Justin Bieber and Beyonce Among Best Shows to See in Las Vegas this Summer

For decades, Las Vegas has been the premier honeymoon and grown-up resort destination in the United States. The aura of this desert city has even earned it worldwide fame. Naturally, most people associate Vegas with high-stakes gambling and bright neon lights. However, that’s only half the story. The city is also a top destination for world-class entertainment, from concert tours to comedy to spectacular feats of magic and daring. Summer 2013 will be no different, with One Direction and Justin Bieber concerts among the headlining events. In short, the city in the desert is an oasis of fun and entertainment, with something for the whole family.
Chart-topping bands and performers have not really put on a complete tour until they do a show in Las Vegas. Among the great acts coming to the Strip this summer are Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Taylor Swift and the Rolling Stones. If you have a young lady in your group, then Bieber may be the ticket of choice. Be warned, though: Justin Bieber tickets for his show at the MGM Grand will likely sell out in minutes. Purchase tickets now to ensure great seats.
Some musicians have built careers out of playing Vegas. In previous generations, Liberace and Neil Diamond come to mind. Today, Cher and Celine Dion both put on regular shows in Sin City. Because it’s such a tourist mecca, it’s easy to pack the house with new faces every night. In fact, many people come to Vegas not for the gambling but for the chance to see their idols belting out hits on stage.
Unexpected artists, such as Blue Man Group, are also frequent visitors to the bigger venues in Las Vegas. The city prides itself on providing guests an opportunity to experience entertainment that can’t easily be seen anywhere else. Touring Broadway shows, such as “The Lion King” and “The Book of Mormon” also pass through Las Vegas during their coast-to-coast tours.
Music is only one facet of the entertainment industry in Vegas. Many of the more well-known casinos also play host to performances that are totally unique to the city. Cirque de Soleil is one of the best examples. Combining elements of the traditional circus with modern technical wizardry, Cirque de Soleil offers oohs and aahs for the entire family. Bring your childlike sense of wonder to the show because you’re going to need it.
Comedy and magic are nearly as popular in Las Vegas as music. From small, intimate settings to huge, staged performances, sleight-of-hand artists go “hand in hand” with the card-playing reputation of the city in the desert. Penn and Teller are among the better known magical acts, blending unexpected humor, witty (one-sided) banter and an unconventional approach to the craft of magic.
With so many one-of-a-kind entertainment options, it’s easy to see why Las Vegas is consistently one of the world’s leading tourist destinations. The casinos and resorts have figured out that providing attractions for the whole family is good for their bottom line. From music to shows to magic and comedy acts, Las Vegas has built an industry around making guests feel welcomed and entertained every minute of the day.
