Luke Bryan: Vegas

What do you get when a country music megastar takes up residency in the City of Lights? The answer is Luke Bryan: Vegas! The artist’s exclusive headlining tour spanned from November 30 to December 10, 2022, and the five-time CMA Entertainer of the Year winner is back in 2023 for more dates!

From February 1 to April 1, you can catch Bryan at the new Resorts World Theatre, where the show is sure to be spectacular. To really enjoy the experience, why not book a “Play It Again” VIP Package?

Piff the Magic Dragon

You might know Puff, but have you ever heard of Piff the Magic Dragon? Like many Las Vegas shows, this one artfully combines elements of both comedy and magic, leaving audiences absolutely spellbound. 

Namesake Piff is clad as a magician donning a dragon suit. Along with his trusty pet sidekick, a chihuahua named Mr. Piffles, Piff wows watchers with exciting tricks and surprises. As the tagline “fun for some of the family” suggests, this is one show best reserved for the older kids in your group. 

V – The Ultimate Variety Show

There’s no denying that some entertainment options in Vegas can be cost-prohibitive for most visitors. That isn’t the case with V – The Ultimate Variety Show. Held inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, this show features an impressive array of acrobatic stunts combined with magic acts and truly funny jokes that will keep you on your toes the entire time. 

Though some of the jokes can teeter on PG, this show is generally acceptable for all audiences. 

Wink World

Are you looking for something new and unique to do in Las Vegas? As you make your vacation plans, be sure to schedule a trip to Wink World!

Created by Chris Wink, one of the three original co-founders and Chief Creative Officer of Blue Man Group, Wink World: Portals Into the Infinite is best described as a cross between a psychedelic arthouse and a carnival funhouse. It’s eye-opening and mind-bending, with elements of light, color, sound, and motion that totally immerse anyone who enters. 

There are six timed rooms in Wink World, and each room is set to a different song. To create the soundtrack for his vision, Wink called on one of his frequent Blue Man Group collaborators, Chris Dyas, as well as several other talented musicians, including beatbox artist and throat singer J. Stone, composer and singer Lucy Weld, and composer violinist Sarah Charness.

Wink World is great for all ages and ideal for groups. The experience lasts around 20 minutes, and there are specially-created view portals for younger guests. 

Cirque Du Soleil

If you’re planning a Las Vegas trip, you know Cirque Du Soleil will be on the itinerary. Every show is specially adapted to the theater that hosts it, so you get a different experience with each one. In 2023, there will be six Cirque Du Soleil shows performed throughout the city.

  • Mad Apple: New York New York Hotel and Casino
  • KÀ: MGM Grand
  • Michael Jackson ONE: Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino
  • Mystère: Treasure Island

The acrobatics displayed at each show are exceptional, and the scenes are stunning. Take your pick, choose a seat, and sit back and enjoy. 

Vegas! The Show

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how Vegas got its start, then Vegas! The Show is a must-see. This highly entertaining musical, playing at the Saxe Theater inside Planet Hollywood, takes viewers through decades of the city’s rich entertainment history. Using gorgeous choreography, dancing, and singing, it brings Old Vegas to life. 

From the Rat Pack to Elvis, you’ll hear iconic songs you recognize, even if you didn’t know they first arose in Sin City. More than 40 artists are in the cast, and each brings something singular and special to the stage. Presented seven days a week, it’s appropriate for all ages. 

Tournament of Kings

While Vegas is knowns for its shows and nightlife, Tournament of Kings is a little different. Held in the Excalibur Arena at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino, the medieval-themed dinner show is a treat for the entire family. 

Kids and adults alike will love to watch the brave knights jousting in the arena, and as spectators, they even get to play an important role in the show! This act is pure fun and never takes itself too seriously. If you want a place to take the kids where you don’t have to worry about them being loud or making too much of a mess, this is always a solid pick.
