Local ticket broker Click2Vegas.com announced today that Celine Dion still remains as the number one best seller of resident show tickets based on sales year to date. While Shania Twain, Rod Stewart and Elton John all do well, Celine does sell more for us.
After five consecutive years of sold out Las Vegas shows, a year-long world tour that entertained 3 million fans across five continents and 25 countries, Celine’s back with a spectacular all-new Las Vegas show.
The best-selling female artist in history is back with Celine Dion on the Caesars Palace stage for a powerful set featuring all her greatest hits and surprising covers ranging from Journey to Janis Ian, Celine Dion’s new Colosseum show is once more the talk of Las Vegas entertainment aficionados. The Las Vegas Review-Journal called it “the show of shows.” Newsweek called her show at Caesars Palace “Las Vegas’ biggest act since Elvis.”
We love Celine and congratulate her on being our Top Seller so far for 2013.

(PRVegas) Las Vegas – The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil today unveiled that Michael Jackson ONE™ will open and take residency exclusively at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino this summer. Directed by Jamie King, Michael Jackson ONE will start its preview performances on May 23, 2013 and have its official premiere on June 29, 2013. This entirely new show is the second creative project to be developed between Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson after the top grossing Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, currently playing arenas in Europe as it travels the world.
Michael Jackson ONE is a state-of-the-art visual and audio experience creating a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius. Guided and inspired by his music, four misfits set out on a transformative adventure. By journey’s end, they will personify Michael’s agility, courage, playfulness and love.
Michael Jackson believed that all people are unique and equal, regardless of race or culture. His message was one of unity, harmony and hope for a better world. At once evocative and enigmatic, the name Michael Jackson ONE also presents a paradox: Michael was a multifaceted artist who strove to fuse together various musical styles and art forms. It is a fitting title for a unifying journey into the world of the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.
