Santana Is About To Get Really Intimate With Us Again

Where: 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119
December 3, 2014 at 5:43 PM | by | Comments (0)

Icon and musical legend Carlos Santana will return to Las Vegas next month to continue his residency at the House of Blues inside Mandalay Bay. Santana has performed his greatest hits at HOB since 2012, but if you haven't seen it yet, what should you expect?

During the two-hour production, Santana (obviously) plays his greatest hits in an intimate setting (hence, the "Intimate Evening with Santana" name). Each show is unique and different from the others. One cool aspect (besides the man candy in his band) is that Santana plays a variety of songs, not just his own. One day he will add Michael Jackson, the next he will throw in Christmas music or a random song from your childhood like the theme from The Addams Family. And, it sounds damn good! He pretty much makes anything sound sexy.

The One Where We Were Reminded Of Some Vegas Faves

November 25, 2014 at 7:17 PM | by | Comments (0)

Over the weekend, headliner Jeff Civillico from the Imperial Linq Quad Palace (as he likes to put it) hosted a charity fundraiser for his Win-Win Entertainment organization. The group hooks up entertainers with good causes such as performing shows in children’s hospitals.

Win-Win’s Headliner Bash featured an array of Vegas stars and reminded us of just why we loved some of them. One of the standout performances was from Human Nature (pictured above), the Aussie Motown group who perform at Venetian. When it comes to amazing vocals, these guys are some of the best in Vegas. Their pitch-perfect harmonies and a capella skills are truly impressive. After performing a Motown standard, the group moved to Christmas music from their “Christmas Album” and reminded guests of their upcoming holiday themed shows. If you hadn't heard, their Christmas, Motown and More show runs December 12-24.

November 18, 2014 at 9:01 PM | by | Comments (2)

Some will circle them. Others will cross them out. The 2015 dates for Electric Daisy Carnival have been announced with the oontz fest taking over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway once again June 19-21.

Next year will mark the fifth anniversary (in Vegas) for the music festival which brings hundreds of thousands together in the name of EDM. Tickets will go on sale December 1 at noon PT. Three-day general admission will be priced at $329 while VIP passes will begin at $699. As in prior years, no single day tickets will be sold, but you will be able to make the cost a bit easier to handle thanks to a layaway option. And, you might want to seriously consider it as pricing is significantly higher than last year which saw general admission at $249 and VIP access at $499.

The Roots Will Rock Brooklyn Bowl Into 2015

Where: 3545 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
November 18, 2014 at 3:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

If you missed The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl before, you have no excuse this time. You’ve been warned. They put on a heck of a show and though it’s hard to explain if you haven’t experienced it, they just feel like Brooklyn Bowl. They feel like they should be on that stage. Jimmy Fallon should move his show to Vegas so they can be our house band at the same time.

You’ll have your shot to see what we mean over New Year’s Eve at The Roots Legendary New Year’s Eve Ball. Doors open and 8 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 9 p.m. If past shows are any indication, they should be good for a decently long performance.

Observations On The KISS Residency At Hard Rock

Where: 4455 Paradise Rd. [map], 89169
November 10, 2014 at 4:19 PM | by | Comments (2)

VegasChatter reader @paperposter recently checked out the newly launched KISS residency at The Joint at Hard Rock and shared his thoughts with us. His only real issue with the show is that it's only about 90 minutes. With the massive catalog KISS has, the show’s length leaves fans wanting more.

He noted Def Leppard and Gun ‘N Roses, who had similar residency stints at The Joint, played for closer to double the time of the long-tongued ones. On the plus side, KISS did bring the expected pyrotechnics and special effects they are known for.

As Downtown Vegas gears up for a weekend of music, art and gourmet food, a whole other group of people are making it happen behind the scenes.
