Las Vegas regularly features top-of-the-line musical acts. For Utah residents, there are a number of concerts that are a six-hour drive or a ninety-minute flight away.

Ariana Grande has one-night performance at the T-Mobile Arena on May 11.

This princess pop has three platinum selling albums.

At 25, her digital presence amounts to 18 billion streams.

It is anticipated that her concert will include hits like ‘God is a Woman’, ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ and ‘Breathin.’

Tickets for Grande’s one-night show start at $105.

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has two shows at the Venetian Hotel, on May 24 and 25.

Her appearance is part of the Meaning of Life Tour, named after her eighth album.

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson is appearing at the Park MGM for fifteen nights, from May 17 to August 10.

Her show, Metamorphosis, features electric dance numbers and many of her number one singles.
