While some of our favorite shows have re-invented themselves (Blue Man Group is now bigger with "balls" and "robots" at Monte Carlo, and Jersey Boys gets romantic at Paris), Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil debuted this winter at ARIA to rave reviews. The landmark Stratosphere Hotel reveals the retro-sexy PIN UP, while The Venetian turns it up to 11 with Rock of Ages, where the music is for real and the seats are all good ones. Prepare for over-the-top entertainment when music superstar Britney Spears brings a resident show to Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood!
The array of new and revamped shows in town will have you working up an appetite, and Vegas is more ready than ever to satisfy it. Outrageous celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opens two new venues, Gordon Ramsay's Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, and the casual BurGR at Planet Hollywood. Expand your palate at the 500-plus-choice Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, where indulgence takes on a new meaning.
You can burn off all those calories on the newest dance floors in town, where the world's top DJs spin nightly. Body English is back underground at the Hard Rock Hotel, where sister venue, Vinyl, features live music from your favorite performers in an intimate setting. Downtown Vegas is rockin' nightly with the new Fremont Street Country Club and Backstage Billiards in the heart of East Fremont Entertainment District.
And when you're ready to call it a night, or a morning, as the case may be, head back to your Stay Well room at MGM Grand. It's one of the largest hotels in the world, but it's the little things it excels at. Relax and rejuvenate each night with vitamin C shower infusions, dawn-simulator alarm clocks, a wellness channel and more.
In Vegas, life happens spontaneously, but one thing you can always count on is discovering something wonderful and new each time you visit.
