Went to see the legends show with Michael Buble, Adele, Meatloaf and Elvis, was very impressed with the quality of talent each performer had! It was a smaller venue than most in Vegas but it was still classy inside with a great bar and service! Great views of the promenade too! Will be booking more tickets with Georgia who was... More

We've been to the Sands Venue a few times in the past, great concept, lovely venue and lots of unfulfilled promise with disappointing shows. We've been to The Legends show on Central Pier several times in the past, great concept, professional show, poor quality venue and much unfulfilled promise. Legends at the Sands = when Mr Rolls met Mr Royce,... More

Great venue - clean and well organised. One over zealous bouncer I have to say - but then again there's always one bad apple. The others were friendly, smiley yet efficent - but this one looked like he was ready for a fight. Shame really. Unsure whether he was with Chubbs or Sands own. If Sands own they need to... More

The show was fine enjoyed it the food not the best, ordered two chillies and when they arrived they were cold the waitress apologised and replaced the meals which were not much better when they arrived but they did give us free drinks.
