What is your favorite thing to do in Las Vegas? Gamble? Sit by the pool? Eat at a great restaurant? My favorite thing to do it go to one of the fabulous Las Vegas Shows.
I went to Las Vegas last week for the Bloggers at Midlife Conference. After the conference was over, my husband met me for a few days vacation to celebrate our anniversary – 32 years!
We aren’t really into gambling, but we love great entertainment so we saw two fabulous shows:
Two Must-See Las Vegas Shows
Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano at Caesar’s Palace
The first concert I ever went to was Elton John in 1975. He sounds every bit as good as he did back then. The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace is a beautiful venue and there is not a bad seat in the house. From the opening number, I was taken back to high school, then to college, then to early adulthood. Elton John’s music is one of the soundtracks of my life! Your Song, Tiny Dancer, I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues, Rocket Man – two hours of all my favorites. The videos/special effects added something to the experience that would be hard to replicate in another venue.
Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque de Soleil at Mandalay Bay
The experience starts as you walk in the door at the Michael Jackson ONE Theatre at Mandalay Bay. Ushers are dressed in Michael’s military type attire. When the show starts you are treated to a visual and musical show like you have never seen. Set to the Michael Jackson catalogue, it is 1 ½ hours of non-stop dancing, gymnastics, acrobatics and special effects. The highlight of the night for me was the performance to Thriller, complete with zombies coming into the audience.
Two very different shows – both a once in a lifetime experience.
