American rock band The Used is bringing its unique new tour to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas at The Linq for two shows at 8 p.m. on May 24 and 25, 2016.
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the band will be performing its albums “Self-Titled” and “In Love and Death” in their entirety on consecutive nights. The sets will also be supported by more of the band’s most requested hits. Vocalist Bert McCracken, bassist Jeph Howard, drummer Dan Whitesides and guitarist Justin Shekoski will bring Brooklyn Bowl to life.
In 2001, four teenagers from Utah created a band and released a collection of albums that shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock was the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.
Since forming in Orem, Utah, The Used have released 6 albums and 2 EPs – “The Used” (2002), “In Love and Death” (2004), “Lies for the Liars” (2007), “Shallow Believer” EP (2008), “Artwork” (2009), “Vulnerable” (2012), “The Ocean of the Sky” EP (2013), and “Imaginary Enemy” (2013).
The Used’s latest LP “Imaginary Enemy” put the band’s political frustrations and commitment to social change at its forefront and has opened up the platform for conversation among fans and critics alike. The album climbed high on the Independent, Tastemaker Albums, Hard Rock, Alternative, Digital Albums and Top Rock charts.
The band is also touring in support of its highly-anticipated “Live and Acoustic at The Palace,” the CD/DVD combination set for release on April 1, 2016. With every online ticket purchased for The Used at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, guests will receive one standard digital copy of the upcoming album.

About Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas
Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand’s third location. With three levels spanning over 80,000 square feet, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is one of the largest performance venues in America and is described by People Magazine as being “on the fast path to being Vegas’ über cool place.” Located at The LINQ, the open-air district in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, the multi-dimensional space boasts 32 lanes of bowling, five on-site bars and rockin’ comfort food by the world-renowned Bromberg Brothers’ Blue Ribbon Restaurants, including their iconic Fried Chicken celebrated on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” On any given night, more than 2,000 concertgoers can enjoy live music programming from the general admission area, the luxurious bowlers’ lounges adjacent to the lanes, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all. Since opening in March 2014, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas has seen notable performances by Elvis Costello & The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, Primus, O.A.R. and 21 Pilots.
The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. Brooklyn Bowl New York has hosted countless notable performances, including shows by Kanye West, Adele, Paul Simon, Moby and Guns N’Roses and has been named Zagat’s “Best Music Venue – New York City” for three consecutive years (as well as “Best Bowling Alley” and “Best Brooklyn Venue”) and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone. Eater described their menu as “epic,” while The New Yorker hailed the club’s unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling and food as “like nailing a spare on a four-ten split.” The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at The O2 in London, and was hailed by The London Evening Standard as a “…wonderland of food, drink, music and pins”.
