Casinos that are famous for Live Music

People visiting the top casinos in Las Vegas have long had the expectation that the likes of baccarat, blackjack and roulette will be just part of the entertainment on offer. These casinos are known throughout the world for the exclusive sports events and live concert appearance by major music stars, and this is just as big a part of their appeal as the gaming. One of the most notable examples of this is Caesar’s Palace, which contains the Colosseum venue, where singers like Celine Dion, Elton John and Rod Stewart are all frequent performers.

The Vegas casinos not only offer a range of games like those at but are able to attract music stars of this calibre because of the glamour of the place, the fact that they virtually guarantee sold-out audiences, and the chance to follow in the footsteps of legends like: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Elvis Presley, who all made notable concert appearances in Vegas casinos. The most recent star to make this leap is Britney Spears, who recently announced a residency at the Planet Hollywood Casino there and, judging by ticket sales, this seems likely to be another big success. This means that Vegas is still the number one place to go, if you want to mix your gambling with other forms of live entertainment, but it does have a challenger.

Nowadays it is not only casinos in Vegas that are featuring live music though, with Macau in particular, making this a feature. Just as this resort itself is something of a young upstart challenger to Vegas, so the stars playing there are also younger – with current chart stars Rihanna and Justin Bieber having played at the Venetian Macau’s Cotai Arena during their most recent world tours. You do not get much bigger stars in 2013 than these two, suggesting that Macau casinos are now seen as genuinely top-league concert venues, and this all makes for great entertainment for anyone considering a gambling holiday there or in Las Vegas.
