    I haven't seen any around there.

    Because they would have to sell the tickets on public property the closest they could get to the Colosseum would be in front of Mirage (the sidewalk area in front of Caesars is owned by Caesars, so doing it there they would be trespassing).

    You could always try Craigslist too

    (might have some...)

    There are usually tics available the night of the Show from
    unclaimed comps or WILL CALL if you really need to go.
    Just be prepared for any seat at any price and folks line up
    well before showtime for the chance to get one.

    One thing I do before dealing with TicketMaster is...I call the
    Colosseum box office first and find out if any of the seats I
    want are still available. THEN...I call TM and request where
    I want to sit. ALWAYS TALK TO A REAL PERSON AT TM.

    If you can't find a good floor seat, 1st MEZ 4,3,5 are probably
    you best bang for your buck, ROWS A or B.

    I prefer REAR ORCH, SEC 4,3,5, ROWS A-H.

    I wouldn't waste my money on SEC. 2 or 6 in either the Front
    or Rear Orch. Your view just isn't any good and if there's a video
    screen to view...you'll see a distorted picture...stay centered as
    much as possible in any section in the Colosseum.
