They’re sure to add some excitement, eccentricity  and glamour to your calendar.  

 The Best Las Vegas Shows To See In 2016:

Best Las Vegas Shows: Cirque Du Soleil

Everywhere you go, you bump into a Cirque Du Soleil show in Vegas, and it’s no wonder. Since the franchise settled in Vegas back in 1993 with Mystère, they have been growing their roster to now include eight shows. And you know what? From Criss Angel’s larger-than-life and magical experience to the musical genius of Michael Jackson and the Beatles, from the imaginative costumes and amazing acrobatics of O and KA to the highly eroticized Zumanity; whichever show you go to, you won’t regret it.

Best Las Vegas Shows: Absinthe

  • Location: Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace
  • Schedule: Tuesday – Sunday at 8:00 pm, Thursday-Saturday – additional show at 10:00 pm
  • Age limit: 18+

As one of the best shows in Las Vegas, this adults-only extravaganza is packed with burlesque acrobatics, circus acts, hard comedy and sexy topless girls. Hosted by provocateur Gazillionaire, a cabaret-style show plays out in a nine-foot diameter round stage, just a few feet from where you are sitting, inviting you to join the dream-like world of Absinthe.

Best Las Vegas Shows: Blue Man Group

  • Location: Blue Man Theater, Luxor
  • Schedule: Nightly at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm
  • Age limit: None

Blue Man Group is much more than just a music show. It’s a well thought out experience that explores universal human concerns through a powerful combination of light illusions and percussion-heavy music. It’s a kaleidoscopic display of sights and sounds everyone can enjoy.

Best Las Vegas Shows: Le Rêve

  • Location: Le Reve Theater at Wynn Las Vegas
  • Schedule: Friday-Tuesday at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm
  • Age limit: 5+

Want to know what dreams are made of? Le Rêve means “The Dream” in French and offers an amazing combination of synchronized swimmers, aerial and gymnastic acts in a round theater with an aquatic center stage. The audience is close to the stage and performers are all around, coming from every single direction, enhancing the feeling of being in a dream. And if it seems like another Cirque Du Soleil, that’s because one of their directors, Franco Dragone, set the show. What makes it different is the fact that every six months the show is re-choreographed to keep it interesting, making it one of the best shows in Vegas.

Best Las Vegas Shows: Thunder From Down Under

  • Location: Thunder From Down Under Theatre – Excalibur Hotel & Casino
  • Schedule: Every night at 9:00 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays – also at 11:00 pm.
  • Age limit: 18+

The reason we chose this is simple:. Men have the whole of Sin City at their disposal while the girls have few gems, like Thunder From Down Under, at their disposal. Guys, you gotta let them have some fun too! Your significant other will be eternally grateful. Seductive dance, cheeky humor, and ripped dudes make Thunder From Down Under the best Las Vegas show for women. 


Of course, that’s not all Vegas has to offer! Britney Spears is there, and so are Celine Dion, Carrot Top, Terry Fator and many more that did not make the list. But those that made the cut in this list will surely blow you away! Let us know what your favorite Las Vegas shows are in the comment section below.
