Another Band With 'Las Vegas' Reference In Their Name Releases A New Video

This time without William Shatner and this time with a Nikki Sixx connection.

I've actually seen The Last Vegas live once and thought, "They're a perfectly decent afterthought." Probably in the same way people view the bands Shooting Star or Missouri today.

But I'm old school: The Last Vegas ain't got nothin' on Shooting Star.

So they have a new view out, a new record in the works, Nikki Sixx discovered them, blah blah woof woof.


The Last Vegas back with a video for "She's My Confusion," US and Euro Tour announced with Buckcherry and Hardcore Superstar, new album in the works!

Chicago rockers The Last Vegas are back with another eye-catching music video for the song "She's My Confusion" off the band's fourth full-length album, Bad Decisions, released last fall through FrostByte Media.

The video is produced and directed by the Chicago-based video production company Motion Source Video Solutions, the same team responsible for the "Evil Eyes" music video.

The video is based on a well-known Chicago area ghost story named Resurrection Mary that's been around since the '30s. The young woman, Mary, had spent the evening dancing at the Oh Henry Ballroom (now the Willowbrook) with a boyfriend. Following an argument that evening Mary stormed out into the cold winter's night, leaving the ballroom behind and walked along Archer Avenue. Not long after, she was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver who fled the scene leaving her to die. The story survives through the many men who claim picking up a young female hitchhiker along Archer Avenue between the Willowbrook Ballroom (which is the locale for the video) and Resurrection Cemetery. When reaching the cemetery, the young woman is let out only to disappear into the cemetery.

"The Willowbrook Ballroom is a Chicago musical institution; one bad-ass, old-school place which drips of mystery, intrigue and aura. What better place to film an unconventional rock video for 'She's My Confusion?' We stepped back in time and addressed whether those noises we hear in the night are real, or just a dream?" - Adam Arling

TLV are a straight-up rock n' roll meets garage/punk rock band that turn any event into a raucous. Hailing from Chicago and formed in 2005, TLV burst onto the national scene in 2009 when Motley's Crue's Nikki Sixx saw them play live in Los Angeles and subsequently co-produced their third album, Whatever Gets You Off. More touring followed, including a stint opening Motley Crue's "Saints Of Los Angeles" tour. The Onion referred to their sound as "Swaggering, stomping, balls-out guitar rock", while The Chicago Sun-Times declared them to be "Red hot garage-rockers."

The Last Vegas is: Chad Cherry (vocals), Adam Arling (guitars), Danny Smash (bass), Nate Arling (drums) and Johnny Wator (guitars).

TLV are in studio this month laying down tracks for their fifth full-length album, title yet to be determined, working with the great Roy Z (Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson, Sepultura) and immediately following up with a North American tour and then a European tour supporting Buckcherry and Hardcore Superstar, but they're not doing any of that alone.
