Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see The Australian Bee Gees in the Thunder from Down Under Showroom at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. For $35, you get one ticket for VIP seating (up to a $73.95 value, including all fees). Shows take place every evening at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The Australian Bee Gees pull off a feat of musical mimicry with their uncannily similar sound and comparable appearance to the celebrated musical group. The 75-minute concert offers favorite classic tunes augmented by contemporary multimedia, rather than disco balls and a poster of Richard Nixon in Saturday Night Fever. Hailed by the Las Vegas Review-Journal as “a tasteful tribute that encourages fans to dance” and disarms even the disco-averse, each set covers the full career trajectory of the brothers Gibb. In addition to essential hits such as “Stayin’ Alive” and “How Deep Is Your Love,” the Aussies drape their harmonic tapestry around soulful early classics such as “To Love Somebody” and “Holiday.” With seats closer to the stage, VIP ticket holders are treated to premium views of the performance and the gargantuan screens, which light up with video clips, live performance footage, and spectacular graphics to dazzle Bee Gees fans and lighting aficionados alike.
