All you need is 'Love'

So - 'Love' by Cirque du Soleil at The Mirage in Vegas. I'm not one for acrobatic shows. But I do like Beatles music. So when Darlene suggested we see the show (she had seen it already), I thought - why not. At least the music will be good.

If you're my age, you probably remember going to a planetarium to see a laser light show accompanying your favourite music of the day. This is way better. Without giving too much away, it's a feast for the eyes and the ears. The show is a choreographed masterpiece, taking advantage of every square foot of available space to show you stuff. Up, down and all around. There's really no bad seat in the house. In fact, I would suggest that the farther back you are, the better your view would be. The only caveat is that if you can't see long distance, you might want to sit closer, but otherwise, it's all good.

Not only is Love a visual spectacle, it's a wall of sound too. They did not skimp on the audio setup and they put speakers in the seats behind your head, so everyone gets a surround effect. They must have cleaned up the original Beatles sound too, because the quality of the audio is amazing.

You're not allowed to take pictures, but they will offer to take your picture for a fee, naturally. The show doesn't play every day, so check which days are 'silent' and plan accordingly.
