Looking for show suggestions

I am going to be in Vegas Oct 25-29. I will be going with my wife and 2 other couples. We are all 25-26 years old. The wife and I went last year and saw Peepshow and loved it.

We are looking for a good show recommendation for this year. I have heard good things about Zumanity and Love. Is there anything better that I should check out? We do not mind adult themed shows obviously. I don't think any of us have ever seen a Cirque show.

Also is looks like Absinthe is not playing during the time we will be there, or maybe their calendar isn't very up to date. :(

Love is much more CdS than Zumanity so if you're looking for Cirqe that's your show.

Absinthe is still scheduled to end in Sept. But keep your eye on it in case they can work an extension.

I think for a first time Cirque show O is a good choice. Blue man group was really fun, but it's definately a aquired taste.

Terry Fator is also a very good show.

I have seen 45+ shows in Las Vegas. The entertainment is one of the reasons I go there. For me, not everyone, gambling is only a small part of my Las Vegas vacations. I am easily entertained and not picky. I have enjoyed some of the free or cheap shows as much as shows I paid $100+ for.

My favorite shows (in no particular order):

Mystere, Ka, Love, Phantom, Lion King, Barry Manilow, Celine Dion, Menopause the Musical, Gordy Brown (at Golden Nugget downtown), Lon Bronson's All Star Band (Thursdays off strip at Green Valley Ranch), Frankie Moreno (plays various restaurants and lounges, google him), Clint Holmes (on tour, sometimes plays at Suncoast), Mac King (Tues.-Sat., 1 & 3 p.m., Harrah’s)

Legends in Concert is fun. We have seen it maybe four times. If you like impersonators, it is a good show.

I think "O" is one of the best Cirque productions I have ever seen. I also enjoyed Mystere and KA. Phantom is a great theatre production.

mystere is the most pure cirque show. 1st one in vegas. Cirque de Soleil= Circus of the sun. Mystere gives you the most wow moments, unbelievable acrobats, clowns, interaction and so on.

Surprised you said you've read good things about zumanity. it isn't sexy, isn't funny. it's bad benny hill skits. I love KA more than Mystere- but for a 1st Cirque,, always say Mystere. Phantom was amazing, and liked Blue Man both times seen
