    Any reviews on Chris Angel Believe!
     
  2. lol, Google it. The reviews are HORRIFIC. I've never seen it but it was one I was looking to book until I read Google reviews and quickly deleted my basket from the two seats I was close to paying for :haha:

    You will get more of the same here. If you search here, or just scroll through the postings in the ENTERTAINMENT section, you will find that Believe gets trashed more than any other show in Vegas. With that said, there are diehard fans that love it.

    They've also revamped the show a few times from its original incarnation. Apparently it's gotten better and more watchable (though I've never seen it).

    I would search the recent reviews on trip advisor before you made a decision.

    I've always liked Criss Angel and he's a pretty talented guy but this show just isn't good. Maybe it's better than it was a year ago, maybe not.

    Worst show we have ever seen. Friend wanted her money back. We saw it years ago during soft opening. He is nothing like he is on TV.

    From my trip report last October....
    Believe - I didn't really know much about Chris Angel. I had read reviews on many sites and his show is not highly recommended. Folks say either the show is not like his TV Show (which I've never seen), that it is not a "Cirque" show (which is good because I don't like them) or that they like magic and he does not do magic. Between the 2 of us we had so many MyVegas points to burn I thought what the heck. How bad can it be. It wasn't bad but just plain weird. Or maybe he was just plain weird. I will say he does have quite a following and some folks apparently love him. His show was sold out and there were lots of screaming fan in the front. We did leave this show early just because it was so strange. He doesn't do magic but illusions. The show was almost entirely him disappearing from somewhere or something and reappearing someplace else in the theater. I wouldn't go again, even for free. Not recommended unless you are a serious Chris Angel fan or like to look at fancy motorcycles which he apparently collects and displays in the lobby.

    thanks your review. I've seen his tv show and like some of his illusions, I'm not sure I'll spend money with all the negative reviews.

    My inlaws,(4 adults) and 2 teens went to see it and loved it. Four of them were first time Vegas visitors and had no expectations or read any reviews. I guess it depends what you are looking for and what you expect.

    Not good - at all. Not sure what I was expecting but even after reading bad reviews I tried going in with an open mind. He did old, bad tricks like sawing a lady in half. This is Vegas and everything is over the top but this show was even worse than cheesy and over the top. After the show I had a bad migraine from the music and lighting. Maybe it was just from the show because I never got one from all the good rock concerts I've been to...:cool:

    $350 wouldn't be enough, but this certainly would be...

    wife and I are one of the few people who really liked the show.
    this show is way better than the overrated penn & teller.
    give jan rouven a shot at the riviera. you can find very cheap tickets on the internet. the guy is good. the theater at the riviera not.

    Saw it a few years back. It was horrible. We wanted our money back. Kids might like it but it's the worst Cirque collaboration I have ever seen. And the show is just one big narcissistic display of himself. Don't waste your money. Spend it on something better. If you want to see a great show, go to Love or Absinthe or Michael Jackson One.

    I seen it 2 years ago (free tickets)...I must admit, I read the horrible reviews, and friends of mine hated it, but I was still curious-I thought with low expectaions, I might like it-wrong. It was bad. I just didn't get it. I went to see Legends in Concert the day before and had a way better time.

    My friend and his girlfriend were at the Luxor this past September. They were walking around the casino and they were approached and offered free tickets to Believe. They went and said from what they saw that it sucked biiiig time. There were a lot of empty seats and they walked out after awhile. And they weren't the only ones. Hard to believe it's a Cirque show too. Doesn't make sense.
