Confession 23 - Beatles Love Cirque de Soleil Show

Hi everyone! Today I'm confessing about an out of body experience I had watching the acclaimed Cirque de Soleil Show, Beatles Love. Yes, you heard that right! I know, "what happens in Vegas is suppose to STAY in Vegas", but I had such a great time and experience this past weekend,  I just had to share, {squeal}  I highly recommend a trip to Vegas just to see this show, it really is that awesome!

I'm a huge Beatles Fan (I know another confession right?) and watching this show brought back all the memories from my teenage years ... see a trend?  I remember listening to The Beatles on multiple road-trips and my senior trip to Europe. Any Beatles lovers know that listening to their music transports you back to the times when you first experienced it.

The music in the show isn't live like all the other Cirque shows, but is newly remastered, and wow, they did such an awesome job! The show director is French and translates that beautiful musical sense that other French musicals have.  I found so many similarities with this show's tone and feel as I did with Les Miserables.  Over $100  million dollars went into making the stage, and man oh man is it {{amazing}}. So much movement it brought to the show.  We sat higher up, and this would have not been so fun with most other shows, but for this show it was just perfect! I truly believe there was not one bad seat in the house!

I sat in awe watching the dancers, listening to the music and watching a story-line that started back in the World War II era. I began to reflect in the shock and awe of realizing what awesome songwriters and musicians The Beatles were.  Some of my favorite songs were Blackbird and Sgt.Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band along with Hey Jude and My Guitar Gently Weeps.

And... that's all I have to say, I'm nearly speechless.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my latest confession!
