For its second year, Las Rageous goes bigger and louder
The hardest-rocking hard rock fest that may have ever rocked hard in Las Vegas returns for its second year. After a very successful 2017 run, Las Rageous is going bigger and louder in its second edition at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. And the outdoor setting and the spring weather should make for an ideal weekend to headbang, mosh and pump fists. Alt metal supergroup A Perfect Circle, featuring Maynard James Keenan of Tool, James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins and guitarist Billy Howerdel headline Day 1, (not so) coincidentally the same day their first album of all new material since 2004 is released. Check out lead single “The Doomed” off of Eat The Elephant for some intense art rock.
Day 2 headliners Five Finger Death Punch are from Las Vegas, so expect a love fest between the groove metal outfit and the hometown crowd.
Doors open at 4 p.m. daily with closing time scheduled at 1 am. That’s plenty of time to see ’80s hard rockers Judas Priest, post-hardcore unit A Day to Remember and the 15.
Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, 5:30 p.m. April 20-21, $127-$366 plus tax and fee. 702.388.2111
