Point, at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday at South Point. Tickets are $20-$30; call 702-797-8055.
It’s just not practical for 4,000 people to separately ride up and down the Strip with Jerry Seinfeld. So the king of comedy will take a break from “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and perform to a stationary audience at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets are $82.50-$165; call 888-929-7849.
Don Rickles is edging up to his 90th birthday in May, and his return to The Orleans this weekend sustains an amazing Las Vegas career that started in 1959. Not bad for a comedian not generally known as “a nice guy.” See him at 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $76.25-$108.95; call 702-365-7075.
Comedy Central viewers know Daniel Tosh more for the video horrors of “Tosh.0,” while Mirage patrons get plenty of chances to see his stand-up. The two converge when his next stand-up special, “Daniel Tosh: People Pleaser,” debuts April 17. But Las Vegas still gets an early look when Tosh revisits The Mirage at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $70.04-$106.04; call 702-792-7777.
