Elvis Costello is no stranger to our city, but few might have pegged him as a candidate to play an extended run of dates on the Strip. Wynn Las Vegas is apparently one of those few because it has booked the English singer-songwriter (and his band The Imposters) for six dates next year (February 28, March 2 & 3, 7, 9 & 10) at Encore Theater. Tickets ranging from $60 to $225 go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, October 20 at wynnlasvegas.com.
Kelly Clarkson, due to release her R&B-centric album Meaning of Life next week, headlines the Not So Silent Night holiday show at the Joint on December 3, with support from pop-rock act All Time Low. Tickets ranging from $36 to $256 go on sale 10 a.m. October 20 at axs.com.
Two New Year’s Eve shows were announced this week. R&B and hip-hop throwbacks Ashanti and Ja Rule will hold court at Brooklyn Bowl, with tickets ranging from $75 to $125 going on sale 10 a.m. Thursday, October 19 at ticketfly.com. Meanwhile, House of Blues will usher in the New Year with punk veterans Pennywise, with $30-$50 tickets going on sale 10 a.m. Friday, October 20 at livenation.com.
