    Anyone have tips on how I might be able to catch some of the celebrities at MGM that night?

    most people line the hallway leading to the Grand Arena. Don't know how many celebrities will be entering that way, but that is your best chance.

    Many will be partying in the casinos/clubs afterwards. Those party rocker guys were all over the place last year. Also, its a pretty cool event to go to btw and really not very expensive fyi. Oh...the hallway between the signature and the grand with a moving walkway has lots of windows. You can see pretty much all of them through the windows there as well.

    Ok tell me where in the casino that is? I don't think I've ever been near the arena or maybe I just never noticed. Anyone know if Mumford and Sons will be there?

    How could I get tickets?

    It's the Studio Walk hallway with all the restaurants and food court (on the way to the pool)

    Bad seats aren't really bad from what I recall. We thought the show was pretty neat since you get to see a lot of performers all at once, as well as see how they prep the stages for the next act. I got my tickets from signature concierge at ~$100/ticket (if I remember correctly).
    The hallway is back past the food court. (on the left? lol) There will be a little door (I don't think you need a room key in the daytime to open it). That'll lead to the hallway with the windows.

    Last question, I promise (and thanks for all your help!)

    Show is at 5, what time should we be there? We plan to pick up our tickets at the box office the day before.

    There will be people with cameras to take pics of you before you go in (if you want to stop and do that). They will have a few to choose from when you come out to buy if you'd like. That was kinda fun. ...but to answer your question, i'd say your fine if your at the MGM 30 minutes early. If your late though, they will make you stand outside the entrance to your seat behind some black curtain until the next commercial break lol
