The Hottest Shows In Las VegasAthletic bodies writhing in mid-air. Flames, pyrotechnics and lasers illuminating the stage. The ghostly profile of Broadway icon. There's an entire other side of Las Vegas, and if you let it, it will captivate your heart and sweep you off your feet. Today you have the good fortune of having your pick of the hottest shows Las Vegas has ever seen.
It doesn't matter if you've come for a Vegas vacation or on business; Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world. At one point in time, Vegas was a simple collection of lounge singers and seedy burlesque reviews. Today Las Vegas hotels and casinos are home to hundreds of sold-out shows, from magic shows and impersonator acts to superstar concerts and Broadway blockbusters. If you're heading to Sin City within the next few months, here is a rundown of the hottest shows in Las Vegas.
The Hottest Shows In Las Vegas - From Broadway to Sin City
* Spamalot - The award-winning musical depicting Monty Python's hilarious King Arthur escapades from their classic film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Where's it being performed? Why, at the Grail Theater of course, at the Wynn Las Vegas.
* Mamma Mia - Some things never go out of style. Luckily, the spandex outfits, the platform shoes and sweet sounds of ABBA apparently don't either, judging by the success of Mamma Mia! See it at the famous Mandalay Bay Theatre.
* Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular. What other city but Vegas would have the guts to change a timeless classic like The Phantom of the Opera? This new version includes drastically updated special effects and incredible new set designs, but thankfully, the drama remains. See Phantom for the first time all over again, at the Venetian.
The Hottest Shows In Las Vegas - Cirque du Soleil
* KA - Cirque du Soleil's very first production featuring a storyline is compelling audiences with its unique blend of choreography, sound and story. Derived from an ancient Egyptian fable about good and evil, set in a neo-industrial, post-apocalyptic world. This is playing at the KA Theater at the MGM Grand.
* Mystere - A colorful, frenetic display of acrobatics performed by none other than Cirque Du Soleil. Feats of magnificent human ability and mesmerizing music assault your senses until you're left gasping for air. This is playing at the Mystère Theatre at Treasure Island.
* LOVE - Cirque du Soleil's incredible tribute to the timeless music of the Beatles is perhaps one of the most highly anticipated production shows in Las Vegas's history. Remarkable acts of flexibility and agility are put on psychedelic display, all set to the memorable music of John, Paul, George and Ringo. This is exclusively at the Mirage. Tickets should be booked four months in advance.
The Hottest Shows In Las Vegas - The Headliners
* Barry Manilow - If there were ever a performer born for Vegas, it's Barry Manilow. His headlining show, Manilow: Music and Passion, proves that this singer of songs can still belt out his traditional classics like nobody else. He's singing the songs the whole world sings at the Hilton Theater.
* Elton John - Elton John brings his uncompromising British humor and musical mastery to Vegas along with his brilliant red piano. Enjoy a night re-living Elton's greatest songs, some of which are the most popular ever recorded. Elton graces the stage of The Colosseum starting in October.
* Bette Midler - Bette's show hasn't even opened yet, but it's selling out fast! Set to replace Celine Dion in February 2008, The Rose will surely be at her burlesque best when she hits the stage at the The Colosseum. Book your tickets for the Divine Miss M now!
Some other hot shows happening in Vegas include the comedy stylings of Carrot Top, Louie Anderson and Rita Rudner as well as many new tribute shows like The Rat Pack Is Back and The Fab Four.
