Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil brings another incredible production to the Las Vegas Strip at Aria Resort & Casino. Featuring a 70-member cast of world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and high wire and trapeze artists, Zarkana amazes audiences as a story of revival unfolds (and flips, and jumps, and spins, and.. OK, you get it) before your eyes.Set in a zany alternate universe where bizarre meets arcana (Boom! The phonic parents of Zarkana), a wildly eclectic collection of forgotten circus characters and their jaw-dropping talents explore otherworldly scenarios as their washed up extravaganza comes back to life.Tucked into the surprisingly intimate 1,800-seat Aria Theater, all audience members will feel immersed in the experience… especially when the characters burst through the theater’s imaginary fourth wall to soar above the seats. With comic interjections by the show’s two clowns and an on-stage audience of ghostly members of circus’ past who mingle with the audience throughout the production, you might just feel as if you’re a part of the show yourself…sans the uber bendy and flippy parts, which we will leave to the pros (obviously because groin injuries are not ideal).Among the show’s daring acts, audience members will hold their breath while observing the “Wheel of Death,” a high wire act complete with a swinging pendulum ball of raging fire (you know, since performing tricks on a cable a couple dozen feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough), a flying trapeze routine, in addition to an impressive ladder balancing act. However, you will have plenty of time to dry your sweaty palms and settle your anxiety when taking in beautiful (and less life-threatening) acts of endurance and strength when taking in the aerial straps, hand balancing, sand painting, flag manipulation and juggling acts among others as well.And since every Cirque du Soleil show is performed with the musical aid of a live band, audiences will enjoy an all-encompassing musical experience with a lead singer who has seemingly range-less vocals that hit even the most daunting of notes.Similarly, in addition to the production’s 12-song soundtrack, there are intricate set changes that transform the stage to complement every act. Multiple layers of LED screens create stunning visuals that transform from an old circus, to outer space, to a snake-infested jungle, to a spider’s web and others scenes that add to the show’s unique visual experience.But back to the audience involvement, we will not tell you exactly what happens but we will let you know that those clowns we previously mentioned take a little stroll in the audience during the show and do not return to the stage alone. If you’re a female sitting in the first few rows, you just may be selected to join the two comical creatures on stage to help demonstrate their electric chair…let's just say that sparks definitely fly.Basically, in true Cirque du Soleil fashion, “Zarkana” serves audience members a visual treat with seemingly impossible physical feats that blur the line between reality and a wild realm of imagination. So, get your glasses, eye drops, tape… whatever will help you keep your eyes open and not blink because this is one production that you will want to catch every second of.

Dec. 4, 1956.In a rock 'n' roll moment so surreal you'd swear it was scripted for a movie, music superstars Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash came together in the afternoon for an impromptu jam session at Sun Record Studios in Memphis.It was a moment that should never have happened. Presley, who had recorded for Sun Records, was now an RCA artist. Johnny Cash had just stopped by to listen to Carl Perkins' recording session (or pick up a check, depending on what version of the legend you believe). Jerry Lee Lewis was a relatively unknown performer outside of Memphis and was there just to provide some piano pizzaaz on Perkins' recording.It was a one-in-a-million chance that these four rock 'n' roll superstars would meet and become, for a few hours, the Million Dollar Quartet.More than 50 years later, the moment has been been musically brought to life in the hit Broadway show "Million Dollar Quartet" now playing at Harrahs Las Vegas.We know exactly what was sung on that fateful December day at Sun Records because Jack Clement, the engineer for Perkins' session, recorded it. The session mainly featured gospel songs, but also a number of country and western songs by Bill Monroe, Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow and Gene Autry. Elvis' recent (at the time) hits "Don't Be Cruel" and "Love Me Tender," as well as Lewis' song "End of the Road.""Million Dollar Quartet" the show takes a little more license, using that famous recording session as a springboard to imagine what it would sound like if Presley, Cash, Perkins and Lewis had the benefit of time to sing their greatest hits.Featured songs in the show include "Blue Suede Shoes," "Real Wild Child," "Who DO You Love?," "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line," "Hound Dog, "Great Balls of Fire," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "See You Later, Alligator," "Riders in the Sky," and more.The show gives a nod to the original session with performances of "Peace In The Valley," "Brown Eyed Handsome Man," and "Down By The Riverside."It was 25 years before the recordings of that December day were rediscovered and released. And another six years after that before the complete jam session was made available to the public."Million Dollar Quartet" ensures that Dec. 4, 1956, will be a day you'll never forget.

