When it comes to entertainment, few destinations offer the variety of live show spectaculars like Las Vegas, NV. From Broadway style productions of The Lion King and the spectacular feats performed in Cirque Du Soleil to mystifying magic and the world's greatest singing performers, there is something for everyone.

One walk up and down the fabulous Vegas Strip and you'll find dozens of shows and live entertainment options at the never-ending list of amazing resort casinos.

Big night life. Big stars. Big times. Las Vegas has it all. There's never a shortage of top name entertainment ready to fill the Vegas venues. You'll find Cher, Garth Brooks, Donny & Marie Osmond, Sugarland and, of course, Wayne Newton. For those looking for a little more rock and roll, a quick glance at the coming attractions brings forth groups like AC/DC, Santana, George Thorogood and Bret Michaels.

Vegas is also known for its magic and there is plenty to be found. Long-time favourites like David Copperfield, Lance Burton, Penn & Teller and Criss Angel are always ready to display their mystifying acts and sleight of hand.

Looking to laugh out loud? Check out the Vegas comedy clubs where you can find the likes of Andrew Dice Clay, Carrot Top, Bill Bellamy, David Spade, George Lopez, Dennis Miller and George Wallace.

You'll also find Broadway at its best in Vegas with touring versions of The Lion King, Menopause the Musical, Jersey Boys, Phantom and more.

But Vegas may be best known for its gaudy and often bawdy variety shows. From the spectacular Blue Man Group and a number of Cirque Du Soleil shows to adult revues like Fantasy and Bite, there is a vast array of Vegas shows designed to captivate.

One place that is always full of entertainment options is Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. With a huge casino gaming area, live shows, a myriad of nightclubs and restaurants, the Miracle Mile shopping mall and more Planet Hollywood is always the place to see and be seen. And now there's a new Planet Hollywood resort option… the all new Planet Hollywood Towers by Westgate.

Planet Hollywood regularly hosts a number of shows and special events ranging from the annual Miss America Pageant to concerts and sporting events. There are also a variety of ongoing shows to never give you the opportunity to be bored.
