    I've never seen many shows in Vegas, mainly because I didn't want to take the time from gambling! 10 years ago I had at least 6 visits to The Mirage, and never saw the volcano! I guess that tells you something.
    This solo trip (Aug. 16-20) I'd like to go to a show - trying to have a more well-rounded trip!
    I'm a 72 year old woman with a lot of energy and a bit of naughtiness in me.
    Any suggestions? I'm staying at Aria.

    Thunder Down Under is always entertaining.

    Carrot Top is very funny; I've been multiple times since reluctantly going the first time.

    Raiding the Rock Vault is also a great show.

    Absinthe is naughty and fun.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Breanna. The Rock show and Absinthe look good. I bought the real stuff Absinthe in Prague which makes the show more attractive:licklips:

    What do you want to see?

    I have been around the world many times. The best times were always the spontaneous ones that just seemed to pop up out of nowhere. The planned fun was just ok. not really that memorable.

    the real fun is where you make it.

    Diana Ross and Def Leppard would make my list.

    Maybe visit the Tix4tonight booth - the day you are feeling like a show and see what discounts they have.

    Another vote for Absinthe as long as you don't offend easily.

    My mom went and saw Menopause the Musical when she was close to your age and loved it!

    There are so many that would be good.

    Trying to figure out what you would like is very hard.

    LOVE is our favorite - 10+ times.
    Carrot top is great.

    Since you are at Aria...something not too far might be worth checking out.

    Park MGM does have some shows, irregular schedule.
    Aria has none.
    Bellagio has "O". Very nice show, but some say it can get sleepy. We loved it - once.
    Absinthe at CP is fun - a bit "naughty", but good.

    I think you may like Penn and Teller and likewise they may like you when they chat with some people outside after the show.
    Anyway have a great trip!

    I was going to say if you haven't seen a Cirque show, then see the original first, "Mystere." But since you like the Beatles, you should see "Love." If you like MJ's music despite whatever has come up, I liked "One" better than "Love." Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, and Jennifer Lopez put on good shows, but those are periodical (I've only seen Gwen and I really liked it. I've only heard about the others being good.). Lady Gaga has a show coming. I liked the Broadway shows in the past, but none of the current ones interest me.

    I love Michael Jackson! And I love Gaga, but I don't think she's there when I am. I'll decide when I get there! Lots of great suggestions! Thank you all:love:

    If you opt for a Cirq show, and can lock in the date, going to the cirq website often has much better prices.
