Other Shows, Las Vegas
When we were planning to go to Las Vegas, we wanted to see a show. We later found out that the 2 shows that we wanted to see almost cost the same as the room at the casino. We decided to see a bar show at our casino, the Luxor. It is a great way to see a professional band. The music was more suited for me than it was for my parents. But we all had a good time.
Dress Code: Casual at the Bar
You may have dinner and see the incomparable Gladys Knight in concert for only $60 per person.
Dine in style at The Flamingo Room, Peking Market or Alta Villa and then witness the talents of ten time Grammy winner Gladys Knight in the cozy Flamingo showroom.
There are a few shows which are best seen at night. Here is a list of the following shows, all of which I have a description and list of hours under my "Must See Activities" on my Las Vegas page.
~ The fountains at Bellagio
~ The Fremont Experience
~ The erupting volcano at the Mirage
Jubilee is touted as being like the original Las Vegas shows. That's why we went. I'll admit, I really wanted to see the feathers and shiny baubles. We were told it was a topless show before we went, and it was. It was the strangest topless show I have ever seen. The dancers looked like they didn't realize they weren't wearing anything on top. Bizarre.
There were feathers, which I loved. There was glitzy, shiny stuff, which I loved. However, the Samson and Delilah show was just weird and although it had huge fall-away sets, it just didn't look impressive. It looked thrown together. Same goes for the Titanic scene. Who knew there was a lingerie show right before it sank??
I liked the dance numbers, and the interim acts. The funniest part was seeing the reactions of the people in the audience. I felt bad for the dancers, they seemed to work really hard. The audience was NOT into it, however.
If you are going to go, buy the cheap seats, and definitely use the $5 off coupon in the Bally's/Paris book.
Dress Code: Anything goes. You can wear dress up stuff or casual. There are drinks available at a bar.

At a 7 p.m. show, you'll have more energy to enjoy the show.
At a 10 p.m. show, you can eat a leisurely dinner, but you
might be a bit tired when the show is over at midnight.
Make dinner reservations close to the theater and give yourself
at least two hours to eat. Don't be rushed.

Here is the new Desert Inn. I recently heard that they actually put on lightening and thunderstorm inside the shopping area, complete with rain. Although I believe the rain falls into a lake and not on the walkways. Sounds really neat. If I'd known about this before we went, we might have gone to check it out. Maybe next time.
