Sometimes the challenge of going to see a concert in Las Vegas is that you’re torn between what show to see—many times, major headliners are often competing at various venues on the Strip, making the selection process agonizing. But not this week! The iHeartRadio Music Festival is bringing together some great acts, some of whom just played Vegas, others who haven’t been here for a while. But together, they’ll create an unforgettable weekend for fans of every music stripe.
As tragic as the death of Kurt Cobain was, the band that rose from the ashes of Nirvana, Foo Fighters, has been a mainstay of modern rock since 1994, and founder, lead vocalist and guitarist Dave Grohl has been one of the genre’s best ambassadors, showing not only remarkable songwriting abilities, but humility and a genuinely great sense of humor. The band’s influences range from everything from The Beatles to Queen to punk rock, and their energy resonates to this day with 11 albums. Fans will no doubt be expecting favorites like “Learn to Fly,” “Times Like These” and “Low,” but there should be plenty of surprises as well—Grohl always likes to mix things up.
Kelly Clarkson, who just finished up a mini-residency at Planet Hollywood Resort in support of her latest album, Chemistry, is once again ready to prove why she’s arguably the busiest superstar in the industry. Expect singles like “Since U Been Gone,” as well as plenty of new material that explores her growing empowerment following her 2020 divorce.
The slate has so many more powerhouses set to deliver unforgettable sets: Singer/songwriter Lenny Kravitz (“Fly Away”); rock band Fall Out Boy (“Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”); singer/songwriter Miguel (“Sure Thing”); singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow (“All I Wanna Do”); hip-hop group Public Enemy (“Fight the Power”); country artist Tim McGraw (“Live Like You Were Dying”); rapper Travis Scott (“SICKO MODE”); R&B group TLC (“No Scrubs”); and many, many more. Here’s to conflict-free entertainment!
T-Mobile Arena, 6:30 p.m. Sept. 22-23, starting at $86.75 plus tax and fee. axs.com
