Their tour promotes the band’s “One More Time…” album. Released last Friday, it marks the first time in the decade the San Diego punk-pop trio has worked together.

Tickets for the Vegas show will go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 27, via AXS. Presales through the band, Live Nation, and AXS begin Tuesday, October 24.

First Toby Shows Since Cancer Diagnosis

Toby Keith will headline two shows at Dolby Live at Park MGM on December 10 and 11. They will be the 62-year-old country singer’s first headlining shows since revealing his stomach cancer diagnosis in June 2022.

“It’s been a while,” Keith said in a YouTube video. “You know what I’ve been doing — been on the old rollercoaster, but Almighty’s riding shotgun. He’s letting me drive for some reason, but we’re making a big announcement. I’m doing a little deal and thought I’d start in the great Las Vegas.”

Tickets for the two shows will go on sale on Friday, October 27 at 10 a.m. PT through Ticketmaster.

A Very Kelly New Year

Kelly Clarkson has added four more dates to her Planet Hollywood residency, “Chemistry,” which had been presumed finished following its 10-show run this summer.

The 41-year-old “American Idol” alum returns to the Bakkt Theater on two already monstrously busy weekends — New Year’s Eve (December 30 and 31) and Super Bowl LVIII (February 9 and 10).

Tickets for the new dates go on sale Friday, October 27, via Ticketmaster, with a presale starting on Tuesday, October 24.
