The Greatest Show on The Planet
Have you ever wanted to see a Vegas show? If you’re nodding your head or saying ‘hell yes’ then you’re certainly not alone! A Vegas show is really the greatest show on earth, in fact visiting Vegas alone is a show in its own right!
This is a city that is man-made in the middle of nowhere, in an environment that is harsh and certainly should not work, yet it not only thrives but it booms! For that reason alone, you should know that anything that happens in Vegas is certainly not run of the mill.
Every single night there are many shows on offer, many of which are residencies which run at set times of the week; it’s always worthwhile however to check ahead of time if there is anything special going on whilst you’re visiting, because many big named stars often do one-off shows, jetting in for one night only.
What can you see?
The list is really quite lengthy, so let’s just highlight a few.
Cirque du Soleil? If you’ve always wanted to check out the acrobatics of this fantastic production then you have several shows to choose from on the Strip, including Michael Jackson One, and The Beatles Love. In terms of comedy, you’re really going to need to narrow it down, because there are more comedians on the Strip than anything else, including the quirky Carrot Top. Magic is on the up too, with Criss Angel and Penn & Teller, to name just a few.
If it’s music you’re after, Jennifer Lopez is currently doing a residency in Vegas, and in the past the likes of Brittney Spears, Celine Dion, and Rod Stewart have stayed for a lengthy time, wowing audiences every night.
Whatever you choose to see, it’s important to realise that getting tickets for a Vegas show can be a tricky business if you don’t know where to look. Never use a ticket tout on the streets, these are not going to give you an official ticket, and they’re basically going to rip you right off. The best course of action is to either head to the hotel Box Office and purchase your tickets direct, although doing this means you might miss out because the show is going to be either on the day or in a few days’ time, or head online to a reputable site, such as Best of Vegas, and shop around for deals, safe in the knowledge that the tickets you receive are totally official.
Roll up, roll up! It’s the greatest show on earth!
