Sayonara Viva Elvis!

Aria Presley Seat

The great and powerful Norm! is reporting that:

Cirque du Soleil informed "Viva Elvis" cast at 3 p.m. meeting today that MGM Intn'l will replace Aria show @ CityCenter at end of 2012.

We all knew from the get go - with our gut being our only evidence - that this show wasn't going to work. The announcement that Cirque would "de-Elvis" the show didn't help things either.... the problem isn't Elvis, it is Cirque du Soleil.

Time to change out the chips!

Comments & Discussion:

At first I was kind of upset that I was completely shitfaced and didn't remember any of the show. But after hearing all the reviews, I guess I didn't miss much.

They should pay homage to the truncated Harmon Tower by doing a show featuring midgets. They should pay homage to Murren's "vision" by featuring a horse's ass.

Maybe since the hotel's named Aria, they can replace it with an opera...to bad Pavarotti is dead, or it would've been a perfect place for a Vegas residency by the Three Tenors...though I guess in Vegas it would more likely be an opera-themed Cirque du soleil production, or at the very least they could try & steal "Phantom" from the Venetian...

Does this mean they will be removing the Elvis bust in the lobby by the casino?

Fingers crossed for an outside-the-box-for-MGM solution.

The only way for Cirque Du Soleil to fix itself is to rehire Franco Dragone.

It was Franco Dragone that made Cirque Du Soleil successful in the first place.

Well, that's no shock. Who thought Elvis was ever going to be a good fit for Cirque du Solei, much less that particular hotel. If anything KISS would have been a better fit.

Eh, they'll probably just move the MJ show in there and be done with it.

rather sad that it has to go, but even worse that these people have to be excitd for a FULL YEAR before they show goes away for good.

Aria location sure does not help, for those that might walk to the show from another hotel.
