Which are the best shows in
Las Vegas?

and how can you get tickets to them
(for the best prices?)

Which are the best shows in Las Vegas? Well, there are so many first rate shows from all different genres in Sin City that it really comes down to a matter of taste. Coveted tickets to a Celine Dion concert would make my sister’s year and be my husband’s worst nightmare!

What do you like? Are you looking for a show that you can take the whole family to? Do you want to watch something that’ll have you crying with laughter? Are you looking for something a little more adult? Are you busting to see a huge star like Elton John or Shania Twain?

We find it useful to sit down and decide on our objectives before we even begin to search for tickets. With as many as 100 shows on in Las Vegas at any one time having an idea of what you're looking for can really help cut down your searching time.

Best Shows in Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil Love

You may have heard Las Vegas referred to as the Entertainment Capital of the World? Well the phenomenal choice of shows are a huge part of why.

Vegas has and continues to play host to major acts such as Celine Dion, for whom the 4,000 seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace was built, comedians such as Joan Rivers and magicians such as Criss Angel.

We love watching shows but there’s only so many you can fit in to one trip. Luckily our friend Shaun Moggan loves Las Vegas shows too. Just recently he’s been along to see Absinthe, Penn and Teller, Carrot Top and Terry Fator. You can read our reviews in this section but if you've seen a show that you think other visitors really ought to read about please add your own review.

Should I book tickets to shows in Vegas before I travel or look for tickets when I arrive?

The best shows in Las Vegas sell out fast. If you’ve got your heart set on a particular show don’t risk missing out; book before you go.

BestofVegas has an excellent selection of tickets to the best shows in Las Vegas - and something we really like - they have video previews of the shows on their site so you can get a sneak peak of the shows before you commit to tickets.

Can I buy tickets on the Strip to the best shows in Las Vegas?

Absolutely. Tix4Tonight sells half price tickets to the current Las Vegas shows. You can’t miss their red and yellow booths which are dotted around Las Vegas at: Fashion Show Mall; Hawaiian Marketplace; In front of the Showcase Mall; Circus Circus; Four Queens, Downtown area; Bill’s Gamblin Casino; O’Shea’s Casino; and the Giant Coke Bottle at the Showcase Mall.

We’ve spent our time in the lines at the Tix4Tonight booths which open at 9.30am every day. I remember once queuing for what seemed like an age at the Showcase Mall booth for tickets to see Peepshow only to find out Holly Madison wasn’t performing that week... Anyway, what we discovered is that it’s best to get there up to an hour before the booths open to avoid being stuck in long lines. You can pay for the tickets with cash, credit cards and travellers’ cheques with photo ID.

They charge a $3-5 service charge so beforehand make sure you visit their website and download the $2 discount coupon.

Should I buy tickets to the current Las Vegas shows direct or from a broker?

If you buy your tickets for shows in Las Vegas Nevada through the hotel’s box office you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you’ve got genuine good seats. But you don’t need to buy direct to get good seats and to have that peace of mind as long as you’re sensible.

And if price is a concern it's worth shopping around. As well as BestofVegas other reputable sites you can purchase tickets from are Ticket Liquidator and Ticketmaster who also sell best tickets and VIP packages.

NEW FIND - Another great place to get tickets from which we've more recently discovered is David Saxe. They're the largest show production company in Vegas and own a number of the theatres which put on some of the best shows in Las Vegas. I guess this is why we didn't expect to get decent discounts directly from them but there you go. Check them out as you can often get up to 50% off tickets. Keep an eye on the site as we'll list the coupon codes to the shows here.

Is it possible to get tickets to a sold out Las Vegas show?

If you’re prepared to pay a bit more for your tickets then it is. Be cautious however and avoid ticket touts or scalpers. You don’t want to hand over your cash only to find the tickets aren’t genuine and that’s always a risk with this route.

Instead speak to the concierge in your hotel or use a reputable broker. VegasTickets is a reliable broker based in Vegas that's been operating for over 20 years.
