Remember Beck? The alt-rock icon hasn’t released an album in four years, and it’s been even longer since he played Las Vegas—creeping up on seven years since his performance at the first Vegoose music festival in 2005.

On August 8, Beck will make his return to town, for a Wednesday-night show at the Pearl. Tickets are priced from $49-$69, and go on sale this Friday at noon. No word on what material he might play, but we do know he’ll be backed by the musicians from his late-'90s Mutations Tour: guitarists Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and Smokey Hormel, bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen and drummer Joey Waronker.
