6.5 Headliners & Concerts: Who's playing now

Most Las Vegas “production” shows run for months ...some even for years (or decades as in the case of Jubilee!.) But the list of production shows, headliners and concerts is constantly changing. Finding an up-to-date list of them can be a chore. Many are not kept current. Here are some websites that we consider fairly accurate: 

Show search engine at the LVCVA
(Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority.)
This search search engine is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  It lists all the shows, and tells you the cost and when it is available.  It is the most accurate of any show list we have found. You can select only Comedy, Holiday Events, Impersonators & Tribute shows, Magic and Musical shows ...or all of them.

These next three websites are somewhat accurate, but are not as good as the LVCVA search engine.
