Best Shows

There are an endless number of shows for anyone to see during their Las Vegas vacation, but if you want to see the best; you’ll have to narrow the list down. For example, you can’t visit Sin City without seeing at least one of the shows by Cirque du Soleil.

A Cirque du Soleil show that will amaze everyone is O at the Bellagio. O is an aerial water extravaganza that relies on advanced special effects and great performers to wow the audience. An unbelievable spectacle for the eyes, O takes advantage of a motorized stage that rises and descends from a 1.5 million gallon tank of water for vantage points you’ve never seen before. One thing's for sure -- no matter which Cirque du Soleil show you see, you won’t be disappointed. Another experience that doesn’t disappoint is when four-time Grammy Award-winning Boyz II Men takes the stage at the Mirage. Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris croon their timeless hits and wow you with their signature harmonies. Sing along to Boyz II Men classics like “I’ll Make Love to You,” “End of the Road,” “Water Runs Dry” and more when you watch the best-selling R&B group of all time at their highly acclaimed Las Vegas residency.    

Broadway fans will find something they love in Jersey Boys at the Paris Las Vegas. Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Jersey Boys immerses audiences in the story of how Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons that Valli himself says is 95 percent correct. You’ll hear big hits like “Big Girls Don’t Cry, “Sherry” and “Walk Like a Man” with a falsetto so good that you’ll believe it’s Valli on stage, but the marvel doesn’t end there. Las Vegas is so magical that it’ll transport you back to 1987 on L.A.’s Sunset Strip for Rock of Ages at Rio. Get up and dance to 28 great rock ballads performed in a Broadway musical that was nominated for five Tony Awards. Since Vegas offers some incredible magic, impersonators, dancing, and comedy shows, it can be hard to decide what to see; that’s where V – The Ultimate Variety Show comes into play. This production is all about entertainment, Las Vegas style. Aerialist, magicians, and performers of all kinds delight in a Vegas show that will always leave you wanting more.

For a show that’s a little out of the ordinary, check out Blue Man Group. With their faces painted bright blue, these three percussionists are sure to amaze with their talent while making you laugh at their crazy antics. The Blue Man Group uses light, color, and sound for their fun-filled show, and they even cover the audience in toilet paper at one point. Blue Man Group is a high paced, high-energy musical treat, only at the Monte Carlo. But if you're looking for acrobatics, feats of strength, and sultry escapades, Absinthe inside the Caesars Palace Spiegel tent should be front and center. Watch chilling circus acts performed just a few feet in front of you in this intimate setting. You’ll also get deliciously inappropriate comedy sent your way from the ringmaster Gazillionaire and his sidekick Penny Pibbets. And if you’re looking for a Las Vegas show that adds some edge to its magic, then you must check out Penn & Teller in their own theater at the Rio. These two performers have a rapport that’s been built over several decades to make some of the most elaborate illusions come to life. But magic is only half the show. Penn & Teller are never afraid to touch on social topics that are considered too volatile by their colleagues. It’s a class act you’ll enjoy from beginning to end!

While these are just a few favorites, it’s nearly impossible to find a bad show in Vegas!
