The Upcoming Metal Concerts In Vegas

There are always shows taking place in Las Vegas, but Sin City is quickly becoming the home of Heavy Metal music. There are still over forty Metal concerts to enjoy before the year’s out, and some of the scene’s most prominent bands are set to perform in one of the world’s most iconic cities.

Psycho Swim 2022

Psycho Swim 2022 is one of the top outdoor Metal concerts of the year, and it’s taking place at AYU Dayclub in Las Vegas on Thursday, 18 August. What makes Psycho Swim so special is that it’s happening outdoors, and the lineups are always made up of stellar acts.

At Psycho Swim 2022, those with tickets can see the likes of Midnight, Elder, Eyehategod, Starcrawler, Bridge City Sinners, Uniform, Rifford, Deathchant and Early Moods perform. You can even increase the excitement as there are loads of amazing slots online with Metal and music themes, so it’s possible to win cash and take in a fantastic live concert.

Papa Roach, Falling In Reverse & Bad Wolves

You read the headline act is Papa Roach, and you’re immediately buying tickets if you’re a Metal fan. They’re one of the genre’s most iconic groups. And they will be appearing alongside the likes of Falling In Reverse and Bad Wolves at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Vegas on Thursday, 25 August.

The last time Papa Roach played Vegas was a couple of years ago, and it’s their return that is driving ticket sales and interest in what should be a great event.

Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard

The biggest artists from the Metal scene just keep coming and coming in Vegas. And this time, it’s another outdoor event, which will take place at the Allegiant Stadium on Friday, 9 September. Headlining the show are the iconic Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard.

But those two acts are supported by the likes of Poison, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Classless Act. With doors opening at 4 pm, it’s set to be another great concert, especially as Mötley Crüe are making their Vegas return after six years away.

ZZ Top

We head towards the end of the year to mention one of Vegas’s best-loved Metal acts in ZZ Top. They were last in Vegas nine months ago and will make their return to action in Sin City on Saturday, 3 December, at the Venetian Theatre inside the iconic Venetian Hotel.

But, the excellent news for ZZ Top fans is that they’re performing five dates at the venue between the third and the tenth, so there’s going to be a chance for everyone to catch them live. Even more than once.

If there’s one thing you can say about Las Vegas, it’s that whatever music you’re into, the world’s biggest and best acts are going to be performing in Sin City at some point. And, because of how iconic Vegas is, it makes for the ideal location to watch your favourite artists live.
