One of the shows that my wife was looking forward to most was the Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage. She is a huge Beatles fan; we even went to Liverpool and went on the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour while on our honeymoon.
I initially bought the tickets 24 hours before by calling the box office claiming that I had a two-for-one deal (you can usually get away with this without actually having a coupon). They did not take me up on the two-for-one, but they did offer me 20% off. I didn’t want to fuss with it anymore so I just booked tickets for two seats. My cousin lives in Las Vegas and frequents many of the shows on the Strip. He recommended that we should sit in the middle because the middle is the best way to experience the big finale. Our tickets were in section C 206, 205, 204, or 203. After seeing the show, I would recommend being in the front row of section C or the rear of section A which is 101-108. The seating map looks a bit weird and is in the shape of the Union Jack
We went to the show on Monday. We decided to attend the later show because we thought it would be less crowded. Since we were staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel it was only about a 15-minute walk to the Mirage. We got there a little early in hopes of using a two-for-one deal drink coupon from the My Vegas app, but it turns out that the bar was closed on Mondays. So we did not have any more coins after that because it takes 24 hours to have the coins returned to us. So we decided to play Roulette to kill a bit of time. No luck there. And everyone at the table seems to have a grumpy Gus face on, which was weird.
Before we knew it, the time had come for us to get in line and we saw that people were stuck lining up all throughout the bars and then even into the casino area. We kind of took a nonchalant approach and found gaps where people were moving forward and sort of zippered in like you do when getting onto the freeway. So we saved about 10 minutes time in line that way. We did get a couple specialty Beatles drinks because why the hell not. They were pretty strong and tasty and the best part was that they came in a 32-ounce commemorative cup that we were able to take home with us as a souvenir.
The show was great, but it didn’t engage more of a storyline and I had hoped personally but the acrobats were entertaining and I even had my butt hole pucker a few times with some of the wild stunts, but then I saw they were connected to a wire!
