Cirque du Soliel's "Love" Opens in Las Vegas
01 July 2006
Cirque du Soleil brought the Beatles to Vegas Friday with the grand opening performance of the international theatre troupe's latest show, "Love." A surrealistic portrayal of the Fab Four's career, "Love" features parts, outtakes, and even characters from Beatles songs.
The opening at the Mirage Hotel drew red carpet arrivals by Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison.
"It was emotional because two of us aren't there," Starr said after the show. "So it really comes home when you're watching this."
