What do these artists have in common?
The list of performers is endlessly long and shows top artists. Some artists even come back after a few years like Celine Dion and Elton John. But what is it that triggers these artists to perform in Las Vegas?
Is it the money? Normally you would expect that artists like Celine Dion and Elton John have already earned a lot of money and do not need a performing gig like this to keep their life style.
Are they bored? After living a life on the fast lane with tours, it is probably quite shocking to suddenly be at home without having to travel for business anymore.
Exploring their creativity? Since the shows performed in Las Vegas are not moving over the whole globe there are more possibilities to set up a show, for more special effects. The Hotels and Casinos where the celebrities are performing are providing them with almost endless possibilities to fulfill their creative freedom just to get them to sign on to their Casino and Hotel.
Experiencing some stability? With a show in Las Vegas, the celebrities get to do what they love: performing. They have regular performances and therefore a regular schedule. Most shows are even scheduled over three years. This makes the future more predictable and provides stability to the former traveling live.
Personally I think that all of these factors influence the decisions of big artists like Celine Dion. The money is probably not the most important factor to do it, but they get paid so much it is like a really nice bonus. Other than the money they get to do what they love again: performing. They can do it without the hassel of traveling around the world and they can create their own big show.
I think it’s a great oppertunity for the aging artists to explore their creativity and perform for their fans.
