Las Vegas August show, concert & club ticket demand slowly starts to recede with temperatures.
The summer is almost at a close in Vegas, and for many it is a good time to hit up the Strip before the Labor Day weekend crowds and cooler days start to roll in. While many may be turned off by high temperatures this time of year, for the opportunist, August can be a great time to for hotel deals. Casinos and flights are relatively cheap during this last month of summer, and ticket prices for shows can be a little less than usual.
