Only been to Vegas twice. Unfortunately both times...all name acts were either on vacation or touring. Next week doesn't seem to be any different. I've seen Elton... the other (former superstar), is Brittany. Has anyone seen her?
Was also wondering if anyone had any other recommendations. We've seen most of the broadway shows, (LionKing, Jerseyboys, Phantom etc)....but wanted to squeeze something in while we're here.
Tks
Mike

Since you like Broadway shows... The Book of Mormon is still in town. I saw The Book of Mormon last week and really enjoyed myself. It ends 10-18.

It might be hard to imagine but it's relevant to Vegas. The Old Mormon Fort is the oldest building in Vegas. Many early settlers were Mormon and we have a very high LDS population.

I have not seen Brittany but I'm sure she puts on a good show. I have friends who saw her show and they enjoyed it.

Do you like The Beatles music? If so you might want to go see LOVE. It's one of my favorite Vegas shows. I really love LOVE.

ShowStoppers at the Wynn is excellent. They have discount tickets at tix4tonight

We saw Britney Spears about a year ago, she was pretty good, but nothing to go out of your way for. If you can buy tickets at the casino or from Caesar's Entertainment group, you will save a bunch of money. The ticketmaster's website is a rip off. Same with JLo.

And if you are visual, and quick witted, Carrot Top is hilarious. He's a prop comic, and he works with three different trunks, pulling things out and quickly making a joke out of each thing.

Last time we were in Vegas we saw LeReve (The Dream) at the Wynn. It is a water Cirque type show (not by Cirque). We thought it was outstanding and would see it again.

You can't go wrong with any of the Cirque shows. They sometimes have cheaper tickets on their own website.

I've heard great things about Absinthe at Ceasar's Palace.

Well, we saw that and I don't know where to start on how to describe it. There is no other show in Vegas like it, maybe no other show in the USA. Read the reviews on Yelp for details. I found it a little crude and sometimes rude, but very entertaining. They had circus acts on a small stage that were very scary or dangerous. Between the acts, the MC tried to entertain the audience with jokes Or stories that were gross and discussing. But, some folks in Vegas find that funny and interesting. So beware and give it a try if it fits your interest.