The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the sensational cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito,  who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling musci groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is a captivating experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

Get ready for an R&B flashback in the flashiest of ways as Boyz II Men takes you on a soulful journey with a collection of their hits from years past, a sample of their new music, an a capella quartet demonstration as well as an energetic sample of some of Motown classics.Boyz II Men have officially joined the ranks of many entertainment greats including Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and Guns N' Roses with an extended residency in Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel and Casino.The four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B group (now composed of baritone Shawn Stockman and tenors Nathan Morris and Wanya Morris) kicks off their headlining show with the popular "Beautiful Woman," accompanied by an energizing full band made up of a drummer, a bass and electric guitarist, a trumpeter, a trombonist and a saxophonist who performs with them throughout the show.Smoothly transitioning into an upbeat Motown segment after performing various fan favorites such as "On Bended Knee," the three-man group exits the stage as a video reel of their accomplishments and love for Motown awe the audience across the theater's three central video display screens. With just enough time for a wardrobe change, the men re-emerge onto the stage, only this time clad in dazzling gold coats and Motown classic black and white, polished loafers opposed to their opening ensembles of sleek black, sequined-lapel suits.With a brief pre-recorded explanation from all three group members of their favorite Motown inspirations explaining how Motown is "...a sound that has basically shaped how we listen to music today," the group takes to their microphones belting out their revived rendition of The Temptations' 1965 classic "My Girl."With synchronized choreography and jubilant energy, Boyz II Men do what they do best and bring the audience to their feet encouraging their fans to dance and sing along...and without hesitation, seemingly every onlooker becomes a part of the show as the soul of the performance resonates throughout the crowd while they dance and sing along with the stars to several other Motown favorites including Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' "The Tracks of My Tears."Following the Motown segment is a hilarious YouTube video reel of Boyz II Men fans singing (and...let's be honest...attempting to sing) a variety of the group's hits all while the stage is swiftly transformed into a street scene of their hometown, Philadelphia. Complete with a bench, a sneaker-strewn lamp post and a few trash cans, the Boyz include their backup singer, Mark Nelson, and give the band a break as they indulge the audience in their a capella quartet set.Again changing clothes, the feel becomes even more hometown as the singers are dressed in jeans, chucks and red sequined, "P" (for Philadelphia, of course) adorned letterman sweaters, the audience gets a feel of how the group came to be long before they were ever famous; the singers performed on street corners and subway platforms in this fashion before working their way backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert in 1989 and impressing Michael Bivins, who offered them a deal.Nearing the show's end, a guitar jam session that includes the band's guitarist as well as Stockman takes place before the highly anticipated performance of "I'll Make Love to You." Having won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for this chart-topping love track, not only do the fans know every word of the song, but they know that this is their chance in the show to get up close to the crooning performers.As soon as the first chords strike this song into its first verse, each singer gathers an armful of long-stem red roses and the women of the auditorium crowd the front of the stage in hopes of receiving a piece of the bouquets that the singers' ever so gently toss out to their admirers.But even though it is during this song that the group becomes very involved with the audience members, this is not the only interaction that the group makes with the audience. Throughout the show, the group engages with the audience on the floor level even selecting women to dance with at various parts of the performance. Making it a very personal and humble performance, perhaps this is why these men have retained such a strong following seeing that they truly value their fans' show experience. (Insider tip: If you want a chance to dance with, shake hands with or maybe even get a hug from one of the Boyz II Men group members during the show, try to book your ticket for the first few front rows.)Concluding the show with the audience on their feet, the ever-lively, harmonizing group shakes their fans' hands, gives out some hugs and sends off sincere waves to the back of the house before the final curtain closes.  In the beginning of the group's Mirage residency, Vice President of Hotel Operations Franz Kallao remarked, "All of us at The Mirage are excited to welcome Boyz II Men to our resort, giving guests the opportunity to experience one of the best R&B groups in the music industry," and clearly that welcome is still alive and well as Boyz II Men remain one of the best R&B groups to date.

