Criss Angel To Close “BELIEVE” at The Luxor


Criss Angel BelieveDuring our visit to Las Vegas earlier this month for the S.A.M. National conference, The Magic Compass heard that Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil will be shutting down Believe at the Luxor. Now we can confirm the rumor, the long-running “Believe” will end April 17 and will be replaced by “Mindfreak Live!” on May 11.

In a recent interview Angel said, “I believe it will be my greatest work to date. It gives me a license to create what I’ve always wanted to do, things I’ve been working on for many, many years.”

Cirque du Soleil will continue as producer in the new effort, which stems from the show Angel has performed on tour across the United States. Angel will carry the title of executive producer and director. “I have no handcuffs on me at all,” he said.

Criss Angel“With this show, I’m able to start from scratch and not have to repurpose things and work within the parameters of Cirque du Soleil,” he said. “I have the freedom to start from the ground up and really see through what my vision really is. And it’s an ambitious vision, but one that is incredibly different (from ‘Believe’).”

Angel said the new show will use new 3-D immersion effects, cutting-edge video walls and a new levitation technique. It will be connected with an autobiographical thread. “The show essentially is the evolution of Criss Angel,” he says. “For people who don’t know me, they’ll get to understand who I am and understand the genesis of my career and how I got to where I’m at.”

Criss Angel“It’s very theatrical,” he adds, with less of him talking to the audience than in the current show. “I’m going back to things I’ve done and performing them in the form that I did them years ago. People will really get to understand and see my career and what affects me in my personal life.”
