The Rocket Man has returned. Singer, songwriter and musician Elton John is back at Caesars Palace for a three-year residency, his third as a Caesars headliner. Elton kicks off his show, The Million Dollar Piano, with "The Bitch is Back," crowd pleaser "Bennie and the Jets" and what Elton calls one of his favorite songs, "Rocket Man."The focal point of the stage when Elton is singing is, of course, the piano and Elton introduces it as "the other star of my show."The show's namesake instrument, created by Elton and Yamaha, is an engineering marvel that took nearly four years to make and weighs 3,200 pounds.The piano features more than 68 LED video screens on the side of it, which create the perfect accompaniment to Elton's greatest hits, displaying imagery that complements the songs and sometimes mirroring what's being projected on the mammoth screen behind the Colosseum stage.Elton said he has five pianos all over the world with different names and this one is called Blossom after jazz singer and pianist Blossom Dearie. The piano is so high-tech that Elton jokes it has a microwave and an aquarium under its glass top. "The only thing it doesn't do is barbecue," he said.Besides the eye-catching piano, the rest of Elton's show is visually stunning as well. The set features large golden scrolls decorated with piano keys on either side of the stage, a huge golden dog standing guard on one side, large golden Roman-inspired columns and rocket ships flying through the air. The designer, Mark Fisher, is known for his design of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and his work designing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Although there's a lot to look at, the show is all about the Elton's award-winning music. He sings the big hits that everyone wants to hear including "Tiny Dancer," "I'm Still Standing" and "Levon." Elton is backed by a five-piece band, two cellists (who appear on several numbers) and four female background singers including Rose Stone from Sly and the Family Stone and her daughter, Lisa Stone.After playing several numbers with the band, there's a segment that Elton calls "the mini unplugged section of the show" where it's just him and his million dollar piano for songs like "Your Song" and "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters."Elton dedicates the song "Blue Eyes" to his late friend Elizabeth Taylor as images of her float across the screen and the stage is bathed in a blue hue.The colors turn yellow for "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" while an animated trip through Elton's life flashes on the screen behind him."Philadelphia Freedom" is a high energy explosion of red, white and blue lights and stars and stripes on the screen behind Elton and the screens on the piano.The crowd gets involved on "Crocodile Rock" as live video of Elton singing is projected on the screens before the camera is turned on the audience to show video of them dancing and singing along.The production comes to a close with "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" as Elton invites a few lucky audience members to gather on stage around the piano to dance and get an up-close look at his considerable piano playing talents.--By Kristine McKenzie

best show we have seen in Vegas
PostedApril 14, 2014
Well worth the ticket price. Plays almost all of the hits and is very engaging with the crowd. He is a very humble man who gives credit to his support staff and co-writer. My wife and I both highly recommend this show!

