    In Vegas right now and for Thursday we are debating between absinthe or Rock of Ages. Any suggestions? Also where to sit for both shows would be great to hear.

    Absinthe is in a special tent with the stage in the center. All the seats are good. I saw Rock of Ages on Broadway and really enjoyed it. They are both great. All depends if you want a musical or wacky circus comedy.

    Completely different shows. Absinthe is great. You'll love it if you aren't too politically correct and if raunchy doesn't bother you. Every seat is good. You are packed in pretty tight though. Rock of Ages is also fun if you want to kick back and listen to some good music (assuming you like that type of music). .

    Both are great! Absinthe we've seen twice with different people, Rock of Ages saw last year & really enjoyed as well.

    If you are up for another, Raiding the Rock Vault is amazing.

    Another vote for Raiding the Rock Vault. Have seen it 4 times and it's excellent but if you only want to choose between the 2 you named I'd choose Absinthe.

    Absinthe is better than Rock of Ages.
    Others suggested Raiding the Rock Vault and I like that better than Rock of Ages but Absinthe is the most entertaining.

    Ended up seeing Absinthe and we really liked it. We had front row seats and were part of the show. We really liked the front row but if you don't want to be picked on I would recommend a little further back. It is probably one of our favorite shows we have seen. Thanks for all the help.

    Absinthe is my favorite show in Vegas....not a bad seat in the house and hilarious, entertaining show. Don't go if you're easily offended.

    QUESTION on Absinthe. Does it matter when you buy tickets and where? I was looking at a few archived things from a couple of years ago and people seemed to indicate it was open seating and you just had to get there early. But I looked at Ticketmaster and now it looks there is assigned seating. Also, is it better to get the tickets in advance on ticketmaster or just wait to the day of and either go to the box office or a discount window?

    Thoughts please!
