There is absolutely no shortage of shows in Vegas to see after you have picked up some Sour Diesel from any one of the quality Las Vegas dispensaries.

Which ever one you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
Absinthe, Caesars Palace Tickets
Located in the Roman Plaza just steps from the front entrance of Caesars Palace, “Absinthe” the show is just as enticing as the popular drink of the same name. Hosted by The Gazillionaire — a slick-haired, unreserved and crass yet charismatic character — “Absinthe” features an assortment of incredible specialty acts of old-world burlesque, daring feats of strength and agility and not-so-common routines that, when combined, make for a variety show that one might only envision in their wildest dreams — or after the green fairy has lured you into a liquid-induced trance of sorts. Described by some as naughty, racy and over-the-top with amazing performers and personalities, this variety show manages to tap into burlesque while keeping every aspect of the production very Vegas. This adults-only, circus-style spectacular combines old-world burlesque with outrageous comedy and let’s just say that the language and topics of discussion are not suitable for brunch with grandma…unless your grandma is into that sort of thing, of course.
Blue Man Group, Monte Carlo Tickets
If you’re looking for an interactive, avant garde, no language barrier, kooky, weird and visually stimulating, look no further than “Blue Man Group.” Blue Man Group sprinkles its show with variety acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company’s signature music, played on fantastical invented instruments. Lighting and special effects bolster the effect of the beats, but Blue Man Group is not a show with a soundtrack — it’s a soundtrack with a show.
Le Reve, Wynn Tickets
Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, at Wynn Las Vegas. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling (that at times releases heavy waterfalls), or running through the theater and alongside the audience. Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next.
Love, Mirage Tickets
Combining the original pop-rock group with Cirque’s artistic imagery is a masterstroke of brilliance, but the show doesn’t just string together a roster of the Fab Four’s greatest hits. LOVE uses a range of tunes—nearly 30 in all—from the group to frame a mini-history of their rise to stardom and subsequent breakup. A rotating cast of performing characters such as Eleanor Rigby, the Fool, the Walrus, and others bring the songs to life, while the audience falls under the spell of Beatlemania a second time.
“O”, Bellagio Tickets
O by Cirque du Soleil is an whimsical and visually stunning show that transports audiences into a fantastical world of wonderment and awe with the use stunning acrobatics surrounded by air, fire and, most prominently, water.
