Criss Angel Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas Luxor

Today I attended the press conference for Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil @ the Luxor. The show will open in summer of 2008. Criss Angel is releasing his first book, "Criss Angel MINDFREAK: Secret Revelations" in April 2007 (Harper Collins).Criss Angel has been named Magician of The Year five years in a row. He's currently taping the 70th episode of his tv show Criss Angel MINDFREAK at the Luxor Hotel in Las Veags.

There are Cirque du Soleil productions in 130 cities word wide. There will be six Cirque du Soleil shows in MGM properties in Las Vegas when this show begins. Mystere is at T.I, O is in Bellagio, Zumanity is in New York, New York, KA is in the MGM Grand, The Beatles LOVE is in the MIRAGE.

I was invited by Jessica Berlin, Assistant PR manager of Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas.

Criss Angel's mother was in attendance as well as at least one of Criss' brothers.

This video contains 2 minutes of photographs in a slide show style presentation. There is a nine and one-half minute speech from Criss Angel with his description of his career's development leading to this 'pinnacle' of creating a show with Cirque du Soleil.

Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, said:

"We are always looking for partners who are able to support crazy ideas and great new shows. MGM is that partner. We've been dreaming for many years to get involved with magic with our shows. We have been lucky to partner with the best for opportunities such as The Beatles LOVE. The Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil cd is currently the number one selling cd world-wide."

I was very pleased to run into my good friend Judy Thornburn,of Vegas Around The Clock and The Flick Chicks. "Vegas Around The Clock" receives over 17 million visits per month!

The Flick Chicks is a web site dedicated to film review from the females point of view.
