The Black Keys

Lots of concert news this Monday morning, as a handful of noteworthy shows go on sale this weekend.

Ohio blues-rock duo The Black Keys, who once played the diminutive Cooler Lounge a decade-plus ago, headline The Joint for New Year's "weekend." They and indie rock supergroup Divine Fits -- which includes Spoon's Britt Daniel and former Wolf Parade-r Dan Boeckner -- will play Dec. 30-31. Tickets $100 and up go on sale this Friday, Sept. 14. 

Green Day, which last played Las Vegas three years ago, at Mandalay Bay Events Center, return for a headlining show Feb. 8 at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Tickets from $30 to $70 go on sale Friday as well. The Oakland punk-pop trio will actually visit the venue before that date, on the Sept. 21-22 weekend, as part of the sold-out iHeartRadio festival. 

A Perfect Circle, one of three bands fronted by Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer), plays a one-off show Dec. 29 at Planet Hollywood's theater/performing arts center/whatever. Tickets are $47 and $66, and go on sale Saturday. Comedian Neil Hamburger opens, and one wonders when Keenan will finally just set up a local venue residency, or even move here, given the frequency of his bands' appearances here. (Note: We're not complaining.)

Finally, the Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler Oct. 27 show at Mandalay Bay Events Center that goes on sale this Saturday has set ticket prices. They'll range from $60 to $130.
