How about taking in a few amazing Las Vegas shows? From rock concerts and hip-hop residencies to legendary vocalists and comedy superstars, we’re sure you’ll find something worth checking out on the spring entertainment calendar.

These two comedy legends (who have acted together in such films as “Father of the Bridge” and “¡Three Amigos!”) will share the stage at The Colosseum for “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.” They’ll be joined by Steve Martin’s frequent backing band, modern-day bluegrass purveyor Steep Canyon Rangers.

Beck

Rescheduled from a January date when Beck had to cancel at the last minute due to illness, you don’t want to miss this chance to see one of the most innovative and iconic musical artists of the last 20 years perform such genre-splicing hits as “Loser,” “Where It’s At,” and his latest, “Dreams.”

Pitbull

Select dates, March 12-26, Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood

Mr. Worldwide is back at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood following the crazy successful launch of his “Time of Our Lives Las Vegas” residency last fall. It’s going to be a party atmosphere in Zappos Theater as superstar rapper Pitbull performs his chart-topping, high-energy hits live on stage backed up by a cadre of sexy dancers.

The String Cheese Incident

Venerable, Colorado-based jam band The String Cheese Incident brings its “March Madness” tour to Las Vegas for three nights inside Brooklyn Bowl at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. Three-night passes are available for fans who don’t want to miss a single lick, as are rooms at The LINQ or Flamingo Las Vegas.

Rod Stewart

Select dates, March 19-April 5, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

Rod Stewart, March 19th - April 5th At The Colosseum At Caesars Palace

From “Maggie May” to “Hot Legs” to “Downtown Train” and beyond, Rod Stewart has consistently turned out hit songs every decade of his 40-year-plus career. Seeing him performing them all on stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in one night, backed by a 13-piece band? That’s something you shouldn’t miss if you happen to be in Las Vegas this spring. (Bonus: Find out what it’s really like to work with Rod Stewart.)

The Righteous Brothers: Bill Medley with Bucky Heard

SELECT DATES BEGINNING MARCH 23, HARRAH’S Las Vegas SHOWROOM

The Righteous Brothers: Bill Medley With Bucky Heard, Beginning March 23rd At Harrah's Las Vegas Showroom

Starting March 23, the music of The Righteous Brothers comes alive onstage at the Harrah’s Showroom Wednesdays through Saturdays when original Righteous Brother Bill Medley teams up with dynamic vocalist Bucky Heard to perform the duo’s timeless hits, including “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration” and “Unchained Melody.”

Jerry Seinfeld

April 8-9, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

Jerry Seinfeld, April 8th & 9th At The Colosseum At Caesars Palace

His eponymous 1990s sitcom may have been a television show about nothing, but Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up comedy is about everything. The frequent Colosseum headliner is known for his observational humor, meaning anything Seinfeld comes across in everyday life is fair game for fun-poking on stage. Don’t miss one of the living comedy greats.

M83

April 16, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

CHVRCHES

April 21, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

Chvrches, April 21st At Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

Although these are totally different shows at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, we’re grouping M83 and CHVRCHES together because they’re similarly positioned artists: Both have broken onto the popular music scene in the last few years with their own distinctive styles of edgy, keyboard-driven indie rock that takes root in ‘80s synthpop but brings it fully into the 21st century. Basically, you can get your cool-kid card punched twice in one week.

Frankie Moreno

beginning April 20 – PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood

Dynamic performer Frankie Moreno brings his high-energy show “Under the Influence” to the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino six nights a week. Backed by a full band and enhanced by choreography (and performances) by Lacey Schwimmer of “Dancing With The Stars” fame, Moreno will get audiences on their feet with a mix of pop originals and chart-topping covers.

Lionel Richie

Select dates beginning April 27 – Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood

Lionel Richie, Beginning April 27th At Zappos Theater At Planet Hollywood Las Vegas

We’re pretty excited about the start of Lionel Richie’s residency at Zappos Theater. Richie’s been in the music biz for decades, but his performances are still fresh, and his hits never sound dated. It’s an “Easy” bet that you’ll “Truly” be on your feet “All Night Long” singing along to hits like “Say You, Say Me,” “Hello,” and “Dancing on the Ceiling.”

Reba, Brooks & Dunn

Select dates beginning May 3, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

Back by insanely popular demand, “JENNIFER LOPEZ: ALL I HAVE” returns to Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood for another round of what’s sure to be entirely sold-out shows. You won’t want to snooze on tickets. Plus, for J. Lo super-fans, there are several ticket upgrades available, including a meet & greet photo-op with the sexy superstar herself, and a stage-side VIP table with a bottle of Moët & Chandon Imperial to truly “Live It Up.”

The Who

MAY 29, THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE

The Who, May 29th At The Colosseum At Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Another artist who had to reschedule shows due to illness, legendary rock band The Who is back on the road, touring behind the release of its career retrospective album, “The Who Hits 50!” Appearing for one night only at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the Who will play iconic hits like “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Baba O’Riley” and “My Generation,” as well as deep album cuts and band favorites.
