Every year the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority releases a Visitor Profile of tourists traveling to Las Vegas for business and pleasure. There’s a lot of information in the report and it can be quite overwhelming. I like to remove certain sections to make it easier to digest. Today, we’ll look at shows and entertainment.
You have about a year to pay your respects to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The property will become Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in 2020.
This purchase isn’t exactly news. Virgin Hotels announced that they were looking to get into Las Vegas back in 2017. Speculation immediately circled around the Hard Rock being the target landing spot. That rumor became fact when Hard Rock was purchased in 2018 by Sir Richard Branson and a group of investors.
Las Vegas production shows are in chaos right now. Customer preferences are changing and shows of all sizes in Las Vegas are trying to keep up. Shows open and close with regularity so it isn’t much of a surprise that we haven’t seen a big new show lately. Well, that’s about to change.
Las Vegas pools are an attraction of their own. Mandalay Bay has a beach, MGM Grand has a lazy river, Caesars Palace has multiple pools for every occasion – including swim-up blackjack. The newest pool scene in Las Vegas is at Palms. This pool complex has a performance stage, DJ stage, 65-foot tall statue, and 39 cabanas – most with their own pool.
Wynn Las Vegas has a new website and has taken to booking new types of entertainment. Wynn has been dabbling in limited engagement concerts for a few years now. They have more than ever this year. Now they’re tackling the world of standup comedy with a slew of shows added recently.
Delano Las Vegas is one of the best hidden in plain sight secrets in Vegas. You may be familiar with the boutique hotel tower at Mandalay Bay that was once called “The Hotel.” Delano is also operated by MGM Resorts but is somewhat independent of Mandalay Bay.
Fans of The Hunger Games books and movies will be able to dive into a new exhibition at MGM Grand. The Hunger Games: The Exhibition opens in The District at MGM Grand this May. The new exhibition has plenty of features from The Hunger Games:
- a fully-immersive archery training experience
- new interactive installations
- set decoration
It’s Pool SZN in Las Vegas! It’s actually been pool season since the beginning of March at some properties despite the rain and cooler than normal temperatures. This blog post is geared towards the millions of Caesars Rewards (formerly Total Rewards) members that plan on visiting Las Vegas during pool season. Many Las Vegas visitors are loyal to one casino players club and tend to visit those properties more often than not.
Every summer the Fremont Street Experience offers free concerts from major recording artists. This year the theme is “One Louder.” While the name might invoke thoughts of hard rock music, the series this year has modern and hard rock along with pop and rap artists performing outside for free.
