Updated February 4, 2023 - 7:35 am

MUSIC

Future

His voice is often blurred around the edges via Auto-Tune, but Future’s message is crystal clear: He has way, way more cooler stuff than you. Among said items: a $2 million jet, a Rolex watch that cost the same as a Corvette, a pair of $9,000 shoes. The Atlanta rapper chronicles said bounty on the very first tune of his latest chart-topping album, “I Never Liked You.” Find out in great detail how much better his life is than yours at 8 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Thomas & Center. Tickets start at $55; unlvtickets.com.

THEATER

Paranormal Cirque

There’s a new Cirque in town.

Decatur Blvd. See it there Thursday through Feb. 13 before it moves to Craig Ranch Regional Park in North Las Vegas from Feb. 16 to 20. Tickets start at $20; paranormalcirque.com.

COMEDY

Nick Swardson

In comedy, you’ve got to be pretty smart to be successfully dumb. Yeah, Nick Swardson perpetually sounds like a blitzed surfer dude, but his often puerile, party-centric stand-up is sophisticated in its stupidity. See him at 10 p.m. Saturday at the Mirage Theatre. Tickets start at $29.99; ticketmaster.com.
