After spreading his unique brand of magical entertainment around the world with hit TV show Mindfreak and storming the Las Vegas Strip with a record-breaking 10-year run at Luxor, it would seem as though there’s no mountain left to conquer for Criss Angel. But the illusionist extraordinaire is just getting started, opening his brand-new show at the Planet Hollywood resort this week on Dec. 19, with a grand gala opening set for January.

“It’s amazing to be back home at Planet Hollywood, where I began Mindfreak in 2005,” Angel said. “As that series changed the trajectory of magic on television, I believe my new show will do the same for live performance, creating a brand-new immersive experience the world of entertainment has never had.”

Planet Hollywood Resort, 7 p.m. Wed.-Sun. (opens Dec. 26), starting at $69 plus tax and fee. 702.777.2782
