There are numerous draws to Las Vegas that fit any interest. It’s Vegas, home of unbeatable food, drink, amazing hotels, casinos… we could go on.

We’re talking icons, on-the-rise stars, and brilliant experiences that all live up to Vegas’ epic reputation. So let’s take a look at who you need to see live and how to get your tickets so you can enjoy live to the fullest.

Silk Sonic

In 2021, Silk Sonic arrived to shake things up in the music world. With their own take of funk, soul, and R&B in hand, the duo comprised of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars were unstoppable last year. Now, fans from all over can see them work their magic live during their ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic’ residency this summer. Silk Sonic extended their May 2022 run of shows to provide those who previously missed out (or those seeking a second dose) with nine more opportunities to see them perform. It’s expected that Silk Sonic will bring the funk, soul, and spirit out to those who watch them at Las Vegas’ Dolby Live at Park MGM. It’s also expected that you will have a blast as you watch the duo work their magic.

There are many things you can find in Las Vegas, and thanks to John Legend, one of them is love. The Grammy-winning singer kicked off his ‘Love In Las Vegas’ residency at the end of April, and attendees were invited to enjoy themselves as much as possible throughout the night. Heck, they were even greeted with a sign that read “Please be advised that we encourage guests to stand up during the performance.” Over a two-hour show at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, Legend dazzles fans with performances of songs from his seven-album catalog for a night where you not only feel the love through the music, but through the atmosphere as well.

There is time for work and there is time for play, but for Katy Perry, she aims to do both with her ‘Katy Perry: Play’ residency. Over her two-decade-long career, Katy has continuously given us a wide array of colors and vibrancy through her music, visuals, and style. That is set to continue with her Play residency which continues with performances in July, August, and October at Resorts World Theatre that are billed as a “sparkling new way to play in the Entertainment Capital of The World.” For the next few months, it’s Katy’s world and she’s enjoying it. Luckily for us, she’s inviting us in to watch it all go down.

Usher has given classic on top of classic throughout his near-30-year career, but now, he has his eyes set on giving the world a classic residency. That attempt comes to life with his ‘Usher: The Vegas Residency’ string of shows. Following performances from February to this month, Usher will continue putting on a show through October. His sets were custom designed for the Dolby Live stage while his performances will incorporate audience interaction throughout Park MGM’s 5,200-seat theater. Some may argue that he’s the King of R&B, but from now until October, Usher has his eyes set on being the King of Vegas.

Since the early 2000s, the Jabbawockeez hip-hop dance crew has dazzled the world with their impressive moves and top-notch choreography.

Thankfully, with their ongoing Las Vegas residency, the Jabbawockeez are looking to bring their fans up close and personal. Billed as a “dynamic mix of awe-inspiring choreography, pulse-pounding music, and stunning special effects,” Jabbawockeez will invite fans into a seat that places them closer than ever to watch the group work their magic at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.
