In celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Beatle’s only Las Vegas appearance in 1964, cast members from The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, Southwest Airlines and McCarran International Airport joined together today in commemoration.

The show's cast members took the same route the iconic group did 50 years ago by taking a Southwest flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas. Guests boarding the southwest flight at San Francisco International Airport were surprised with a special performance alongside special in-flight giveaways and on-board photo opportunities with the cast. 

The celebration continued at McCarran International Airport’s Terminal 1 baggage claim as travelers were greeted with pop-up performances by the LOVE cast. The performances featured an arrangement of three of The Beatles’ biggest hits including “Get Back,” “Drive My Car” and “Sgt. Pepper,” with LOVE performers dancing on top of the carousels and acrobats flipping on trampolines as a vintage 1960s Volkswagen Beetle was driven through baggage claim.

LOVE, a Cirque du Soleil creation and co-production with Apple Corps Ltd., celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
