Christmas and Mariah Carey go back like babies and pacifiers. You could say that they’re as classic as Santa Claus and that red-nosed reindeer. Speaking of which, that sultry voice is coming to Vegas this holiday season with its “All I Want For Christmas Is You” show. And no, we’re not talking about the man in the red suite or his horned sidekick, either.Mariah Carey, the diva of all divas, has hits like Santa has gifts for all the little kiddies. Having sold more than 200 million records, she’s far-and-away the best-selling female artist of all time. On the holiday side, her 1994 album “Merry Christmas” has sold 5.5 million copies in the U.S alone. And the album’s lead single, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” is widely regarded as one of the best Christmas songs OF. ALL. TIME. That song has become as much a part of the holidays as ugly sweater parties or your gram gram’s fruitcake.We already have the show penciled in on our calendars. It’s slotted in between Cousin Eddie’s Ugly Sweater party and Aunt Gertrude’s Brandy-fueled rant about politics. It’s tradition.
Mariah Carey has great pipes--take your special lady

I am not a Mariah Carey fan. Recognized a couple of her #1 hits. She's a little self absorbed, and has zero witty banter. That said, her voice is one of the great female voices in pop history. I put her up there with Streisand and Whitney Houston. Just amazing. My girlfriend cried twice. I got the "cheap" seats for $100 in the balcony. Her voice was worth every penny and the production at the Cesar's concert hall/show room is the best venue for a non-stadium type concert you will find.
Get ready to experience the ultimate sensory overload when our favorite blue bros take the stage and crank up the volume. An audiovisual encounter unlike anything else on the Strip, Blue Man Group is fun for the whole family and just doesn’t get old no matter how many times you see it. The narrators of the Blue Man Group show profess to know a lot about human nature and social evolution, but the three bald and blue stars are oddly oblivious. Through music, movement and only a little bit of verbal communication, you become a part of this production and swim in the sights and sounds that douse the theater. The show is good clean fun with a variety of acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company's signature music, played on far-out, makeshift instruments.Seriously fun and unconventionally educational, you’ll have had a lot of laughs, and have maybe even shaken your caboose. Go ahead and let your jaw drop open, after all, being consumed by entertainment produced by three blue men is a perfectly acceptable reaction.
Still worth seeing but not as good as their first but not that different

Loved the first time I saw the Blue Man group, and saw their original show a second time. I was excited to see the new incarnation of their act. Unfortunately, it wasn't that different, but not as good as the original. However, for those who haven't see the BMG before, they are a must see.
The disembodied narrators of the Blue Man Group show profess to know a lot about human nature and social evolution, but the three earless, voiceless, black-clad stars are oddly oblivious.Though it deals out a good dose of off-color humor, the show also takes on big issues including brain function, groupthink, artificial intelligence and the loss of language, guiding the audience to its conclusions about society with the same playful force that the trio of mimes uses to harangue guests into participating in the production.Once the floating eyeball blimps finish their pre-show course around the theater and silent scrolling text has mocked a few of your fellow audience members, be prepared to have a bright blue hand sift through your personal belongings and to hear a booming voice insinuate that your iPhone is making you less human. It's all part of the fun.Blue Man Group sprinkles its show with kid-friendly variety acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company's signature music, played on fantastical invented instruments. Lighting and special effects bolster the effect of the beats, but Blue Man Group is not a show with a soundtrack — it's a soundtrack with a show.
Are cameras allowed in the show?
Yes, at the end of the show, for the finale, cameras are allowed and encouraged. They are not allowed for most of the show though.
