Our Recommendations for Vegas Residencies to See

Can’t decide which tickets to buy? We don’t blame you. There are so many great options when it comes to seeing a Las Vegas residency from a top musician, and we’ve got a few recommendations to help out with any indecision.

A Diverse Group

If your group is struggling to come to a consensus on which residency to attend, and you won’t want to split everyone up, there are a few acts that should appeal across the board. Silk Sonic, John Legend and Aerosmith offer the kind of Vegas show experience that are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

Pop Fans

For those of you who can’t get enough to pop music, then there are some very obvious choices here. Katy Perry and Carrie Underwood perform spectacular, grandiose shows that will leave you with a sparkle in your eye. While Lady Gaga is considered the reigning Queen of Pop, her Vegas show is quite scaled back and won’t be the huge spectacle that you might be looking for.

A Quiet Night Out

If you’d like to have a nice, relaxing night at a more chilled out show, Michael Buble, Lady Gaga and Lionel Richie are the acts you’ll want to see. While they aren’t massively over-the-top, they are still incredibly entertaining with gorgeous performances from music’s biggest names.

Classic Rockers

Vegas residencies are often the only opportunity you’ll have to see some of the most legendary musical artists. So, if you and your group are partial to some classic rock, it would be well worth it to check out Santana or Van Morrison in Vegas this year.