You don't need to pack any bags for this excursion, but you may want to wear some comfortable shoes for toe-tapping."Let us take you down to an old dirt road," says a pre-recorded announcement before impersonators portraying some of the biggest names in country music along with up-and-coming acts take the stage in Country Superstars. This show gives fans plenty to write home about. Country Superstars has a concert-style format, showcasing a main performer singing with a live five-piece band. The show features tribute artists singing your favorite songs and emulating an uncanny likeness to the real performers.Country Superstars has a rotating lineup of tribute artists. On the night the show was attended the headlining tribute acts were Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks. The performers do an incredible job of re-creating the look, sound and feel of the artists they portray. Each one performed a selection of greatest hit songs with all live music. There are no backing tracks or lip synching in this revue.The show opens with McEntire's performance of "Turn on the Radio." She also acts as the show's spunky and sassy host. Things get a little "Strange" before McEntire belts out you can "Consider Me Gone."Wearing his signature black cowboy hat, the tribute artist portraying Tim McGraw does fans justice with his rendition of songs including "Real Good Man," "Something Like That (A Heart Don't Forget)" and "Down on the Farm." The performer is a real "tall glass of water," as McEntire puts it. He gives fans, especially women in the audience, plenty to cheer about while he's on stage.Next, Brooks takes audiences by storm with his performance of "The Thunder Rolls," "Friends in Low Places" and "Rodeo." Part tribute show, part concert, Country Superstars celebrates music from the past, present and future. Get ready to get down with the best in country music at this revue.Note: This show features a rotating cast of country superstars, not a guaranteed lineup.

Las Vegas was built on pure, raw talent. That's producer David Saxe's stance and the concept behind his creation VEGAS! The Show at Saxe Theater. The show celebrates iconic moments from the city's rich entertainment history through the performances of 40 singers and dancers and 11, on-stage musicians.“VEGAS! The Show” opens with a custodian named Ernie who works at Las Vegas’ Neon Museum - a graveyard for the once luminous signs of Vegas day’s past. Clad in a blue jumpsuit, Ernie reminisces about some of the most memorable entertainers who played Vegas and how the times have changed since then. Among the retired signs that once decorated the Strip include signs for the Glass Pool Inn, the Silver Slipper and the Sands among others.However, with the earnest wish to treat the audience to a special night of how entertainment used to be, Ernie announces, "For one night only, we want you to suspend reality and join us on a journey back in time to experience some of the greatest entertainers who ever played Vegas,” and before we know it, the stage is transformed into a classic showgirl venue.Along with picturesque Vegas showgirls, men wearing tuxedos and women in gowns take the stage for a glamorous song and dance number choreographed by Tiger Martina."We want to share with you the moments and the memories of that gleaming jewel in the desert," says Ernie who both acts as the master of ceremonies and performs as various entertainers from the past.The scene changes to a swingin' number with Louis Prima and Keely Smith before transitioning to the 1960s when the Rat Pack played the Copa Room at the Sands. Throughout the show the set is constantly evolving into a new and exciting scene with dazzling costumes, incredible singing and contemporary choreography. Each scene represents a vintage Vegas act, but Martina's high-energy choreography, paired with innovative production elements, portrays iconic entertainers of years past with a new twist.For example, Sammy Davis Jr.'s "The Candy Man" starts with a performer singing the song solo before being joined by a parade of showgirls. Dressed in fitted outfits with silver ruffles that say "Good & Plenty" "Almond Joy" and other candy names, the dancers throw out chocolate and other goodies to people in the audience during the song for a pretty sweet number.Additionally the “Luck be a Lady” number is highlighted with one female lead dancer who dominates the stage of men as her suggestive dance moves seduce luck upon the onlooking men.Bu as soon as the last note is hit, the scene quickly changes to another memorable Vegas act. While iconic entertainers are represented in the show, the performers aren't tribute artists. This is most apparent during the Elvis numbers.Most people probably expect to see a white jumpsuit and