Father’s Day Treats
Nathan Burton – Planet Hollywood
Nathan Burton got his big break on NBC’s “The World’s Wildest Magic” (1996). From there, he rocketed to stardom, and now has his own show on the Las Vegas Strip. He’s been in Vegas for the past 18 years, and it’s little wonder why his show is so successful. Filled with showgirls, illusions, magic, and comedy, Burton’s show is fun for the whole family. One fantastic illusion is done with an oversized sketch pad, where Burton makes illustrations come to life; another, is his great escape from a BBQ. Tickets start at $17.00
David Copperfield – MGM Grand
David Copperfield has been hailed as the “greatest illusionist of our time,” and judging by the reviews of his show, we’re inclined to believe it. With teleportation, sawing a person in half, and more, Copperfield has wowed audiences for decades, and continues to do so in Las Vegas! Tickets start at $84.00.
Matt Franco – The LINQ
Matt Franco won season 9 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” and has been proving his win ever since. His incredible illusions, his charisma, and his willingness to teach just a few of his tricks, make this show unforgettable. He also shares enrapturing personal stories of how he started magic, and why it captivates him to this day. Tickets start at $80.00.
Chris Angel’s MINDFREAK – The Luxor
MINDFREAK is part magic, part cirque. Featuring acrobats, dancers, musical performances, lasers, pyrotechnics, and more, this show is guaranteed to delight and awe. Angel’s illusions, from sleight of hand to 3D special effects tricks, are extraordinary, and you do not want to miss out on this mind-warping adventure! Tickets start at $75.00.
Penn & Teller – Rio Suite
Penn & Teller have been around for ages, and there’s a reason for it. This perfect match will keep you laughing and gasping in equal measure. While Penn narrates and provides a running commentary for the audience on the illusions and hilarity that ensues, Teller executes most of the show’s action, and stays completely silent. The show features sleight of hand, needle swallowing, knife throwing, and more. Tickets start at $65.00.
