The Sirens of TI is now closed. This was one of our favorite free Las Vegas Shows. We are really sad to see it go.
In the place of the Sirens of TI show will be a new three-story, 48,000-square-foot retail space. The opening of the shops is planned for the fall of 2014
Here is our original Sirens of TI review:
The Sirens of TI is a must-see for the first time Vegas Trip or if you have not seen it. You have to get there early because the area fills up quickly and then you will not have a place to stand. Closer is better. <br><br>
The Sirens of TI begins with a 17th century clash between a group of beautiful, tempting sirens and a band of renegade pirates. With their mesmerizing and powerful song the Sirens lure the pirates to their cove, stir up a tempest strong enough to sink a ship, and transform Sirens’ Cove into a 21st century party. Experience music, dance, excitement and seduction – nightly at 7:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. in Sirens’ Cove at the front entrance of Treasure Island Hotel and Casino.<br><br>
Note: VIP viewing for Treasure Island guests. For the safety of all our guests and patrons, strollers are not permitted at the Sirens of TI show.
Five-time Grammy Award winner and hip-hop superstar Cee Lo Green is definitely headed to the Strip with a run of residency shows this fall featuring his flamboyant character “Loberace,” according to the Las Vegas Sun.
This fall at the big Planet Hollywood theater (Theater for the Performing Arts), Cee Lo will be doing a run of residency shows along the time period of September or so, but will have to work around The Voice’s TV schedule. We look forward to seeing it!
If you’ve never seen a Jabbawockeez show, you are in for a treat. The Jabbawockeez, who recently celebrated their one-year anniversary at the Monte Carlo, wear expressionless white masks and gloves to guide you through the music and give a great visual interpretation of it through some fantastic dance moves and a variety of other aural intricacies. Their latest show, MUS.I.C., employs acrobatic dance moves as well as a storyline or backing story for their music, making the audience feel as if they are a part of the action. For more information, check out their site.
The next time you’re thinking about what shows in Vegas to see, go with a choice 50 million people worldwide have made–The Lion King at Mandalay Bay. It is a winner of over 70 awards, including a Tony and Grammy. The classic story of Simba trying to avenge his father’s death and defeat evil brother Mufasa is told with flair and passion. Tickets are more expensive than the average Vegas show, but if you search hard for a good deal, you can find it and be more than satisfied that it’s worth it. It will close on December 31, 2011, so time is of the essence. 50 million people can’t be wrong! For more information on the Lion King, including show information and ticket prices, click here.
For the Vegas iheartradio festival, a sold-out crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena witnessed the likes of Sublime with Rome, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Sting, Rascall Flats, Nicki Minaj, Black Eyed Peas, Jay-Z, and Steven Tyler, among others.
It was a study in pop music and pop culture of the current generation, with some older artists thrown in for good measure. Lady Gaga headlined the weekend, dedicated to the revamp of the iheartradio music application. Reviews from the weekend came in at everything from “I loved it!” to, “I don’t know…” so we’re betting on that it was a good concert. It was sold out, and we’d be surprised if more of these events don’t spring up, given the success. An estimated 10 million people accessed the show through the iheartradio web site, and 25,000 more showed up through the festival (capacity).
Absinthe, known for its language and great risky performances, will return to Roman Plaza at Caesars Palace beginning October 21. Most if not all of the original cast, including ringleader The Gazillionaire, will be returning. According to the Las Vegas Sun:
““Absinthe” will be staged Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 and 10 p.m. and Wednesdays and Sundays at 8 p.m. (dark Mondays). During its reopening week, the schedule is Oct. 21-23 at 8 and 10 p.m. Tickets are $79, plus tax, with a VIP package offered at $109, plus tax (the VIP package includes early entrance into the Speigeltent for special reserved seating and one drink).”
Fantasy at the Luxor celebrated its 12th year in operation with a big party and new calendar. With it came the news that the show is the number one topless show in Vegas for the year. The majority of their dance numbers, billed under the slogan “Vegas’ Biggest Tease,” are topless. Comedian Sean E. Cooper also lightens the mood a bit, so you can rest assured you get a full show.
Cirque du Soleil has become one of Vegas’ most popular acts, but what happens when you mix the sin aspect of Sin City with the Cirque? Zumanity, the Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil. Zumanity explores human sexuality in all its forms, and the performers put on quite a show! It is very seductive; part burlesque and part cabaret. Not for the inhibited, as acrobatics and pushing the limits win out here!
TheTropicana is hosting a celebration of Mexican Independence day (not to be confused with Cinco de Mayo) in the form of Mariachi USA Fiesta, a 90-minute Mariachi music review that has played to sold out audiences at the Hollywood Bowl for 22 years. It is scheduled at the Nikki Beach Club, which seems to be attracting all sorts of great acts since its renovation. A good selection of both modern and traditional music will keep you dancing the entire night. For more information, head to Mariachi USA Fiesta and be sure to check out our great deal on a hotel there to complete your stay in style.