Get a taste of a more sensuous side of reality with Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity at New York-New York. This show explores the different realms of sexuality through stunning imagery, aerialists, comical vignettes and sultry dancing. Unlike other Cirque du Soleil productions, Zumanity has no storyline. Instead, this highly eroticized, cabaret-style spectacular has an array of unique characters whose performances are each themed by different elements of sexuality.Before the show starts, characters appear in the audience for some playful interaction."If you are visiting Las Vegas and living la vida loca make some noise!" exclaims Antonio, the first character to appear. His irresistible charm, flirtatious personality and shiny gold suit captivate the audience.While he gets the crowd aroused with some jokes, the voluptuous Botero twin sisters, dressed in racy French maid outfits, squeeze their way through the aisles. Everyone laughs as the sisters find themselves in awkward positions reaching or bending over guests while trying to hand out fresh strawberries.Little by little, Antonio and the twins make their way to the stage with a parade of other intriguing characters as the real show begins. The show's Emcee, Edie, "the Mistress of Sensuality," is played by a flawless looking drag queen who explains that she will be your tour guide on your journey through the many facets of lust, passion and sensuality.Intense drum beats fill the theater as a savage looking dancer, dressed in little more than a beaded loin cloth, performs an African tribal dance of uninhibited passion. The music intensifies as he gyrates and thrusts his body to the beat of the drums.As new performers take the stage, the tone changes from subtle flirtations to that of hedonistic pleasure. The transition of acts and moods emulates the surge of various emotions that arise in every romantic relationship.Edie reappears to introduce the next act, a slower more sensual number that conveys innocence in the face of sinful indulgence."Do you remember your first wet kiss?" asks Edie as a large bowl of water and two beautiful women appear on stage. They slip into the water and gracefully make their way to the bowl's edge for a series of incredible and sensuous poses.The different acts and performers not only explore the many sides of sexuality but they also demonstrate the amazing capabilities of the human body.The tone of the show then transforms into that of flirtatious fun as a striking woman dressed in a sexy schoolgirl outfit performs an act with hula hoops. After spinning a few hoops she takes to flight by grabbing a rope hanging from the ceiling. She gracefully twists and poses above the stage while continuing to spin the hoops in mid-air.Each of the performers is unique in their personalities and appearances, promoting the idea that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.The Botero sisters, along with a hilarious husband and wife duo, Mr. Dick and Mrs. Ginger, appear throughout the show for some comic relief. They turn some of the more taboo topics on sex into a source of laughter and fun for the audience.Elena, a gorgeous and sweet dancer, does a tantalizing routine on top of a television in attempt to grab the attention of her football-focused partner. Her sultry dance moves excite everyone in the audience.There are no topics off limits as Zumanity explores some of the darker sides of sex. Laetitia performs an exercise in self-inflicted pleasure and pain as she wraps herself in leather straps hanging from the ceiling. She uses the straps as a device for torture and teasing as she elegantly transitions into new poses while hanging above the stage.This intense scene is followed by a more romantic number with a male and female aerialist duo who perform a stunning dance using a white curtain hanging from the ceiling. They dazzle the audience with their graceful choreography in mid air before making their way back to the stage.Zumanity's uninhibited theme is a refreshing break from the norm. It takes an amusing look at sexuality and reminds us all that intimacy should always be about having fun.

good show for the money
PostedApril 14, 2014
The show is entertaining, but not as good as some of the other Circ shows we have seen in Vegas.
The crowd interaction was funny, but be prepared if you set close to the stage.

