Harrah's Launches Pay One Price Weekend Show Pass

Pay One Price

Hot on the heels of their hugely successful "Buffet of Buffets" promotions, the propellerheads at Harrah's Entertainment Global Resorts Incorporation Limited United Planet Loveman have unleashed a new "pay one price" promotion - unlimited "shows" for 48 hours for $99.

If you like entertainment, this is a pretty goddamn good deal. Of course, the top tier headliners (Celine Dion, Cher and whomever else is in the Colosseum) are NOT part of this deal.

BUT everything else is... from Nathan Burton's prop comedy to Chippendales, to George Wallace to Anthony Cools to the highly rated Human Nature show... you've got lots of options to get your money's worth.

All the details and fine print are here: Harrah's All Stage Pass.

Thanks to VT reader Vespajet for the tip.

It's not as good of a deal as it seems. Just like the 24 hour buffet pass which a normal person is only likely to use 2-3 times, there are only a small handful of combinations of shows you could reasonably see with this pass.

1) You have to buy the pass in person at Planet Hollywood, and the 48 hour clock starts the moment you buy it.
2) You have to then get actual tickets for each show you want to see, in person, at the box office for that show, no -earlier- than 2 hours prior to the show time you want to see.

This means most casual visitors will likely see exactly 2 shows with this pass, and save effectively nothing off the "retail" price. Considering the prevalence of 2-for-1 and tix4tonight offers, a lot of people will actually spend more on this pass than they would have by just buying discount tickets for the specific shows they wanted to see.

IMO, this is a terrible deal for anyone except people who plan to spend their entire weekend running around to Harrah's B-list matinees just to make sure they get their money's worth.

I'd shoot for a late show to start, hit the two afternoon shows, over the next two days, and then hit two evening shows as well, first night you have your choice, the second night you have to hit the early show. 5 shows easy and you could even probably double up on one of the afternoon shows.

I'd pay $99 to NOT see any of these hacks. Twice that if you throw in Carrot Top.

Dirk WHO??!! Also, I saw Divas for free last week just for being a local- not that bad for a semi-classic show, if you like lip-syncing.

They do not list a cutoff time to get a ticket prior to a show (I'm assuming showtime is the cutoff time.), so in theory one could catch an afternoon show (or possibly two if you hit the 1pm Mac King show), an evening show and a late night show.

The more and more I look at this pass, the more and more I'm thinking about buying this and trying to see as many shows as I can in that 48 hour period, since my first two days my next trip will be on The Strip.
