Best Las Vegas Shows in 2017

posted by Chris Valentine


Las Vegas truly is a city that never sleeps, and that has something for everyone.  In addition to its famed casinos and wedding chapels, Vegas has become especially famous for its shows – from comedy to music to boxing to Elvis, there is something for everyone to enjoy in this glittering city in the desert.  Here are some of our top pics for 2017 – be sure to get your tickets in advance from bestofvegas.com to avoid disappointment!

Cirque du Soleil

Fans of Cirque du Soleil will have the difficult decision of choosing between the several different shows that the world-famous circus is perfoming in 2017.  Most of the shows are family-friendly, but there are a few adults-only options this year, including the erotic exploration of the human body in the Zumanity show.  For tribute shows don´t miss the Cirque du Soleil’s tribute to the Fab 4 in The Beatles Love, or to Michael Jackson in the ONE Show.


In addition to the Cirque’s Zumanity, there are a few other options for those looking for some naughty fun in Vegas.  The Chippendale men perform a daily dance show that is perhaps less about the skill of the dancing and more about the appeal of the dancers.  If that performance leaves you wanting more, you can also take in a show by the men of Thunder From Down Under.  These Australian dancers are a bit more risque than the Chippendales, and make for great entertainment for a bachelorette party.  There are plenty of other burlesque shows if male dancers are not what you have in mind!


Vegas has some incredible headline performances by the world’s top artists in 2017.  Some, like Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart and Cher, have extended schedules of weeks or months in 2017.  Others have shorter engagements of just days, including Mariah Carey, Bon Jovi, Diana Ross, Santana an Ariana Grande.

Magic Shows

If you like a good magic show, then 2017 has a lot to offer.  This year’s schedule includes David Copperfield and Chris Angel, both of who are known for their mindblowing performances.  In the magic comedy genre, don’t miss performances by Penn and Teller, Mac King and Nathan Burton.


Vegas is famous for its high-energy musical shows combining dance, music, drama and comedy into one incredible performance.  In 2017, keep an eye out for Rock of Ages, Baz Star Crossed Love, and of course Vegas the Show.  And don’t miss the chance to see the Blue Man Group perform their unique blend of theatre, art and percussion.

As you can see, Vegas is much more than casinos and wedding chapels!  Be sure to plan your trip to Vegas in advance so that you can be sure to find tickets to these and other great shows on the schedule for 2017.
