April 2022 must be “Boy Band” month in Las Vegas

This is one of the hottest tickets in town right now, and honestly, they won’t come cheap. Your best bet at this point is on a verified reseller network like StubHub or Ticket Liquidator.
Backstreet Boys at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace
If you’re more of an old-school boy-band connoisseur, you can rest assured Las Vegas still has you covered in April 2022. The Backstreet Boys will be bringing the hits to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on April 8 & 9 and April 15 & 16. These four shows will be kicking off their DNA world tour for 2022.

Gaga will be performing eight shows at Park MGM in April before closing the run on May 1st. Tickets are still available on the reseller market, with entry-level pricing around the $180 mark.
The Killers come home for three sold-out shows at Cosmopolitan
As the greatest rock band to ever come out of Las Vegas, The Killers can probably play anywhere in town they wish. However, the fact that they’re playing The Chelsea at Cosmopolitan for three consecutive nights (April 15, 16, & 17) is almost too good to be true. The hometown heroes, playing arguably the coolest venue in town, times three. That’s a recipe for success, and these shows will probably be the place to be all three nights. Tickets for each show have already sold out, so reseller markets like StubHub and Ticket Liquidator are probably your only option if you’re trying to go.
Scoprions and Skid Row at Zappos Theater

Featuring support from special guests Skid Row, you can expect these shows to take you back to all your 80’s rockstar glory. Scorpions always put on an energetic show with lots of fire, anthems we all know and love, and more flying-v guitar variations than could ever be deemed necessary.
