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.

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.

This New Year's Eve, thirty bucks is all it takes to jam out to Van Halen, Queen, Duran Duran, Aerosmith, and more on Fremont Street. Or, rather the music of all those groups as rock classics will delivered all night long by tribute bands.

Hard Rock is going the little bit rock 'n' roll, little bit country route for its residencies moving forward. After successfully hosting multi-week engagements by Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Motley Crue and KISS (that one's still underway), the off Strip resort has announced its next resident headliners: Rascal Flatts.

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.

Today is the official start of Life Is Beautiful 2014.
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. We attended last year and loved it, but wanted to see what was new this time around. For that, we had a chat with Craig Nyman, Head of Music and Live Performances for Life Is Beautiful (LIB).

Come Halloween, it may be unclear if folks are dressing up in costume or just supporting their favorite jam band as Phish begins a sold-out, three-night run at MGM Grand Garden Arena October 31-November 2. It’s been a decade since the band performed in Vegas as well as a five-year spell between their most recent albums, but now you’ll have multiple ways to catch their upcoming performances.

Sabriel (pronounced shaw-bree-el) first popped up on our radar during the 2013 Life Is Beautiful fest, playing a semi-private show on the roof of Commonwealth. In an event loaded with top talent, her performance was this writer's favorite set. In an email exchange, I was able to ask her a few questions:

Less than seven months from the US arrival of Rock in Rio, its City of Rock at the MGM Resorts Festival Grounds (a.k.a., that currently still desert lot at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara) has begun to arrive.
The popular mega-concert event will come to America for the first time next year, holding two weekends of events in Las Vegas May 8-9 and 15-16. Six stages will host a myriad of big names from across the world of pop and rock, including No Doubt, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, the Deftones, Metallica and John Legend. Some 85,000 are expected to be in attendance each day.

Snoop at TAO, Tony and Gaga at Cosmo and Adam at Mandalay. New Year's Eve in Vegas will, once again, require a Magic 8 ball when it comes to deciding whether you should grab tickets for a specific event now, or wait to see what else is in store.
This afternoon it was announced that Maroon 5 will ring in 2015 with not one, but two concerts at Mandalay Bay on Tuesday, December 30 and Wednesday, December 31. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, October 11 at 10 a.m. PT and range from $99.50 to $224.50 (tax and fees, of course, not included.) M Life members will be able to snatch up their tickets before anyone else with a pre-sale running Wednesday, October 8 at 10 a.m. til Friday, October 10 at 10 p.m.

Is it a Bad Romance or the perfect New Year’s Eve pairing? Lady Gaga will share the stage with Tony Bennett at Cosmopolitan's Chelsea venue. It’s not the first time the duo has paired up, but it still seems a little odd, to this writer at least. Perhaps it’s “just the right amount of wrong.”
This announcement is hot on the heels of the release of the duo's new album, Cheek to Cheek. Tony might want to be careful about getting cheek-to-cheek with Mother Monster as her costumes often have sharp spikes. Wonder what Lady Gaga will be sporting on NYE: classy or campy?

Still just a dirt lot, the site of the inaugural US presentation of Rock in Rio may require some imagination when it comes to the reality of the rendering above, but now we know who to picture ourselves rockin' out to come May 2015.
At 3 p.m. PT, Rock in Rio reps announced their first official acts for the mega-concert fest that will span two weekends next year, May 8-9 and 15-16. Those artists are Metallica, Linkin Park, John Legend, No Doubt, Deftones, and Taylor Swift. More performers are still to be announced.
