Review from Cheryl

Enjoyed the magic--not so much the rock.

Review from LizAnne Keigley

Great energy, lots of fun. Not as much magic as I would have liked but the magic he did was fun. Lots of dancing which was nice but there was more dancing than magic. Very moving ending, received standing "O". Excellent seating at the venue.

Review from Sandra Price

A combination of dancing, illusion and some great slight of hand original tricks. A most enjoyable 2 hours. Just wish I could have brought my 12year old grandson. He would have loved it too.

Quotes & Highlights

“Adams rocks! … This is as much a party as a production!” —Las Vegas Sun
“a spectacular show that rocks with high energy appeal to all ages, featuring laughs, dance and state-of-the-art visual effects.” —_Showbiz Weekly _


Curtis Adams is truly a new breed of entertainer with a spectacular new show that features nonstop laughs, cutting-edge dance and state-of-the-art visual effects. His newest creation, Magic That Rocks, is the rock concert of magic shows — the definition of modern magic for a new generation. In fact, the show is so different that to call it simply “a magic show” would be an understatement.

Adams appeals to the young and the young at heart. With the energy of a concert-like atmosphere plus Adams’ innovative take on magic, this show sets the benchmark high for magic shows around the world. With a young, fresh outlook, Adams has put a new twist on something stereotyped as “old hat.”

Adams is a lifelong entertainer who began performing professionally at 10 years old. By the time he was a teenager he had created his first production company and was performing in casinos throughout northern Nevada. At 17, Adams was selected by master magician Lance Burton for Fox Television’s “Young Magicians Showcase.”  During that event, he caught the eye of a very prestigious name in magic, creative director Don Wayne, whom Adams collaborated and trained under. Wayne is best known for creating and producing material for David Copperfield’s TV specials as well as his live tours, including such tricks as Copperfield’s disappearance of the Statue of Liberty, walking through the Great Wall of China, as well as flying and vanishing the Orient Express.

Adams sent a ripple of excitement up the West Coast while performing at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino, continuing to his critically acclaimed performance at the Plaza Hotel and Casino, where he became Las Vegas’s youngest headliner. Currently, due to the success of his first tour and ever-growing popularity, Adams is continuing his tour throughout the United States and internationally.
