Eric Church to Hold Service at T-Mobile Arena
🎸 🎶 🎤 Live entertainment will be a thing in 2021, but touring artists are also placing big bets on Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena in 2022. Country musician and reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Eric Church has announced he’ll bring his 55-city “The Gather Again Tour” to T-Mobile on Friday, May 13, 2022.
Yes, Friday the 13th. Church’s show will be staged in-the-round rather than on one end of the arena, a setup designed “in order to accommodate as many fans as possible,” according to the announcement. Church is set to drop a trio of albums—separately titled “Heart, &, and Soul”—in April 2021.
Bill Burr Will Offend the Easily Offended at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
🎙 🎟 💀 Comedian Bill Burr, a man revels in the ability to strike a nerve with someone in every audience, will get another chance when he takes the stage for two nights at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on July 2 and 3. Burr, who most recently sent pearl-clutchers into fits when he mocked an artist’s performance and (gasp!) mispronounced another artist’s name at that most sacred of cows, the 2021 GRAMMYs, is returning to the resort for the first time since 2019. The two shows were originally scheduled for 2020 but, you know. Tickets can be purchased via The Cosmopolitan website.