a dark pompadour with side burns when it comes to Elvis, but not in this show."Yeah I know, I'm blond," says the performer representing Elvis.He jokes with the audience, letting people know that what he and the other performers are doing isn't about emulating every aspect of famous entertainers. Instead they're celebrating the performers and what they might be like if there were still around today… but still with excellent talent at that."The heart of the city is gambling but the soul is music," says Ernie before performers representing Sonny and Cher appear on stage singing "I Got You Babe."And truly embodying the elements of a variety show, the production includes other acts such as an amazing and hilarious hula hoop act, talking parrots, and a high-flying balance/ acrobatic act.Toward the end of the show, the audience is treated to an Elton John tribute. A performer wearing a white suit and large glasses takes a seat at a white piano situated on stage in front of the curtain. As he sings "Rocket Man," video footage of vintage Vegas is displayed on the curtains. Some of the images are of the original acts that were just performed on stage, while others depict casinos in Vegas that have been imploded over the years. The video clip reminds everyone that while the landscape may have changed, the city is still home to fantastic entertainment with glitz and glamour that can only be found in Vegas.

Legends in Concert at Harrahs
A night to rememberStaff ReportWith more than 25 years of success on the Las Vegas Strip, Legends in Concert has become a mecca for tribute artists around the world. The show features only the creme de la creme of performers who pay tribute to the most iconic entertainers in the world.If you missed seeing the real Elvis when he was still alive or another favorite entertainer the last time they were in Vegas, Legends in Concert is the next best thing. Aside from the holiday show Legends in Concert has an alternating cast so you never know who you are going to see grace the stage next. On the night the show was attended, Jay Leno, Barry White, Dolly Parton, Madonna, The Temptations and Elvis performed. It's the only show where you can see a line up of some of the best talent in the world from both the individuals as impersonators and the characters that they become for the night.Jay Leno, played by Marcel Forestieri, is the show's emcee. He opens with a few jokes inspired by current events, much like the real Leno, before announcing the first performer, Barry White.Barry White, played by Jourdan Carroll, enters the stage singing "You're the First, the Last, My Everything." Carroll has an uncanny resemblance to the real White from his beard and smile to his velvety smooth, deep and soulful voice."Your sweetness is my weakness," says Carroll to the audience before performing his last song, "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe."Along with Carroll, there are several dancers on stage who add to the show's signature of featuring only the crème de la crème. They accompany all of the entertainers in the show and do constant costume changes into different outfits themed by each performer and their songs.A spunky Dolly Parton, played by Sandy Anderson, is the next act. She displays all of the songstress's notable assets, from her big blonde hair to her red lips and of course, her voice.After her first song she walks out into the audience to have a little flirtatious fun with some of the male guests before singing, "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That." It is a fun, upbeat number with cowboy dancers in tight white jeans and cowboy hats, a sure hit for women in the audience."Like a Prayer," starts and Madonna, played by Coty Alexander, enters the stage wearing a black cloak, but it is not long before the cloak is removed to reveal the well- known cone bust ensemble and high blonde pony tail.For "Like A Virgin" she wears a white veil and brings a guy from the audience on stage. By the end of the song he is left with ruffled hair and needing to straighten and de-fog his glasses. A medley of Madonna's greatest hits follows where an ensemble of dancers joins her on stage for a high energy number where they really "strike a pose."The Temptations, played by Nathaniel Evans Radcliff, Talmadge Pearsall, Gregory Dean Lee, Ritchie Stanley and Reginald Reed, take the stage wearing sparkling purple suits and singing their greatest hits. They have rhythm and soul and the signature dance movements of the Temptations that they demonstrate in perfect sync with one another.As the hits keep coming, the audience becomes increasingly impassioned by the performers and before you know it everyone is singing along and dancing in their seats.Elvis Presley, played by Matt Lewis is the final