Given that Las Vegas is the Entertainment Capital of the World, it should come as no surprise that the Strip has several different types of music venues for audiences to see their favorite artists perform in.
Some of the world's top touring acts frequent some of the Strip's biggest stages throughout the year, like the MGM Grand Garden Arena and the Mandalay Bay Events Center. During the summer months, however, many artists perform poolside at more intimate venues like Mandalay Bay Beach and the Boulevard Pool, providing concert-goers with a truly unique experience.
Vegas lounges also offer audiences a more intimate venue to enjoy live music in, whether it be "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks (who currently has a Vegas residency at Napoleon's Lounge) or "Pianist to the Presidents" David Osbourne (who performs at Petrossian Bar). Probably the Strip's most memorable intimate concert experience, however, can be found inside The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Home to some of the world's top recording artists, including Celine Dion and Elton John, The Colosseum houses the Strip's most stunning musical productions–and no seat is more than 120 feet away from the stage!
So whether you want to see your favorite act with several thousand fans, or you just want to watch a music legend up close, the Las Vegas Strip has plenty of places for people to go to enjoy a show they won't soon forget. Here's our picks for the Strip's 10 best live music venues.
