CeeLo Green was once a casino showroom headliner—remember Planet Hollywood’s Loberace?—but he’s trying something more intimate for his Las Vegas return. The Goodie Mobb and Gnarls Barkley singer/rapper has signed on with Caesars Palace to do two weekends worth of shows at the Cleopatra Barge lounge July 21 & 22 and July 28 & 29. Tickets range from $119 to $199 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, May 25 at ticketmaster.com.
The Voltron-like metal group Dead Cross—which includes Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantômas), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantômas), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox)—is set to play the Brooklyn Bowl on August 11. Tickets cost $26 and go on sale 10 a.m. Thursday, May 25 at ticketfly.com.
Another year, another edition of KXTE 107.5-FM’s Our Big Concert, featuring alternative rock up-and-comers like Bishop Briggs, Coin, Sir Sly, Dreamers and Fitness (which is actually comprised of alt-rock vets Max Collins of Eve 6 and Kenny Carkeet of Awolnation). The event moves to Downtown Las Vegas Events Center and takes place July 22. Tickets start at $20 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, May 25 at Ticketmaster.
