Rappers, rock bands and comedians are all clamouring to appear in Las Vegas after lockdown restrictions were eased recently. While visitors to the city’s casinos must wear face masks while indoors, many are prepared to err on the side of caution to be able to enjoy what the strip has to offer.
With the possibility of holidays to the US being back on the cards later this summer, many UK citizens are becoming increasingly keen to visit famous US tourist attractions such as Walt Disney World and Las Vegas.
As one of the world’s biggest gambling destinations, Las Vegas has been busy reopening its casinos, resorts and hotels so that visitors can once again take advantage of its hospitality within COVID-safe surroundings.
In recent years, Las Vegas has become almost as famous for its star performer residencies as its venues, with acts like Celine Dion, Donny Osmond, Elton John and Britney Spears drawing visitors from around the globe.
Now that the city is re-opening, we’ve seen a flurry of exciting acts and artists returning, with several famous faces planning to perform their first gigs on the world-famous strip over the coming weeks and months.
Which stars will be appearing?
Just some of the acts that have been confirmed in recent weeks are songwriter and performer, Adam Lambert who will be performing at The Venetian in late October, legendary rock band Journey appearing at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in December, KISS who will be live at Planet Hollywood from December to February, Dominican rapper El Alfa, country music legend Reba McEntire, and comedian Eric D’Alessandro.
Can I play bingo in Las Vegas?
The city is home to multiple bingo rooms including Red Rock and Palace Station. The Gold Coast Hotel & Casino boasts Nevada’s largest bingo room, where 8 games take place every day and there are 720 seats.
What’s the current advice on travelling from the UK to the US?
According to global travel experts, Condé Nast, the US is on the UK’s amber list which means that fully vaccinated US residents do not have to quarantine when they fly to the UK. However, since March 2020, UK residents (as well as those living in countries like Ireland, China and Brazil) are not permitted to enter the USA.
On a more positive note, the US government is working on an initiative that will allow foreign tourists to show proof of vaccination when its travel restrictions are eased. And now that the UK has added the US to its amber list, America is likely to return the favour by the end of the summer, a sentiment which is shared by America’s Chief Medical Advisor, Dr Anthony Fauci.
