Gambling isn’t Everything: Must see Las Vegas shows 2019.
An extended Vegas vacation doesn’t usually end well for the gutsy
gambler. Unless you’re budgeting your bankroll perfectly, odds are
you’re going to run out of wagering dollars before the trip is over.
If that’s the case, I hope you set aside enough to take in a few of
the best shows in Las Vegas.
The Strip isn’t all about feathered showgirls and Magic Mike strip
teases, although they are some of the most popular and culturally
iconic shows in Sin City. There’s much more to see than perfectly
tanned, sinuously muscular skin. While I don’t discourage you from
witnessing those classics, Vegas is bringing the best of the best to
the table in 2019.
Must See Las Vegas Shows 2019
These are the shows sure to harness the most fascinating and
long-lasting memories for their viewers. I’ve seen each one
personally over the years, and there’s honestly nothing else like
them on the planet. Don’t pay full price for your tickets, tho! Ask
your hotel concierge to hook you up with a VIP guest ticket courier,
who will take care of everything and discount your tickets up to 50%
off. Just remember, this is Vegas – the better you tip, the better
they treat you!
Cirque Du Soleil
Edging up on the company’s 40th anniversary, Cirque Du Soleil is
among the most iconic shows of Las Vegas. What began as a small
Canadian troupe exploded into a fabulous performance that’s taken the
entire world by storm. The world-famous circus without animals
combines stunning lights, sounds and extreme acrobatics like no other
show on earth.
Cirque has been performing its Mystère show at
Treasure Island since 1993, and O at the Bellagio since
1998. Zumanity plays at New York, New York, The
Beatles Love at The Mirage, Michael Jackson: One at Mandalay Bay and in October, a new show, R.U.N.,
will appear at Luxor.
Among these, I highly recommend the aquatic-themed O and celebration of the original rock and roll boy band in The
Beatles Love, and I can’t wait to see R.U.N. when it hits the
theater this fall.
“Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.” Wait, that’s not
right… but it’s true! This witty, edgy, performance will surprise
and entertain you like nothing else in Vegas. It’s a circus-style
show, similar to Cirque, but with burlesque tendencies that cater to
adult audiences only.
This quick-witted act is salaciously suggestive, borderline lewd, and
laugh-out-loud hilarious. You’ll find it in the Roman Plaza just
outside the city’s epochal Caesars Palace.
I know, this one is a niche-market show that will only appeal to Cher fans, but let’s be realistic – that’s a huge niche-market! Cher has been performing since 1965, and at the age of 73 (yeah, that’s not a typo, ladies and gentlemen), she is still gracing the stage with her classically gorgeous high-energy presence.
Cher is only going to be in Vegas for 12 days this summer, from
August 21 – September 1, 2019 at the Park MGM. This may be your
last chance find out, in person, why this Emmy, Grammy and Academy
Award winner will forever be dubbed the Goddess of Pop.
