    Looking to go to one show in Vegas. Cost is not really an issue. Thinking about "O" but wanted to get others opinions. Also is it worth it to get the expensive seats, or would you go with the cheaper seats?

    Thanks in Advance!

    My favourite is also O, we opted for the expensive seats (but it was the night of our 10th wedding anniversary so it was a treat) and we thought it was well worth it.

    I've seen Blue Man Group, then 3 Cirque du Soleil: Mystere, Ka and O. O was my favorite, we saw it last fall. I was too cheap to spring for the good seats, and opted for cheap seats. I think there is a category for partially obstructed and I wouldn't get those, but the next level up was just fine.

    Had dinner at Todd English's Olives before the show and really enjoyed it too.

    Cirque du Soleil's Love at the Mirage. I've also seen Zumanity and Mystere by Cirque, but I enjoyed this one by far the most. The combination of the acrobatics and the music was amazing. There's also so much going on, that you could probably see it multiple times and get a completely different experience out of it each time. I just saw it in December, and will be back next month and am thinking of seeing it again.

    It'd be Love, or Ka.

    O nearly put me to sleep. It was pretty though.

    I love Olives!

    I've never seen any of the CDS shows in Vegas, but if I had to pick one, I'd pick Love. I hear it's just cool.

    Ka is my vote. A very close second would be "O"

    ETA I think it is definitely worth the best seats. Was in 2nd row for O and 10th for Ka.

    We liked Mystique much better than O. DH really enjoyed Love, but I haven't seen it. With cirque shows I like being back, and up a little bit. Easier to take it all in.

    Blue Man group is fun. We also Loved Danny Gans. For a cheap goofy show, we liked the one at Statosphere too. I forget what it is called.

    It DID put me to sleep. Most expensive nap I ever took...:faint:

    I would go see Mystere - I still think it's best show in Vegas.

    If you have any interest at all in the Beatles, I would suggest you go see Love. I "LOVED" it.;) It may not be worthwhile to a non-beatles fan though. I would suggest sitting in the middle at any Cirque show. That way, you can see both the aerial and ground acts.

    While I was in Vegas, I heard tons of raves about Mystere. We didn't have enough time to check it out though. That one is on my list of future must-dos

    We did see Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. It is a shortened version of the original production, but very well done.

    There is SO much to see. It all depends on your tastes.:goodvibes

    Im all old school. I love seeing "An Evening at La Cage". Don't know why, but it just screams Vegas to me.

    American Superstars?

    ---

    Personally? Bette Midler if she's performing while you're there. She rotates with Elton John and Cher.

    Also, George Wallace.
