When we think of Las Vegas, gambling is usually the first thing that springs to mind. However, while the strip is home to an array of impressive casinos, some of the world’s greatest musicians descend on Sin City to play shows. If you’re heading to Las Vegas in the coming months and want to see a spectacle, here are some of the best concerts worth catching.

Formed in 2005, the Jonas Brothers are an American band who came to prominence thanks to their appearances on the Disney Channel. Since then, the three brothers (Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas) have gone on to sell over 17 million albums worldwide, alongside earning a string of hits, including the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Sucker.” The Jonas Brothers bring their Remember This tour to Las Vegas for a two-night stint at the Park Theater on August 20th-21st.

Harry Styles

Finding fame in One Direction, Harry Styles has gone on to carve out a successful solo career. With his two studio albums (Harry Styles and Fine Line) topping the Billboard 200 chart and his insanely catchy “Watermelon Sugar” hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Styles returns to Las Vegas with his Love on Tour. Whether you’re a long-term Directioner or solely a fan of Styles, you must grab tickets to his show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 4th.
