    Ok, I have seen every Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas with the exception of Criss Angel Believe, thanks to my host comping me tickets over the years. I have read many bad reviews about this show. Even though I won't be paying for tickets should I waist my time or will it be fine since I'm not paying. Thanks for your feedback.

    I'll dive in so start the popcorn munching. It is the worst show in the city, and beyond a waste of time. You'd have more fun sitting at the bar in the theater lobby, counting the number of people who storm out demanding a refund. :grrr:

    it's so lame it's not even funny. it's nothing like Cirque and nothing like Criss Angel's magic shows. this is info directly from one of my hosts who had the unfortunacy of seeing it since he works with MGM.

    Can't understand this......my friend said the same a year ago regarding Chris Angel's show, but he's still working and the show's still on. Go figure.

    I saw it once for free and even that was torture. You'd have to pay me at least $100 to see it again.

    He or his manager apparently are good at making MGM's money disappear.

    The only show in Vegas where the applause is pre-recorded and played through speakers. You can hear them echoing throughout the show, while the audience sits there, stone-faced. So obvious and pathetic.

    Do they really think anyone is fooled by that tactic?

    The misses and I just saw our first CdS show, MJ the immortal world tour. We liked it so much we're thinking about doing a show in Vegas.
    As you've seen them all Blackjacknut which one would you recommend?

    If you go you deserve the show you are going to get.
