The last weekend in February of 2022, will feature two big name acts, one of which is Billy Joel that Saturday.

It looks like I have plans for two weeks after my birthday in 2022, as the one-and-only Billy Joel is going to be playing February 26 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The last time I was in Vegas was for my 50th, so I don't see why I shouldn't visit five years later to see this show.

This Billy Joel concert is part of a big 'two act' weekend that the home of the Raiders is excited about. On the Friday night of that weekend (February 25, 2022) they are hosting Metallica. I won't be getting tickets for that show, but if you have the money and are fans of both acts, why not?

I have seen Billy Joel five times, including once in Chicago and once in Los Angeles; most recently I saw him when he played Mile High in 2019. All shows have been great, and I'm really looking forward to this Las Vegas one. 'Billy Joel in Las Vegas' - it just sounds awesome.

How convenient is it that the new Avelo Airlines at the Northern Colorado Regional Airport begins flying to Las Vegas in mid-December of 2021? It's going to feel great flying on Avelo to see a show at Allegiant, after Allegiant bailed on their own plans to fly out of Loveland. 

I expect at the is show Billy will mention the Las Vegas Raiders, where me and my friends will shout:

Raiders Suck!

It's going to be great.

Tickets for the February 26, 2022 concert go on sale October 29, 2021, at 12 p.m. MST. through TicketMaster.
