On a more upbeat note, how was the rest of your trip? Did you enjoy your hotel? Any exceptional meals? Any other shows that you enjoyed more?

I've never seen a show get such consistently bad reviews. I wish Cirque realised it's harming their reputation and either pulled it or revamped it.

Rozybell, so sorry you had a lousy time at the show but what was the highlight of your trip?

Just last week, a co-worker of mine mentioned that she was thinking of seeing Criss Angel on her upcoming trip. I begged her to read the reviews first. She changed her mind.

It's funny, because we were just eating dinner at our local Red Robin the other night and our server told us that she went and saw this show about a year and a half ago and she totally loved it. I told her that I have heard reviews from many people about this show, and she was the first one that has actually liked it. She was shocked! I couldn't help but laugh!

I think what happens is people go expecting your typical CIRQUE production show with acrobatics, dancing, etc. It's definitely not. In fact, it shouldn't even be classified as a Cirque show. It's Criss and his magic acts ( the same magic acts that every other Magician in Vegas does), NOT a huge production show. Go with that in mind, buy yourself discounted tickets (don't pay full price) and hopefully you'll enjoy the show.

Even though it very well maybe true that CA's show stinks more than a fresh turd on a warm sidewalk, I am always suspect when someone comes on here and right away starts to bash anything, rather it be a show, restaurant, hotel or whatever and they have 1-2 posts. JMHO.

C'mon...what else did you LIKE about Vegas? What was the best thing? (this is what I always ask my kids about school-what was the best thing that happened today..what was the worst..and then tell me about the stuff that happened in between! lol)

hey guys, i have posted this twice, sorry i didnt realise.

Anyhow, totally loved the rest of out trip and out of seven days there, it was only that one show i didn't like, but on a good note, everything else was perfect, we stayed at the luxor hotel, beautiful place, we ate lovely meals on an evening from fish to italian, tried a bit of everything, went to the grand canyon, that just blew us away, we went with the company called sundance, and our pilot nath was fab, sorry i have a bad memory for names so i will get the best places we ate off my hubby later and post them on here for you.

The best show we saw was the lion king, the production was first class and i would have paid £200 pounds to go see that show, at the end it brought me to tears, it was that good, the whole trip was amazing, and to think we only had one dissapointment..............welli think we did ok. :)

"how doe's he sell any tickets with reviews like these?"

A lot of people will go to see anything in Vegas if they can get cheap enough tickets, and not surprisingly given the poor reviews, it's really easy to find discount tickets for Believe. Last time I was at Luxor, there were employees around the casino and shops handing out 50% off coupons.
