Updated October 28, 2022 - 11:47 am

MUSIC

Elton John

It’ll be “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” for real when Elton John brings his farewell tour to town. It’s not that the Rocket Man has run out of jet fuel. It’s just that after five decades on the road it’s time for the all-time great piano man to call it a day. Bummed? “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues.” Bid farewell at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Allegiant Stadium. Tickets start at $48; ticketmaster.com.

MUSIC

Duran Duran squared

It’s not quite the “Simpsons” joke of the Moody Blues opening for a Moody Blues tribute act, but there will be a double dose of Duran Duran this weekend. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are bringing their “Future Past” tour to town with shows at 8 p.m. Sunday and Monday in the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. Tickets start at $255; ticketmaster.com. As a prelude, “Into Future Past — Celebrating Duran Duran” is set for 8 p.m. Saturday in 24 Oxford at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets start at $32; etix.com.

MUSIC

Phantogram

“Love Me Now,” dream-pop duo Phantogram command on their latest record, “Ceremony.” It’s easy to oblige thanks to the seductive atmosphere conjured by the band’s blend of trip-hop beats, outsize hooks and digital sizzle. See Phantogram at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq. Tickets start at $28; ticketweb.com.

THEATER

‘Misery’

We’re not usually ones to promote the idea of hobbling a writer, but in this case, we’ll make an exception. Things take a dark turn when novelist Paul Sheldon is rescued from a car wreck by his “No. 1 fan” in “Misery.” See Las Vegas Little Theatre’s production of the play based on the Stephen King novel. It’s being presented at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Nov. 4 and 5 with additional 2 p.m. shows Saturday, Sunday and Nov. 6 at 3920 Schiff Drive. Tickets are $30; lvlt.org.

MUSIC

W.A.S.P.

Will the flame-shooting saw-blade codpiece make its return? One can only hope W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless dons his legendary heavy metal stage gear of yesteryear when the rockers return for their first U.S. tour in over a decade to commemorate their 40th anniversary. Go “Inside the Electric Circus” once more at 7 p.m. Friday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets start at $29.50; houseofblues.com/lasvegas.
