The Las Vegas Soul Festival hits the Orleans Arena
Teddy Riley is a man of many talents: Creator of the new jack swing genre, a singer-songwriter, and the founder of two R&B groups: Guy (“I Like,” “Groove Me” and “Let’s Chill”) and Blackstreet (“Don’t Leave Me,” “Before I Let You Go” and “No Diggity”). That’s not all: This year, Riley brings some of the hottest R&B acts together as he presents the Las Vegas Soul Festival at Orleans Arena. On the roster, besides Guy and Blackstreet, is first lady of Bad Boy Records Faith Evans, who will grace the stage with “You Used to Love Me,” “Soon as I Get Home” and upbeat singles like “Love Like This.” R&B female group SWV, known for “I’m So into You,” “Right Here (Human Nature Remix)” and “Weak,” is back and better than ever (they were recently awarded with the Lady of Soul Award at 2017’s Soul Train Awards). Rounding it out are Donell Jones (“Where I Wanna Be”), Jon B. (“They Don’t Know”) and Ginuwine (“Pony”).
Orleans Arena, 8 p.m. Dec. 2, starting at $32.11 plus tax and fee. 800.745.3000
