Viva Las Vegas

By: Glenn Goodhall on 29th Nov 2013

I booked up to stay at the Excalibur hotel which is the one that looks like a big giant castle. Simon's girlfriend Jemima joined us for the week which was cool and made a change from staring at Simon all day lol.

On the Sunday the whole strip shut down for the Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll marathon, which was pretty cool there were no cars on the strip at all. Watching the runners go past I wanted to join in but apparently no late participants were allowed.

I wanted to do a few different things this time in Vegas, this time I wanted to see a few more shows. One show we went to see was a comedy show , I enjoyed the comedy show apart from a few jokes where they were clearly aimed at the American audience. An English guy did heckle one of the comedians and shouted out "Your not funny mate". It was slightly awkward as there were only about thirty of us in the room but the comedian took it on the chin.

Our next show was MJ live, I thought this show was brilliant I've never seen Michael Jackson live but I can't imagine this guy was too far off. If you YouTube search "Justin Dean Michael Jackson" you can see for yourselves.

David Copperfield was next and I was lucky enough to sit right at the front literally my foot was touching the stage. The show was amazing he made things disappear right in front of me. One of his tricks was to apparently go to the future, first he put a poster on stage facing backwards so know one could see. He then picked some random people out of the audience asked them some random questions like where do you want to go on holiday? name a dead popstar? he then revealed the poster which had all of the correct answers which the random people had picked. He also sent us an Email of the image that he created.

I also wanted to do the Stratosphere rides as last time we never got round to doing them. I really enjoyed the rides they were a lot of fun, pretty high up though.

Big Elvis has to get a mention in here, Big Elvis performs most days at the Harrah's casino and is brilliant. He really sounds like Elvis and looks like him apart from his superior weight difference. He even gets up and dances like Elvis, well I say dances I mean shuffles.

Didn't think it rained much in Las Vegas I was wrong, we decided to do a bit of shopping and walked it and we got absolutely soaked.
