Las Vegas is hailed as “The Entertainment Capital
of the World,” and when it comes to the Las
Vegas shows, there is certainly something for everyone. Big name acts
like Cher can be found headlining at some of the more notable Vegas casinos,
Dion tickets are always moving quickly. And while you can no longer
see Elvis perform in person, you can always catch an Elvis impersonator.
Headliners and impersonators aren’t the only ones filling the seats
at the numerous Vegas venues, however, and if you’re in the mood
for laughs, you can always enjoy a side-splitting comedy show. Magic shows
and production shows are among the other Vegas show categories, and the
adult shows are always there to add an edge to things. Don’t forget
about the Cirque
du Soleil shows when trying to decide which Vegas shows you’re
most interested in. They have been among the most popular shows in town
for quite some time.
For some, Las Vegas wouldn’t be the same without the hedonistic
edge that the city’s adult shows help to maintain. The French-style
burlesque shows are among the more classic Las Vegas adult shows, as they’ve
been a staple on the scene for decades. One of the most highly-acclaimed
burlesque shows in Vegas is Jubilee, which features production numbers
and some enticing dance segments. Another classic when it comes to the
Vegas burlesque shows is Crazy
Horse Paris, which integrates many artistic elements into its repertoire.
Ooh La La, which is one of the more innovative showgirls shows in town,
features sexy performers who not only sing and dance, but who also perform
magic tricks and aerial stunts. While some of the Vegas adult shows cater
mostly to men, there are also some that are tailor made for women. These
include the Chippendales
show, which has been a longstanding favorite.
Time spent in Las Vegas usually involves plenty of smiling and laughing,
and you can keep the laughs rolling during your visit by attending one
of the Vegas comedy shows. It’s possible to catch some of the funniest
acts in the entertainment business in Las Vegas, including Penn and Teller,
who bring their unique brand of comedy to the stage at the Rio Hotel and
Casino. Rita Rudner is another top comedy act in Vegas, and her shows
include jokes that span an extensive and rather impressive career. George
Wallace, who is perhaps best-known for his “People Say Stupid Things”
routine, also brings a career’s worth of jokes to the stage on the
Cirque du Soleil:
Mystical, enchanting, gravity-defying, and unforgettable are just some
of the adjectives that one might use to describe Vegas Cirque du Soleil
shows like KA
The Cirque du Soleil performing company, which is based in Montreal, has
been putting on shows around the world for some 20 years now, and if you
haven’t seen one, you’re in for a truly mesmerizing experience.
In addition to KA and Zumanity, Vegas Cirque du Soleil shows like O and
Mystere feature dramatic costumes, acrobatic stunts, and rich story lines.
Cirque du Soleil has been expanding its horizons in Vegas lately, and
their music-related shows, which include Beatles
LOVE and Elvis, are fast-becoming some of the most talked about shows
The Vegas headliners are among the most well-known performers that the
entertainment business has ever seen, so it’s understandable that
their shows sell out fast. Throughout the year, renowned music groups
and famous comedians visit Vegas to do a show or two before heading out,
while other big name acts choose to stay for an extended amount of time.
Big name music acts who have booked extended runs at Caesars Palace include
while Barry Manilow performs hits like Copacabana at the Hilton Hotel.
Donny and Marie Osmond have reunited to perform in Vegas, and like the
other headliner shows, their show features special effects that help to
make it anything but your average concert event. Finally, Celine
Dion concerts have been announced and are ready for purchse.
Las Vegas has long been known to attract some of the best celebrity impersonators
in the entertainment business, and if you want to see an array of them
plying their trades, you can get tickets to the Legends in Concert show.
Madonna, Elvis, and James Brown impersonators are among the personalities
that help to make this show a hit. The American Superstars show also features
a talented Elvis performer, as does the Elvis Tribute show at the Sahara,
which is a must-see for any fan of The King. While some of the Vegas impersonators
aim to impersonate legendary artists, others look to impersonate contemporary
personalities. Often times, these shows either rotate performers or are
known to introduce new ones as they go, so it’s always a good idea
to check the various billings around town.
As is the case with the Vegas headliner and comedy shows, the Vegas
magic shows feature some of the most highly-regarded performers in
the business. Criss Angel, who has been named Magician of the Year on
more than one occasion, has teamed up with Cirque du Soleil to bring added
depth to his Las Vegas show Believe. For a more edgy Vegas magic experience,
you might prefer the Amazing Johnathan show, which mixes magic with comedy.
and Teller, who are among the top comedians in town, also mix magic
with comedy. If you like their show, it is likely that you will also enjoy
the Amazing Johnathan show. Anthony Cools takes his Vegas magic show in
a bit of a different direction, implementing hypnosis into the mix. It’s
amazing what Anthony Cools can get his voluntary subjects to say or do
while they are under his spell.
Since Las Vegas caters mostly to adults, it’s hard to find Las Vegas
shows that the whole family can enjoy. Some of the Las
Vegas production shows are among the best shows in town for families.
This is especially true when it comes to the Lion King Las Vegas show,
which proves that Sin City does have a family-friendly side. The award-winning
director, Franco Dragone, has worked hard to make Le Reve one of the most
highly talked about Vegas production shows, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s
fantastic score helps to make the Phantom
of the Opera Las Vegas show a fan favorite. While Le Reve and the
Phantom of the Opera are predominantly serious in nature, other Vegas
production shows like The Producers are quite humorous. The Blue
Man Group Vegas show also incorporates some comedic relief into its
script, not to mention plenty of innovative percussion-related antics.