"I'll be baack!"We know...you're wondering what do the "Terminator" movies and an Italian-themed luxury resort in Vegas have to do with each other? OK, not a lot. But that famous line, which is uttered in some form in all of the franchise's films, happens to be the same one said by guests (without Arnold Schwarzenegger's gruff Austrian accent) upon leaving The Venetian.So consider yourself warned: If you spend your Vegas vacation here, you'll be spoiled for all other hotels. You'll want to come back to The Venetian -- time and time again. It's just that great.Located a tad north of the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, directly across from The Mirage, this megaresort is a colossally cool creation in modern day Vegas. Opened in 1999, it's situated where the Sands Hotel of Rat Pack lore once stood.Now this is obvious so it probably goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway -- The Venetian is inspired by the art and architectural beauty of Venice. There are faithfully re-created landmarks from Italy's most romantic city everywhere. You'll spot the Campanile Tower, St. Mark's Square, the Rialto Bridge and Doge's Palace. Arched bridges, piazzas and cobblestone pathways are incorporated throughout the property. And just wait until you see the Renaissance-style ceiling in the lobby...you might as well cross Venice off your bucket list because this is almost as awesome.The Venetian, which sits next to The Palazzo (its sister resort), consists of two towers -- the 36-story Venetian Tower and the 12-story Venezia Tower. Both of them are filled with suites (and only suites...so get ready to be unbelievably comfortable). The smallest one measures about 650 square feet and features Italian marble floors, Roman tubs with separate showers, Egyptian cotton sheets, a sunken living area and other palatial amenities.Unfortunately, many things will entice you to leave your suite at The Venetian (otherwise, you would never come out). You can take in Broadway-caliber entertainment like the smash hit "Rock of Ages." The hotel is also home to "Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show," featuring four talented vocalists from Australia who sing Motown tunes. Plus, a variety of headliners and comedians -- like the ladies of the "Lipshtick" comedy series -- regularly appear here.The Venetian brings a cornucopia of dining choices to you as well. Indulge in culinary creations (most of which you won't be able pronounce) at its celebrity chef-helmed restaurants. There's the fresh seafood of AquaKnox by Tom Moloney, the Italian delights of B & B Ristorante by Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, the meaty fare of Delmonico Steakhouse by Emeril Lagasse, the contemporary French dishes of db Brasserie by Daniel Boulud and the bistro classics of Bouchon by Thomas Keller (who also operates the Bouchon Bakery at two locations in the resort).Buddy Valastro, the star of the reality show "Cake Boss," offers family favorites, like Sunday Gravy and Steak Pizzaiola, in his first-ever restaurant Buddy V's. Adjacent to it is Carlo's Bakery, where you can get cannolis, Buddy's lobster tail pastries and, of course, his famous cakes.Feast on more casual offerings at the patio-style Trattoria Reggiano and the Old Mexico-themed Taqueria Cañonita. B&B Burger & Beer, another venue by Batali and Bastianich, features hamburgers with super delicious shakes. Select from breakfast items, seafood, chicken, salads, sandwiches and more than 20 fabulous desserts at the Grand Lux Café. Or try the Public House, where brews and spirits of all kinds are paired with a gourmet pub menu. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is the latest eatery to open at The Venetian. It serves delicious fried chicken and other beloved Southern staples. Yardbird also has a truly unique cocktail menu -- thanks to a special ice room where mixologists harvest hand-cut, flavored blocks, sculpt them into crazy shapes and then put them in the drinks. (You won't believe the cube...or rather sphere...that comes in the Yardbird Old Fashioned!)Speaking of drinking, nightlife options abound at The Venetian. There's The Bourbon Room, inspired by the legendary Sunset Strip club in the musical "Rock of Ages." Partiers can get shots of bourbon while dancing to feel-good tunes from the '80s. V Bar is a chic, intimate spot where you can sip on a martini while relaxing in a double-sided leather chaise lounge. For a more pulsating scene, head to TAO Nightclub, which boasts gorgeous go-go dancers, some of the world's leading DJs and a 40-foot-long outdoor terrace with stunning views of the Strip. Last but not least is the rollicking Rockhouse, which boasts tire swings for the bartenders, birdcages for dancing girls and a mechanical bull. For a nightlife experience during the day, check out TAO Beach, where you can sunbathe on beautiful Asian-inspired daybeds or in lavish cabanas. If you'd prefer to catch some rays without being immersed in the pool party scene, The Venetian also has a sprawling pool deck with access to seven outdoor swimming pools, four hot tubs and 41 cabanas. And Canyon Ranch SpaClub is a quiet oasis where you can be pampered from a menu of rejuvenating treatments that includes massages, mud masks, aromatherapy experiences, facials, body scrubs and more.Many other things will compete for your attention at The Venetian too. Test your luck on the opulent casino floor, in the elegant 59-table poker room or at the race and sports book operated by CG Technology. You can stroll inside and outside along canals teeming with authentic gondolas steered by singing gondoliers. Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, a worldwide attraction featuring celebrity wax figures, is situated at the front of the resort. And the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo is a collection of approximately 160 high-end shops (including Barneys) that flaunts the hottest names in the fashion world.On a side note, The Venetian ideal if you're a business traveler because it's connected to the Sands Expo and Convention Center. And, in addition to all the things that already make this resort remarkable, it's eco-friendly. So, if you want to ease your conscience by sleeping in a place that takes sustainability seriously, The Venetian -- with solar panels, a reclaimed water system and many other green initiatives -- is it.Stay at the Venetian and you'll get a suite, more amenities under one roof than you can fathom and a great location on the Strip (should you ever leave the premises). You'll have an all-around amazing time in Vegas at The Venetian. And we know -- because like an old record, everyone who stays here says it -- you'll be back!

Nice Place to stay
PostedNovember 26, 2013
We were very happy with our room. It was just as described in the promo material and was very quiet. The staff we encountered were pleasant and did an adequate job. We don't gamble so the casino was a non-factor for us. As with any hotel in Vegas, I wish there was an easy way to bypass the casino, so you wouldn't have to be exposed to the smoke. Overall we would consider staying here again.

Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, created by Franco Dragone, at Wynn. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you first enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. The circular 1608-seat theater is situated around a pool that is 68-and-a-half-feet in diameter with the furthest seat only 42 feet from the water. The 27-foot-deep pool is kept at a comfortable 89 degrees Fahrenheit.Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling or running through the theater and alongside the audience. If you are seated by an aisle, you never know when you are going to look to your side and see a masked face or other curious character staring right back at you.Le Rêve has a loosely woven storyline that begins with a woman and man dancing and then saying goodnight and goodbye to each other. The man departs the stage, and the woman lies down to rest on a bed. Together the woman and the bed slowly disappear underwater, signifying that her spectacular dream is about to begin.The music changes from soft and mysterious to loud and invigorating as creatures of the night arise from the water and emerge from the aisles and make their way to center stage. Some of them look playful and fun while others have a more malevolent appearance. Aerialists are lowered from the ceiling to join in the revelry, and soon the pool is transformed into a spectacular ring of fire.This is one of the many different scene changes in the show that takes place on a platform in the middle of the pool capable of rising 15 feet above the water. There are three additional lifts that enable performers to enter from backstage without having to get wet. They can disappear and reappear in seconds, creating a constantly changing stage area. Special lighting and water effects and a stimulating soundtrack performed live add to Le Rêve's spectacular production elements.Rain pours from the ceiling, smothering the ring of fire and revealing a bevy of beautiful women and then men who seem to materialize from the water. A tall, rotating, tree-like platform rises from the pool where male gymnasts do incredible poses and dives.Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next. One of the signature acts in the show is a tango number performed with both synchronized swimmers in the pool and tantalizing tango dancers on the platform. It begins with red high heels and then legs appearing from the water and moving around to the upbeat rhythm of the music. Couples enter the platform creating a multi-level dance extravaganza.During another dance sequence, men with large white billowing fans walk onto the stage while the woman, whose character is dreaming, performs a whimsical dance routine. Beautiful patterns created by colorful lights are displayed on the fans as they seem to float and gracefully move above the stage. The audience also gets a view of the woman dancing on stage as a beautiful silhouette behind the fans.While the performers dazzle the audience on stage, in the air and from the water, what's going on behind the scenes is just as amazing. During the show there are 16 divers who aid performers underwater. There are also 100 hookah regulators in the pool to help performers travel underwater or to assist them when they are performing with their heads submerged for long periods of time.The fast-paced show means quick costume changes for the performers and a lot of running up and down stairs to get in position for their next act. A wardrobe attendant is on hand to operate one of the theater elevators, moving performers over 40 times during one 75-minute show. Eleven dressers are also working behind the scenes to assist the cast of 91 performers with 2,000 costume items.Back on stage, the cast continues to mystify the audience with more incredible performances. A lamppost is lowered with a man wearing pants and a suit jacket effortlessly leaning on it. As the lamppost hangs in mid-air the man balances his body away from the post and horizontal to the ground using only his incredible strength and agility to achieve this feat.Three more dream-like characters are lowered in a wire framed globe where they perform an amazing routine suspended above the water. They weave their way through the open frame and hang off of one another, creating a series of beautiful poses as the globe is lowered and then raised to different heights above the water. It is just one of many awe-inspiring moments in Le Rêve.Champagne CircleGuests who purchase the Champagne Circle seats get an extra special viewing experience. The Champagne Circle seats are the furthest from the stage but at only 42 feet from the water, this is still a spectacular view. Located foot-level in front of the Champagne Circle seats is a screen that shows pre-recorded backstage footage of the show before it starts. Once the lights go dim and the show begins, the screens give guests a live behind-the-scenes view of the performers when they are underwater, backstage or descending from more than 80 feet above the stage. During a synchronized swimming routine when only the performers legs are visible to the audience, the screens allow guests seated in the Champagne Circle to see how the swimmers manage to stay underwater for so long, one of the many intricacies that go into putting on this extravagant show. The Champagne Circle experience also includes complimentary champagne bottle service and a tray of two chocolate covered strawberries and six savory chocolate truffles.-- By Caroline Fontein

Unbelievable Show
PostedNovember 26, 2013
This was the highlight of our trip for both my wife and me. The show is simply spectacular! The performers are amazing and the environment is something that you have to see to believe. If you only have time for one show in Vegas, I would go see this one!

Very good experience
PostedNovember 26, 2013
Was our first time in a helicopter and it proved to be well worth the money. Our pilot, Daniel was very personable and did a great job explaining what the ride would be like and what we would see. I would recommend this side trip if you are going to Vegas!
