Whether you pay full retail for a show ticket or buy a half price ticket from our sister web site,, the trend in many casinos is no assigned seating in their showroom. It is designed to sell tickets per section, (VIP, General Admission, Preferred) rather than selling tickets by exact seat location. This movement is designed to entice people to arrive earlier in the showroom and award those people with seats closest to the stage in the section they purchased rather than having hundreds of people arrive seconds before the show starts and expect to be seated all at once. Do you like this no assigned seating rule or not?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!  (see other opinions below)

I like the idea of no seat assignments, that way i can buy a half price ticket and sit in the front row.  I did that twice on my last trip in September.  Ben Rawlings

I was not aware of this since I have not been to vegas in the past year, but it makes sense and if i can buy a discount ticket and be seated up front just for showing up early, then i like it.  Debra Washington

Usually I do not attend shows while in vegas, but with this new award type program I might see more.  I thought discount tickets were seated in the back, but this is great if I can buy a half price ticket and sit in the front row.  A. K.  New York

I believe that non-assigned seats is an awful idea. I myself have had several surgeries on my feet and cannot stand for a long time in a line to get good seats. For the most part you are paying high money to see shows and have to wait in line to buy tickets and then wait in line to see the shows. I have not been able to see many shows lately due to the
changes with the seating. I don't think that I am alone in this feeling.  Lucille O'Hehir   Medford, MA

No I do not like the general admission seating. I like to know where I am going to sit instead of being sat where the people who work there want to seat you. There is always the possibility that they may be saving the better seats for some friends that are coming to that show or they are waiting for someone to tip them for those seats.  chris koch   ashland,ohio

I understand the casino wanting people to show up early so everyone does arrive at show time and expect to be seated without a lot of confusion.  This makes it perfect for me, I can buy discount tickets and arrive early to sit in the front row, not thats sweet.  Jim Foster  CA

I can definitely agree with the general admission tickets and getting better seats on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. But it is also nice to have assigned seating. Maybe the 1st few rows of a place could be based on 1st come, 1st serve then the rest could be by seats. Sometimes you just don't get out of the hotel when you plan to or something could come up. I think a lot of older clients would prefered assigned seating. I can wait though!  Toni Hess  Chesapeake, VA

Sounds good to me, i like the idea of anyone being able to obtain a great seat.  Robert  Kansas

I don't think there should be open seating.  It reminds me of the day after Thanksgiving.  Black Friday. Everybody rushing to get the best and people have been killed because of it. Your picture of the venue shows that stairs are in use. Someone will get hurt, I promise you that. If people know there is a seat waiting for them exclusively. They are more relaxed getting to their seat. I have been with you for many years.  I just see open seating as dangerous.   rsenyeart
