Las Vegas Entertainers Hall of Fame

Click here to edit subtitle

In the last ten years entertainment in Las Vegas has changed dramatically.  Gone are the lounges with 24/7 entertainment.  Vacations to Las Vegas are no longer planned around the stars playing the main rooms for three or more weeks at a time.  Currently Las Vegas entertainment is Cirque production shows and one or two night concerts with an occasional headliner "in residence," and, the last surviving showgirl show, Jubilee.  This change has led to a new breed of Las Vegas entertainer - the Tribute Artist.  These talented performers pay tribute to the superstars who made Las Vegas the Entertainment Capital of the World, and we are proud to make them a part of the Las Vegas Entertainers Hall of Fame.  We recognize two categories of Tribute Artists:  those who headline in showrooms and those who are part of Tribute Artist shows
