Charlie Puth drops by the Pearl Sunday.

This weekend presents your last chance to catch Stevie Wonder at the Park Theater as well as one of the few remaining home games during the Las Vegas Aces’ inaugural season at Mandalay Bay Events Center. Here are some other music and comedy events to choose from in the next three days.

BACKSTREET BOYS Friday and Saturday are the last “Larger Than Life” shows at Planet Hollywood until October, so it might be time to revisit the Backstreet Boys, who have added their new hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” to the over-the-top Zappos Theater production. August 10-11, info at caesars.com.

BILLY GARDELL If you miss seeing this comedian on his former show “Mike & Molly,” check out the CBS sitcom “Young Sheldon” for some guest spots. Gardell has always maintained a presence on the stand-up stage throughout his TV career and he lands at the Green Valley Ranch Events Center Saturday. August 11, info at stationcasinoslive.com.

MYA R&B singer Mya (“Case of the Ex,” “My Love is Like…Wo”) has a new album (“TKO”) to show off and that’s the plan for her Saturday night show at Hard Rock Live on the Strip. Providing soulful support is Las Vegas’ very own Cameron Calloway. August 11, info at hardrock.com.

CHARLIE PUTH From “We Don’t Talk Anymore” to “See You Again,” Charlie Puth’s incredibly catchy songs have been ubiquitous radio fixtures for the last three years. The budding pop star’s Voicenotes tour stops at the Pearl on Sunday. August 12, info at palms.com.

REBELUTION California quartet Rebelution is one of the leading voices of modern reggae music and the group anchors a good-vibes-only bill Sunday at the Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan, also including Stephen Marley, Common Kings and Zion. August 12, info at cosmopolitanlasvegas.com.
