Greetings Vegas Fans!
Show, Shows, and More Shows. In 2003 Las Vegas, was a city in need of rescuing. After many years of non-stop prosperity, during which the number of visitors each year grew to a high of 35 million in 2000 from a low of 6.8 million in 1970, the people had stopped coming and Sin City needed something new.
Enter the new Era of Shows...
March 25 marked the 10th anniversary of the opening of The Coliseum, the 4,000-seat flagship theatre in Caesars Palace built especially for Celine Dion. It is on that stage that the Quebec native kick-started Vegas' turnaround, bringing the people back who had stopped coming after 9/11, but also because of the entertainment. Back then there was a growing sense among the city's movers and shakers that the entertainment scene had become "been there, done that." Vegas is known as much for its good entertainment as it's gambling. Tourists expect star-studded, spectacular shows.
In early 2003, there were only two Cirque du Soleil shows in operation. The biggest showroom act belonged to Siegfried and Roy. Now Vegas is packed with 5 star entertainment from one end of the strip all the way to down town. The Vegas Advantage Card puts you front and center to many of these shows with discounts up to 50% off.
