Our main purpose for going anywhere near Las Vegas was to see Celine Dion in concert.
Of the hundreds of shows in Vegas she is the only entertainer I would want to spend $198.50 times 2 for rear orchestra seats.
We parked in Caesar’s Palace’s Colosseum using their valet parking service which is free other than tipping the valet. Considering the number of people in the music venue in particular and Caesar’s Palace in general, the valet service was very fast.
Even though our belongings were searched upon entry to the theatre, we could keep our cell phones and point-and-shoot cameras. The only requests were no flashes and no video recordings.
The seats were excellent in that no one’s head was ever in my way and I could see every minute of the entire show. Even the woman in front of me rocking to the beat in her seat was not a distraction. I am glad, however, that I didn’t purchase the top level ticket because most of those people stood up the entire time and obstructed the view of the front orchestra.
Celine sang her hits, tribute songs to The BeeGees and Prince, and even some Great American Songbook standards. The music was a great mix of eras and genres all in the Celine Dion style.
Charlie and I had a great evening and then even a more interesting time at our AirBnB with a host who had never had guests before we arrived. One day I’ll write the whole strange story.
Who would you pay good money to see?
