Spotting Las Vegas Celebrities
Keep your eyes open for celebrities in Las Vegas
Is it easy to run in to Las Vegas celebrities? Absolutely! There are dozens of celebrities in Las Vegas so keep your camera ready at all times because it’s more than likely you’ll come face to face with one at some point.
Why are there so many celebrities in Las Vegas?
This is partly because Sin City’s close enough to LA to make it the perfect playground for stars who want to get away and let rip for a few days but it also provides them with a number of business opportunities so you’ll not just come across them in the casinos...
You’ll also see them performing in concerts and shows and hosting at clubs and openings. Las Vegas is literally teaming with stars from the Z list right up to the A list.
Meeting an A-lister
Take, for example, one of our trips to the City. We were lucky enough to meet Bette Midler – in the flesh. There was no planning involved. We were staying at
where the Divine Miss M was starring in ‘The Showgirl Must Go On' at the Colosseum.
Whilst wandering through the casino we saw a poster announcing Bette’s book signing for The Saga of Baby Divine scheduled for 10pm after her show. So we bought the book, queued up and met her – simple as that - and the atmosphere was electric. Where else could you expect to stumble upon such a legend you might ask? A once in a lifetime opportunity ... or so we thought.
Making a plan
What we realised on our return to the UK was that if Las Vegas celebrity sightings had been top of our Vegas agenda we could have planned to see someone different every night.
That week we were in Vegas celebrities from P Diddy, Leighton Meester and Usher Raymond were hosting at Clubs along the Strip; Justin Timberlake was spotted in the casinos; Eva Longoria Parker opened her new nightclub, Eve, in Crystals at
where just a few days later Kristin Cavallari from the Hills celebrated her birthday. Phew! And that’s just to name a few.
Not to mention the celebrities in Las Vegas starring in concerts and shows up and down the strip such as Kid Rock, Donny & Marie Osmond, Holly Madison, David Spade and many more.
How to find Las Vegas Celebrities
1. Have a look at the
current shows that are on
in Sin City. Many have meet and greet/ VIP packages available where you can meet the star of the show. Peepshow with Holly Madison is one such show with a meet and greet package.
2. And check out the websites of the nightclubs on the Strip for the dates you’ll be in Las Vegas. The clubs regularly have celebrities hosting or celebrating their birthdays.
3. Last of all keep your eyes open when you’re out and about for celebrities letting their hair down in the casinos, restaurants and clubs. You never know who’ll you’ll spot!
Mixing with the Stars
If, as the old saying goes, ‘We are the five people we associate with most and our income is an average of those five people,’ I say visit Vegas frequently and associate with the Stars. I don’t know about you but I’d be more than happy if my income was the average of Bette’s, Eva’s, Donny’s, Justin’s and Kid’s!
