Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq Announces Slew of Acts, Starting With Elvis Costello & The Roots
Brooklyn Bowl, a new bowling and concert venue at The Linq on the Las Vegas Strip, has announced its opening act: Elvis Costello & The Roots.
The group, featuring the house band for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” will play March 15-16, 2014 at the as-yet-unopened, 2,000-capacity venue. Elvis Costello & The Roots did a recent album collaboration, “Wise Up Ghost,” which we were able to endure about 30 seconds of, but it may just not be our thing. Here’s a sample.
While the 32 bowling lanes are sure to keep things lively at Brooklyn Bowl, the slate of acts is shaping up to be impressive.

Here’s a look at the Brooklyn Bowl space inside The Linq back in Feb. of 2013, when it was a blank slate.
You can see the opening in the ceiling, allowing for upper-level viewing of the entertainment.
Brooklyn Bowl is expected to be similar to its New York counterpart (see below), including leather couches in the bowling lane area.
Dining will be provided by Blue Ribbon Restaurants, an award-winning, New York-based restaurant group.
