It may be hard to believe that the Las Vegas Strip - an epicenter of live entertainment - was once an undeveloped part of the city. Ingeniously reinvented by Thomas Hull in 1941, he built El Rancho Vegas Hotel-Casino and presented live entertainment to keep patrons at the property.

The Strip is now home to some of the world’s most spectacular acts from the gravity-defying Cirque du Soleil to international superstar Shania Twain. But Vegas is more than a one-street wonder. The recently opened Smith Center for Performing Arts and Fremont Street offer visitors an array of top-tier talent in venues ranging from intimate clubs to grand concert halls.

Don’t know where to begin when planning your Vegas entertainment experience? EDGE hits the jackpot with insider information for the hottest tickets on the Strip and beyond.


Shania: Still the One

Shania Twain has set up outpost at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with her brand new show, Shania: Still the One. As the top-selling female country artist of all time, she has sold a staggering 75 million albums worldwide and has 18 top 10 songs to her credit.

Twain recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and her memoir, "From This Moment On," continues to climb The New York Times best sellers list. While you can catch a performance of a lifetime in Vegas, Twain’s behind-the-scenes story is also being captured on her documentary series "Why Not? With Shania Twain" on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
