    We want to go to the rodeo but the ticket brokers I can find aren't shipping until very late November/early December. This isn't much use when you are international and leaving for Vegas early December. Does anybody know any firms that do e-tickets(home print out?)

    Ticketmaster usually does e-tickets. You could also just have them left for will call at Thomas and Mack center.

    A couple of comments / thoughts for you. For many events today it is not uncommon to not get a physical ticket mailed to you (just like airline tickcets). Many sites will have you print the physical ticket yourself, download it to your smartphone, or just show up at the ticket booth prior to the event with id and credit card.

    Now, having said that please consider this - last year I took my daughter to the rodeo (not the last night). I went to the thomas & mack center during the day to buy tickets. On the way to the ticket booth I was approached by half a dozen ticket "scalpers" all offering me tickets. I was able to get seats right behind the chute that normally sold for $165 each, for $50 each. Personally, next year when I go the PBR finals and Rodeo I plan on doing the same thing. It's less than a 5 minute drive from the strip. Just head over a little after noon, find the best value and I am set. All you need to do is familiarize yourself with the seating chart (which you can find and print online) and even take a copy with you to verify the seats are what you want.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Thanks MrsS-it's just the thought of maybe not getting tickets when travelling so far. Got to admit though that previously we've been "offered" tickets when approaching the Thomas & Mac, never had any idea of the price though. Hadn't realised they were so affordable

    Yeah, I understand what you are saying about making sure you get tickets, but other than the last night there are plenty of seats available for these events.

    Have a great time.
