11Great Things Not to Be Missed

Where Las Vegas - - HOT DATES -

JIMMY BUF­FET & THE CORAL REEFER BAND > APRIL 1

Las Ve­gas will be wast­ing away again in mar­gar­i­taville. Buf­fett and his Coral Reefer Band are known for their laid­back beach style with songs such as “Mar­gar­i­taville” and “Come Mon­day.” His style, which he calls “gulf and western,” took shape when he moved to Key West in 1971. MGM Grand Gar­den Arena, 1.844.379.0370

ROBERT IRVINE > APRIL 6

“Din­ner: Impossible!” con­verts into “Robert Ir vine Live” on the stage at the Trop­i­cana The­ater. Watch the chef bring an in­ter­ac­tive show (that means you might be on stage) while go­ing be­hind the scenes of his Food Net­work se­ries. Trop­i­cana The­ater at Trop­i­cana, 1. 800.829.9034

A PER­FECT CIR­CLE > APRIL 6-8

This su­per­group doesn‘ t tour of­ten, last ap­pear­ing in Las Ve­gas in 2011, but three nights of shows en­sures that fans will hear “Pas­sive,” “The Hol­low” and “Judith.” And that may mean that new mu­sic is on the way from Tool front­man May­nard Keenan and gui­tarist Billy How­erdel. Pearl at the Palms, 702.944.3200

GREEN DAY > APRIL 7

It’s kind of hard to believe that a punk band out of Berke­ley blew up into a mega- group sell­ing out sta­di­um­sized venues and cre­at­ing Broad­way block­buster shows, but lead vo­cal­ist and gui­tarist Bil­lie Joe Arm­strong and bassist Mike Dirnt stuck with it af­ter more than 20 years to­gether. “Boule­vard of Bro­ken Dreams,” “Wake Me Up When Septem­ber Ends” and “Amer­i­can Id­iot” surely make the set list along with songs for their lat­est al­bum “Rev­o­lu­tion Ra­dio.” MGM Grand Gar­den Arena, 1.844.379.0370

BILL HA­LEY & HIS COMETS > APRIL 8-9

Put on your poo­dle skirts and slick back your hair to head back to the ’50s for some good ole rock- n- roll. Bill Ha­ley’s son per­forms the hits in­clud­ing “Rock Around The Clock,” “See Ya Later Al­li­ga­tor,” “Shake, Rat­tle & Roll” and more. Sun­coast Show­room, 702.636.7111

GAR­RI­SON KEILLOR > APRIL 8

The sto­ry­teller and hu­morist shares his hi­lar­i­ous anec­dotes about grow­ing up in the Amer­i­can Mid­west, the peo­ple of Lake Wobe­gon and “late- life fa­ther­hood.” The host of the ra­dio show “A Prairie Home Com­pan­ion” keeps au­di­ences on their feet with his blend of dry hu­mor, wis­dom and song. Reynolds Hall at The Smith Cen­ter, 702.749.2000

BILLY BOB THORN­TON & THE BOXMASTERS > APRIL 9-10

Billy Bob Thorn­ton is so much more than an ac­tor. He sings too. Check out the eclec­tic style of his band in­flu­enced by pop, coun­try, Bri­tish mod and South­ern Amer­i­can mu­sic that in­cludes a mix of orig­i­nal songs and cov­ers of pop, rock and coun­try hits. Cabaret Jazz at The Smith Cen­ter, 702.749.2000

JIMMY EAT WORLD > APRIL 21

The Mesa, Ari­zona- based band plays poppy songs like “The Mid­dle.” In­ter­est­ing tid­bit: The band got its name from a Crayon draw­ing gui­tarist Tom Lin­ton‘s brother drew of an­other brother eat­ing the en­tire world. An­other tid­bit: The video for “Big Casino” was filmed at the Neon Bone­yard at the Neon Mu­seum. House of Blues at Man­dalay Bay, 702.632.7600

KANSAS > APRIL 22

The band out of the ’70s rocks out with songs from their 10 al­bums in­clud­ing new num­bers from “The Pre­lude Im­plicit” and ends with the al­bum “Leftover­ture” per­formed in se­quence. That means “Carry On Way­ward Son,” “The Wall,” “What's on My Mind” and more. Reynolds Hall at the Smith Cen­ter for The Per­form­ing Arts, 702.749.2000

JOHN MAYER > APRIL 22

The singer and song­writer once told a crowd at Ed­die‘s At­tic in At­lanta that his song “Grav­ity” was “the most im­por­tant song I have ever writ­ten.” Hear that song along with “Why Ge­or­gia,” “Cov­ered in Rain” and “Daugh­ters.” T- Mo­bile Arena, 702.692.1600

BRETT ELDREDGE > APRIL 28

“Lose My Mind,” “Waited Too Long,” “Mean To Me” and “One Mis­sis­sippi” are just some of the songs the coun­try star brings from his cat­a­log of hits. Park The­ater, 1.866.740.7711
