Legends in Concert - One of the longest running showsLegends in Concert is a show that’s been running in Vegas for 26 years.

It was started in 1983 and first performed at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino.

The original creator was John Stuart Productions, but the show is currently owned and produced by On Stage Entertainment. Legends in Concert has shows all across the US, including Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Branson, Missouri; Atlantic City, New Jersey, and more locations.

Legends in Concert is hands-down the best impersonation show going in Vegas today.
