Celtic rockers Flogging Molly and guest L.A. Latin world fusion rockers Ozomatli took to the stage at Boulevard Pool in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday night to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Weekend.
The concert opened with Ozomatli, who energized the outdoor audience above the Strip before Flogging Molly lit up the stage with their punk rock and festive Celtic instruments.
The boisterous band performed a raucous, adrenaline-filled show that had their fans screaming along to hits including “Every Dog Has Its Day,” “No More (Paddy’s Lament)” and “Revolution.”
The Saturday night stop was part of Flogging Molly’s “10th Annual Green 17 Tour.”
Upcoming at Boulevard and the nearby Chelsea: Empire of the Sun at the Chelsea (April 9); Grouplove at Boulevard Pool (April 10); Lana Del Rey at the Chelsea (April 11); Young the Giant at Boulevard Pool (April 11); Ellie Goulding at Boulevard Pool (April 12); Lorde at Boulevard Pool (April 15 and 16); Haim at Boulevard Pool (April 17); and Foster the People at Boulevard Pool (April 18).

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
