    I am a rather large guy (6'4, 400). What shows have seating that I will be ok sitting in? (I don't expect to be comfortable). Which shows have couch seating? I did go see Penn and Teller a trip ago, and sitting in the 3rd row I found my seat nice and not too tight.

    The wife has her heart set on seeing Olivia Newton John, how are the seats there?

    We had table seating for ONJ. Just normal chairs on either side of a table. Not sure the entire theater is set up that way but I think you get a booth or a table. Kind of the "old school" Vegas set up - not like a regular theater (i.e. like Penn and Teller would be).. So either way you are not in a seat with armrests on both sides. Table seating was pretty tightly spaced but I think you could find a way to be comfortable.

    We really enjoyed her show by the way. Hope you will also.

    Stay away from Absinthe. Small wood chairs that are very tight. I think the front seats at Zumanity are of the couch type. Also, I think some of the seat at Million Dollar quartet had some booths.
     
    Always seems so far away............

    LV2GAMBLE is correct Zumanity having some couch-type seats, but sitting that close, you're just asking to be picked on at that show.

    Hopefully with Absinthe moving to Cosmo, the seating will be slightly better.

    I'm not the biggest dude, but KA has some decent seats. I don't remember being too cramped or uncomfortable. I just saw LOVE about a month ago and my seat was a little tight there.

    belive or not u will be fine in alot of them, abstinth i belive u take a back table ur fine. the old school theaters are fine.

    more newer ones have fixed seats, so keep that in mind. also u can ask for the wheel chair seats , they can probaly give u a folded chair so more more just a suggestion.

    but clint holmes and baz ur fine.

    most of the old rio ur fine same with Flamingo .

    harrahs also

    it might be asier to pick a show and ask or call the theater and ask them to help u.

    circqu no, ti no, mirage no ,t mobile no,. MGM Grand arena no . just my opinion

    john ogerty and the other concerts at the ventian no

    you fine at the sls as no one goes there so you will have plenty off room .lol

    if i rember corectly u will be fine ,i belive they have bothes

    I'm on the larger side and found most Cirque shows are fine - LOVE was the exception - those drink holders just dug right on in. Zumanity has some couches further back from the front row (classily described as the "non molestation zone" by the usher). The only other places I found it a bit tight were the arenas (MGM Grand/Mandaly Bay Events Center).

    Because of how important it is to your wife,I suggest you contact the ONJ show directly and discuss it with them. I'm sure they will help if they can.

    Totally agree about Love, that was one of the most uncomfortable theaters I've ever sat in. Killed my whole experience.
     
    I need one more trip to up my frequent flier level

    Years ago, when Blue Man Group was at the V/P, DW and I (we are both 'persons of size' according to Southwest Airlines) went to get into our seats... yeah right! Without hesitation an usher brought us around to wheelchair seating, had regular chairs for us, made sure we had bottled water and crepe paper. They work with larger people all the time, so contact the show and they will help you.

    Never go to a show at Mandalay Bay Arena. Those seats are about the smallest in town.
