Details of Las Vegas Hilton Theater and the Ticket Luck value
Theaters are usually the central attraction at most locations frequented by tourists. And nowhere do they prove their star value than in Las Vegas, "The Entertainment Capital of the World". They have been home to legendry crooners, prize boxing fights and world class musicals. A jewel in Vegas' theatrical crown is the Hilton Theater, which has been showcasing some of the most memorable figures in sports and entertainment for the past four decades. The theater is nestled inside the Las Vegas Hilton hotel and casino, which is located next to the Las Vegas Convention Center and besides being a Las Vegas Monorail stop, is minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip and the McCarran International Airport.
The year that the world saw the first member of the human race step on the moon also saw another highly acclaimed member start his legendary performing streak at the newly constructed Las Vegas Hilton. Opening as the International Hotel, it was renamed as Las Vegas Hilton two years later and was the largest hotel of its time. The venue arrived on the scene at the right time for the "Sin City" that was on its way to become the most glamorous tourist destination of the world. Having it origins as the land of the meadows (Spanish "Vegas" translates into meadows); Las Vegas has bloomed from a stop for railroad and construction workers in the course of a century to a haven for vacationers. Modern day Vegas boasts a population over half a million that charts its daily treks through the scintillating overgrowth of this concrete jungle.
Over the decades, Hilton Theater has carved its own niche within the 64 acre spread of its namesake hotel. The crystal-clear acoustics engulf the 1,700 seats that overlook the massive stage all within 87 feet. Three smaller sections of sets directly border the main stage whilst two larger ones embrace them from the back. Four balcony sections jut out further back, adjoining the end stage. The theater underwent a monumental revamp in 1995 when it was overhauled for staging Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express by pouring concrete ramps where the seating area is located.
Elvis Presley performed to sold-out and record breaking shows starting from and in the years following the opening of the Hilton Theater. From 1969-76, the King played Las Vegas to record breaking audiences, being thronged atop the Hilton Hotel in the 3000 numbered penthouse during his grand visits. Having also featured Barbra Streisand and bouts between Ali and Spinks, Hilton Theater has also hosted other well known acts of late, such as Reba McEntire and Barry Manilow.
Featuring a heady blend of tribute shows, classic rock n' roll sessions, jazz and R&B sidelined with dining options from the palate pleasing restaurants, cafes, bars and lounges, the Hilton Theater offers a tantalizing getaway in its ambience.
