3. Not one, but TWO great bands to choose from
There is no shortage of entertainment tonight! Whether you prefer rock or more of an EDM-pop vibe, you’ll be able to let your hair down after a long day.
Train performing tonight at THINK 2018.
After you’ve met the robot, it may be time to “Meet Virginia.” Train is a multi-GRAMMY award-winning band from San Francisco, CA, that has had 14 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 list since the release of their debut self-titled album. Find them at the Mandalay Bay Events Center from 7:00-10:00 PM PST.
Pop duo, The Chainsmokers, to perform tonight at THINK 2018.
But first, let’s take a “Selfie” with The Chainsmokers. The Chainsmokers have evolved into a dominating musical force with a diverse repertoire of songs that have led them to become today’s hottest young artist/producer duo. They will be performing at the MGM Grand Garden Arena from 7:00-10:00 PM PST.
Whichever you choose, it’s sure to be a night to remember.
