    he puts on a good show, in a little lounge at ballys. probably seating for 150?

    does a right on 90 minute show, runs the gamut on songs, backed by a great 6 piece band, though he does not have a lot of room to move up there on that little stage. will segue from one song into another, and loved what he did with " in the ghetto" though will not ruin it for you with details. also did some jackson browne, delbert mcclinton, some originals and some of his harmonica work.

    tangueray and tonic and a 16 oz. aluminum can of miller lite was 16 bucks, to give you an idea on drink prices.

    DO NOT bother standing in line at tix 4 tonite. i noticed many of their original prices were ficticious, but i was in line, so went ahead and got the tickets for taylor hicks, 52 dollars total, so 26 each. price at the box office, in air conditioned ballys was 29.95.

    besides the ficticious starting prices that t4t was discounting from, the staff out front was just horribly misinformed, had to laugh when a customer asked about vinnie barbarino, and the equal opportunity employee could not find it on her ipad. she was able to find vinnie favorito when i told her what to look for, but was not happy with my comment about the customers knowing more than her. once toward the front of the line, turns out most of the other employees also have issues with her, and when she goes on break things go a lot better.

    thinking paying full price at the box office, whether on the phone or in person, and getting to choose seats is better than standing in the sun in line for some meager discount, especially if only buying one or two seats. gregrio is right again!

    I think tix 4 tonight has run its course. I used them years ago when they actually had deals.

    Today, you can do better with dealing with the casino directly and using the internet. After you add the fees for tix 4 tonight it's not really a huge savings..

    add to that you have to wake up early and wait in line and some shows require you to hand in a voucher to actually get your seat...so theres a mad dash to the venue to get good seats... not ideal when there are better deals.

    I have to agree. At one time I used them on nearly every visit. It's been awhile now. With Goldstar, Groupon, Travelzoo and the others offering vouchers over the internet, my time isn't being wasted standing in line and running over to the box office to secure a seat before going back in the evening.

    And my choice for a discount broker (if I want a discount tic)
    is BEST OF VEGAS www.bestofvegas.com because I don't want
    to deal with the voucher routine, and I want to know what my
    SECTION, ROW and SEAT NUMBER is before I leave home.
    BOV is the only one that I've found that provides you with this
    info.

    Another discounter I have had some good results with is Vegas4locals.
    They have a website but their best deals are on their ebay store.
    They also have some limited restaurant coupons.
    You won't find the Cirque shows or any A list headliners but I have scored some great deals on some B and C shows.
