Live Performances in Las Vegas

Nowhere puts on a show quite like Las Vegas. This is where the world's top entertainers get to shine, so prepare to be dazzled!

Live entertainment has been a huge part of the Vegas experience since Elvis and Frank Sinatra took to the stage back in the swinging '60s. Today, the city puts on an eclectic selection of performances - all with plenty of that trademark razzle dazzle.

Bag yourself tickets to one of the Strip's hit shows; the hotels and casinos here host some big-name stars, as well as plenty of old-school Rat Pack tribute acts.

Las Vegas loves a good festival, so keep an eye out for events happening during your stay. Whether you're a music lover or a foodie, there's a festival to win you over.

Or why not explore Sin City's adult side with a cheeky burlesque show? You'll also find plenty of adults-only comedy and magic shows for some late-night fun.

Hit Shows
