If traveling to New York City to see the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" just isn't in the cards this year, there's no better place to celebrate the holiday season than Las Vegas. The Entertainment Capital of the World hosts a variety of holiday-themed productions throughout the month of December, from festive acts passing through town to resident shows that get into the holiday spirit. Here's a look at three of the season's hottest tickets.
Grammy Award-winning R&B/pop group All-4-One returns to the Suncoast Hotel and Casino this weekend (Dec. 7 and 8), performing a mix of their hits and traditional holiday favorites. In addition to their chart-topping single "I Swear," ticket holders can expect to hear the group sing such festive numbers as "The First Noel," "Silent Night" and “This Christmas.” Tickets start at just $16 and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Call 702.636.7075.
"Legends in Concert"
Celebrating 30 years on the Vegas Strip, this long-running celebrity tribute show will spread some holiday cheer through Dec. 30 as its superstar tribute artists perform some of the hits that launched their celebrity characters into superstardom, as well as a few heartwarming holiday favorites — think Elvis Presley singing "Blue Christmas" and Madonna doing "Santa Baby." The holiday spectacular concludes nightly with a stunning tribute to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. "Legends in Concert" runs inside the Flamingo Saturday through Thursday at 4 p.m., with additional performances on select nights at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $50. Call 702.777.2782.
"Terry Fator: A Country Christmas"
One of Las Vegas' most popular headliners, singer/comedian/celebrity impressionist Terry Fator will transform his stage at the Mirage into his "living room" for his annual holiday show through Dec. 31. Fans of the "America's Got Talent" winner can look forward to hearing him sing original holiday tracks while his lovable puppets perform a mix of classic carols with a country twist. As a special gift to ticket holders, audiences will also get a sneak peek at Fator's newest cast addition, Kani Kapila, who will bring the spirit of the Islands to the festive show. "Terry Fator: A Country Christmas" runs Monday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $60. Call 702.792.7777.
