Las Vegas shows

Our 1st visit to LV from the UK in May next year. Booked 3 nights at Vdara but wondered about booking shows prior to arrival. Will it be cheaper to do in LV on arrival?

Any other cost cutting tips would be much appreciated as recent reviews seem to be suggesting food and drink expensive.

Thanks Chris

There may be deals at tix4tonite booths, but time spent in line is not worth the savings to me. Google the name of the show and "discount". Try smartervegas. Absinthe is excellent and has discounts online and at he box office.

Buy supplies to make breakfast and cocktails in your room. Free drinks while gambling, but quite expensive at bars.

Earl of Sandwich For a quick meal.

Share an entree at a steakhouse, get two sides.

Happy hours.

MikeinFLL nails it. You can save money at Tix 4 Tonight, but it will take a time investment. I have used them one time, but I wouldn't do it again solely because of the time needed.

Can recommend 'O', been twice, booked before we went, don't think you can buy at Tix4tonight?

Going to see the Jersey boys next visit, Tues 12oct, we have booked.

Our friend with us last year, booked to see Elton John and Donny and Marie while in Vegas,

Food only expensive if you go fine dining, have a look on Yelp, give you an idea?

Do your homework and you will have a great time, have a look on Groupon Las Vegas, to early for you to buy yet, nearer the time, but only buy if you going to use your groupon.

If I can help you with anything else please feel free to PM me

Whether to book ahead of time or while there depends on the show. I've used Tix4Tonight a few times and didn't have to wait very long (maybe ten minutes). If I have a show that I want to be guaranteed to see, then I book ahead of time. Otherwise, I will try to get the tickets through Tix4Tonight.

To save money, I usually buy a copy of American Casino Guide and use some of the food coupons. As long as you aren't having to go out of your way to use them, they can work out well.

If there's a show you really want to see, I'd say book it ahead of time. It will be a little more expensive but your guaranteed to see the show you want and get the seats you want. Keep checking the shows to see if there any specials. I use www.vegas.com . Sometimes they have discounts on tickets or special dinner/show packages.

Personally, I prefer booking and paying for the shows ahead of time. That way, I know what money I have left available for food, gambling and souvenirs. By the way, there are plenty of restaurants in Vegas to meet everyones budget. Have fun!

It depends on what you want to see and how much research and effort you want to expend. I am going to the Shania Twain concert in 2 weeks. I wanted a good seat but not to spend a fortune. First I looked at the VIP mid-tier packages and determined a price and location. Then I went to the tickets web-site and found a comparable seat for a much lower price than the VIP package. The VIP package was approx. $350 and basically the same seat cost me $144. I saved over half. You just have to know what your looking for to get a good deal.
