Best Shows In Las Vegas
While Las Vegas is known for having a little bit of everything, its shows are definitely one of the most popular activities to experience during your visit. The good news is there are a wide variety of show options, and they are fantastic. With so many to choose from we decided to add some assistance and let you know which ones are our favorites. Some might call it a list of the top shows in Vegas, we call it a helping hand in entertainment.
Selecting Cirque du Soleil to be #1 on our list wasn’t the difficult part. Attempting to choose which one of the Cirque shows is the best seemed almost impossible, so we decided to combine them and simply present the production company as a whole. When it comes to Cirque and Las Vegas there are six shows to choose from, and each offers something unique and exciting. We are sure you will be wowed no matter which one you select. “Mystere” is a legendary fan favorite with phenomenal acrobatic performers and playful imagination. “O” features a water environment with mesmerizing choreography and music combined with spell-bound performers. “Zumanity” is intended for an adult audience and is based around eroticism and humor. “Michael Jackson One” creates a magical tribute to the King of Pop with action packed dancing and electric costumes. “KA” brings stage production and engineering to unprecedented levels and combines with a journey filled with live action stunts. “The Beatles Love” takes you on a magical journey led with emotion connections and production only Cirque can deliver.
Sometimes you are just ready to laugh. One of the longest running shows in Las Vegas is Carrot Top. His combination of stand up and prop humor is always kept fresh with new material. His show is high energy, face paced, slightly raunchy, but ALWAYS hilarious. From the start of the show, until curtain close, you will not stop laugh. Carrot Top is clever and edgy and finds ways to incorporate and make fun of current events, celebrities, athletes, politicians, and more. You never know what he is going to pull out of his stage trunk.
You’ll immediately discover something is going to be different with Absinthe compare to any other shows in Las Vegas the moment you walk up to its climate controlled mega tent in front of the Caesars Palace Hotel. Trust us you are in for a wild ride, and it’s a fantastic one. If we had to describe Absinthe with one phrase it would be “raunchy, but so much fun”. If you are offended by dirty jokes please skip this show. But if you are ready to be entertained with comedy, acrobatic acts, and ridiculously unique stage characters you’re in for an evening you won’t forget. It’s called absinthe for a reason because once the shows starts you’ll be lured into a new realm, one filled with laughter, awe, and WTF.
We think no introduction is necessary when it comes to being ranked by both audiences and critics as one of the top illusionists on the planet. David Copperfield’s reputation and magic show in Las Vegas continue to leave audiences flabbergasted. Without a doubt you’ll be asking yourself “how did he do that?” Audience participation is woven into the show’s storytelling, and lucky members will be brought up on stage to assist in individual acts. Pardon the pun, but this show is magical.
An altered realm is created the moment you enter the 360-degree theater at the Wynn Hotel. Created by Franco Dragone, and literally meaning the dream, La Reve invites guests to leave reality behind and enter a mystifying aquatic world. This show has it all including top notch acrobatics, diving, synchronized swimming in heels, lighting, vocalists, and music. Be prepared to be in awe of color an emotion brought to life. While categorized as being similar to the Cirque shows on The Strip, La Reve brings its own unique and magnificent edge. Elite level production and technical achievements ensure this show remains as one of the best in town.
A visually stimulating and musically brilliant adventure awaits each audience at Blue Man Group. You might be confused about what this show really is when you see images of three characters in black suits with skin covered in blue. Well this is part of the fun. You enter the theater not really knowing what to expect, and quickly discover an epic show based around comedy, interaction, and sound. It’s simply a treat for the senses and a huge mess of fun.
Described as a must-do for all bachelorette parties in Las Vegas, Thunder Form Down Under is girl’s night outback. This high energy male revue show brings sexy entertainers from Australia to the showroom at the Excalibur Hotel. It is definitely a hands-on experience that combines sexy entertainers with choreography, music and cheeky humor. You’ll have a blast and will leave wondering when you can go again.
