1. Elvis Presley
The pop icon from Memphis, Elvis Presley, performed his first show in Las Vegas in 1956. He wasn't received so well by the crowds. But on July 31, 1969, he was given a chance to perform live in a newly opened international hotel in Las Vegas. This time around, he wowed the crowd, and the rest is history. He became one of the most successful Las Vegas performers of all time with a residency lasting seven years. He performed a total of 636 shows at the Westgate Resort and Casino.
