No need for us to be modest: when it comes to stage shows and musical residencies, Las Vegas leads the entire planet. (After all, they don’t call our largest metro the Entertainment Capital of the World for nothin’.) Prepare to have your senses absolutely dazzled by the best acrobats and movement artists in the world in several Cirque du Soleil shows, some of the most over-the-top stage productions ever conceived—not to mention actually brought to life. Whether you’re after dizzying visual stories that seem plucked straight from a dreamworld or imagination-defying feats set to the timeless music of the Beatles or Michael Jackson, you haven’t experienced Las Vegas until you’ve witnessed a Cirque show. Meanwhile, on major stages all across town, Las Vegas carries the fire started by Elvis and the Rat Pack to ever bolder new heights with musical residencies by the world’s biggest singers and performers, with the kinds of shows that make music lovers swoon for life.
