2. "O" by Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas O Show

"O" is not just the name of the show, but also the shape your mouth will take for the entire 90 minutes you're gawking over this production. As one of the most popular and best Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, it's also one of the wettest. "O" immerses audiences into a dream world of acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and an array of other aquatic characters in, on and above a 1.5-million gallon pool. It's kinda like that one time you drank a little too much cough syrup and went swimming in your neighbor's pool, but way cooler.

Michael Jackson ONE Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas

It takes one heck of a performer to tackle Michael Jackson's legendary musical catalogue, but just as he was no ordinary artist, Michael Jackson ONE is no ordinary show. If the music isn't enough to get you into the action, the effects are sure to do the trick. Lights, gravity-defying acrobatics, state-of-the-art hip-hop infused choreography with the King of Pop's signature dance moves fuse seamlessly for what Rolling Stone called "A virtual parade of WOW moments." Cirque Du Soleil's trademark action is a perfect companion for Jackson's music for an experience like no other.

Best CLOSED Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas

Zumanity Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas

Zumanity, now closed: It's definitely getting hot in here and the performers are definitely taking off all their clothes. Exploring the very sexy and very un-family-friendly side of Cirque du Soleil, Zumanity whips - er - whisks audience members up for a deliciously wild ride to discover their sensual side. Unlike other Cirque du Soleil productions, Zumanity has no storyline. Instead, this highly eroticized, cabaret-style spectacle offers a bunch of unique characters whose performances are each themed by different elements of sexuality. Oh, and there is no traditional Cirque gibberish either unless you count some moans and groans as such. Between the leather, chains, silks and well, some things we just can't share, you can bet a little laughter is welcomed. Let your hair down, loosen one extra button, and get your naughty on for some sexy entertainment that just may be a precursor for the remainder of your evening.

R.U.N by Cirque du Soleil

Sorry, this show is temporarily closed. Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas has one of the best track records on the Las Vegas shows circuit. So when they told us they're launching a new immersive show at Luxor Las Vegas, we could hardly contain our excitement. R.U.N by Cirque du Soleil is the formal title and overarching theme for the show. Hopefully, this doesn't require us to do any cardio, because that could get ugly real quick. Unlike the signature Cirque du Soleil repertoire, this show is more about stunts than acrobatics, so we're all in for a treat. Although they wow us with their action-packed moves, this show has incorporated an extensive storyline.

KA 360

Closed: New this summer 2019 is the KA 360 Experience event, which is very cool but, best of all, it's completely FREE! The KA 360 Experience offers you a chance to get up and up-close look at how the KÀ team combines awe-inspiring artistry with one-of-a-kind technology to create this $165 million production.