act. He first comes out wearing an outfit that represents the entertainer earlier on in his career. Lewis' voice sounds so remarkably like the real Elvis that even the most devout fans could be fooled.For "A Little Less Converstion" he wears a black suit with a rhinestone trim that dazzles the audience along with his pelvis thrusting and smooth sounding voice.He stops singing for a moment to say, "Thank you, thank you very much." His speaking voice and mannerisms are everything you would expect from the real Elvis.Finally what everyone is waiting for, Lewis appears on stage wearing the iconic white and jewel-studded jumpsuit that the original performer sported when he first came to Vegas in 1969. More great Elvis hits are performed and Lewis really cuts loose, embracing all of the passion and vigor of the real performer."Viva Las Vegas," includes beautiful showgirls in dazzling white and silver costumes and a flashing neon Elvis sign. It is an exciting spectacular that is the epitome of everything Vegas.Legends in Concert is a fun opportunity to see legendary performers on stage again in their prime singing and dancing in the same way that first made you a fan.

Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil brings another incredible production to the Las Vegas Strip at Aria Resort & Casino. Featuring a 70-member cast of world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and high wire and trapeze artists, Zarkana amazes audiences as a story of revival unfolds (and flips, and jumps, and spins, and.. OK, you get it) before your eyes.Set in a zany alternate universe where bizarre meets arcana (Boom! The phonic parents of Zarkana), a wildly eclectic collection of forgotten circus characters and their jaw-dropping talents explore otherworldly scenarios as their washed up extravaganza comes back to life.Tucked into the surprisingly intimate 1,800-seat Aria Theater, all audience members will feel immersed in the experience… especially when the characters burst through the theater’s imaginary fourth wall to soar above the seats. With comic interjections by the show’s two clowns and an on-stage audience of ghostly members of circus’ past who mingle with the audience throughout the production, you might just feel as if you’re a part of the show yourself…sans the uber bendy and flippy parts, which we will leave to the pros (obviously because groin injuries are not ideal).Among the show’s daring acts, audience members will hold their breath while observing the “Wheel of Death,” a high wire act complete with a swinging pendulum ball of raging fire (you know, since performing tricks on a cable a couple dozen feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough), a flying trapeze routine, in addition to an impressive ladder balancing act. However, you will have plenty of time to dry your sweaty palms and settle your anxiety when taking in beautiful (and less life-threatening) acts of endurance and strength when taking in the aerial straps, hand balancing, sand painting, flag manipulation and juggling acts among others as well.And since every Cirque du Soleil show is performed with the musical aid of a live band, audiences will enjoy an all-encompassing musical experience with a lead singer who has seemingly range-less vocals that hit even the most daunting of notes.Similarly, in addition to the production’s 12-song soundtrack, there are intricate set changes that transform the stage to complement every act. Multiple layers of LED screens create stunning visuals that transform from an old circus, to outer space, to a snake-infested jungle, to a spider’s web and others scenes that add to the show’s unique visual experience.But back to the audience involvement, we will not tell you exactly what happens but we will let you know that those clowns we previously mentioned take a little stroll in the audience during the show and do not return to the stage alone. If you’re a female sitting in the first few rows, you just may be selected to join the two comical creatures on stage to help demonstrate their electric chair…let's just say that sparks definitely fly.Basically, in true Cirque du Soleil fashion, “Zarkana” serves audience members a visual treat with seemingly impossible physical feats that blur the line between reality and a wild realm of imagination. So, get your glasses, eye drops, tape… whatever will help you keep your eyes open and not blink because this is one production that you will want to catch every second of.
 

I want to buy 5 tickets for Zarkana show. I can i be sure that all the tickets will be together? thank you

yes I purchased 2 tickets and they were together.
try to get in the middle not at the front as so much to see, we had row O 1 & 2 and the view was great, N or M row would be good to.

