AT THE LUXOR
‘Believe’ in a delayed Criss Angel show
The first ticketed shows of "Criss Angel — Believe," at the Luxor have been delayed two weeks, from Sept. 12 to Sept. 26.
The announcement shortens the window for designated previews of the new Cirque du Soleil production, as the opening night gala is still set for Oct. 10.
A news release cites the show’s "enormous complexities and technical precision" as the reason for scrapping two weeks of ticketed performances. Ticket holders can choose between a refund or re-scheduling; call 800-557-7428 for information.
"We are all working hard to bring this dream to reality and we can’t unveil this creation to the world until all the elements are perfected," Angel said in a statement. "I know that once we open the doors, the audience will have one of the most amazing live show experiences of their lives."
The show previously was pushed back in late June, with Oct. 12 two weeks later than the original target date.
