Dubbed the “City of Entertainment”, Las Vegas has no problem attracting big stars to play residencies in the opulent theaters and arenas that line the Strip.
With so many headliners coming and going, we figured it would be helpful to detail current and upcoming Las Vegas residencies so that you can find a headliner that fits both your tastes and travel timeline.
For our purposes, we chose to leave residencies that only last a few days off the list as they are unlikely to line up with your dates of travel. Do 3-5 performances really qualify as a residency anyway? We don’t think so.
