Tickets are in High Demand

The demand for tickets in Vegas is high all year around, leaving many shows and events sold out well in advance. Waiting to get tickets until arriving in the city will mean disappointment for those wishing to see a specific event or performer. Tickets have to be purchased in advance to ensure entrance. This not only applies to shows, it also applies to VIP passes into the more famous nightclubs.

A famous club, like Tao for example, requires a VIP pass to enjoy some of the spectacular private booth spaces, views of the skyline, and other special features. Those without a pass will spend one or two hours in line and still may not get past the front door. Not many tourists are aware of that fact.
