There’s no better way to get up close to Big Blue than a boat or jet ski rental. Showing is better than telling, and seeing IS believing. The grandeur of Lake Tahoe is easier to comprehend when you’re smack-dab-in-the-middle, trust us.

The Outlaws at Bally’s Lake Tahoe

Southern rockers, The Outlaws, are coming to Bally’s Lake Tahoe Sunday, May 28th. For The Outlaws, it’s always been about the music. For more than 40 years, the Southern Rock legends celebrated triumphs and endured tragedies to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Today, The Outlaws have returned with new music, new focus, and an uncompromising new mission: It’s about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony, and the road. It’s about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by it’s past. But most of all, it’s about pride.

It’s About Pride was also the title of the band’s acclaimed 2012 album, universally hailed as their victorious comeback. “Because The Outlaws had been out of the public eye for so long, it was almost like starting over,” explains founding singer / songwriter / guitarist Henry Paul. “But because of the band’s history, we dig deeper, write better, perform stronger. Everything we do is to reinforce the notion that The Outlaws still matter, and that Southern Rock will always matter. It’s a message we’re proud to bring into the 21st century.”

Age 6 and up. Minors must be accompanied by Adult 21+.
