    Empire of the Sun Rocks The Chelsea … Literally

    By Lauren Del Frago

    Empire of the Sun’s show at The Cosmopolitan was like a journey through outer space to another planet, and then back down to Earth again

    Bastille’s Dan Smith Isn’t Very Cool, According to Him

    By Camille Cannon

    It’s been four years since the alt-pop band shot to international ubiquity on the strength of their single “Pompeii,” and frontman Dan Smith still doesn’t think of himself as a rock star.

    By Jarret Keene

    "The little group I saw play a campus pizza shop for a crowd of no one two decades ago packed the 3,000-seat Chelsea."

    Sting Delivers the NYE Show We Needed

    By Jason R. Latham

    After the year we’ve had, and considering the great ones we’ve lost, seeing the man himself step into the spotlight at The Chelsea instantly washed away the hard feelings of 2016.

    REVISITED: Have to tread carefully here. You see, I’m not a huge fan of Bob Dylan, who’s playing Mandalay Bay on Oct. 27 with Mark Knopfler opening ($69-$143). But I don’t mean to say that I’m not a fan at all: I like many of Dylan’s songs, and my respect for his songwriting and performing talents is genuine and true. But I’m not half the fan some of my friends are, and “real” Dylan fans think their alpha singer-songwriter is above reproach. Even when Dylan’s bad, they tell me, he’s brilliant.

    Born of the Desert

    By Miriam Coleman

    The Killers have never been shy about their local roots, but on their latest album, they flaunt them. Named for the motto on the Nevada state flag (and sharing its title with the band’s Las Vegas recording studio), Battle Born is firmly grounded in the geography of desert highways, neon lights and fading motels. As the Killers were finishing their fourth studio album in New York this summer, Vegas Seven sat down with drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. to talk about their hometown, musical influences and what’s next.

    A KICK IN THE HEAD: If you tune your radio to virtually any station, you’d have a one-in-three chance of hearing “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People. (Other two possibilities: Avicii’s deathless “Levels” and Gotye’s zombielike “Somebody That I Used to Know.”) A breakout pop hit is a tough thing to come by, and Foster the People is rewarding your patronage by playing what, according to the critics, is a fun live show.
