The best show in town for fans of Elvis in Vegas is on at Harrah’s. Pete ‘Big Elvis’ Vallee performs most nights in the Piano Bar and he’s a brilliant impressionist of the man himself – from the clothes, the look and the style to the voice. And yes, it’s free – or the price of a drink anyway.

Who doesn’t love a circus? And one of the best circus’s in Vegas is at the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino at 2880 Las Vegas Boulevard. Different acts shake their stuff every half hour from 11 in the morning through until midnight every day. It’s the perfect tease to a big night out later on at Cirque du Soleil.

Billy Joel said it (sang it?) right when he said play us a song, you’re the Piano Man, you make us feel alright… You’ll find a pair of veteran ivory bangers doing duelling pianos in Las Vegas at the Piano Bar in the Paris Hotel.

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.

Not familiar with The Blue Man Group? Here’s what to expect:

Written in US DESTINATIONS

Yes, it’s that time of year again! Summer is almost here and the clocks take a giant leap forward into daylight savings time. So, what are you going to do with your extra hour? Well, Cheap Rooms has plenty of cheap hotels in Las Vegas, just in case you plan on using it for excitement!

Because that’s Vegas! Exciting, non-stop action, entertainment and frivolity. It’s time to shake off the doom and gloom of nominee blather, winter and the economy and get on down to Las Vegas. Getting flights to Las Vegas is easy – plenty of airlines service Las Vegas daily. And there’s plenty to fit in your extra hour of daylight with in Las Vegas and Cheap Rooms makes it easy for you to enjoy the very best that Las Vegas, Nevada has to offer!

Why not think of getting out and about in Las Vegas? Let your hair down in a supercar and climb aboard a supercar for a guided tour from the Strip out to the Hoover Dam and back. Jump between a Lamborghini or Ferrari and pretend you are the bossiest of bosses. Very cool.

Life is an adventure and even more so in Las Vegas. How about going sky high and tearing up your buddies in a Sky Combat tour. You’re in the cockpit and finding out what it feels like to be a real, live fighter pilot. See Las Vegas from the air and pretend you’re in a dogfight, race the skies and you’ll never come down from this trip, believe me. Aerobatic fun in the wide open spaces of Las Vegas is something you’ll remember for a long time.

If being a real life fighter pilot is just one step too far, why not try indoor skydiving – yes, indoors. Read, safe as houses. Well, maybe not houses. Essentially you strap yourself into a mighty big parachute suit and get blown up by an enormous draft of air. Perhaps don’t wear a skirt. It’s the closest you’ll get to skydiving with leaving the ground and is tremendous fun – especially for a large family group.

With all that extra daylight time, why not explore further afield? Bootleg Canyon is in the spectacular Mojave desert and one of the attractions is the zipline experience. Hook yourself up and go flying at speeds up to 60mph over the desert scenery. The outlook is great and getting there through desert country is half the fun. Don’t coop yourself up in as casino for your Vegas adventure, get out and enjoy something quite different!

Ziplining is fun!
