When it comes to entertainment, Las Vegas is arguably the epicenter of the world. On any given day there are dozens of shows, celebrity acts, big-name productions and concerts playing at evening and afternoon venues.

And the best part — Las Vegas show standards make the value of a dollar super high in the entertainment business. That means in Vegas, you’re seeing the very best of a production for not as much money as you’d pay elsewhere.

Show categories include: celebrity headliners, like David Copperfield or Jay Leno; long-term engagements, like Celine Dion at Caesars Palace and Barry Manilow at the Las Vegas Hilton; Broadway and off-Broadway shows like “Phantom of the Opera” and “Blue Man Group;” production shows, which consist of Broadway-like musicals and theatrical productions; impersonator shows, which are long-term productions featuring performances by well-known living and dead celebrities (i.e. Marilyn Monroe, Cher); stand-up comedy acts and swanky lounge entertainment.

Most shows are hosted by giant hotel-casinos and have set schedules. It’s not required, but most people will dress up to go see a show in Las Vegas.

Show Tickets

The most economical way to see a show is by purchasing tickets for mezzanine seats instead of box or orchestra seats. Visitors can also find a good deal at Tickets2Nite, a half-price ticket outlet in the Showcase Mall, just north of MGM Grand.

A free Las Vegas “Showguide” can be found at or by contacting the Las Vegas Convention Center and Visitors Authority Information Center at 877 (847-4858). Get your tickets in advance, because many big-name shows sell out or may be dark on the days you’re in town.

From singing, dancing, and acrobats to plays, operas and comedy acts, Las Vegas has earned its self-proclaimed title of “Entertainment Capital of the World.”
