MJFanGirl & Las Vegas?

I love to travel.

I’ve been blessed and fortunate to visit several countries and look forward to exploring more of the world when I get the chance.

I have done more international travel than domestic, which is something that I plan on changing this upcoming year. I have heard rave reviews from both Michael Jackson fan friends and critics on the new Michael Jackson Cirque Du Soleil show ONE. I wrote on the blog about a year back with my experience seeing Immortal and it not really impressing me much. ONE is supposed to be totally different. The show focuses more on Michael's creative genius, which sounds a lot more enjoyable then the Rock n Roll style of Immortal.

So, I've been thinking...

& It only makes sense to head back to Vegas in 2014 to experience the town in all of it's glory (while getting in some awesome Michaeling!). Here is a list of things I would recommend trying for any Michael Jackson fan visiting Las Vegas. 

7 Things to do in Las Vegas for Michael Jackson Fans

7. Play a Michael Jackson slot machine. 

Just do it! I've never really won much besides a couple hundred dollars here or there but, if nothing else- play this game for the awesome experience of sitting back and playing a game set to the soundtrack of Michael! These machines should not be hard to find, as they are one of the most money-making and popular slot machines out there. 

6. Visit Madame Tussaud's wax museum. 

If you have never been to one of the famous wax museums, visiting Las Vegas is the perfect opportunity to do so. I must warn you, the MJ figures never really look MUCH like him but... it's still kinda cool to see his exact height, stature etc. 

5. See Legends in Concert. 

I have never personally seen this show but, my parents and other friends I know have. They feature 4 or 5 legends per show ranging from Elvis, to Lady Gaga, to Madonna, to of course, Michael Jackson. Check the official site here to be sure that you like the line-up before you attend. 

4. See MJ LIVE - a Michael Jackson tribute show at the Rio Hotel. 

My friend V. is one of the biggest MJ fans I know and she LOVED this tribute show when she recently visited Las Vegas. I plan on booking seats for sure!

3. Browse the Regis Galerie in the Shops at the Venetian

Who could forget about this? (link here) All Michael Jackson fans must see "Living With Michael Jackson" the Martin Bashir interview. We all know that this is the moment that arguably caused somewhat of a downward spiral for Michael and his image but, to me it's mandatory for all MJ fans to see from start to finish. Michael loved the Shops at the Venetian hotel and this was the very FIRST thing I did when I visited Las Vegas a couple years back. I won't say that I felt Michael's spirit or anything but, it was sort of cool to see the shops up close and in-person!

2. See Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature- The Motown Show. 

I went to see this two summers ago and it was one of the best shows I have seen. I even had an ABC cocktail while enjoying the performance! Human Nature is a pop group from Australia that perform all of our favorite Motown hits, by both the male and female groups that shaped the music of a generation. Don't take my word for it- check Tripadvisor here, the show is rated #18 of all attractions in Las Vegas.

1. See Michael Jackson ONE! 

GO SEE THIS... 'nuff said. When I go see Michael Jackson ONE, I will be sure to come back and post my honest review. 

So what are some of your top things to do in Las Vegas? 
Did I miss anything, MJfamily?

  1. My husband and I went to Vegas for our honeymoon specifically so we could see ONE. We had our ONE tickets purchased before we even had our flights and hotel booked, LOL! We stayed at Mandalay Bay, where the show is, and our room cards had MJ on them! I have to tell you, ONE is the single most amazing show I've ever seen in my life! I had played the MJ slot machines before, because we have them at our local casino, but of course I played them again in Vegas, just because. :) We went to Madame Tussauds and I had lots of photos taken with the MJ wax figure. I've seen photos of previous MJ wax figures and ones in other locations, but really was really impressed with the one that we saw while we were there in August (the Smooth Criminal Michael). My husband also had his photo taken doing the Smooth Criminal slant thanks to some photo trickery at the museum. We went to the beautiful Shops at the Venetian, and although we didn't go inside the Regis, I did have my photo taken standing in front of it.


thanks for commenting, #MJfam! xx
