    My BF and I are going to Vegas next month and I'm just wondering where the best place to buy tickets would be? Should we buy them online in advance (off which site?), or wait until we get there and buy them from tix4tonight?

    Thanks!

    I would buy them in advance. Use the link on the caesars shows page.

    Avoid Tix4tonite for the premier shows. You save a bit but get a voucher then have to get to the venue in advance of the show for your tickets. Sometimes I've been lucky and gotten decent seats but more often they've been on the sides and awful and I'd wished that I had paid full price for a better seat.

    The Caesars website as suggested is your best choice.

    I swear by tix4tonight. I saved $40 per ticket to jersey boys during my last trip. Saving $160 for my whole party seemed worth the 10 minutes I waited at will-call.

    First things first. Has anyone ever seen EJ tickets at tix4tonight ever? It wouldn't surprise me if they were never discounted.

    The big ticket shows are less available at a discount. Maybe you will hit a slow date and they will have them.

    Personally, I would buy direct from Caesars online.

    If you are staying with CET you can call and hold them with your reservation number then pick them up before the show.

    I've never seen Elton at a discount place, get them ahead of time.

    And there isn't a bad seat in the place, we saw him from the top balcony and you can see it all.

    The last song he plays is the tune from the Lion King, if you wanna avoid the stampede at the end, take off when that stars.

    My wife purchased tickets through his fan club once and we didn't know till we picked them up at the box office where our seats were and what a great surprise. 5th row directly in front of where the piano was on stage and then our entire row was invited up on stage and we stood around the piano while he performed " Saturday ". We were the first on stage and stood next to the bench he sat on while performing. Incredible rush and unforgettable experience.
