The biggest names in Las Vegas entertainment capped off a star-studded night at T-Mobile Arena with a rendition of Viva Las Vegas.

This just moments after hometown band, The Killers, wrapped up a 30 minute set on stage.

The crowd cheered on the performers that included headliners including, Penn & Teller, Carrot Top and David Copperfield.

One of the funniest moments of the night came during a performance from Las Vegas' own Imagine Dragons.

Midway through the set lead singer Dan Reynolds split his pants and briefly paused the set because of the wardrobe malfunction.

The fix included an assist from Washington Nationals star outfielder and Las Vegas native Bryce Harper who brought a belt out to Reynolds.

The lead singer providing several messages of unity to the crowd, in addition to a moment of silence.

“No individual will ever put fear into our hearts about gathering together in places like this united celebrating life,” Reynolds said.

NASCAR champion Kurt Busch was also among the Las Vegas natives who took the stage.

The driver already helped raise $40,000 for the 1 October shooting victims during a fundraiser earlier in the week at a local go kart track.

Al the proceeds from the concert will go to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.
