What happens in Vegas isn’t staying in Vegas.
Chicago glam-punk rockers The Last Vegas will round out their Ontario and Quebec tour with a stop at Brantford’s Club NV, opening for Bleeker Ridge on Saturday, Nov. 24.
“It would be positively unnatural to not rock Canada in 2012, TLV style,” said The Last Vegas lead singer Chad Cherry. “It’s been well over two years since we hit the Great White North with Motley Crue, so we’re excited to see all our Canadian TLV warriors.”
The band, which consists of Cherry, guitarist Adam Arling, guitarist Johnny Wator, bass guitarist Danny Smash and drummer Nate Arling, describes its sound as what you would get “if you tossed some '70s Aerosmith and '80s Guns N’ Roses in a tumbler, shook it hard and poured it on the rocks.”
The Last Vegas hit it big in 2008 after beating out 8,000 contestants to win Guitar Center’s On-Stage: Your Chance to Make Rock History contest. The contest won the band a spot opening for Motley Crue on the band’s two-month Saints of Los Angeles tour.
From there, The Last Vegas got the attention of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, who took the band under his wing to help release its 2009 album Whatever Gets You Off.
For their latest album, Bad Decisions, The Last Vegas decided to take the reins and make it their own.
“It was our baby with this one,” Cherry said. “This time out the tunes are a little more raw, a little more groovy and more Las Vegas than the previous album.”
