Performing all 18 of her timeless No. 1 hits together for the first time, Mariah Carey is bringing her Vegas-tailored residency to The Colosseum for an extravagant limited-time engagement.Referred to as the "songbird supreme" by the Guinness World Records, the hip hop mega-star will be belting out her Billboard Hot 100 number ones including "Glitter," "Touch My Body," "Hero" and "Fantasy," in addition to fan favorite music cuts, never-before-performed selections and various other special surprises for her Vegas spectacular. Having recently reached nearly two dozen No. 1 hits -- an accomplishment that has not been reached by any other solo artist in history -- the unstoppable chanteuse will be releasing the album that inspired this concert series later this year. Since beginning her singing career in the '90s, Carey has become one of the best-selling female artists of all time with more than 200 million records sold across the globe, five Grammy Awards, 19 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards and 31 Billboard Music Awards to her name. Beyond her music, the multifaceted music mogul is also a talented songwriter (writing 17 of her 18 No. 1 hits), record producer, business woman and actress landing the supporting role in the 2009 hit "Precious" that won her the "Breakthrough Performance Award" at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Working with various other recording artists over her expansive career, Carey's most notable collaboration was in 1995 off her "Daydream" album. Titled "One Sweet Day," this song inspired by the death of record producer David Cole and her sister Allison, was recorded with R&B vocal Group Boyz II Men and was an instant hit. Holding its place as No. 1 on the charts for seeming as long as Carey can hold a high note, the song remained untouched on the charts for 16 weeks and became (and still remains) the longest-running No. 1 song in history. With big plans for her Las Vegas stay, the unparalleled musical styling of this vocal powerhouse is undoubtedly hitting yet another performer high note for The Colosseum.
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.
