Check out the Park on the Strip and you’ll see the Golden Knights and Cher are back in town this weekend, but so are some familiar performers who don’t visit Las Vegas as often. Take your pick and enjoy from these entertainment offerings.
VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS VS. WINNIPEG JETS After a winning start and rough first road trip, the Golden Knights are back at T-Mobile Arena Friday night hosting Winnipeg and hosting Military Appreciation/Remembrance Day. Current and past military members will be honored throughout the night, fans will receive a military coin and program poster, the team will wear specialty camouflage jerseys during warmups and raffle proceeds will benefit Metro Police and military support initiatives.

ADAM SANDLER If this major movie star and beloved goofy standup comedian was doing just one rare show in Las Vegas, it would be a big deal. But this is the beginning of Sandler’s comedy residency at the Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan, with future shows booked for November 17 and January 27 with a good chance of more to come in 2018. There’s an even better chance he’ll play “The Thanksgiving Song” and “The Hannukah Song” to get you in the holiday mood. November 10, info at cosmopolitanlasvegas.com.
CLASSIC CHER Of the newest wave of resident headliner productions on the Strip, it’s the show with the most established star that packs in the most production. As she runs through numerous hits from various eras, Cher dances with gladiators, duets with Sonny, rides an elephant and more. And when she’s off-stage for a costume change, aerialists soar above Park Theater and massive video screens keep the crowd cheering and dancing. November 10-11, info at montecarlo.com.
PETER CETERA Speaking of Cher’s show: What are the odds that Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Peter Cetera — known just as much for his solo hits as for his career with Chicago — pops into Park Theater Saturday night to duet on their 1988 hit “After All” before his show at the Tropicana Theater? It’s just down the street, after all. November 11, info at troplv.com.
CHRISTOPHER CROSS Did you know? Christopher Cross, who in 1981 won three Grammys for “Sailing” and an Oscar for Best Original Song from a movie for “Arthur’s Theme,” is originally from San Antonio, Texas. Seems like his adult contemporary pop — or “yacht rock,” as it’s known on the Sirius XM Radio channel that plays those two songs constantly — would have come from anywhere else. Catch Cross at the Silverton’s Veil Pavilion Saturday. November 11, info at silvertoncasino.com.
