    Last year was the first year I didn't go in December...I always have.
    I'm not going this year either...there's just not much going on in the way of
    Shows for me. Some of the top tier Shows are still on Holidaze Hiatus although
    many now start taking vacations in November, then back for December and
    everyone's back for New Years.

    The main thing I've always enjoyed about December is the 'special holiday' Shows
    that happen only at this time. Big celebs and their Christmas Shows have been
    pretty neat but lately...they just haven't been around, so I don't go.

    I suggest keeping an eye on a couple websites to spot special Shows during your visit.
    www.lvol.com
    www.searchlasvegasshows.com

    My opinion on the ones you've mentioned....
    X BURLESQUE maybe. I saw it when it first opened at the Aladdin and it was new, fresh and different.
    Now it may be the same as the other topless jiggle Shows in town but I have heard good things about it.
    FANTASY is my favorite of this type of Show. (check out Carrot Top before FANTASY...)

    GEORGE WALLACE 'can' be lots of fun. Just depends on what he's talking about that night...sit front/center.

    AUSTRALIAN BEE GEES I've seen twice and have given up on them this second time. They just don't seem
    to try very hard in their Show. It's ho hum...good harmonies, but not emotion. Small room, no need for VIP tics.
    It's like a glorified lounge Show (to me...)

    Haven't seen DANCING QUEEN, heard mixed reports.

    If you're into the 'Dice Man' go for it. Not my thing, and reports are mixed...same ol' same ol'.

    I will be seeing iCANDY next Wednesday...check back on that one.

    Don't know JOHN WATERS...film maker/actor/?...not a clue.

    It's still a bit early for any 'special' holiday Shows to be announced, ya just have to stay on top of it.
    They can pop up over night...December is a goofy month in Vegas.

    Thanks for some ideas for shows. I enjoy seeing a big show and some less known ones but last year was a last minute deal and kind of a hurried trip. This year, I want to see a couple at least.

    Greg, I thought you knew everything. :) John Waters is a cult filmmaker. He is responsible from the burn on my eyes from Pink Flamingos. I also hold him responsible for John Travolta in drag in the remake of Hairspray.

    I have no idea what to expect from his Christmas Show either, but it sounds wonderful for a weirdo like me. :wink2:

    That's not fair. You should really only hold him responsible for Divine :ssst:
