In honor of the Tony’s – the best shows in Las Vegas!

Written in US DESTINATIONS

The annual Tony’s Awards take place on June 10 in New York, so we thought we’d honor the moment with a look at the best shows… in Las Vegas. Las Vegas has a huge and proud history of big shows. They specialise in the grand entertainment style of show – so when you’re sick of the sound of whirring slot machines head for entertainment with a capital E – after settling into your cheap room from Cheap Rooms. Don’t worry, there are plenty of rooms for all budgets to choose from in Las Vegas.

Finding a hotel in Las Vegas is easy, after all, there are over 200 to choose from. You can stay close to the action on the Strip or stay in a golf-course oriented hotel.. Either way, the choices are excellent – just select the theme you’re after and go for it. Check Cheap Rooms for deals right now to get you there!

It’s hard to pick the best show – they’re all good. But for sheer unique entertainment, it’s hard to go past the Blue Man Group. They play at the Venetian and it’s a very simple show. Three men in head to tow blue who make music, jokes and sounds like no other show. They drum, they use different items as instruments, they run about madly. Part performance, part theater, the Blue Man Group is very different.

Some say that David Copperfield delivers the best magic show in the world. And in many ways, they’re right. Copperfield’s show is high entertainment with trick after mind-boggling trick. How does he walk through the impenetrable metal sheet? How does he climb into a box that appears to be shrinking as he manoeuvres? If you love magic, make sure you catch him at the MGM Grand in the Hollywood Theater.

Who is the man? Elton John is! The Rocket man none the less and he performs this and many others in the Million Dollar Piano show at The Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace. No one does ‘show’ like Elton. It’s an intimate setting to hear all of his good stuff – like ‘The Bitch is Back’, ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Goodbye yellow Brick Road’, ‘Your Song’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’. Just brilliant. A highlight is the incredible piano he uses which took Yamaha four years to build to Elton’s specifications and cost, well, you guessed it.

The Cirque Du Soleil people do a number of shows in Vegas and each is as good as the other. But, you’re in Vegas, so we suggest the Viva ELVIS show at the Viva ELVIS Theater on the Boulevard. There’s all the acrobatics you expect; all the tumbling, leaping and death-defying somersaults. But there’s also the music! The production features 77 cast members including nine musicians and four female singers. Songs include ‘Blue Suede Shoes’, ‘Love Me Tender’, Heartbreak Hotel’, ‘Don’t Be Cruel’, ‘Burning Love’, ‘Can’t Help falling In Love’, and many more. The creators spent 3,000 hours reviewing and recording Elvis’ albums, films, concert recordings, interviews and home movies to create a truly unique experience of Elvis’ sound.
