circus – LOVE

images1.jpgThe Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil was not a show that was easy or inexpensive to create. It never would have happened without the personal enthusiasm of George Harrison who unfortunately did not live to see the final production.

It is the hottest ticket in Vegas right now.

When I first heard of the concept, I was sceptical. I feared that the acrobatics might suffer with a focus on music.

I was wrong.

There is a trampoline act (actually 8 trampolines and a phone booth) which will freak out any trampolinist. There is an in-line skating number which will freak out any skater. And I feel the Mr. Kite swing solo is the single most shocking act in Cirque du Soleil. (Criss Angel assumed it was an illusion.)

My review: Book tickets to LOVE on-line up to 4 months in advance and plan your next holiday to Las Vegas to see LOVE.

Actually, LOVE is still in creation though it may be finalized soon. It’s hard to imagine any other kind of performance in history anywhere having had so many great visuals.

I had forgotten just how brilliant and innovative the Beatles music had been. And some of the remix versions are far, far superior. LOVE samples 130 songs to create 27 musical pieces. The CD goes on sale in November. In the show, each seat is fitted with three speakers including the headrest.

short videoclips are available on the official LOVE webpage
