    ................on the Strip and Downtown.
    The price range to watch a show production or celeb, etc. as of June 2015. This surprised me, i would have never guessed this in a million years.
    Any guesses?

    Your question was misleading. You included celeb.....that could have included a $1500 Shinia ticket.

    I should have said just shows. According to my bible "Las Vegas Where" for June, Donny & Marie max out at $305. "O" at Bellagio max at $295.
    The reason why i mentioned celebs is because many of the stars of Vegas shows are celebs, like Penn & Teller, who frequent other shows, but i guess i should have said just stars of shows that don't charge an arm and a leg.

    Donny and Marie's $305 ticket is their VIP/Meet and Greet package ticket. Olivia Newton Johns VIP/Meet and Greet ticket is $350. Donny & Marie are at least entertaining .. ONJ, not so much!

    My wife and I have do the VIP/M&G packages for shows we see in Las Vegas. Donny and Marie were impressive - seemed genuinely excited to see their fans.

    I disagree Donny and Marie are the most expensive. The most expensive seats I see for a "resident" performer on a regular basis are for Britney Spears. Her VIP slots start at $525 and go up into the thousands.

    Bill, i was reprimanded by fellow VMB people for not separating residents with celebs......LOL.
    The most expensive ticket, whether it be a M&G or just the show, was Donnie & Marie according to Where Mag for June. "O" at Circue was just behind them.
    The "residents" like Britney, JLO, etc. are in a different universe in a galaxy far far away. You need to be in the 1% tax bracket to afford tix...LOL.

    Well, here in Utah, Donny and Marie ARE huge celebs. They're probably the most famous two people to come out of our state.

    What do I win?

    We tried to see this show in May. I got up early, went and waited in the 1/2 off tix line for 45 minutes, got the tickets only to be called at noon and told that Donny wouldn't be performing that night. Now no one will convince me that ole Donny boy didn't know by 9:30 AM (the time they list the available shows for the day) that he wasn't performing. Don't know that I will every waste my time trying to get tickets again.

    I'm surprised the show didn't go on with just Marie instead, i'm sure she could have sang a little bit rock & roll as well as a little bit country. They could have just discounted the tickets beforehand if people were OK without Donny.
