    Hey Everyone-

    Looking to get 8 Absinthe tickets for next friday night. I know tix4tonite sells them at a discounted rate, but you have to actually redeem the vouchers at Caesars. Is this cheaper than the $20 coupon you can get outside the CP box office? And one more question-when does the box office open (looking to get tickets in the AM), when do they start handing out the coupons and can you take as many of them as you would like (say for a party of 8 :rolleyes2: ) Thank You!

    When I checked before the discount tickets they hand out in front of the booth and the tickets from tixtonite were the same price. There was one diff, I stood in line for about 30 or 40 mins and when I got to the front at tixtonite they had just sold out for Absinthe, even though they told me they were available when I got in line.

    I would just get the tix in front of the tent, they will give you as many coupons as you like. The entire transaction will take you 5 mins tops.

    I had the same issue yesterday at tix4tonight, so we walked to chasers and bought tix, they only had single seats available bit when we got to the show we explained to the usher we would like if possible sit together and he made that possible very easily.

    Also like to add...... best show I have ever seen in Vegas!

    Consider getting the tickets early in the day. Absinthe's busiest nights are Fridays and Saturdays.

    I've seen Absinthe four times and each time they change some things up.

    Good advice. I would definitely buy them as early as you can for a Friday night show, it's a pretty small capacity place. FUN show :)

    How do these discounts compare to buying online in advance? Online you even have the option of seat selection as opposed to whatever is left over. Works out to approx $100 a seat

    I bought mine last October through Travelzoo, I don't know if they are still on there. I think it came to about $69 a ticket. If you order online there is a ticket code 20AMP to get $20 off. As far as seat selection there are only a few rows of seats, the stage is in the middle. There really aren't any bad seats. They do jam you in though.

    Hi Everyone-

    Actually called the concierge desk at Caesars and they sold me the discounted tix ($86) without any handling fees you see on ticketmaster! So worked out well...can't wait!

    Good stuff. Me and my buddy are going to hit it up Saturday night.

    What time does that tent open Saturday AM so I can walk over and buy the tickets?

    I believe she said the box office opens at noon.

    I want to see Absinthe when we are in town in March. I would like to save money on the tickets if possible but still want good seats. Are there any discount methods and or tips you could recommend?

    I looked at the Web site already. I will do further searches for discounters, but would like first hand experience if possible. Does 1/2 price tickets seel Absinthe?

    Appreciate any help.

    I'd be surprised if you could get them at the half price place (which usually isn't half price anyway). The venue is so small and the show is pretty popular. Best you can most likely do is the $20 off coupon given out by the box office. The Travelzoo offer and others I've seen on other sites are pretty much the same thing. Basically you can get $20 off the regular price. WORTH IT.

    I'm also wanting to take my wife on Saturday May 24 for the 8pm show. I see they have table seating on ticket master but you can only book the regular VIP seating. How do you get a table? And if you get table seating, does a waitress come by and take drink orders?

    I looked on travel zoo and I did not see the show available. Do they only sell the tix when they can discount them?

    I actually just got off the phone with the concierge at caesars. I just booked 2 tix, sec 3 row d seats 1and 2 for $86.90 a ticket. She said that's the concierge special and is basically the same price if you had the $20 coupon that you use the day of the show.

    I liked this option since I was able to choose our seats with her and got the end seats. Also didn't need to pay the surcharges that ticketmaster charges.

    The concierge number is 866-782-0655

    Can I ask - do you know if you'll get any Tier Credits or Rewards Credits for that purchase?

    On my next trip, I'm staying at Caesars for a couple of nights, then moving, and I want to go to the show on one of the nights I'm not staying there. I'd love to be able to charge the tix to my room for a show a few nights later.

    I was under the impression that the only connection was that Caesars rented out the space.

    I'm not sure about the tc's and rc's. She did ask if I had a tr card and I said yes but she never asked for the number. I paid for it with a credit card.

    Good Advice

    Thanks for the number I think I will just do it this way sounds easier and about the same price or less in the end. I hate paying that Ticketmaster surcharge.

    Going to Vegas in May and we want to see Absinthe for the first time. What is the best way to get discounted tickets for this show? Also what seating would you recommend?
