PERFECT VISION: Justin Timberlake strikes me as a guy with drawers full of pocket squares, maybe a walk-in closet full of porkpie hats. A stylish guy, a real natty dresser. What I actually know about Justin Timberlake could fit in a dick-sized box, but I know this: As a former Mouseketeer and boy band survivor, Timberlake takes performing seriously. Timberlake brings his 20/20 World Experience Tour to MGM Grand Garden Arena for two nights, November 29-30 ($53-$203), which means velvety vocals, synchronized dance moves and more than 30 songs. In “Suit and Tie,” Timberlake croons, “I want to show you a few things.” According to the lyrics, he’s talking about love, but Timberlake has bigger plans. He wants to show you everything: his vocal range, his dance moves, his acting chops. He wants you to love him, and he’s pulling out all the stops.
HAVOC YOUR WAY: Jared Leto is charming film critics with his role as a transsexual in Dallas Buyers Club, but on November 30 he’ll wow rock fans when Thirty Seconds to Mars headlines X107.5’s annual Holiday Havoc at The Joint ($35-$150) along with special guests Panic! at the Disco, Pepper and Parade of Lights. Attendees who spring for $150 tickets support Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas and have an opportunity to meet the bands at an exclusive pre-show party. I believe that’s what we call a “win-win” situation.
ON SALE NOW: Fleetwood Mac recently canceled tour dates in Australia and New Zealand so group co-founder John McVie could undergo cancer treatment, which means their show at MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 30 ($99.50-$224.50) is the group’s sole remaining scheduled appearance. I know Christine McVie went her own way a long time ago, but 80 percent of Fleetwood Mac is still a pretty big Mac attack.
