MOVE BEYOND– SURVIVE ON TRIP If you have actually been viewing J.Lo’s blockbuster competition show World of Dance, you ‘d probably be interested in viewing judge Derek Hough and his similarly popular and talented sister, dancer and starlet Julianne Hough, display some relocations. That’s exactly what’s occurring in this brand-new stage production rolling through the Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall, featuring the siblings and the Move Business Dancers carrying out everything from ballroom to tap and salsa to hip-hop.

ROGER WATERS Amped up by material from this month’s Is This the Life We Truly Want?, his first new album in 25 years, Roger Waters brings his Us+Them trip to T-Mobile Arena this weekend, a fittingly legendary location for this mega-concert. And do not stress, the program certainly celebrates the most popular material from the Pink Floyd brochure. June 16, information at 702-692-1600 or

ZIGGY MARLEY Definitely one of music’s most famous sons, Ziggy Marley will carry out on Daddy’s Day at the Hollywood Bowl.

THE ART OF RAP TOUR Downtown Las Vegas a hip-hop fortress? It hasn’t generally been true, but traditional masters of rhyme Ice-T, KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane are coming through Saturday at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, together with more recent rap stars Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Mobb Deep and more.

DEF LEPPARD In the band’s 1980s hit-making prime, Def Leppard might have been mistakenly classified with the flash-in-the-pan hair metal groups of the age. But unlike the music of those other glammy rockers, the Sheffield, England-born group’s tunes have held up gradually, which has a lot to do with a seemingly nonstop exploring schedule that has permitted the band to fine-tune and revitalize its performances. Def Leppard is back in Las Vegas for the first time in 4 years at MGM Grand Garden Arena. June 17, information at 877-880-0880 or
