“The New Illusions” starring Jan Rouven will give audiences a front-row seat into the imagination of a master illusionist. This must-see show, which received the Review-Journal’s award for Best Magic Show, will be a newly produced extravaganza featuring some of the largest, never-before-seen illusions.

Sharing the stage with “The New Illusions” is the ultimate classic rock concert experience, “Raiding the Rock Vault,” which was named Readers’ Choice Best of Las Vegas 2014 by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and has consistently been ranked the No. 1 show in Las Vegas on TripAdvisor.

Bringing the history of rock ‘n’ roll to life, “Raiding the Rock Vault” is the best of classic rock performed nightly by members of some of the greatest rock bands from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, and includes classic anthems from The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Free, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Boston, Kansas, U2, Aerosmith, Van Halen, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Heart, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Supertramp and many more.

“The response to ‘Raiding the Rock Vault’ in Las Vegas by visitors and locals has been a dream come true,” said producer Sir Harry Cowell. “This is an exciting move and we look forward to rocking the stage at the Tropicana Theater.”

“When looking for a headline show in Las Vegas, of course you want the best. So we went out and found two,” said Fred Harmon, chief marketing officer for The New Tropicana Las Vegas. “Jan Rouven has continually amazed sold-out crowds in a smaller theater and I am excited to see what he will be able to do on one of the largest stages in Las Vegas.

“‘Raiding the Rock Vault’ is literally the best concert I have ever been to,” continued Harmon. ”Where else can you see former members of Heart, Whitesnake and even Bon Jovi performing the greatest classic rocks songs?”
