Las Vegas magic shows aren’t what they used to be – they’re even better. Audiences will not only be dazzled by sleight-of-hand tricks and mind-blowing illusions, but also, music, lights, dancers and pyrotechnics make these productions a can’t-miss. Don’t believe us? Catch these five amazing magic acts in Vegas and see for yourself:
Penn & Teller
The dynamic duo that is Penn & Teller has been creating magic together for 40 years. They know what works and what doesn’t, and because of this knowledge, they are able to bring audiences a stunning production full of laughs and jaw-dropping magic. The pair has been performing at the Rio for 10-plus years and yet, it’s hard to say exactly what you’ll see at their show. A showgirl eating knives? A duck? We’re not sure, but that’s part of the fun. Penn & Teller also like to share secrets behind their best tricks.
You can’t think of Las Vegas magicians without thinking of David Copperfield. The legendary artist has made the Statue of Liberty disappear, walked through the Great Wall of China and many more unforgettable illusions. Like Penn & Teller, Copperfield has spent decades honing his craft and now he is one of the must-see performers on the Strip. He likes to involve audience members in his shows so get ready to become a part of something magical.
