Las Vegas Shows List
The Last Vegas shows list has a wide range to offer visitors. Families can enjoy circus shows and musicals catering to kids and adults, while couples can opt for some racy stand-up comedies or adult entertainment performances.
- Blue Man Group. The Blue Man Group is unconventional in terms of Las Vegas shows. There are no fancy costumes, sexy numbers or body-twisting circus acts. For 90 minutes, the three-men cast of the Blue Man Group brings audiences to a place of percussion, comedic storytelling and good old performance art with the help of PVC pipe plumbing for musical instruments.
- Mystère Cirque du Soleil. Cirque du Soleil is famous for its acrobatic acts, powerful visuals, imaginative costumes and unorthodox music selections. Mystère is no exception. It is a show full of Japanese taiko drumming, gravity-defying acrobatics and the infamous Aerial Cube, where a performer juggles a giant piece of metal cube while performing a ballet dangling above the audience.
- Criss Angel "Believe". Criss Angel is one of a few illusionists, or magicians if you will, that is a household name. Famous for his TV show “Mindfreak” on the A and E Channel, Angel’s “Believe” Las Vegas show has a Goth-inspired set and includes audience favorites such as levitations and vanishing acts.
- David Copperfield. He is perhaps the most famous illusionist of them all and he has made the Las Vegas show circuit his home. David Copperfield is notable for illusions he pulled off when he still had a television show, including the disappearance of a jet liner and also New York’s Statue of Liberty. He brings the same excitement to his magic show at MGM Grand only on a smaller scale.
- Vegas! The Show. This can be considered as homage to the Las Vegas shows that graced this neon-lit town. It includes extravagant productions of past performers and acts as it takes the audience down memory lane of Vegas in the early years.
- The Lion King. From Broadway to Las Vegas, “The Lion King” is a musical extravaganza to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. This is a coming-of-age story of Simba, the young lion who is the hero of this musical. This Vegas show has a large cast of around 40 performers wearing intricately designed costumes.
- Donny and Marie at the Flamingo. The Osmonds have come home. Las Vegas was the first venue that these siblings performed together in 1973 and have made Vegas their residence to bring old favorites such as “Dancing in the Streets” and “The Way You Do the Things you Do” to the strip’s audiences.
- The Price is Right Live. Bob Barker is the quintessential face of “The Price is Right” on television, a spot taken over by Drew Carrey. Performer Todd Newton hosts this game show in the Las Vegas strip. The show stays true to the TV version, including having dummy television cameras and attractive female models as hostess. Children are allowed to watch but only those above 21 years old can join the game.
- Zumanity. This Vegas show has an age restriction of eighteen years old and over, and is the represents the hedonistic angle of the otherwise kid-friendly Cirque du Soleil. This act has a sensual tone highlighted by French maid uniforms and loin cloths for costumes.
- Jersey Boys. Hit singles such as “Big Girls Don't Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are only a few of the tracks included in this musical about four Jersey boys trying to make it big in the music biz. This Las Vegas show takes the audience into a journey as the boys turn into men, finally realizing their dreams of wealth and fame, including their names in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
