Whether you’re a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll, Donny and Marie Osmond will have you dancing in your seats (or maybe the aisles depending on whatever you’re sippin’ on) with their 90-minute, feel-good Vegas concert.Singing together on stage for the first time in 1973 during a Las Vegas Osmond show, the brother and sister duo discovered their niche and hit the ground running.And while Donny got his start singing with his six brothers in the family music group, The Osmonds, and while Marie originally achieved solo success when her version of “Paper Roses” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music charts, the two left their roots and joined forces in 1976 to host the ABC variety show, “Donny & Marie.”Still performing together today with every bit of gusto and showmanship that previously sky-rocketed the two into teen stardom, Donnie and Marie’s headlining Las Vegas show takes audiences back to yesteryear while simultaneously indulging onlookers with today’s popular hits.Since opening their show in 2008 at the Flamingo, their family-friendly concert entertains with high-energy numbers such as "Get the Party Started," "Dancing in the Streets" and "Knock on Wood” in addition to a new song, "Vegas Love,” which is off of their latest and first album they have recorded together in 30 years.Following the winning formula of their 1970s TV program by incorporating dancing and humor and performing most of their hit songs as a duo in addition to highlighting some of their career achievements individually, there is not a dull moment in this production.For Marie's turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, "Paper Roses," along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.She then takes it a bit slower for a moment when she belts out a flawless rendition of the operatic “Pie Jesu” but then heats things up with a mash up of "Walk this Way" and "These Boots Were Made for Walking," accompanied by male dancers and, of course, elaborate and dazzling costumes.But when it’s Donny’s turn to woo the audience, the set transforms for the performer who was always a little bit rock 'n' roll, and he appears out of the on-stage fog to rock his 1989 comeback hit "Soldier of Love."Donny, a "Dancing with the Stars" winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography in "Yo Yo" while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the '70s plays on a screen behind the stage.Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn't disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like "Puppy Love," accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years."This is the part where all of the women would scream," says Donny in the middle of "Puppy Love," which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. "I've still got it!" he proclaims and the audience agrees.Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like "Make the World Go Away," "Morning Side of the Mountain" and "Deep Purple."The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.The Osmonds have both starred on Broadway and they close the show with songs from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Wicked," "The Sound of Music" and more.Donny and Marie have been crowd pleasers in Vegas since childhood and judging by the fact that they're still consistently selling out shows, they'll continue to be welcome for many years to come.

Get ready for an R&B flashback in the flashiest of ways as Boyz II Men takes you on a soulful journey with a collection of their hits from years past, a sample of their new music, an a capella quartet demonstration as well as an energetic sample of some of Motown classics.Boyz II Men have officially joined the ranks of many entertainment greats including Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and Guns N' Roses with an extended residency in Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel and Casino.The four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B group (now composed of baritone Shawn Stockman and tenors Nathan Morris and Wanya Morris) kicks off their headlining show with the popular "Beautiful Woman," accompanied by an energizing full band made up of a drummer, a bass and electric guitarist, a trumpeter, a trombonist and a saxophonist who performs with them throughout the show.Smoothly transitioning into an upbeat Motown segment after performing various fan favorites such as "On Bended Knee," the three-man group exits the stage as a video reel of their accomplishments and love for Motown awe the audience across the theater's three central video display screens. With just enough time for a wardrobe change, the men re-emerge onto the stage, only this time clad in dazzling gold coats and Motown classic black and white, polished loafers opposed to their opening ensembles of sleek black, sequined-lapel suits.With a brief pre-recorded explanation from all three group members of their favorite Motown inspirations explaining how Motown is "...a sound that has basically shaped how we listen to music today," the group takes to their microphones belting out their revived rendition of The Temptations' 1965 classic "My Girl."With synchronized choreography and jubilant energy, Boyz II Men do what they do best and bring the audience to their feet encouraging their fans to dance and sing along...and without hesitation, seemingly every onlooker becomes a part of the show as the soul of the performance resonates throughout the crowd while they dance and sing along with the stars to several other Motown favorites including Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' "The Tracks of My Tears."Following the Motown segment is a hilarious YouTube video reel of Boyz II Men fans singing (and...let's be honest...attempting to sing) a variety of the group's hits all while the stage is swiftly transformed into a street scene of their hometown, Philadelphia. Complete with a bench, a sneaker-strewn lamp post and a few trash cans, the Boyz include their backup singer, Mark Nelson, and give the band a break as they indulge the audience in their a capella quartet set.Again changing clothes, the feel becomes even more hometown as the singers are dressed in jeans, chucks and red sequined, "P" (for Philadelphia, of course) adorned letterman sweaters, the audience gets a feel of how the group came to be long before they were ever famous; the singers performed on street corners and subway platforms in this fashion before working their way backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert in 1989 and impressing Michael Bivins, who offered them a deal.Nearing the show's end, a guitar jam session that includes the band's guitarist as well as Stockman takes place before the highly anticipated performance of "I'll Make Love to You." Having won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for this chart-topping love track, not only do the fans know every word of the song, but they know that this is their chance in the show to get up close to the crooning performers.As soon as the first chords strike this song into its first verse, each singer gathers an armful of long-stem red roses and the women of the auditorium crowd the front of the stage in hopes of receiving a piece of the bouquets that the singers' ever so gently toss out to their admirers.But even though it is during this song that the group becomes very involved with the audience members, this is not the only interaction that the group makes with the audience. Throughout the show, the group engages with the audience on the floor level even selecting women to dance with at various parts of the performance. Making it a very personal and humble performance, perhaps this is why these men have retained such a strong following seeing that they truly value their fans' show experience. (Insider tip: If you want a chance to dance with, shake hands with or maybe even get a hug from one of the Boyz II Men group members during the show, try to book your ticket for the first few front rows.)Concluding the show with the audience on their feet, the ever-lively, harmonizing group shakes their fans' hands, gives out some hugs and sends off sincere waves to the back of the house before the final curtain closes.  In the beginning of the group's Mirage residency, Vice President of Hotel Operations Franz Kallao remarked, "All of us at The Mirage are excited to welcome Boyz II Men to our resort, giving guests the opportunity to experience one of the best R&B groups in the music industry," and clearly that welcome is still alive and well as Boyz II Men remain one of the best R&B groups to date.

When purchasing, you don't get an exact ticket location. Why?

When are the seats assigned to you? When can I find out where we're sitting? If I call the box office, can they tell me?
The seats are based on category and the earlier the pick up the better the seats in the category paid for.
