Las Vegas Music Scene Tumultuous: Beyoncé Rumors, Adele’s Outburst, Star-studded Concerts and The Beatles ‘LOVE’ Closure

12

The music scene of Las Vegas held its breath in anticipation this past Sunday as Live Nation posted an enigmatic Instagram picture of a light-haired woman in a cowboy hat, her identity concealed from the viewer. “Expect a big announcement on Monday,” the caption read. The possibilities sent a wave of frenzied activity across the country.

Was it who professional speculation and fan gossip claimed it could be? Beyoncé? After all, she had recently generated enormous excitement and headlines with her new country album, ‘Cowboy Carter,’ which reached an impressive landmark shortly after its release on March 29th by becoming the most-streamed album within a mere day. A tantalizing prospect, indeed.

Come Monday, however, expectation turned to a blend of surprise and disappointment when the mysterious cowgirl was revealed to be none other than Lainey Wilson. Though unequivocally talented in her own right, Wilson is no Beyoncé, a fact that left fans grappling with a colossal contrast in star power. Wilson will perform exclusively a single show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 14, coinciding with NFR weekend and as part of her “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” tour. Joining her as opening acts are Tracy Lawrence and Mae Estes.

Still, no stranger to the Vegas scene, Wilson’s cowboy boot prints can be found across the streets of the city where she had performed four consecutive days at The Theater at Virgin Hotels only last December. Nevertheless, Live Nation’s decision to stoke interest among both ‘wild horses’ (as Wilson fans dub themselves), and the fervent Beyoncé fan base, known as the BeyHive, led to an inundation of reactions on its Instagram post.

Meanwhile, singer Adele managed to command attention at her Saturday show at Caesars Palace through a slightly awkward misunderstanding with an irksome heckler. While conversing with her audience between songs on this first day of Pride Month, Adele heard what she perceived as a homophobic slur, “Pride sucks!” from the crowd. The pop sensation instantly fired back at the intolerant declaration, “Did you come to my fucking show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you fucking stupid? Don’t be so fucking ridiculous!”

However, a different video clip offered an alternate perspective on the incident: the heckler was merely lamenting about their work, shouting “Work sucks!” in response to Adele discussing her hectic schedule.

Finally, the cataclysmic closure of Cirque du Soleil’s “The Beatles LOVE” has not come without an aura of uncertainty and conjecture surrounding its future. The announcement by The Mirage to temporarily close for a substantial three-year period for transitioning into the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel blindsided Circus officials. Ringo Starr offered a glimmer of hope in a recent interview when he entertained the idea of a twilight ‘LOVE’ show to take over the Vegas music scene.

Despite this upheaval, Ringo Starr made his third and final visit to “Love” last Thursday with his All-Starr Band. The Beatles drummer and his troupe then concluded their impressive run at The Venetian Theatre a mere two evenings later, leaving the town abuzz with rumors and speculation.

Though Las Vegas may have recently experienced a roller coaster of emotions throughout its high-profile entertainment landscape, it continues to pulse with anticipation and excitement with every beat of the music. And while artists and fans alike resume their routines, the city waits with bated breath for what might come next in the grand theater of the world’s most illustrious entertainment destination.
