May 20th Week-No Headliners

Does anyone know what's up with the May 20th week in Vegas? It seems that almost every major headliner is taking a break that week! Is it just a fluke that the big names are out of town that week or does this happen every year at this time?

Which big names are you looking for? I see Elton John is in town. Which ones are taking a break? I see Terry Fator, Santana, and Human Nature.

You should take your own "advice" I don't see where you answered the OP's question in your little rant either.

Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5 + many more that week------

Tiesto is just a fancy DJ. None of the above are what id call headliners, in fact ive never heard of 2 of them and im 1 that likes his music/concerts.

I would definitely consider the Billboard Music Awards show on May 20 a headliner. There will be performances and appearances by top acts from the last year. I think I would rather see a collection of top acts rather than just one.

Also, I don't know how long you're in town, but Van Halen is at MGM Memorial day weekend. I think that would be a great show.

I disagree that Deadmau5 is not a head liner. Just because he prefoms in a club, does not make him anyless a star to his fans (like me) and getting in to his show will be harder than any of the others listed.

I answer the question, plenty to do that weekend.
