My opinion is that quality entertainment can be located anywhere and
I will visti that location. It does not have to be in a casino.
Some of the best music I have ever heard came from a non casino
location. Jerry O. Tulsa OK
For my money I go where the entertainment is playing not the building
they are playing in. Irene Charleston WV
I like seeing entertainment in the casino I am staying in. It
is easier than getting a cab and going to another location.
The venue isn't what I go to see, the show is. I want great
entertainment for my dollar no matter where it is located.

I love the Vegas shows, whether they are performed in a casino or
held in another venue doesn't matter to me. Micheline
I like the convience of "everything in one place"...No doubt about
it.. Saves on taxi fees, etc... Of course if it is someone that I
especially want to see I would high tail it to see them no matter where
they were at.... Peggy Barger New Smyrna Beach, Florida
I prefer a show to be located within a casino. If it is at the hotel
I am staying, really convenient! If another hotel, a short taxi ride and
a visit to a new casino and a chance to try new dining venues. Jack

For me personally, a good show that interests me would not have to be
in a casino. A really good show at a reasonable price by an entertainer
that I like would be the draw, Provided the location is not far from the
strip, since that is where we normally like to stay & spend most of our
time. Eddie Schulz Urbana,OH
We like the shows at a Casino so we can play the slots their before
the show and after the show. gary smith south bend, IN
We go to see the shows. Not to see where its at. As long as its a
good show, we will go and see it. Steve Sedalia,Mo
Will attend appropriate venue. Show and performers should match the
level of ticket holders. Adult shows in casinos, family shows in hotels.

i know people will more than likly say inside a casino. why? cause
its always been that way,staying inside a casino is what people do.
shows inside the casino are convevient, some get comps to attend, you
don't have to travel (which of course depends on who is playing at that
casino your staying at.)and thats the point. no travel. no cab fair ect.
i don't feel this would work. (outside casino shows). Ralph
When attending a show, having it take place in a casino is not my
single most important issue. My first concerns are always transportation
convenience and after show options. However, these issues are all very
closely related, for a show in a casino has the advantages of a
restaurant, lounge, gaming, cab availability and public bus service. For
me, any location within a short walk of these items would be just as
attractive. The casino issue aside, Location, Location, Location...

I much prefer attending shows that are within a casino. In most cases
attnding a particular show is only part of an evenings planned activ-ity.
Usually dinner and gaming are included. Thus when a show is at a casino
venue, unnecessary travel time is avoided and it is easier to transition
between activities. If a casino has a good show, good food, and
reasonable payouts it will be very likely to draw my business.
