As a veteran of Las Vegas visits I can tell you that various casinos always find tickets for their high roller customers.  If you have a casino host you should contact your host immediately.  As they are arranging your September visit it would be a good time to have them get you these hard to get tickets.  Just my suggestion.

The entire event takes place at the MGM Garden Arena located at 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas.  The mammoth arena seats 16,000 people plus the arena floor.  It is best known for professional boxing matches with Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya and many more.  It also has hosted WCW wrestling, Ultimate Fighting Championships, and the Billboard Music Awards show.
