Rated 2 out of 5 by TysonWasGreat Tyson was Great! MGM staff were horrible
The hotel/casino/floor/player's club/coctail /ticketing staff were rude and gave the WORST customer service! Tyson was amazing! It's unfortunate that he is performing at such an unsatisfactory establishment. I'd definitely NOT visit the MGM again, and tell others(friends, family and coworkers) about my unfortunate experience so that there might be changes. I did speak to 3 members of MGM management about my experiences as they occured, btw.

good to see another side of the champ, a soft cuddly bear, and not like the media monster of his fighting days!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ScarletFever Cool to see Tyson, but a letdown
I will say this, I don't totally regret going to this show. I got to see Tyson, he was entertaining and I learned a few wild facts from his life I didn't know before.
Now, when we got to the club we were welcomed, had our photo taken (of course that they wanted to sell after the show), and sat down to somewhat slow service. Our seat was a cramped booth (be careful if you order tickets for a group of 4) that unfortunately had a blocked view of at least 30% of the right side of the stage due to a large pillar in the middle of the room. We mentioned this to a manager, he assured us we'd be able to see the show (we saw 70% of the show). We also noticed an empty booth next to us that we could have moved to, but we weren't allowed and then we saw later an employee sat there! to watch the show.
Did I mention we paid for the 'better view' seats? It wasn't even the lowest category. The only one above this grade were the $250/ea VIP tickets.
Mike's not the easiest to understand and being on the back wall behind a pillar wasn't the greatest. The 3 folks I talked into seeing this with me gave me grief all night.
So, there you have it. I've seen several Vegas shows, this is the only lemon of the bunch. I had higher expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul55 Great show, great story well told
Mike Tyson was, as any fighter is brave to get in the ring and make a career out of boxing. In this new career he tells an honest, self deprecating tale of rags to riches to rags again.. A fascinating insight into a troubled guy who like us all has many weaknesses but he isn't afraid to admit his faults. He comes across as humble and really trying to make a new start for himself and his family. Sometimes funny, and equally sad in parts, he bares his soul for all to see in a one man show which pulls no punches! I did the meet and greet, which was brief but great to meet him and he was friendly. Highly recommended, especially for boxing fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottishJamie What a guy, what a life!
A must for any Mike Tyson fan, had us laughing out loud from the start with his stories & antics, was a great way of starting off our night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sabien20 Tyson is a performer. Enjoyed very much
Tyson is very open and honest. Wish the show was longer. I was expecting it to be more formal because most the reviews I read spoke of his 6 piece orchestra, and him in a suit bUT for us he was fresh off an airplane so in that regard I'm happy he even did the show. His story is amazing, big fan, wish I got to meet him my fiance would have loved that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheJamesCottonwood Mike is the bomb, smuggle drinks in.
I was delightfully surprised that this show wasn't happening in a large auditorium. It is a very small, intimate club where the legend, Mike Tyson chose to perform. Although his performance was amazing, the staff was not prepared for drink service. Here I was admiring my childhood idol with a dry throat. Totally wished I could have had a cold beverage to enjoy his magnificent tales. They need to step their game up if the want to support the baddest man on the planet. I had to wait for my check after the show which was annoying. However, employees of the club kept me entertained by telling me about the legends who have graced the place. If I go back, I will prepare for this cluster and will surely be prepared.
