The big names
Chances are you’ve already heard of several of the definitive Las Vegas shows. The performers who first caught fame in this glitzy city are just as fresh today as they ever have been, so definitely make sure you check them out.
The Blue Man Group is a fantastic example. The trio of unspeaking blue fellows are famous the world over, but it’s Las Vegas that they call home. Their performances play out over jazzy tunes and feature plenty of comedy antics – although their shows nowadays also have a way of stirring audience emotions. The Blue Man Group is so popular in Las Vegas that they’ve got their own specialised theatre space, hosting them time and time again in the glamorous Luxor resort.
Another dynamic duo always setting the stage ablaze in Las Vegas – sometimes quite literally – would be Penn & Teller. This duo of magicians has done plenty to debunk the most common myths of the Magic Circle since their careers took off, but that doesn’t make their performances any less engaging. Even their most dramatic TV programmes can’t replace the thrill of watching these talented magicians live, complete with the energy and tension they inspire in their audience.
