All You Need Is Love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say, but you can learn
How to play the game
And after 10 years Cirque has done just that by playing the Vegas entertainment roulette game and making it look easy for a decade. Astoundingly, LOVE has succeeded for so many different reasons chief among them that the show has outlived the eight-year recording career of The Beatles themselves!
LOVE celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage here in Las Vegas. This joint artistic venture marked the first time that The Beatles company, Apple Corps Ltd., had agreed to a major theatrical partnership. The project was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté.
FAB FACT: LOVE has won 3 Grammys: 2 for the LOVE sound track and 1 for the “making-of” documentary, All Together Now”
The most recent cataclysmic changes to the show have been made by the late great Beatles producer George Martin’s son, Chris Martin, who is now the caretaker to the Beatles’ musical legacy. In a recent issue of Las Vegas Weekly Martin was quoted to say, “We felt that if we were going to preserve the integrity of the show, we needed to do something new. We first did this show 10 years ago, and it was groundbreaking it still is groundbreaking, but it was 10 years ago.” So, the LOVE team convened last year, and went to work to refresh and overhaul the show, and have done so without losing the heart of what has made it an unequivocal hit.
The imagery of John, Paul, George, and Ringo in the past production was sparse and limited for a variety of reasons, this is the no longer the case as there are now more Beatles. As Martin says, the band is so iconic, and “so damn popular, still.” Which left little doubt that fans want to feel their visual presence more powerfully.
FAB FACT: The LOVE theatre features 24 digital projectors that are used in the show. Everything is digital from source to screen, making very large high definition digital 100’ wide panoramic images
Unseen but also significant is the upgrades to the theatre’s sound system. Martin said that he” begged and bartered” for new speakers throughout the venue. “When they were originally done, it was innovative to have three speakers in a seat. But they were not great quality, and now we have units that are better quality new speakers all the way through the theatre.”
FAB FACT: The Love Theatre at the Mirage has over 6,300 speakers in the theater, (compared to 78 at Mystère), specifically to achieve one of the most panoramic surround, IMAX for the ears, systems in the world. each seat is fitted with new speakers in order to hear the Beatles’ music like it’s never been heard before
The master audio was also totally remixed by Martin who is as adept with digital sound as his father was with audio tape. “We rebuilt the entire show from the better-sounding quality audio. All of the original music was redone, and we now have the very best possible sound in this theater.” A built in desk has also been constructed where Martin can toggle between the original and upgraded tracks, allowing for the show to be remixed art anytime.
FAB FACT: Total Beatle albums sold: 2,303,500,000
Let’s not kid ourselves, the Beatles were the biggest band on the planet, period. Over 2 billion albums sold! Come on! How many people have sold 2 billion of anything let alone recorded music? Their recording studio may as well have been a money printing mint.
We here at Destination Fabulous, set out to create our version of “Beatlemania” with an event that falls under our ever impressive Couture Events portfolio known as; MEET THE FAB FOUR. Our “Fabmania” is a term we use to describe the intense fan frenzy directed toward the British rock band during the early years of their success that you and your guests will experience at this event.
“Ladies and Gentlemen… Meet The Fab Four!”
The “FAB FOUR:” Four mop-topped lads from Liverpool who forever changed the world of music. Destination Fabulous, Las Vegas DMC is proud to present the ultimate FAB-FOUR-themed Las Vegas event: “MEET THE FAB FOUR.” So put on your “Nehru” suit, don your “mop-top” wig, and get ready to “leave all your troubles far away” as our “Sergeant” strikes up the band!
Your fabulous top-tier FAB FOUR event experience begins at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip as you and your guests enjoy a spectacular performance of Cirque de Soleil’s “The Beatles Love” show. Then you and your guests are invited to an exclusive “after party” featuring an optional post-show “meet and greet” with select cast members of the aforementioned Love show (based on availability).
This “Mystical Mystery Tour” post-show party begins as you and your guests walk down the red carpet past a gauntlet of flashbulb-popping “paparazzi” before entering our “Yellow Submersible.” Your senses take in a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, and the multi-colored “psychedelic” décor that can only be described as “a real trip.” Brightly illuminated highboy tables dot the room and white furniture groupings with glowing end tables, lava lamps and lighted bean bag chairs add to the sensory stimulation. Huge posters and historic photos of the FAB FOUR adorn the walls as “Sixties Go-Go dancers” rock to the beat of the group’s unforgettable songbook of fabulous hits. FAB FOUR lookalikes and outrageously clad atmosphere models, mingle with guests; affording plenty of “photo op” and “selfie” moments.
Colorfully costumed servers offer tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, and there’s also a lavish buffet with carving station featuring a British-inspired menu of “bangers and mash,” “fish and chips,” “shepherd’s pie,” “Yorkshire pudding,” and “Beef Wellington.” Additionally, multiple bar stations pour a variety of beverages, including top-shelf liquors, Guinness beers, Irish whiskey, and the event’s signature “Beetlejuice” cocktail.
The highlight of our musically-themed Las Vegas event is when a FAB FOUR tribute band takes the stage to artfully perform the unmistakable sounds of the world’s most influential musical foursome. So go ahead and sing along (“It’s easy if you try”) as we celebrate the most influential and beloved rock band of all time.
(Special note: The “MEET THE FAB FOUR” Las Vegas event can be produced at other Las Vegas-area venues by eliminating the top-tier “Cirque de Soleil’s The Beatles Love” show and meet and greet component at The Mirage as outlined above.)
So if you are ready to “Imagine” a different and unique Las Vegas event that will have your guests remembering the soundtrack of their “Yesterdays,” then all you’ll need is “a little help from your friends” at Destination Fabulous, Las Vegas’ premier destination management and event-production company.
Because, We love you…(yeah, yeah – you know the rest!)
Peace & Love,
