If you’re planning on coming to Las Vegas next year, you will have incredible entertainment options to choose from. As 2009 approaches its final months, the news regarding Sin City’s latest shows continues to roll in.
Earlier this year we learned the big news that Celine Dion would be returning to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. According to Canada’s sweetheart, she wanted to kick off 2010 right by returning to Las Vegas with a brand new show. She’s been hailed as the biggest draw since Frank Sinatra, and when Elton John performed at the famous Colosseum venue he reportedly referred to the hall as Celine’s Palace.
While Celine returns to her palace with her ballads, a country crooner is coming out of retirement to take his Stetson to the Wynn Las Vegas. Garth Brooks will be headlining his own show at The Wynn’s Encore Theatre. Considering Brooks hasn’t performed a major show in eight years, the official announcement generated a huge buzz amongst country music fans. He’s sold 128 million albums, second to The Beatles here in the U.S., so you can expect all of the 1,500 seats in the Encore to sell out quickly. Other performers getting their own resident show include the legendary Tony Bennett, who will be taking Barry Manilow’s place at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Let’s not forget Las Vegas always has the best of Cirque du Soleil’s performances. Along with smash hits like O, KA, and Zumanity, there will soon be an Elvis show put on by the amazing Cirque du Soleil team. The show will celebrate the life and music of Elvis and avoid the controversy that surrounded the later years of his life. While the show is unofficially titled "Elvis," an official title is expected to be announced later this year. We do know the show will take place at the ARIA Theatre in the ARIA Resort and Casino at the CityCenter, and it has been approved by the Presley family. Cirque du Soleil is using remastered Elvis hits instead of a live singer to make the performance spectacular. It’s sure to be another great hit from the Cirque du Soleil troupe.
There will be plenty to see and do in Las Vegas in the upcoming year, so make your Las Vegas show, Las Vegas hotel, and Las Vegas tour plans early.—Provided by BestofVegas.com
