Many of the best attractions in Las Vegas are free! The Mirage is setting a new standard for Strip-front attractions with the premiere of its redesigned signature Volcano this week.

The new Volcano features never-before-seen fire effects and an all-new soundtrack created by Grammy award-winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mickey Hart and Indian tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain. The Volcano once again lights up the Las Vegas Strip.

This Tuesday, for one night only under the "big top" in the Las Vegas Hilton showroom, the Monster Circus rolls into town. The Circus features a troupe of some of rock music’s greatest players for a one-of-a-kind rock show. The Monster Circus combines solid musicianship with fire-eaters, sexy dancers and other surprises all to benefit Toys for Tots.
The all-star line-up, performing powerhouse rock anthems of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s features: Bruce Kulick (KISS), John Corabi (Motley Crüe, Ratt), Rudy Sazro (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Dio) and Tony Montana (Great White), Bobby Rock (Slaughter, Vinnie Vincent Invasion). Special guests include Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver). Showtime is 6:30 p.m. Admission is free (21 and over).