Get ready for an R&B flashback in the flashiest of ways as Boyz II Men takes you on a soulful journey with a collection of their hits from years past, a sample of their new music, an a capella quartet demonstration as well as an energetic sample of some of Motown classics.Boyz II Men have officially joined the ranks of many entertainment greats including Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and Guns N' Roses with an extended residency in Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel and Casino.The four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B group (now composed of baritone Shawn Stockman and tenors Nathan Morris and Wanya Morris) kicks off their headlining show with the popular "Beautiful Woman," accompanied by an energizing full band made up of a drummer, a bass and electric guitarist, a trumpeter, a trombonist and a saxophonist who performs with them throughout the show.Smoothly transitioning into an upbeat Motown segment after performing various fan favorites such as "On Bended Knee," the three-man group exits the stage as a video reel of their accomplishments and love for Motown awe the audience across the theater's three central video display screens. With just enough time for a wardrobe change, the men re-emerge onto the stage, only this time clad in dazzling gold coats and Motown classic black and white, polished loafers opposed to their opening ensembles of sleek black, sequined-lapel suits.With a brief pre-recorded explanation from all three group members of their favorite Motown inspirations explaining how Motown is "...a sound that has basically shaped how we listen to music today," the group takes to their microphones belting out their revived rendition of The Temptations' 1965 classic "My Girl."With synchronized choreography and jubilant energy, Boyz II Men do what they do best and bring the audience to their feet encouraging their fans to dance and sing along...and without hesitation, seemingly every onlooker becomes a part of the show as the soul of the performance resonates throughout the crowd while they dance and sing along with the stars to several other Motown favorites including Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' "The Tracks of My Tears."Following the Motown segment is a hilarious YouTube video reel of Boyz II Men fans singing (and...let's be honest...attempting to sing) a variety of the group's hits all while the stage is swiftly transformed into a street scene of their hometown, Philadelphia. Complete with a bench, a sneaker-strewn lamp post and a few trash cans, the Boyz include their backup singer, Mark Nelson, and give the band a break as they indulge the audience in their a capella quartet set.Again changing clothes, the feel becomes even more hometown as the singers are dressed in jeans, chucks and red sequined, "P" (for Philadelphia, of course) adorned letterman sweaters, the audience gets a feel of how the group came to be long before they were ever famous; the singers performed on street corners and subway platforms in this fashion before working their way backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert in 1989 and impressing Michael Bivins, who offered them a deal.Nearing the show's end, a guitar jam session that includes the band's guitarist as well as Stockman takes place before the highly anticipated performance of "I'll Make Love to You." Having won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for this chart-topping love track, not only do the fans know every word of the song, but they know that this is their chance in the show to get up close to the crooning performers.As soon as the first chords strike this song into its first verse, each singer gathers an armful of long-stem red roses and the women of the auditorium crowd the front of the stage in hopes of receiving a piece of the bouquets that the singers' ever so gently toss out to their admirers.But even though it is during this song that the group becomes very involved with the audience members, this is not the only interaction that the group makes with the audience. Throughout the show, the group engages with the audience on the floor level even selecting women to dance with at various parts of the performance. Making it a very personal and humble performance, perhaps this is why these men have retained such a strong following seeing that they truly value their fans' show experience. (Insider tip: If you want a chance to dance with, shake hands with or maybe even get a hug from one of the Boyz II Men group members during the show, try to book your ticket for the first few front rows.)Concluding the show with the audience on their feet, the ever-lively, harmonizing group shakes their fans' hands, gives out some hugs and sends off sincere waves to the back of the house before the final curtain closes.  In the beginning of the group's Mirage residency, Vice President of Hotel Operations Franz Kallao remarked, "All of us at The Mirage are excited to welcome Boyz II Men to our resort, giving guests the opportunity to experience one of the best R&B groups in the music industry," and clearly that welcome is still alive and well as Boyz II Men remain one of the best R&B groups to date.
