In the review below we recommend shows that rank as some of the Best Entertainment  in Las Vegas.

The larger Las Vegas casinos offer some fabulous shows that are very popular with visitors. If you hope to see one or more of these delightful extravaganzas during your visit, reserve them as far in advance as possible. The most popular shows are booked weeks in advance and if a “hot” performer is appearing, you need to book the show and a room when the "news" breaks  or lose out.

Shows in Las Vegas are expensive - the better shows run a hundred dollars or more for good seats. If you gamble, a lot, you may be able to get free tickets for major shows (a process called comping).  If not, the shows are usually extravaganzas and you will be glad that you saw one.

All of the larger shows have one or two “dark” days per week when performances are not scheduled, allowing the cast time to recuperate and re-energize. Unfortunately, the timing of the “dark” days seems to vary between casinos, so if you are planning on seeing a specific show, make sure that it will be on during your visit – in other words check on the availability of shows as part of your initial planning process.

Many of the shows at the smaller casinos, particularly the showgirl types of reviews, are not heavily booked and you can reserve tickets for these quite easily. The same is true of the shows for many of the entertainers, who are having a “retirement” career at the less popular casinos in Las Vegas.

Before we get to the headliners, you should know that most major casino have a bar/nightclub area where you can listen to great performers for the price of a drink, or if you do not feel like drinking, most of the stages are an open platform and you can hear the show anywhere in the immediate vicinity.  We recommend the Big Apple Bar at New York, New York, which has an impressive soundstage and top-notch performers. If you like a little more intimate setting, the Bar at Times Square at NY, NY features a dueling piano show that is great fun.  Finally, the La Scena Lounge on the Casino level at the Venetian usually rocks.

If you are thinking about walking to your evening performance, use our map of casino-resorts to locate the casino hosting the show.

Finally, we have provided the complete internet link to most shows, since Las Vegas hotels seem to change their web addresses faster than a speeding bullet.  If the URL we provide, does not work, just shorten it to find you way to the hotel's website.
