Elton, Cher and Diana: 5 incredible LGBTQ icons taking over Las Vegas this spring


Las Vegas is one of our favorite spring LGBTQ vacation hot spots, and for good reason. Besides offering mouthwatering buffets, world-class accommodations and endless nightlife that makes the city a spectacular haven for anyone, Vegas has really outdone itself in 2018 by lining up concerts from incredible LGBTQ icons we all know and love.

Grab your friends, sign up for a frequent flyer account and pack your best concert outfit because here are five great entertainers coming Las Vegas this spring!


1. Diana Ross: ‘Endless Memories’ at Wynn Las Vegas,  February 7 – 24

The supreme singer of The Supremes, Diana Ross, makes a return engagement to the iconic Wynn Hotel with her “Endless Memories” spectacular. The queer icon will perform some of her biggest Supremes and solo hits (yes, including a song from The Wiz) that will leave both new and longtime fans swooning. Tickets will sell fast for this brief run, so Diana devotees should be sure to book early.
