BE SURE TO CLICK THE PHOTO TO SEE THE TICKETS CLEARLY!
One of our top priorities was to see Donnie and Marie at the Flamingo. We tried for several days to see if we could obtain less expensive tickets; however, we finally decided to buy the tickets right there at the Flamingo [which was a good idea because there were no extra fees.]
The showroom is perfect for their act. All the seats seem to be pretty good, and the platforms let Donnie and Marie [especially Donnie] walk out into the audience to actually touch their fans.
Donnie and Marie's engagement at the Flamingo started in September where they signed a two-year to perform here.
This is a family friendly variety show which includes dancing, singing, and humor. We sat in great seats at a table with 3 other couples. Visibility was excellent.
The Sibling rivalry plays throughout the show and draws much laughter. I liked the fact that each sibling had the opportunity to perform solo as well as a duet.
Marie goes first and is spotlighted as she sings one of her most popular songs, Paper Roses" which she made famous when she was just 13 years old! I was quite impressed with Marie's voice and her wide range of popular, country, Broadway hits, and opera.
She also does a funny portion by using bald men out of the audience, bringing one embarrassed man up on the stage to sing [I say that loosely] and dance with her. It's hysterical!
Next, we are entertained by the ever upbeat Donnie when he appears out of smoking fog while singing his rock 'n' roll hit from 1989 called, "Soldier of Love".
He has a brief "love fest" singing songs by his hero, Stevie Wonder. Marie may have a strong voice, but it is quite evident that Donnie has the strong dance moves!
Seeing his pictures and videos as a teen-age "heart throb" was a delight. Lots of "oohs and aahs"are heard when he sings "Puppy Love" and "Go Away Little Girl". It brought back memories of playing with my daughter Jill with her Donnie and Marie dolls!
After the solo portions, the sister and brother reunite on stag to sing some of their hits such as "Make the World Go Away". They are both so good looking and appear much younger than they actually are. Marie's recent weight loss is quite evident. One of the most tender moments came in the beginning when Marie dedicated her song to her children, especially the boy who committed suicide. She had tears, and her voice cracked. It was so sad.
This is a nostalgic show that leaves the audience remembering their own yesterdays. We surely enjoyed it and felt that it was worth ever penny of our $124.00 each tickets!
Dress Code: The dress code is not too strict; however, jeans or cutoffs or baseball caps are not appropriate. We wore nice tops and dress slacks.
Vegas is known for, among other things, the shows put on in the hotels. There are live performances by famous singers and comedians, variety and impersonation shows, acrobatics and dance such as Cirque du Soleil's O and other more "adult" themed performances. But seeing a show is part of the true Vegas experience.
The best part of our visit to Las Vegas the last time we were there was to bring our children to watch the Cirque de Soleil (Mystere) at the Treasure Island. Although the tickets were expensive ($65.00 per person and there were 8 of us), the experience was memorable.
We truly enjoyed the show. Every minute of the show was truly amazing and exciting. The acrobats were world-class performers. The stage presentation was splendid. The outfits were exceptional.
The soundtracks were excellent!
My children didn't stop talking about it later. Even my young girl enjoyed the show and behaved the whole time we were watching the performance.
I will love to go back and watch all the shows of the Cirque de Soleil again - whether the Zumanity or the Mystere.
Dress Code: There is no dress code
Las Vegas is full of entertainment activities to anyones taste....If you want a good discount for your show there is an office on the strip marked by a giant Coca Cola Bottle.....and you will get 25% discount for the show....the only snag is that you have to line up in the quey after 2.00pm at the same day of the show.....
Dress Code: The dress for shows is smart casual.
almost every casino hotel on the strip offers shows and revues. since there are so many to choose from you need to check the hotel and casino websites for dates and times. some more popular shows in las vegas is cirque du soleil and the blue man group. many of the hotels headline top name singers and comedians. las vegas is also famous for it's topless revues. pictured is an ad for barry manilow who has performing at the hilton the last time i was in las vegas. be fore warned, many las vegas shows are very expensive
Dress Code: business casual.
