Jerry Springer was a guest at the 7pm performance of Viva ELVIS by Cirque du Soleil at ARIA Resort & Casino on May 24. The controversial talk show host is in town to lead the Las Vegas stage version of the game show “The Price is Right” at Bally’s (Photo credit: Meskerem Mitiku-Cotton; courtesy of Cashman Photo).
After the show, he came back to say hi to the cast. “The show was amazing! Absolutely amazing. I was curious how you (Cirque du Soleil) would find a balance between the person, the music, and the performance level but you’ve definitely found that balance. It was just great.”

Much to the chagrin of the cast, dripping in sweat after their 90 minute high energy performance, he said, “ I wish the show were 30 minutes longer! I wasn’t tired at all!”
While he grew up with Elvis, our cast and crew grew up with Jerry Springer! He graciously took the time to take pictures with many of the cast members individually and let them know how impressed he was with each of their acts.
