Cirque du Soleil cast dances on baggage carousel at Vegas airport to mark Beatles anniversary

  • Print

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Visitors flying into Las Vegas got more than just their luggage when they stopped by baggage claim.

Cast members from Cirque du Soleil danced on the carousels, did handstands on the moving sidewalks and rode a vintage Volkswagen Beetle into the terminal Thursday afternoon at McCarran International Airport.

The unannounced, three-song shows marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas. The band's two-show gig in 1964 was the only time the Fab Four performed in Sin City.

Cirque du Soleil has a Beatles-themed resident show at The Mirage casino called "LOVE."

The cast's re-creation of the Beatles' journey included a pre-flight performance at San Francisco International Airport, and cast members gave prizes to Southwest Airlines passengers who flew with them to Las Vegas.
