    I will give you one thought for a mid day show... Mac King (not Matt), has been a Vegas staple for more than 15 years. He is by far the best comedy magician you will ever see. His show is entertaining for all ages and is at 1 and 3pm, so it doesn't ruin your evening plans.

    Great magic tricks, engages the audience well, never more than 100 people in the crowd for a show, and he is absolutely hilarious.

    Highly recommend for anyone, and if it is free, it is a no-brainer.

    I'll second Mac King puts on a great magic show. The Tenors of Rock is another show we saw twice last year and really enjoyed. I enjoyed the Bronx Wanderers but the wife thought it was ok. Last month we saw Circus 1903 and really enjoyed it. It's unfortunate that it will close soon. We have tried to get tickets to Matt Franco the last two trips but the quota available for Diamonds was already claimed so inquire early if that is your choice.

    Bronx Wanderers was good. Saw it in December. Music and a few cool stories.

    Have seen quite a few shows on the list other than a few newer ones.
    1--Penn & Teller--terrific, but hard to get tix
    2--Tenors of Rock--AMAZING! I would go every trip, honestly.
    3--Bronx Wanderers; I am 51 & DM is 72, so more her time frame. But a number of songs she did NOT know. But there were a number I DID know. Pretty enjoyable.
    4--Mac King--our kids really enjoyed this show. Definitely entertaining--but do NOT waste diamond tix on this. You can get coupons to get in for under $15 each including a drink (DO NOT get the premixed slushies--YUK--get a beer, wine or mixed drink)
    Menopause the Musical pretty funny for us women of a certain age & older--and MAYBE their husbands.
    Legends in Concert--meh. Not great, not horrid, wouldn't go again
    XRocks & XCountry--these are Fantasy's distance cousins, with an edge to XRocks. If you like burlesque they are worth a look. Otherwise SKIP.
    We are thinking of seeing Sex Tips for a Straight Woman from a Gay Man next month. Sounds funny. Otherwise I'd go to Tenors of Rock again, EASY.

    Kkb has it right IMO

    Penn and Teller, and Tenors have been the best we have seen.

    Also to add to what KKB says about Mac King is the Diamond tickets do not come with the free drink the discounted tickets come with so if you buy a drink for the show you are better off just purchasing with a discount coupon.

    I saw The Bronx Wanderers in September and the show was phenomenal - fantastic vocals, classic songs and great energy from the band. If you like "Jersey Boys", "Frankie Valli", "Dion" etc you will have a blast at this show!

    I have seen Tenors of Rock, Mac King (2x), and X-Country.

    I would highly recommend Tenors. As has been mentioned above, Mac King is a really good show, but it's a better deal to just use the coupons that are readily available. X-Country is a very fast paced topless show in a very small venue. I thought it was well done. Have heard that X-Rocks is better but that wasn't an option when I was in Vegas.

    The one I haven't seen but plan to in March is Solid Gold Soul.
    Every time I check, they haven't had Penn & Teller tickets available at a time I could go.

    Matt Franco, without a doubt, great show. Hard to get tickets though. Saw him in December on a locals promo, tix was $54 , well worth it.

    Circus 1903 is great, and hilarious, it's also ending soon so I would see that while you can. Penn and Teller are good, drinks (even water or soda) are expensive AS HELL so I just fill up the cup you are supposed to put cards in, with water from the bathroom. Mac King is a must see tleast once, I even enjoyed Matt Franco. Murry the Magician is the biggest waste if an hour ever created, I have no clue how he got a gig anywhere, much less Vegas.

    Matt Franco was pretty good and worth using a diamond pick on. WOW was excellent and won't be on the diamond list very long.
