If there ever were a band built for the summer — it’s Sublime with Rome.
The band took the stage of the expansive outdoor venue, The Beach at Manadalay Bay, in the heart of Las Vegas on June 14. The band is currently touring their new record, Blessings, released on May 31 of this year.
While the unit started as a resurrection of the Sublime name, the band has spent the past decade carving out its own loyal fanbase — comprised of OG Sublime fans, and new fans who’ve gravitated to the new and sounds.
Joining the tour, and opening things up were SOJA — the Virgina-born reggae collective that have been consistently killing it since 1997 as a staple in the reggae, and jam scenes.
The venue is absolutely one of a kind. It’s basically constructed as a beachfront area — complete with sand and a massive pool — in the middle of the strip. Kind of the perfect setting for a Sublime show.
