Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and maybe even learn some new dance moves at "Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show." The show features the dynamic harmonies of Toby Allen, Phil Burton, Andrew Tierney and Michael Tierney as they perform Motown's greatest hits. Their uplifting show creates a night of exciting entertainment.Robinson first heard Human Nature when they auditioned for him in hopes of getting his permission to sing one of his songs on their new album."I grew up with Motown where the standard for talent was so high," said Robinson. "When I saw these guys I was blown away."Robinson not only gave them permission to use his song, but he became an instant fan. He said that what impressed him most about Human Nature was their ability to sound amazing without any special voice altering techniques, as used with many other popular studio artists today. Robinson wanted other people in the United States to have that same experience, which led to Human Nature being the first Australian group to have their own show on the Las Vegas Strip.Although audiences in Vegas may not be that familiar with Human Nature, they are one of the most popular acts from Australia. The group formed in 1989 as a doo-wop band in Sydney. In 1994 they signed with Sony Music and released their debut album "Telling Everybody" in 1995. The album was an instant hit, selling four times platinum and in the process going on to become the most successful debut album ever released in Australia. Human Nature released their fourth consecutive No. 1 album, "A Symphony of Hits," in 2008.As a result of their outstanding showmanship, Human Nature has performed as the opening act for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. In 2000, they had the honor of performing the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics. In "Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show," the four men, dressed in coordinating suits, perform all your favorite Motown hits including "Reach Out I'll Be There," "Baby I Need Your Loving" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" backed by a live six-piece band. Not only do they have all the soulful sound of The Four Tops, but they also have the catchy choreography. The men are constantly moving around the stage in sync with one another and the music.Between songs they stop to greet the audience. They explain that when they were young they always aspired to be as great as groups like The Temptations and The Miracles. Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience others.People watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several of these moments in the show when Human Nature performs without the band. These songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and his ability to perform in perfect harmony with the rest of the group.Aside from just showing off their fancy footwork and incredible voices, the performers also like to share their fun-loving personalities with the audience. During their performance of "Stop In the Name of Love" they ask guests to get out of their seats and learn a few dance moves with them. Everyone stands while Allen, Burton and the Tierney brothers demonstrate some simple choreography to perform in time with the chorus. Before you know it, the entire audience is standing with their hands in the air and singing along.Human Nature keeps everyone on their feet and dancing to the tunes of more hits including "Wait a Minute Mr. Postman," "My Girl," and "ABC." No one can resist the feel-good message found in these timeless songs and in the incredible show put on by Human Nature.

Seats over to side of stage
PostedFebruary 1, 2015
Side seating makes it hard to see the whole stage. Seating charts don't really show you this. Maybe should have waited to purchase tickets at the showroom box office.

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

Seats not that good
PostedFebruary 1, 2015
We thought our seats would have been a little better. Will probably wait to buy tickets at the box office next time, so we can view the seating chart.

The epitome of quality, romance and elegance on the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio offers luxurious rooms, gourmet restaurants and upscale shopping along with a healthy dose of cultural enlightenment.From the moment one passes the tree-lined pathway and eight-acre lake in front of the hotel, it's clear that the Bellagio pays impeccable attention to detail. The Fountains of Bellagio are world famous, amazing onlookers as they soar into the sky. A vibrant flower petal chandelier by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, called Fiori di Como, hangs above the lobby like a garden growing from the 18-foot ceiling. The front desk is bordered by a thriving display of foliage, which often coincides with the seasonal display of fresh flowers and trees at the glass-topped Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. A horticulture staff of 140 maintains the beloved attraction, which boasts an entirely different presentation for each of the four seasons and Chinese New Year. Plus, you'll find Mr. & Ms. Green Thumb on hand daily from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. to answer questions about the gardens.Art is a common theme at the Bellagio with museum-caliber exhibitions chosen from prestigious collections captivating patrons at The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. The lobby for Cirque du Soleil's water acrobatics masterpiece "O" showcases bronze sculptures of dancers and acrobats by master sculptor Richard MacDonald, ushering guests into the world of grace and motion before they even enter the theater.Guests will find ultimate relaxation at the Zen-inspired, two-story and can also take fitness classes in The Bamboo Studio exercise room. A quiet hallway overlooking the villa-style pool area marks the perfect spot to enjoy a cold treat from Café Gelato, read a newspaper or sip coffee. The shops at are high-end and exclusive. Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and the timeless jewelry stores Breguet and Tiffany & Co. are counted among these, and several luxury retailers -- like Bellissimo for eyewear and Platino for men's wear -- can be found along the pool promenade.Nightlife is always a classy experience at the The Bank. In the grand foyer, bottles of Cristal are stacked from floor to ceiling. The dance floor is lined by etched-glass railings, and striking crystal chandeliers sway overhead. A spectacular indoor/outdoor nightlife venue, called Hyde Bellagio, overlooks the Fountains of Bellagio. It features an award-winning mixology program, tuxedo-clad servers, gourmet small plates and live DJs who play electrifying dance music. Visitors also enjoy Lily. The bar, boasting imported Spanish stone tabletops and community-style ottomans,  provides a more exclusive, intimate evening experience.For a first-rate dining experience, treat yourself to the succulent French fare of Le Cirque or take in the natural beauty of Sensi, where waterfalls and carved stone walls complement distinctive Asian and Italian delicacies. Savor chef Julian Serrano's magnificent Mediterranean food in Picasso, which features some of the great master's paintings.

Circus "O" tickets

Hi,
Wife and I are going to Vegas in Oct, and would like to see Circus "O". I was going to purchase tickets today, but the site said that if didn't pick up tickets 2 hrs after purchase, it would be forfeited. How early can I puchase tickets? This will be our 1st time in Vegas.
Thanks,
kenneth
You shouldn't have to pick up your tickets until right before the show. You might wait to purchase tickets when you get to Vegas. Most shows don't sell out that quick.
