American rock band The Used is bringing its unique new tour to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas at The Linq for two shows at 8 p.m. on May 24 and 25, 2016.
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the band will be performing its albums “Self-Titled” and “In Love and Death” in their entirety on consecutive nights. The sets will also be supported by more of the band’s most requested hits. Vocalist Bert McCracken, bassist Jeph Howard, drummer Dan Whitesides and guitarist Justin Shekoski will bring Brooklyn Bowl to life.
In 2001, four teenagers from Utah created a band and released a collection of albums that shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock was the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.
Since forming in Orem, Utah, The Used have released 6 albums and 2 EPs – “The Used” (2002), “In Love and Death” (2004), “Lies for the Liars” (2007), “Shallow Believer” EP (2008), “Artwork” (2009), “Vulnerable” (2012), “The Ocean of the Sky” EP (2013), and “Imaginary Enemy” (2013).
The Used’s latest LP “Imaginary Enemy” put the band’s political frustrations and commitment to social change at its forefront and has opened up the platform for conversation among fans and critics alike. The album climbed high on the Independent, Tastemaker Albums, Hard Rock, Alternative, Digital Albums and Top Rock charts.
The band is also touring in support of its highly-anticipated “Live and Acoustic at The Palace,” the CD/DVD combination set for release on April 1, 2016. With every online ticket purchased for The Used at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, guests will receive one standard digital copy of the upcoming album.
