My boyfriend and I went to see THRILLUSIONS on Saturday, September 27th at the Harrah's Theater, and we absolutely loved it! I usually have trouble dragging him to shows, because he's not really the musical type, but this was different. This is more like a rock concert had a baby with a magician, and it really appealed to both of us.
There were three ""celebrity"" acts: Tina Turner, Rod Stewart and Prince (well, not really them, but I believed it!). I was swooning at Prince and loving Tina's witty banter with the audience, while my boyfriend was absolutely fascinated by the illusions. I think he was also a little too fascinated with the Thrillicious Dancers (ahem), but I guess I can't really blame him -- those girls are gorgeous, and boy can they dance!
All in all, I was really impressed by the production value of this show, and it was just plain old fun! We left laughing and singing along, and couldn't wait to meet all the characters face-to-face afterwards in the lobby. I hope this show comes back to Harrah's, because I want to see it again, and next time, bring a few more friends! I think it would be even more fun for a group.
Oh, and did I mention that James Brandon (the illusionist) is a total hottie? ;-)
It was great to see a Las Vegas quality performance right here in New Orleans! The magic was amazing, and I actually felt like I was watching Tina Turner up close and personal. I have seen Tina live many, many times, and I actually felt like I was watching and listening to her from only a few feet away. But I never got to HUG TINA after a concert like I did after seeing Thrillusions!!! Bravo!!! The dancers were energetic and gorgeous, and the Prince and Rod Stewart acts were a great compliment to Tina's unforgettable performance!!! The magic tricks were truly magical. How do you get people out of such a little box??? I will definitely see it again!!!

I've heard a lot about this show from my friends and I finally got to see it. I was so excited about the it, but my boyfriend didn't feel like going out that night; after the show he thanked me for taking him there. He thought it was REAL Tina Turner:))) We still discuss some of the magic tricks: How did he do it? Where did that come from? We had such a great time. I felt like I was in Vegas. Highly recommended!!! Go see Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, and Prince. WOW!!!
A friend of mine had an extra ticket to Friday's show. I really didn't know what to expect since I had never heard of Thrillusions before and didn't see any advertising for it around town. As soon as the dancer's performed the opening number I knew this was going to be a great show. They looked amazing! They were polished in their choreography and full of attitude. I thought it was cool how the magician made all the singers (Rod, Tina, and Prince) magically appear to perform their greatest hits. I appreciated the fact that everyone sang live. I used to be in the arts when I was younger, so I know talent when I see it...everyone in this show did their part to make it shine! I would definately love to see the show again. I wish it was longer then just one weekend!!
I have been to many Las Vegas shows having lived out west for several years and now that I live in New Orleans, I believe that the THRILLUSIONS show complements New Orleans. Its the ?whole package,? you have visually mesmerizing dancers, captivating magic by James Brandon and the musical talents of Rob as almost ?Rod Stewart,? Hollie as ?Tina Turner? and Vince as ?Prince.? This is a must see show! I saw the show 3 out of 4 nights and I cannot wait for the return of THRILLUSIONS to New Orleans.
I seen the show on Friday night and was once again BLOWN AWAY as I was the first time I have seen it. Hollie Vest as ""Tina"" Vince as ""Prince"" Rob as ""Rod Stewart"" was amazing along with James Brandon. The Dancers was high energy as well you sit on the edge of your seat with the entired show. This show is the best I have ever seen in New Orleans Thanks to Harrahs for such a great show. I can't wait till it returns again I will be there every show. You have a devoted fan now that will always be there to enjoy a first class show. You can't see something this GREAT in Vegas. Wish you would come back durning the christmas holidays that would be such a great present to give to someone.

THRILLUSIONS WILL THRILL AND ENTERTAIN YOU. THE IMPERSONATERS OF TINA, PRINCE, AND ROD WERE AMAZING. THE MAGICIAN JAMES BRANDON WAS THE GREATEST. MY HUSBAND AND I SEEN ALL 4 SHOWINGS.AND ENJOYED EVERYONE OF THEM.THE TRILLICIOUS DANCERS TOPPED OFF ALL THE PERFORMERS. THE DANCERS WERE STUNNING AND EXCUTED THEIR ROUTES PERFECTLY. I RECOMEND THRILLUSIONS FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. GREAT ENTERTAINMENT. CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO RETURN BACK TO NEW ORLEANS.
