Las Vegas Pub Attempts Record For Longest Concert

An Irish pub on the Las Vegas Strip hopes to break a Guinness World Record by hosting 16 days of nearly nonstop live music.  The concert is set to begin Wednesday afternoon at the Ri Ra pub in The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay. Numerous bands are scheduled to fly in and keep the music going, including Irish musician Dave Browne and Liam Reilly of the Irish rock band Bagatelle. The artists will play nonstop with no more than a 25-second break between songs and a five-minute break between sets.

The current world record for longest concert by multiple artists is 15 days. Bands began playing at a Michigan cafe on March 19, 2011 and ended April 3 of that year.
