Las Vegas, the original Sin City. One of North America’s biggest tourist attractions, the Nevada hotspot has long been famed for it’s casinos, bright lights, celebrity hotspots, luxury hotels and entertainment. Vegas has billed itself ‘The Entertainment Capital Of The World’ and it wouldn’t be able to live up to this ambitious nametag without some of the shows and performances that are put on every single night. From illusionists to tribute acts, circus performers to great comedy, there is a Las Vegas show for everyone.
Probably the biggest name currently headlining her own show in Vegas is the legendary Celine Dion.

Tickets for the Celine Dion Las Vegas show begin at $117 and bookings are being taken right up to January 2012.
Jan Rouven’s extraordinary Illusions, Las Vegas show is also proving to be a hot ticket on the Las Vegas show scene, with audiences witnessing some of the most dangerous stunts and illusions ever to be performed on stage. Set to a soundtrack of modern-day hits including Adele’s Rolling In The Deep and ET by Katy Perry, German-born Rouven engulfs his audience in a show full of mystery and imagination at the FAME Theatre. Tickets for the magical extravaganza begin at $49.99, plus taxes and Box Office fees.
The world-renowned Cirque du Soleil are currently residing at the MGM Grand with Ka, a spectacular show filled with martial arts, puppetry and the company’s signature gravity-defying stunts.

The soundtrack is evocative and dramatic, fitting perfectly with the choreography which even sees the twins fly over the heads of the audience. Tickets to see the iconic and legendary troop start at $198.
If tribute acts are more your thing, Legends In Concert, Las Vegas is the longest-running celebrity tribute show in town. The show is hosted by a Jay Leno impersonator and not only features singing and dancing but also a fantastically high-tech light show, featuring multimedia graphics and even a multi-level stage to ensure audiences are thoroughly entertained throughout.
