Cirque du Soleil - O

The best of the 8-10 Cirque shows I've seen.

Don't bother with Ka or La Reve.

Zumanity (cirque) might be up your alley?

If you like Beatles music then Love (Cirque) is a good show
If you like Michael Jackson then One (Cirque)

My SO and many others really liked Terry Fater (fator?), It was just OK for me

If you're into hockey the new Golden Knights venue is a great one (I've been to a few things there but not hockey yet, hoping to get out there before the end of the year)

Really depends on what you're into....

Good info thanks. Cirque de soleil is supposed to be very cool.

What about those two dudes with the white tiger? Are they dead?

We like most of them. My fav is love, SO is One (purely due to the music preference not really show preference)

Zumanity is more "adult"

Siegfried and Roy, you can still visit the habitat I think but no show (im not sure they did shows after the attack but maybe).

I think Rodney Carrington is there for a bit, his comedy might be your style.

I like "O" but also the one at Treasure Island is very good a less expensive.

I also like Terry Fator but might not be for everyone.

I enjoyed Penn & Teller.

I thought there was a thread on the Vegas forum with this question.
December is very slow for Vegas and some shows go dark or limited days.

There are 5 different cirque shows. How do you know which one to choose? I saw the Beatles one Annerj mentioned (can't bear to listen to .001 microsecond of any Beatles tune) and the O has no performances next week. I'm looking at Wednesday night next week.

I didn't like KA. My favorite was ONE which is Michael Jackson at Mandalay. But it's a matter of taste. ...if you aren't a MJ fan, don't go.
Just go to a strip club.

I've seen most of the shows in Vegas. O at Bellagio is in my opinion the most amazing production in Vegas. The transition from dry stage to water in moments is amazing. Well worth the price for the best seats. My second favorite for entirely different reasons is Absinthe at Caesars Palace although there is very non-PC humor, a tiny bit of lite nudity, and several acts by various groups. Seating is not real comfortable but I loved the show. For adult audiences only!

The last time I went to a strip club was in the summer of 1987 on my 19th birthday at a place called Cheetah's in Windsor ONT. I find zero value in paying some hag $40 to rub her sweaty caboose in my crotch.

anyway, thanks for the advice.

If I've got Ian's dates right, these are what are playing when he's in town.
