Things to do in Las Vegas, Nevada (NV): The Best Performances

August 24, 2021 Jana Sager

Whether you’re a high roller or a low-key lounger, Las Vegas has something to suit your vacation taste. Sample fare from top chefs and cornucopian buffets, try your luck at one of the world’s premier casinos, or take in a spectacular show. Just wandering the Strip is enough to get your heart pumping. Once you’ve had enough of the razzle-dazzle, wave hello to the toothy sea life at the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef, hike Red Rock Canyon, or visit the Neon Museum, where old signs take on new life.

Boyz II Men deliver a strong, soulful, and smooth performance that will engage you. I was surprised when the young lady seated in my row urged me to get up and move toward the stage. When we arrived, she and others were greeted with roses. I was enthralled by the energy and the up close and personal attention given to the audience. The concert highlights their versatility as artists and as top notch performers! Lots of love!!!

My husband and I love classic rock. We both grew up listening to it. This show brought back so many wonderful memories for us! We sat close to the stage and enjoyed being so close. We sang along with most of the songs! If you love classic rock, this show is a MUST!! Before we left the show, we were already talking about getting a group of friends together for a Vegas trip and seeing the show again!!!! Meeting everyone was awesome too. Not only did I get our program signed by everyone but we got to chat with them too!!

To be honest I didn’t have high expectations going in to the show and venue isn’t anything special, but I really enjoyed it. Great band and fun compere and “Elvis” really threw himself in to the show performing hit after hit and we were singing along and dancing at the end. Show started at 6 which was early for us but got us in a party mood for the rest of the evening. Highly recommended.and best show on our trip to Vegas.

I would give this show 6 stars if it were possible! His abilities are at a supreme level. It’s not your typical smoke and mirrors magic at all... He kept us captivated for the entire show! He really gets crowd participation going and is humble enough to stay after the show to meet and greet guests individually :) This show is perfection: entertaining, funny, and amazing all in one! Would definitely go again!

Wayne Newton: Up Close and Personal

Enjoy a magical evening with the legend, Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton. This show, unlike any he has ever done before is very intimate, as he engages with the audience by answering questions and shares stories from his life in Las Vegas. Newton sings crowd favorites, and plays an assortment of the many instruments he has perfected. Don't miss this show when in Las Vegas.

My group of close friends chose to attend this performance as part of a girl get away . We thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Wayne Newton’s story through his personal stories of his successful career complete with video clips, humor, and live singing as well as his performance on a variety of instruments. The small venue provided an intimacy you rarely enjoy with most concerts.

Saw The Bronx Wanderers show last night and what a show it is,right from the start these guys rock playing a great variety of songs telling their story of them coming about as a band while keeping the music flowing. You can tell by the way they play that they love what they do and aren’t just there to do a job ,if your thinking of seeing a show then definitely go and see The Bronx Wanderers
