Las Vegas April 2021 Shows & Events
This post has been updated for 2021 to include a number of fun things to do in Las Vegas in April, including open, nighttime, and family-friendly events.
Here is a list of the top events and shows you don’t want to miss this April.
- To go to a concert
It is still to be expected that hundreds of famous musicians will play in Las Vegas no matter what time of year. When in town, most of them give multiple concerts!
April is no problem when it comes to concerts, with the following offers:
- ZZ Top – April 9th - 17th
- Tech N9ne – April 24th
- Ice cubes – April 24th
- Cypress Hill – April 24th
- Lea Salonga – April 25th

2. Go to a sporting event
The Covid-19 pandemic has severely hampered sporting activities, and while many sports are still practiced, not all are open to the public. This may change as the vaccine spreads, but no games are planned for the live audience this month. However, before giving up the opportunity to see your favorite team in action, we recommend that you check to see if there are still tickets available.
3. Watch a musical
While traditional Las Vegas theater isn’t always a great choice, you can usually count on at least one traveling Broadway or playing a musical every month.
From April 1st to 4th you can bring the cult classic Tootsie to the stage in musical form.
4th Attend a stand-up comedy show
Just as musicians seem to flock to Las Vegas year-round, you will find a variety of well-known comedians in this city almost anytime.
If you’re after a good laugh, the following stand-up comedians will be performing in Vegas this April:
- George Lopez – April 3rd
- Marc Savard – April 1st to April 22nd
- Rich Little – April 1-30
Even if you can’t get tickets to any of these shows, there are plenty of comedy clubs in this area, such as the Laugh Factory and Comedy Cellar, where you can enjoy a few laughs every day of the week.
5. Save money with a discount pass for tourist attractions.
A tourist pass can save you up to 50% on ticket prices when visiting multiple attractions, doing multiple tours, or seeing multiple shows in Las Vegas.
These programs are especially useful when you want to participate in 4-5 different activities per day. However, some passes can save you money on just 2-3 tickets.
6th Take a food tour
Everyone knows that Las Vegas has a lot of great food, but how do you know where to start when you have so many options?
Fortunately, you can join a Secret Food Tour that covers some of the best dishes in Sin City, including exclusive dishes like a meatball pusher, scotch egg, and Japanese chocolates.
7th Take a day trip
When all else fails, there are plenty of great sights to see near Las Vegas. Here are some of our recommendations for those looking to spend a day out of town:
