Vegas is famous for its extravagant shows and performances, and nothing showcases that better than Cirque Du Soleil. Cirque’s not the only show in town, however. From breathtaking magic shows to legendary musical acts to comedic wonders, there’s a show for everyone in Vegas.
Here is a selection of the top non-Cirque Du Soleil shows in Las Vegas right now:
Blue Man Group
The Blue Man Group is a Las Vegas staple. Located at Luxor Resort & Casino, this show will have you grinning from ear to ear.
The Blue Man Group puts on a performance featuring rock, comedy, and lots of neon paint. Described as a “multi-sensory experience,” the Blue Man Group is famous for using PVC pipe drums to send paint splattering across the stage. You can even get souvenir drumsticks after the show.

With jousting, sword fights, and other Arthurian-inspired exploits, the most entertaining aspect of this show is the audience’s involvement. Each section of the theater represents a ‘country’ related to the story, with audience members encouraged to cheer for their knighted champions as they battle.
