The tour has been described by fans nationwide as a “greatest hits show” where every song played could legitimately be on a number of greatest hits’ albums.  The moment is timeless and fans won’t want to miss what many believe is the “best of the ’80s.” Additional special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
Sublime with Rome – Saturday, Aug. 17
Ska-punk band Sublime with Rome will bring its distinctive sound to the stage at the Mandalay Bay Beach for a performance scheduled Saturday, Aug. 17 at 9 p.m. Tickets are priced at $49.50, not including applicable service charges.
Sublime with Rome is a collaboration between Eric Wilson of the legendary band Sublime and gifted songwriter and musician Rome Ramirez. Their first big show as Sublime with Rome was in October 2009 at Cypress Hill’s annual Smokeout Festival where they performed in front of 20,000 people. A sold-out tour followed in March 2010 and that fall, Sublime with Rome entered the studio to begin recording its debut album Yours Truly, released in the summer of 2011. Songs like “Panic,” “Take It Or Leave” and “You Better Listen” are reminiscent of vintage Sublime, while songs like “Lover’s Rock” and “Murdera” pick-up on the reggae dancehall style the band began exploring in 1996. Bringing things full circle, the band’s first performance of 2012 was at the Smokeout Festival where they were joined by celebrated drummer and longtime friend Josh Freese. To make up for lost time, the trio plans to stay out on the road as long as they can. For more information about the band, visit www.sublimewithrome.com.
