Las Vegas is known to be the mecca of entertainment in the U.S.; be it magic show, sports match, concert, circus act, renowned plays,or musicals, you can be sure Las Vegas has it. Some of these shows you only really get to see in Las Vegas, and rarely anywhere else. Here are some of the best shows that you should consider watching when you visit!
Superb Stage Productions
O by Cirque De Soleil is one of the best Las Vegas shows as it was so popular with crowds, that it rightfully earned a permanent position in showing at the Bellagio.The show is water-themed, and uses a lot of its properties (there’s a 1.5-million-gallon pool of water on-stage) to complement swimmers, completing such an elegant piece of performance art.The show was named “O” because it’s similar-sounding to “Eau”, which is water in French. Tickets start at $99 each, and can be bought in the online website of the Bellagio.
What started out as a fun production held to signify the end of an era, theBlue Man Group began only with small exhibitions, and slowly started to increase in both size and popularity as it picked up in the entertainment scene. From such humble beginnings, it’s grown into a full-fledged, continuously running program at the Luxor Hotel and Casino since November 18, 2015.
Awe-Inspiring Illusions and Magic
Another crowd hit in Las Vegas are shows that have anything to do with magic tricks and illusions. One good example of these mentalist-type shows is “Paranormal – the Mind Reading Magic Show” by Frederic Da Silva. It is an extremely high rated show, garnering a solid 5 stars, rated by 1,237 reviews so far.
