    Summer of cirque deals are the best. way better then tix 2nite.

    just search for summer of cirque and then look for las vegas deals if this link doesnt work.

    http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/destinations/las-vegas/home.aspx

    they start at $55 plus tax and fees.

    You have to think what it is you really like about cirque shows. Do you like the storyline, the oddball music?

    There are some in water, for me I dont like shows in water so I wouldnt want to see that.

    If you just want a "generic" type cirque show that has it all then Mystre would fit the bill.

    if you love the beatkes, love would be it.

    They are almost all good so you really cont go wrong. maybe the elvis one might not be up top par but i havent seen it so dont know. cris angel has poor reviews too.

    i loved Ka. cool story and music. a bit less acrobatics but more interesting stuff. reminded me of a live version of avatar if that helps.

    You can call the bix office to get the same deal as the summer of cirque website and they can help you select tickets.

    I'm a huge fan of KA, more WOW factor than Mystere. I did see KA first and that seems to have an impact on peoples opinions. I haven't seen O yet. Love was good but not quite the Cirque experience for a 1st timer.

    Ka is the best show in Vegas. More than a show, a life experience! Utterly fantastic! Mystere is wonderful, classic Cirque. The others are fine, but not as good as those two.

    Honestly, for a first show, I would see Mystere before any of the others and then grow from there!

    I did not want to even go to one of these but went for my DW, and I ended loving them. The first and best one was "O". Have also seen (in order of preference) Ka, Mystere,and Love.

    I saw Ka and Love. I fell asleep during Ka but it may have been jet lag and wine. But even during the awake parts I didn't love it. I loved Love and did not expect to because I thought it would be Beatlemania, which it isn't. Also I'm a former recording studio guy so I get into audio, and I love the Beatles, duh.

    O if you like water shows. KA if you like intense action. Mystere if you want to see a classic Cirque-style show.

    I've only seen KA and Believe (but that one doesn't count). KA was pretty damn sweet and Ill definitely see it again.

    Really enjoyed Love - seen it 3 times. Also liked Mystere.

    Found O boring, and as for Elvis - well, no wonder it's closing. Dreadful.

    Saw "O" first and really didn't like it. Felt it was pretty slow.

    Saw Mystere the night after and thought it was awesome. We are planning on seeing Ka for our next trip.

    I couldn't wait for "O" to end. My wife liked it, but I was bored (and ready to get back to the tables).

    Going to see LOVE for the second time in just a few weeks. Definitely more to keep you interested there than "O".

    Also going to see KA this trip -- I have read a lot of positive things about it.

    Was in Vegas in March with my DW to celebrate my 40th. She took me to see LOVE. I'm not a big "Show Guy", but I loved LOVE and would absolutely see it again. Great music and great entertainment.

    Mystere is a great first one, KA I fell asleep...also drank a bit but just wasn't into that much martial arts. This trip we are seeing Viva Elvis..my sis loves Elvis and since it's closing we are going to see it.

    I have purchased all of my previous tickets from the tix4tonite booths

    Wife and I have seen Ka, Zumanity, O, and Love. We feel Ka was the best, and then split between Zumanity and Love with O being our least favorite of all but was not disappointed in the show.
