If I had to pick any production shows to see in Vegas my top 5 would be:

"O" at the Bellagio
"Love" at the Mirage
"Lion King" at Mandalay Bay
"Phantom" at Venetian
"Mystere" at TI


I can also recommend 'The Rat Pack Is Back' show at The Plaza. Terry Fator's show at the Mirage is really good.


Most of the shows are really quite good. The only ones I have not enjoyed are 'Le Reve' at Wynn-I had free tickets for that show and was underwhelmed and bored by it. Also 'Criss Angel Believe', again free tickets but the whole show concept was confusing in a manner of not really sure what the show wanted to be.

Hey Mick
I heard that Cirque de Soleil "O" is wonderful - its water themed.
Thank you mutti and tigerm,
I think that is the show Anne Shipley mentioned - "O" at the Bellagio

Yeah, this is a good point. Quite a few of the Cirque shows and others do go dark around early December. It is a relatively quieter part of the year for Las Vegas, so often a good time to close shows for cast holidays etc.

Las Vegas concertgoers might find the following article to be of interest (its from the NY Times and describes the current economic situation in the city).

If anyone is traveling with children, (or not, the show is entertaining for adults, too) I'd highly recommend Mac King's show at Harrah's. It's in the afternoon, inexpensive (you can find coupons around town that give an even greater discount) and is lots of fun.
Mac is an incredible magician and the show is hysterically funny.
Also, in the evenings is Penn and Teller at the Rio, one of my favorite Las Vegas acts, too.

Interesting article and unfortunately so true. I lived in Las Vegas during some of its boom years, and have friends still living there....the contrast in times is incredible. It mirrors the same economic woes as most of the US (and many countries) but because it's Las Vegas everything is bigger. I believe it was about 8-9 years ago when LV was the exploding entreprenurial center of the US, with the spreading housing developments to go along with it....and then everything stopped.

Had to smile at the part of the article mentioning the hotel bargains! Obviously Caesars Palace has not heard of the local recession...or perhaps they figure if us suckers (me included) are willing to pay the price, they'll charge it! ;-)

I am sure you know Las Vegas is an highly transient, tourist city. But as bad as the economy as The Strip is still very busy on weekends. Unfortunately many out-of-towners gambled on owning property in Las Vegas which inflated property prices artificially high-the house next to mine changed hands 4 times in 2.5 years. The sale price was $250K, $285K, $315K, $365-all to Californians trying to flip for big money.

Alas, Caesars has always been an higher end hotel and very popular-more so with rodeo, a big fight that weekend and a few concerts in town. Personally I think the rooms at The Palms are far better than Caesars.

So cool! The memory of Elvis was still hot when I lived in Vegas! He was a consummate entertainer! Wish the real thing was still around. ;)

For anyone who has been on the fence about attending the Sat show in Las Vegas, we are approaching limited availability time. I was at the box office today purchasing tickets for a friend (the fee's are a lot cheaper at the box office). Anyway, the front orchestras are almost all gone (that is $250 seats). The $175 and $49.50 seats are completely sold out of pairs, leaving just a few hundred tickets available in the other price levels.
I would guess there are about 500 seats left, so if you are sitting on the fence about attending the last night in Vegas, now is the time to start reserving your seats.

Again availability is sold out for $99 price level, leaving just a few tickets in $250 and $75 seats. Probably only a few hundred tickets left and we will be approaching sold-out very quickly.
