How often do celebrities roll through your town? If you live in Las Vegas, it happens every single day. Walk down the Strip and you’ll find seemingly endless opportunities to see famous performers. From residencies helmed by legendary singers to theaters where iconic comedians share the stage, there are no shortage of celebrities in Las Vegas on any given day.
With cooler weather signaling the end of pool season, November is the perfect time to spend some time indoors in Las Vegas – in the company of celebrities. Here’s who you can see:
At 57 years old, Paula Abdul can still out dance just about anyone. The multi-talented pop star, who recently closed out the Billboard Music Awards with jaw-dropping choreography set to a medley of her hits, takes to the stage at the Flamingo for her Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl show, which serves as a riveting rundown of her most-loved songs.
It doesn’t get much more rock and roll than Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. If you missed Aerosmith’s tour when the band was in its heyday, you can still catch them at the Park Theater at Park MGM. The Deuces are Wild residency will include both hit songs and deep cuts – plus exclusive video of recording sessions.
Calling all Lambs: Mariah Carey performs at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for five dates in November. In addition to hearing her unparalleled vocals live, fans will be treated to Carey’s famously engaging stage presence and elaborate costumes.
If you’re a ‘90s kid who grew up singing along to “Don’t Speak” on the way to school, you still have a chance to see Gwen Stefani in her Just a Girl residency at the Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood. Dance along through an audio tour of her vast and varied career, which has included hits like “Hollaback Girl,” “Underneath It All” and “The Sweet Escape.”
Zany comedian – and Las Vegas resident – Carrot Top has been performing in Vegas since 2005. See the fiery-haired performer, whose real name is Scott Thompson, inside the Luxor’s Atrium Theatre this fall.
Iliza Shlesinger got her big break as the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2008. Since then, her highly quotable specials have included War Paint, Freezing Hot, Confirmed Kills and Elder Millennial on Netflix. This November, she brings her jokes to The Mirage for one night.

When in Las Vegas, see Mr. Las Vegas. Wayne Newton, who is practically synonymous with Sin City, has performed over 30,000 shows on the Las Vegas Strip. If you haven’t seen him yet, book a ticket this November and experience the man behind “Danke Schoen,” “Strangers in the Night” and other classics.
You already know how over-the-top and theatrical Lady Gaga’s music videos and VMA performances are – now imagine seeing her live. Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency continues at the Park Theater at Park MGM this November with two distinct, separate shows. Choose from Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano, which showcases her vocals in raw, pared-down fashion, or Lady Gaga Enigma, a tour-de-force that dazzles with all of her pop hits.
Whether you watched Home Improvement, you currently watch Last Man Standing or you just really, really liked 1994’s The Santa Clause, you won’t want to miss Tim Allen at The Mirage inside the Terry Fator Theatre for two nights this month – November 8th and 9th only.
