Move Over Siegfried and Roy, Here Come the Beatles

It was only a matter of time: According to, the surviving Beatles are teaming up with Cirque de Soleil for a show that will replace Siegfried and Roy's show at the Las Vegas Mirage. Some details:

"The surviving members of the group, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will help shape the production but will not appear in it. Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, respective widows of late members John Lennon and George Harrison, also will collaborate. The deal for the joint venture was reached this week between Cirque du Soleil, Apple and the Mirage, said Bill McBeath, the hotel-casino's president and chief operating officer. The as-yet-untitled show is expected to cost more than $100 million and should be ready in about 20 months, he said."
