Las Vegas was built on the promise of "dinner and a show." Home to marquees once graced by the names Jimmy Durante, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr., the city remains a glittering entertainment hub. The performances get bigger and the stagecraft glitzier as more and more megawatt stars take up long-term residency. In 2014, visitors will be able to choose between musical talents such as Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Elton John. Those seeking a slightly more surreal aesthetic should opt for Cirque du Soleil, which is currently running eight shows along the Strip. If you’re forced to pick just one, we recommend "LOVE," a thrilling and epic tribute to the artistic evolution of The Beatles.
