The Jim Irsay Collection is Coming to Las Vegas for One Day Only

On March 4, you can attend a free concert and event showcasing dozens of iconic pop culture artifacts.

by Las Vegas Bucket List

 

Football fans know Jim Irsay as the owner and CEO of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, but the midwestern businessman is also the owner of a vast treasure trove of American memorabilia. Jim Irsay’s passion for rock music, American history, and pop culture has led him to accumulate a compilation of culturally significant artifacts over several decades that make up The Jim Irsay Collection.

On March 4, the entire collection will be on display at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. For one night only, you can view some of the most iconic pieces of history—from guitars owned by legends like John Lennon to Muhammad Ali’s Heavyweight Champion Belt to an 1823 engraving of the Declaration of Independence.

The event will include musical performances by The Jim Irsay Band, Billy Gibbons, Vince Gill, Stephen Stills, and Ann Wilson, and is completely FREE to attend. Roam through the exhibits at your own pace, gawk at priceless artifacts from historical events and moments, and listen to music while doing it.

Reserve your spot here, and check out some of the can’t-miss items that will be on display below:
