Getting show tickets in Las Vegas

Post by the_klenzer » Wed May 06, 2009 6:31 pm

Hey guys, I'm a long time traveller to Las Vegas, but have never gone to see a show there yet. My GF is dragging me there (oh nooo) next weekend, and wants to see some shows (Cirque and a topless/burlesque show), does anyone have any suggestions/info on how/where to get decently priced tickets for any of the big hotel shows?

Thanks!

best Cirque show is "O" but for the money see Le Reve its almost as good... Dragone designed both just did "O" before he left Cirque. For Topless shows MGM Grand's Crazy Horse Paris is by far best, well zumanity but that's more than a topless show... Also check out "Freaks" at O’Sheas dive casino low production show but good people think one or two have even come to support squad events at least once I know of... Also the ZSC009 is hosting a ZOMBIE workshop on the 14th At Black label if your in town and shooting a short film on the 17th. Even if not involved feel free to stop by say hi!

Oh yeah and to buy them for big show's like "O" ur kind of SOL I worked for Maxim & Stuff magazine for a years and could get just about anything comp'd to me but not "O" tickets they need no help selling those even at over $100 a pop but most other shows wait till you get here hit up the half price ticket sales place next to the M&M, Coke place... you'll see it right across from Diablo's at Monte Carlo Casino south end of Strip right above gameworks...

Yeah, O seems to be the top show suggested by everyone... and at $180-$300 a ticket, that's impressive!

Thanks for the heads up on the 1/2 price ticket location... I totally know the M&M/Coke place, LOL. So, I'll book Cirque tickets online now and go there to see what I can pick up for a deal in person.

Thanks for the invite, but we don't get into town until late on the 15th, and will be driving to the Grand Canyon on the 17th... though I'm actually pretty interested in popping by to see you guys shooting (if it's a zombie short film of course :) ).

Might want to get friendly with your hotel's concierge. It's their job to hook guests up with various things.

yeah and "O" has been here for what over 10 years give or take and sells out almost every weekend insane to think about the millions that show pulls in but like is say "Le Reve" is almost as good and quit a bit cheaper. Don't know what time your heading to grand canyon on the 17th but you'll be driving right by (or close to it) where we're filming at. If you've got time swing by Nelsons Nevada (http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/nelson.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) we'll be shooting in the afternoon & hope to wrap by sundown.
