3400 S. Las Vegas Blvd
It is a classic of the Strip and one of the best known and most popular casinos in the world. With an oasis theme mixed with luxury and a complete modernization over the last decade, this relatively old casino continues to attract a large number of visitors even as newer casinos and hotels are constantly going up. Part of its renovation included the addition of one of the most unique and popular shows in all of Las Vegas, LOVE by Cirque du Soleil.
LOVE is a skillfully wrought combination of acrobatics, dance, visual effects and classic rock. It’s a psychedelic trip through the 60’s politics and trends and through the history of the Beatles and their influence and is told through almost 30 songs from the Beatles.
It was originally a collaboration between Cirque’s Guy LaLiberte and George Harrison, however after Harrison’s death the remaining Beatles and family came together to bring Harrison’s vision together. The music director of the show is Sir George Martin who produced The Beatles music, and Martin’s son Giles.
The show features a wide range of acrobatics, gymnasts, trapeze artists, extreme athletes, the music of course, and all with a historical theme. The theater itself is incredible, seating over 2,000 a full 360 degrees around the stage, the furthest seat is only 98 feet away. There are 6,341 speakers in the theater and an advanced video system with 28 projectors.
