If you're looking for a show that's a fusion of acrobatics, dance and visual effects, accompanied by a classic rock 'n' roll soundtrack, then all you need is LOVE.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a slightly psychedelic journey through the trends and politics of the '60s and most importantly, The Beatles' history, told through nearly 30 of the group's songs.LOVE started out as a collaboration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil's Guy LaLiberté. After Harrison's death, the remaining Beatles and the families of the late group members helped bring Harrison's vision to life, sharing their ideas about song selection and song order for the show.The music director for LOVE is none other than Sir George Martin, who is best known for his work producing The Beatles' music. Martin's son, Giles, is also a music director for the show.Although LOVE features some well-known Beatles songs, it is not meant to be a greatest hits show.The journey starts with the energetic "Get Back" at the scene of The Beatles' farewell concert and then flashes back to Liverpool during World War II when the band members were young children.No journey through the '60s would be complete without a trip through the era of Beatlemania. Acrobats and tumblers on trampolines perform, accompanied by "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Drive My Car.""Help" serves as the soundtrack for four extreme sports athletes who take the stage leaping 11 foot ramps on inline skates."Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Octopus's Garden" are the perfect backdrops for Cirque's famous aerial ballet moves.The show even features a "jam session" created from authentic recordings of the four band members. All of the audio clips and music in the show are from actual recordings from The Beatles' Abbey Road studio.The show concludes with its namesake "All You Need is Love," as a montage of photos of The Beatles plays on huge screens, leaving the audience with a feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era.Besides The Beatles, the other star of the show is the 2,000-plus seat theater itself, which features 360-degree seating. There is not a bad seat in the house and the farthest is only 98 feet from the stage.The sound system is unlike any other - there are 6,341 speakers in the theater and patrons feel as though they are completely enveloped in sound. There are three speakers per seat -- two in each headrest and one in the seat in front of you.The theater also features a complex video system with 28 projectors and two 20-foot-high by 100-foot-wide screens, which contribute to the visual experience.LOVE is not a typical Cirque du Soleil show with high-flying trapeze artists, gymnasts and acrobats. Although there is some of that in the show, it is mainly a theatrical and dance-oriented show. The creators also wanted to bring a bit of the youth of today into the show, showcasing extreme sports, break dancing and street dancing.In the end, it's all about the music and if you're a fan of The Beatles, you'll have nothing but love for this show.-- By Kristine McKenzie

Vegas is full of gems that aren't really hidden so much as waiting to be discovered. Down a hall in Mandalay Bay, or through a door in the parking structure, you'll discover the Delano – a sophisticated and elegant accent to the wanton world of the Las Vegas Strip.From Mandalay Bay, pass the MJ One Theater and the elevator to the famous Mix restaurant and lounge. From the valet entrance, move through the large, wood-slatted gate and in between the massive divided boulder that graces the entryway. Either way will lead you to a sight you won't soon forget.The first thing you'll likely notice is the minimalist nature-inspired décor. Many Strip hotels opt for glamour and prestige, but most demand constant traffic that can detract from the decadence. Give yourself a moment to adjust to the beauty and you'll realize two facts quite quickly: Delano has no gaming to distract you and no smoking to choke you up. (Yes, Delano is a rare breed in Vegas, a non-smoking resort.) All of this creates a property that doesn't scream class, it whispers it politely and with style.Whether you're checking in or just checking out the space, you can get your morning coffee and muffin at 3940 Coffee + Tea, the eatery that's open from the morning until early evening. Two items not to be missed are the croissant/donut and the Nutella and raspberry crêpes. If you're looking for something a bit stiffer, just take a few steps to the other side of the lobby.Franklin, Delano's signature lobby bar, has a warmth that can be hard to find in Sin City – not counting the outdoor heat of course. The fireplace brings that warmth more literally, but the intimate back room, and wide open bar area, each with just the right amount of dimness and charm, make the whole space feel like a hot little hideaway that's still right in the middle of an exquisite lobby – perfect for anyone wanting to get cozy while still being seen. And when the hour gets late, a DJ appears and turns the space into a quasi-club that hits all the right notes.An unforgettable culinary and nightlife experience reigns at Mix restaurant and lounge, set atop the Delano Las Vegas and featuring views that make angels jealous. Internationally acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse created its nouveau French menu, which includes classic Franco-American dishes with global accents, like the seared duck foie gras, lobster Caesar salad and pepper-crusted bison tenderloin. When you're ready to pamper your whole sensual self, the Bathhouse Spa has 12 treatment rooms, exotic baths, pools of varying temperatures and a sultry waterfall. Massages, facials and body wraps are offered. And showcased on the menu is a collection of "Global Journeys," exquisite rituals from far-off places like India and other countries you don’t need to travel to for the experience of a lifetime.As a guest of Delano, you'll also have access to everything Mandalay Bay has to offer from the theaters to the casino to the convention center. Plus, afternoons can be spent soaking up the sun and scoping out the scene at Mandalay Bay Beach, an 11-acre paradise-like pool complex, Moorea Beach Club or Daylight Beach Club. Delano Las Vegas is also within walking distance of a premium retail complex (The Shoppes at Mandalay Place), a diverse collection of trendy restaurants and bars (from Fleur by Hubert Keller and RM Seafood by Rick Moonen to Eyecandy and the House of Blues) and a number of major tourist attractions (Shark Reef).With a lobby that feels like an art house and model studio that just happens to have a coffee shop and bar, and an atmosphere that treats you less like a guest and more like royalty on holiday from responsibility, Delano is one of the sweet spots in Vegas to indulge in luxury while embracing the serene. 
 

How far of a walk the casino?

I will be staying here soon and just want to know if the walk to the main Mandalay Bay building is long or not?
The walk is about 200 yards.
