An injury to a Cirque du Soleil performer temporarily paused a weekend show at the Mirage in Las Vegas. During “The Beatles LOVE” performance, a trampoline artist hurt his left leg and is currently recovering. The incident occurred during the song “Revolution,” and the show was halted for half an hour. The performer was removed from the stage and attended to by the production crew.
Cirque du Soleil confirmed the incident and stated that the injured artist will be monitored by coaches and physicians, with the timeframe for his return to the stage being determined by his healing progress. The show, which features four trampolines and a replica Volkswagen bus, was able to continue while the injured performer received medical attention.
In a separate incident during the same performance, an audience member reportedly experienced a potential seizure in the theater’s upper level. This came after another Cirque du Soleil performer, Kyle Mitrione, suffered serious injuries during a performance of “O” at the Bellagio in June. Mitrione underwent spinal surgery and subsequent physical therapy.
Since its debut in 2006, “The Beatles LOVE” has become a beloved and successful production on the Las Vegas Strip. The show is expected to continue until at least March 20, 2024. Additionally, the Mirage will not be rebranded as the Hard Rock Las Vegas until at least 2027, with the acquisition of the hotel being approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission in December.
Furthermore, last month, former Beatle Paul McCartney visited the cast of “The Beatles LOVE” at the Mirage before a show. This visit is just one example of the show’s enduring popularity and the continued success of Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.
