LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The shiny new building within Southern Nevada's landscape opened its doors in 2020, but the pandemic kept Allegiant Stadium from hosting concerts, international events and entertainment acts -- that is, until now. Here's a look at what to expect from the state-of-the-art venue in the coming weeks.
GOLD CUP FINAL - AUG. 1
After the Garth Brooks concert, Allegiant Stadium is going from football to fútbol.
The Gold Cup Final will be held inside the Death Star on Aug. 1 -- showcasing the two best soccer teams in North and Central America and helping to solidify Las Vegas as the sports and entertainment capital of the world.
"I think the tourism people will come from all over the world to watch this final and so it's very, very exciting," said Rich Ryerson, UNLV men's soccer head coach.
The game sold out in 90 minutes.
NFL PRESEASON - SEAHAWKS AT RAIDERS - AUG. 14
The long wait is finally over. Las Vegans will finally get to see their very own Raiders in person August 14 as they take on the Seattle Seahawks at Allegiant Stadium.
This is the first of three preseason games for the Raiders, but the only one at home ahead of the season opener on Sept. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
SUMMERSLAM - AUG. 21
Then, later in August, WWE's biggest party of the summer will tag in.
The SummerSlam event will happen on Aug. 21 as super stars from WWE get in the ring for the pay-per-view event. It will be the first time ever the event is taking place inside an NFL stadium.
"It's so cool that we're bringing SummerSlam to Allegiant Stadium on Aug. 21 because it's going to be mental," said WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre. "The fact that it's going to be in Vegas is even crazier. It's going to be twice as big."
GUNS N' ROSES - AUG. 27
The following week, the Death Star will turn into a jungle.
Guns N' Roses is returning to Las Vegas on Aug. 27. The rock band will perform inside the stadium for the first time.
Tickets are still available.
