On Friday, May 24, Criss Angel MINDFREAK was officially named “The #1 Show in Las Vegas,” by Celebrity Radio, the number one entertainment review site in the UK and Las Vegas. Presenting the accolade in front of a sold-out house, Alex Belfield of Celebrity Radio met the world-renowned illusionist on stage following his completely immersive magic concert at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
After reviewing numerous shows (including every magic and non-magic show on The Strip), and with more than 53 million viewed minutes on YouTube, the expert review site unanimously voted MINDFREAK as “the best of the best” in Las Vegas for its spectacular innovation, audience immersion and Criss’ unparalleled performance of the most revolutionary illusions. “After seeing every show possible in Las Vegas, Criss Angel MINDFREAK is by far the number #1 show in Las Vegas,” said Belfield. Belfield has spent 15 years reviewing shows in Vegas and recorded more than 60 reviews and interviews this month alone. “Seriously, not since “O” have I seen anything this epic, spectacular, exciting, relevant and inspiring in 20 years of reviewing theatre around the world,” he adds.
This award adds to Angel’s many coveted honors including “Magician of the Year,” “Magician of the Decade,” and “Magician of the Century.” Angel is also the youngest and only active performer to receive the most prestigious honor in the magical arts – the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, in addition to being named “The Greatest of All Time” by VANISH Magazine (the world’s largest magic publication).