Try the 2 for 1 ticket offices in Las Vegas. One is at the Coca Cola store at mid strip. Also, you will find one on Fremont downtown. I got 2 for 1 tickets for Folies Bergere at the Tropicana, and Riviera's Crazy Girls.
Dress Code: As far as I could see, there are no dress codes to the shows there. Just the nightclubs.
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.
If you like men with awesome bodies who dance and put on a show, this is the place for you. They involve the audience in the show. They come and dance on your tables. The closer you are to the front the more likely you will be pulled up on stage to 'help' them with their dancing.
It's classy fun!
Dress Code: Dress to impress! There isn't any listed dress code.
This show at the Golden Nugget was enjoyable. Professional dance couples from around the world perform various types of ballroom dance. They even have a little mini competition amongst themselves. Guests at the hotel can get discounted tickets.
Scott Carrot Top Thompson is a prop comedian. He has a bagful of tricks. Unlike most comics who just tell jokes, Carrot Top shows them to you.
When you get a load of his trunks filled with visual prop gags (most of which were invented and built by the comedian himself), you'll understand why. A grandfather clock necklace, a pay phone with a rolodex glued to it (which he calls a "cell phone for rednecks"), and a paper cup and string phone with a third cup attached for "call waiting" are just a few examples of the more than 70 props pulled from 11 trunks that Carrot Top features in every performance.
Now if this is your type of comedy then you'll love the show. If it's not your type of comedian and you managed to get a free ticket to the show (like I did) then you have only wasted time and not money!
Le Reve is by far one of the most interesting, breath taking shows I have ever seen.
There isn't a bad seat in the house. The seats circle the stage so everyone can see, but I highly suggest the "Champange V.I.P." tickets!
Each couple is served a bottle of Perrier Jouet with chocolat dipped strawberries, your hostess will refill your glass and even bring a small bottle of water about half way though the show. The seats are large, plush and on the same level that the audience enters on... meaning everyone else sits beneath you. Also included is a monitor that allows you see back and under the stage.
Dress Code: The Wynn is pretty swanky but I don't remember seeing a dress code. BUT considering the ticket prices start at $139.00, I can't imagine why you want to wear sweat pants!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Donn Arden's Jubilee and with more than 100 performers, 50 of them topless girls, Jubilee is the classic Vegas show.
This was one of the first shows I saw in Vegas (2001) and it was highly enjoyable. The costumes by Bob Mackie are spectacular and the dancers great. If you have never seen a proper Vegas show with topless showgirls this is the one to see.
Tickets range from $48.00 to $110.00 plus tax.
Dress Code: Smart casual to dressy.
ZUMANITY ™ is a show for lovers, would-be lovers, and anyone whose imagination has ever been sparked by the idea of love. The international cast, consisting of 50 eclectic and flirtatious performers and musicians, will reach out to take the audience on a 90-minute encounter, awakening most primal urges to a new form of eroticism blending movement, style, acrobatics, uninhibited costumes and beautiful bodies with the sensual caress of the human voice and insistent pulse of exotic rhythms. (taken from NY NY web page)
**Attendees of the show must be 18 years of age or older**
Dress Code: Its an evening show, however we saw everything in dress from jeans and sneakers to formal attire.
Jubilee is the longest running showgirl show in Las Vegas. We had seats on the front row. It was a great show, over the top and pure Vegas. Afterwards, we actually had feathers from the showgirls outfits on our table. I kept one for my scrapbook! Although we didn't do it, you can pay to take the backstage tour of the theatre. Since I work in a theatre, it just sounded like work.
It is a topless show, so children are not allowed in. Drink service was slow and we ended up heading to the bar ourselves.
The costumes and headpieces were so ornate, and that's the lasting memory I have of Jubilee.
Dress Code: We saw all sorts of clothes, but most people were dressed for a nice evening out on the town.
