Top 10 things to do in Las Vegas this week

MUSIC

Swedish House Mafia

“Don’t You Worry Child,” the Swedish House Mafia is back. The superstar progressive house trio of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso are touring once more after a hiatus from 2012 to ’18. Though the group helped take EDM to the mainstream in the 2010s via arms-in-the-air anthems like the aforementioned hit single, it just got around to dropping its debut studio album, “Paradise Again,” this year. Spoiler alert: Its sound is as outsize as the arenas the group is currently headlining. See the Swedish House Mafia at 8 p.m. Friday at T-Mobile Arena. Tickets start at $23; axs.com.

COMEDY

Nikki Glaser

Audiences laugh so hard at Nikki Glaser in part because she laughs so hard at herself. As frank, forthcoming and funny as stand-ups come these days, Glaser uses her insecurities to make broader points about societal stereotypes regarding feminine beauty and what it means to be a woman. Yeah, she’s pretty — pretty smart. See her at 8 p.m. Friday at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets start at $49; axs.com.

MOVIE

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

Spider-Man is swinging back into theaters this weekend. It’s not a new movie — not entirely anyway — but there’s roughly 15 minutes of new footage in what’s being called “Spider-Man: No Way Home, The More Fun Stuff Version.” It’s available only in theaters.

THEATER

‘Jagged Little Pill’

Is it ironic? We’re not entirely sure. But there’s a pretty good chance Alanis Morissette isn’t certain either. “Jagged Little Pill,” the jukebox musical based on Morissette’s breakthrough 1995 disc that remains one of the biggest-selling albums of all time, is the next entry in the Broadway Las Vegas Series. See it at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sept. 11, with additional shows at 2 p.m. Sept. 10 and 11, in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center. Tickets start at $30; thesmithcenter.com.

MUSIC

Ben Platt

You probably know Ben Platt best for his titular role in the Broadway hit “Dear Evan Hansen” and its less-than-a-hit movie adaptation — he captured a Grammy, an Emmy and a Tony for the former. But he’s also dropped a couple of emotive pop albums, including last year’s “Reverie,” which lives up to its name. See him at 8 p.m. Thursday at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets start at $49; axs.com.

FILE - In this Monday, Nov. 2, 1987 file photo, Britain's Diana, the Princess of Wales, is pictured during an evening reception given by the West German President Richard von Weizsacker in honour of the British Royal guests in the Godesberg Redoute in Bonn, Germany. For someone who began her life in the spotlight as “Shy Di,” Princess Diana became an unlikely, revolutionary during her years in the House of Windsor. She helped modernize the monarchy by making it more personal, changing the way the royal family related to people. By interacting more intimately with the public -- kneeling to the level of children, sitting on edge of a patient’s hospital bed, writing personal notes to her fans -- she set an example that has been followed by other royals as the monarchy worked to become more human and remain relevant in the 21st century.
