Four-time Grammy Award winner k.d. lang will make a stop in Las Vegas on July 13 with her new band Siss Boom Bang for a performance in the Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
k.d. lang rose to fame in 1991 with her Grammy Award winning song Constant Craving, which saw multi-million sales and earned her critical acclaim, but it was Roy Orbison who gave lang a boost in her career when they recorded Orbison’s Crying as a duet.
