The Backstreet Boys aren’t the only ones leaving their mark in Las Vegas this spring. From comedy acts to musical talents and everything in between, a wide variety of shows are set to take over Vegas’ most popular hotels in the coming months.
Known for its collection of engaging shows for every age group and preference, Las Vegas nightlife holds a reputable accolade when it comes to entertainment; perhaps the reason it has been loosely dubbed as the entertainment capital of the world. To add to the excitement, the hustling and bustling city will play host to five new and returning shows this spring:
Magic Mike Live
Based on the hit films “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XXL,” Magic Mike Live will recreate the Club Domina as a cabaret nightclub space inside the Hard Rock Hotel designed to capture the full essence of the increasingly popular Magic Mike franchise.
The show was conceived and co-directed by the lead of the Magic Mike franchise, Channing Tatum. Although Tatum himself won’t be in the show, thirteen of the hottest men will take over for him. Hold on tight ladies and gentlemen, Magic Mike Live is ready to bring the heat with acrobatic strip teases and themed dances punctuated by a wildly diverse troupe of performers.
