Posted by Brooke Sullivan on Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 at 10:31am

There’s a lot to expect for fabulous entertainment for early May and on in the Reno-Tahoe area.

Just Announced!

Nine Days: Remember that hit from the 90s “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)”? Well, that’s these guys! Based out of long island, the band is back on tour after a decade hiatus and will be playing shows on May 18 and May 19 at The Brew Brothers in the Eldorado.

Priests: This emerging post-punk band released a hard-hitting, acclaimed album last year called “Nothing Feels Natural” as well as a swanky touring gig with Franz Ferdinand. They hail from Washington, D.C. and play on May 18 at The Holland Project.

Rockin’ Rib Fest: Casino Fandango down in Carson City is hosting its first-ever Memorial Day Weekend! Rib cookers will come from Texas, Chicago and Carson to dole out their hearty fare and will be paired with live music, crafts and family activities as a part of this inaugural event.

Grandma Lee: This senior comedian was a finalist on America’s Got Talent and even performed on Last Comic Standing. Check her out on June 8 and 9 at the Pioneer Underground.

Janet Jackson: Janet is back for an arena show at Harveys in Lake Tahoe. She performed last year in Reno and blew the roof off the Grand Sierra Resort. Expect the classics like “Rhythm Nation” and “All for You” along with her newer hits. Catch her on August 11 with beautiful views of the lake in the background.

Justin Moore: An Arkansas country singer with a new album called “Kinda Don’t Care” out, catch Justin Moore’s hits on August 23 at the Grand Sierra Resort.

Simple Minds: This Scottish band is responsible for the theme to the iconic movie “The Breakfast Club” called “Don’t You Forget About Me”. They have other epic hits too, like “Alive and Kicking” and “Belfast Child”. The band hasn’t been to the states in five years and will return for a show on October 20 at the Grand Sierra Resort.

More Shows!

Cody Jinks and Red Shahan: Both from Texas, these two country singers are more traditional than the pop-style male singers out right now. Jinks is one of the “red dirt” county stars and emerged victorious with his latest album “I’m Not the Devil”. Shahan was recently named as one of 10 new country artists you need to know by Rolling Stone magazine. They’ll be live at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on May 3.

Sammy Hagar and the Hagar Family: This legendary rocker plays in Tahoe at least once every year. His first show of the year will be all acoustic and feature his sons Aaron, Andrew and Karl. The whole family will be rocking out on May 4 at Harrah’s.

War: Yes, you read that right – “Low Rider” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”. Original member Lonnie Jordan is bringing the rock/funk powerhouse with a mix or older and newer players. They’ll be performing at Boomtown on May 5.

Maks, Val and Peta: Called “Confidential”, this show is anything but. These three dancers have a big fan base due to their work on Dancing with the Stars. You’re going to get story line along with fantastic dance moves. Just announced: So You Think You Can Dance finalists Kiki and Koko are set to perform. See it all on May 11 at the Grand Sierra Resort.
