  • Craig Ferguson at Green Valley Ranch Grand Events Center

    We’ve missed Craig Ferguson on late-night. We’ve missed his puppet intros and his robot skeleton sidekick; we’ve missed seeing him pop into frame with a jaunty, “Hey, you!” Mostly, though, we’ve missed the Scottish comic’s effortlessly engaging, personal storytelling. Let’s make a night of it. April 12, 8 p.m., $42-$63. –Geoff Carter

  • Pink at T-Mobile Arena

    Ever since the magenta-haired singer arrived in the ’90s with her bright pixie cut and fun-loving attitude, she’s been churning out empowering hits for legions of teens. Catch her Beautiful Trauma tour and get a sneak peek at her upcoming album, Hurts 2B Human, due out April 26. With Julia Michaels. April 12, 8 p.m., $48-$228. –Leslie Ventura

  • Rob Lowe at Criss Angel Theater

    “The fun of it is the difficulty of carving out what goes into the show. It’s a little like being a musician,” ageless actor Rob Lowe says of his Stories I Only Tell My Friends stage production, headed to Planet Hollywood for one night. “How many Top 40 hits do you want? Do you open with a deep cut or a hit? What do you do for the encore? It’s just like all those things that go into a concert, but it’s my stories, what subjects and how I’m going to handle them.”

    Whether he’s delving into tales from the Brat Pack days or going behind the scenes on West Wing or Parks and Recreation, Lowe is looking to offer insight into Hollywood and his life in the spotlight, and his first time doing it in Las Vegas is a special occasion. “Vegas is a big deal for me. I’ve seen so many amazing performers there over the years, so to take my own little crack on the Strip is a challenge I’ve always wanted,” he says. “It’s sort of designed for the Vegas clientele in that it plays to people from all over the country.” April 13, 7:30 p.m., $59-$149. –Brock Radke

  • Elephante at EBC at Night

    Encore Beach Club heats up with progressive house DJ and producer Tim Wu, aka Elephante, who might have another Top 10 dance hit with “Otherside.” The LA-based artist trained as a classical pianist and is known to incorporate melodic pop and heavy trap into his energetic sets. April 13, 10:30 p.m., $25-$45. –Brock Radke

  • Holi Festival of Colors at Sunset Park

    This visually stunning Hindu festival originated in India and celebrates the beginning of spring by raining powdered dye down upon revelers. Wear white so the colors really pop. April 13, 11 a.m., $7. –Leslie Ventura

  • Ghostface Killah at Brooklyn Bowl

    Wu-Tang’s master storyteller has a deep and distinguished catalog from which to pluck onstage, including September’s latest solo entry, The Lost Tapes. With CalenRaps, Mike Xavier. April 13, 8 p.m., $28-$32. –Spencer Patterson

  • Record Store Day at Local Shops

    David Bowie, Madonna, Modest Mouse and Sly & The Family Stone are among dozens of artists releasing 2019 RSD exclusives. Look for them at area Record City and Zia Record Exchange locations. April 13. –Spencer Patterson

  • Kevin McDonald at The Space

    One of the cofounders of the endlessly quotable Kids in the Hall comedy troupe comes to Las Vegas, also known as “the pit of penultimate darkness.” Like we said, endlessly quotable. April 14, 8 p.m., $25. –Geoff Carter
