@Expert Textpert You could go ahead and get the martini glass, shot glass, coffee mug, and a t-shirt before you go out to see the show.

Just to have it in the thread, here's a link to the show's website.

@AppleScruffJunior  I just realized that you created this thread. You do have a lot of heart for Love. If you land in NYC and want to get to Vegas for the show, we will need to head westward. Eastward would take you back across the ocean to Ireland.

Yeah, the "east" comment threw me off a little.  That looks like some nice merchandise.  I'm not sure it's tacky enough for @AppleScruffJunior.  You know I'm all about buying Beatles stuff.  I had actually been daydreaming about all that merchandise and what it might look like.  Too bad all of you can't come with us on our trip.  That would be really fun!

*feels guilty about not being aware of where the major Irish cities are. pulls up a map of Ireland*

Ireland has 32,599 square miles. My home state has 48,430 square miles, and the state I live in now has 69,957 square miles. I've driven all over my home state and most of my current state (except the panhandle). Now it makes it easier to visualize (wrap my head around) the trips you mention that you make. They always seemed so far flung.

Driving to Vegas for the show would take me on a journey of 1,079 miles.

Hi everybody, I'm a new poster, who hasn't posted often because of school, and life! But, I've seen the show four times. While that sounds impressive my parents, ten times! While that sounds absolutely insane, they will tell you, every time they have seen it something changes. I've done the backstage tour they also offer, it is truly priceless. You get to see some of the inner workings of the show. I'm not going to give it away, but it is awesome. The tour guides were great, and totally huge fans. A must see for Beatle die hards. As for seats, there isn't a bad seat in the house. I would recommend closer to the stage. Every seat, however offers its own unique view. You'll see things better in one seat, than another.

 

Make sure you order a Here Comes The Sun drink before the show!

I would love to offer some answers if you have any questions!

Apple Scruff Jr. said to see the back stage tour of LOVE, but I don't see any way to do it without buying the VIP package that includes a ticket, and we already have our tickets. Is there any way to do this without buying the VIP package?

Made it to Vegas, made it to the Hotel it was playing in, but it was sold out!  paul-mccartney

Did check out the store, but I found it was really just  "money grab" Beatle Love stuff, for my liking. blue-meanie  To each their own.....

So, here is a synopsis of my trip to see LOVE.

We got to Vegas and the first thing we did was check out the gift shop. It was underwhelming and overpriced. I ended up getting a round tray with the cover photo of With The Beatles on it. The most interesting thing about the shop is this Hofner bass autographed by all four Beatles--John in 1974, Paul in 2002, George in 1991, and Ringo undated. The guitar belonged to a guy named Dave.

IMG_1073-1.jpgImage Enlarger

Then we went to Planet Hollywood, which was formerly called The Aladdin, which was the place where Elvis was married--just to say I'd been there.

IMG_1078.jpgImage Enlarger

The Hard Rock Hotel had some interesting things, such as a guitar and outfit belonging to Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain's lab coat, a guitar echo machine used by Syd Barrett, and a keyboard used by Pink Floyd. Here is a picture of one of the posters drawn for the Montreal Bed-In for Peace.

IMG_1098.jpgImage Enlarger

We ate at Hard Rock Cafe, where I saw some more interesting things, such as a shirt worn by Elvis in Paradise Hawaiian Style, Roy Orbison's guitar, and a hooded robe worn by Jimi Hendrix. Here is a photo of a guitar that Elvis smashed because it wouldn't stay in tune. One of the strings is broken.

IMG_1103.jpgImage Enlarger

They also had a postcard sent by Dezo Hoffman that was signed by all the Beatles.

IMG_1104.jpgImage Enlarger

We went back into the Hard Rock Hotel looking for Elvis's jumpsuit, which they weren't displaying this month. But we saw this cool display of vintage Beatles toys:

IMG_1108.jpgImage Enlarger

We also went to the Westgate Las Vegas Hotel, where Elvis performed a string of shows in 1970, and saw a statue of Elvis dedicated by his father and the colonel, many of his personal effects, part of his wardrobe, and the last car he ever bought.

Here is Elvis's gold-plated handgun:

IMG_1113.jpgImage Enlarger

And one of the shirts we saw:

IMG_1119.jpgImage Enlarger

And his Lincoln Continental. I touched the back right fender, even though the sign said not to touch the exhibit (Elvis told me to).

IMG_1125.jpgImage Enlarger

This is the Beatles lounge at The Mirage. We didn't have a drink, because I don't drink anymore. There are chairs in the shape of big letters that spell "R E V O L U T I O N."

IMG_1136.jpgImage Enlarger

And photography is not allowed at the LOVE show, but I took this photo of the way it looks before the show begins. It starts out looking very blue, with a blue sky and floating clouds, while instrumental Beatles songs play.

IMG_1138.jpgImage Enlarger

I'll try to give my impression of the show without giving too much away. There are many colorful characters, some of whom I recognized from Beatles songs. The show visually depicts the impact The Beatles made on post-war England, and is a musical metaphor for the struggle between the forces of love and the forces of oppression in the world. The show is very surreal and psychedelic, and maintains a strong emotional appeal throughout. The sound system is very good, and there are recordings of humorous conversations between The Beatles that I had never heard before between the songs. There are various screens, some of which fall from the ceiling, on which various moving images of The Beatles are shown, mostly in silhouette. It somehow felt very personal, as if I was with The Beatles themselves.

Listening to the soundtrack doesn't do it justice. I would say this is an experience that you should have if you are able. The soundtrack makes much more sense when you hear it in conjunction with the show, and the songs really take on new meaning--I noticed things about the lyrics that I hadn't heard before. Also, if you are going, make sure to sit up high. There are parts of the show that those who are sitting closer to the action down below can't see. In one part, we could see what was happening, but we were in one of only two rows in our section that could see (we were in the top row--row "S"-- of section 209). We got discounted seats from The Mirage website. The seats down below, closer to the stage, are more expensive.

Thank you @Expert Textpert a very in-depth review of the show's experience. But I did learn something- you're a rulebreaker!!! You touched Elvis' car, and you took a picture of the show! Naughty, naughty, naughty!!!

Yes, I've always been a rebel. That's probably why John is my favorite.

And let me tell you, touching Elvis's Lincoln was a great experience. I felt like I was on a pilgrimage, touching a saint's relic.

But that Hofner is right-handed (contrary to popular belief). If I want to buy a guitar or a bass I at least want to be able to play it. Damn it.

I get it, ExTex. I once touched a painting by Monet at an exhibit in Portland, OR. It gave me chills.

Thanks for sharing your adventure with us. Sounds like you had a great time.mal-evans
