10 Iconic Las Vegas Shows You Won’t Want to Miss

The Las Vegas Strip is home to some of the greatest shows in the world – from magicians to acrobatics, adult entertainment, musicals, concerts, mindreaders, comedic acts, dancers, art shows, and much more. 

There truly is a little something for everyone in Las Vegas.

Some can be as short as 30 minutes, while others can be as long as a few hours. Some are designed to blow your mind, while others aim to make you laugh. Some are rather cheap, while others are expensive. 

The question is – what type of experience are you interested in?

It’s a difficult question to answer because there are so many options – most of which are located on the Strip itself. Don’t worry – we’re going to highlight 10 of the most iconic, must-see Las Vegas show tickets. 

10. Cirque du Soleil

Location: various locations along the Las Vegas Strip (see below)

Tickets: usually between $50 and $100 per person

Cirque du Soleil is perhaps one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas – if not the entire world. Their shows largely center on the acrobatic arts, but there are six different ones with unique backstories: 

  • The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage Hotel and Casino
  • KÀ at the MGM Grand
  • “O” at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino
  • Cirque du Soleil Mad Apple at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino
  • Michael Jackson ONE at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino
  • Mystère at Treasure Island

It’s one of those shows that will have you in awe the entire time – we’re talking jaw on the floor, can’t believe your eyes, mind is blown, and having a hard time understanding how any of this is possible. 

9. Tournament of Kings

Location: inside the Excalibur Hotel & Casino

Tickets: between $40 and $70 per person

If you’re looking to sit down and enjoy a tasty meal while you enjoy a medieval, live-action production – then Tournament of Kings is right up your alley. You’ll get to eat with your hands and watch knights fight.

The show takes place in a 900-seat theater-in-the-round arena split into eight different sections – Ireland, Romania, Norway, Spain, Austria, Hungary, France, and Dragon. Will you be on the winning side? 

8. Blue Man Group 

Location: inside the Luxor Hotel & Casino

Tickets: between $40 and $200 per person

There’s a reason why more than 50 million people have already experienced what the Blue Man Group has to offer. Its combination of sound, comedy, and the unexpected is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

The Blue Man Group is designed for all ages, languages, and cultures – after all, they don’t say much! They also offer VIP seating for those who want a more personal and up-close experience with the group.

7. Awakening

Location: inside the Wynn Las Vegas

Tickets: between $100 and $200

The Awakening Theater is considered one of the most technologically immersive theaters ever designed – featuring a 60-foot, 360-degree prismatic Las Vegas stage that undulates and expands as the characters move. 

According to the official website, the show is a culmination of three masterminds – legendary producer Bernie Yuman, producer/director Baz Halpin, and Curry, the award-winning puppet master and producer.

6. Criss Angel MINDFREAK

Location: inside the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino

Tickets: between $50 and $100

Criss Angel is one of the greatest illusionists of all-time, and his show is unlike any other on the Las Vegas Strip. His brand-new 90-minute live spectacular is sure to have everyone questioning reality. 

The show boasts more than 75 of Criss’ signature illusions – including his revolutionary levitation trick, which is hailed as “the greatest illusion of all time” by many experts today. You won’t want to miss it!

5. David Copperfield

Location: inside MGM Grand

Tickets: between $75 and $125

Speaking of illusionists, let’s not forget about the legendary David Copperfield – hailed as one of the greatest illusionists of his generation. Even at 67 years old, Copperfield finds a way to amaze you. 

I mean, we’re talking about the man who levitated over the Grand Canyon, walked through the Great Wall of China, escaped from the Alcatraz prison, and even made the Statue of Liberty vanish – then reappear!

4. Absinthe

Location: inside Caesars Palace

Ticket Prices: between $100 and $350

Absinthe is the ‘only in Vegas’ type of show you expected to see in the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World.’ It’s a clever mix of acrobatics, a cabaret, and adult humor – even being hailed as ‘the #1 greatest show in Las Vegas history’ by many. 

Guests enjoy an 80-minute performance that many consider unapologetically raunchy and undeniably hilarious. You must be 18 years old to enjoy the experience, so don’t expect this to be a family event. 

3. Carrot Top

Location: inside the Luxor Hotel & Casino

Tickets: starting at $40, but as high as $75 per person

Carrot Top is and has been one of the most iconic stand up comedy acts in Las Vegas – if not the entire world. His set will take you on a journey filled with crazy props, wacky inventions, and corny jokes. 

He’s the same curly-haired, red-headed one-man circus that he was 20 years ago, when he first started in Vegas, but he does an excellent job of mixing in jokes about pop culture, music, and current events. 

2. Jabbawockeez 

Location: inside MGM Grand

Tickets: between $40 and $100 per person

The Jabbawockeez are consistently rated as the ‘Best Family Show’ and ‘Best All Ages Show.’ Their synchronized dances are some of the most complex in the world – you won’t believe what you’re seeing.

One of the things people love most about the show is the wide range of musical genres they cover. They take you on a journey through music and dance, which makes way for an unforgettable performance. 

1. The Mentalist Gerry McCambridge

Location: inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Tickets: between $50 and $125 per person

Do you like comedy? Do you like magic? Do you like mind-reading? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those three questions – or even all three of them – then Gerry McCambridge is a must-see show in Las Vegas. 

Known for getting into the minds of his audience members, McCambridge can tell you everything you need to know about yourself – including your name, hometown, anniversary, and your wildest wishes.
