Gene Simmons of KISS wants the crowd to sing louder as the band begins their residency at The Joint on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014, in Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas.

While others are bundling up, Las Vegas is set for sunshine and clear skies this weekend. Get out and enjoy the warm weather with plenty to explore across the city.

Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:

    • “Wicked,” starring Emma Hunton as Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Chandra Lee Schwartz as Glinda, the Good, is at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts from Oct. 8-Nov. 9, 2014, in downtown Las Vegas.
