As every magician knows, there is more magic in Las Vegas, Nevada than in any other location in the world. Oh yes, there are multiple magic shows in other places -- like Branson, Missouri and the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee areas. But nowhere else are there as many magicians, magic shows, and shows with magic, than in Las Vegas. So it should be of widespread interest to magicians around the world, to read this monthly list compiled by David Neubauer. Thank you, David, for providing this important service.
