Las Vegas Show Tickets Tips
The key to getting discount show tickets in Las Vegas is planning ahead. You are most likely going to find deals if you purchase your tickets online before you get to Vegas.
Remember all Vegas shows are not created equal. The laws of supply and demand also applies to Vegas show tickets, so don’t expect to get half-price discounts on big headliners or popular Cirque Du Soleil shows like ‘O’ or Mystere.
Another way to book tickets to the major shows or visiting headlines is to call the venue or hotel directly on their toll free number or make reservations at a hotel that has a show. Such hotels usually have packages for their guests. Remember to ask when you are making your reservation. Ticket prices can vary and range in price from $30 – $200 per ticket. That will include tickets to the show, and may also include drinks, a free program and even dinner.
Find out if the hotel you are staying in can offer tickets to shows at other venues. Associated hotels can offer tickets to shows at their sister hotels at special rates. This is usually only offered to guests. For example, here are the two major casino chains in Las Vegas with their associated hotels, Caesar’s Entertainment, Inc. and MGM Resorts International.
Try to see the show you are interested in during the week. Tickets for popular shows are harder to come by on the weekends since they usually sell out quickly.
Remember that limited engagement shows cost several times more than permanent shows. Keep this in mind when you are choosing a show.
Check in advance if there is preassigned seating. If there isn’t, you can improve your chances of getting a good seat by tipping the maitre d’.
Always make reservations in advance or pay for your ticket online before your trip. Popular shows like Le Reve or Cirque Du Soleil ‘O’, you can book up to 90 days in advance. It’s also possible to get same day tickets at the Box Office by standing in line for an hour or so, but that’s taking a chance on a show you really want to see and also be ready to pay premium prices for that ticket.
Other events in the city can also affect the availability of show tickets if you wait till the last minute. When there is a major conventions in Las Vegas, tickets sell out fast during those times.
