Most successful Las Vegas Residencies Ranked

Notorious for its nightlife and entertainment, Las Vegas is home to a plethora of venues like Dolby Live, Resorts World Theatre, and Caesars Palace's Colosseum - all home to some of the biggest artists in history. Right now, you could be attending concerts from Maroon 5, Usher and Carrie Underwood, all happening in Vegas throughout the rest of the year.


Celine Dion Top Of The Charts

Research carried out by Genting Casino unveils the top 10 most popular Las Vegas residencies to have graced the neon capital of the world and provided Nevada with a night to remember. Determined by a unique index score - with the lower the overall index score the higher the ranking - the research takes into account venue capacity, estimated attendance, duration of residency and estimated box office gross.   

Even though, no doubt, everyone has their personal favourites, the collated data reveals that the two most popular residencies to date are held by Celine Dion, with her residencies from 2011-2019 and 2003-2007 claiming the top two spots, with respective index scores of 10 and 14. Narrowly falling behind in third place was Elton John, with his show ‘The Red Piano’ taking place between 2004-2009 and finishing with an index score of 18.

Elton John, yet again, rounds out the top 5 with an index score of 20 with his other residency ‘The Million Dollar Piano’, taking place in between 2011 and 2018.  

Other artists included in the rankings are Rod Steward, Jennifer Lopez, Cher and Lady Gaga, placing respectively sixth and seventh - with Cher and Lady Gaga finishing joint-eighth with equal index scores of 31. Bruno Mars and Bette Midler round out the top 10.  

Taking places in the rest of the rankings are Cher, again, as well as Gwen Stefani and George Strait. Concluding the table are The Backstreet Boys, Katy Perry and Mariah Carey twice, taking spots in both fourteenth and sixteenth.
