21 Things to Do In Las Vegas This Weekend After Dark

Luke Bryan lives it up at Resorts World, Silk Sonic hits the stage at Park MGM and The Rock 'N' Roll Marathon zips through Vegas

Las Vegans have been feeling stood up lately. First, we had all the Adele drama at The Colosseum, and then COVID came for Justin Bieber and his concert at T-Mobile Arena got delayed until June.

Fortunately, just when we’re all in need of a sure thing, the residency headliners have come to our rescue. This weekend will see the debut of some uber-anticipated residencies, and the return of some superstars that will help us forget about all those times we bought a ticket and then got left at the altar.

Here’s 21 things to do in Las Vegas this weekend.
