Vegas 2010: 2 Shows
Our first big show in Vegas was Viva Elvis!, which was a Cirque du Soleil-ish show based on the music of some guy named Elvis Presley. I guess with the success of the Beatles-based Love, the Cirque (and Vegas) folks decided the "based on the music of" idea would work again. Well, while the music was awesome, the show itself was more like a musical than a Cirque show. There weren't any of the great acrobatic acts of shows such as Ka, Mystere, and O. While it wasn't the worst Cirque show I've seen in Vegas (nothing will beat the Criss Angel show for badness), it was a bit of a disappointment.
