Brisbane loved EMPIRE when it rocked King George Square! Now the creators are back with a show that takes things to a whole new level – the city is about to be shocked, probably outraged, definitely wowed and absolutely entertained when the politically incorrect yet athletically gifted and talented cast from ABSINTHE Tour Le Monde, presented by Stan, arrives for a strictly limited season from June 2 under the spiegeltent at King George Square.
ABSINTHE is an adult-themed cocktail of circus, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. The show is hosted by the filthy rich and just plain filthy Gazillionaire and his whacky assistant Abby Bobbins who have become two of the most acclaimed and subversive comedy forces in Las Vegas in recent years by parodying political correctness with their dark wit.

UNDER THE SPIEGELTENT!
Launched by Australians in Manhattan’s gritty South Street Seaport, it became New York’s must-see event before moving to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas where it has been smashing box office records and continues selling out after four amazing years. These exceptionally talented and sexy performers from across the globe have been described by notorious Las Vegas reporter Robin Leach as “naughty and nice, exotic and erotic, wild and wacky.”
It’s not only the artists who create the magic of ABSINTHE.
The show will be presented in Brisbane in a 700-seat antique spiegeltent, furnished with beveled mirrors, plush velvet seating booths and a well-stocked bar in King George Square. It’s the most intimate stage in town, with the artists dedicated to performing their jaw-dropping, breath-taking acts up close and very personal!
Brisbane audiences at ABSINTHE will be treated to new international acts, especially hand-picked for the Australian tour, joining the line-up of jaw-dropping performances which have been wowing Las Vegas for four sold-out years. Celebrity audience members have included Elijah Wood, Channing Tatum, James Franco, Olivia Newton-John, Neil Patrick Harris, Brad Garrett and Pamela Anderson.
Laura von Bongard and Luka Clayburn from Germany, have created a breathtakingly sexy aerial hoop duet which is being premiered on this Australian tour. Los Dos Tacos (Andrei Sizonenka and Aliaksandr Yurkavets from Belarus) astound with their heart-stopping human foosball routine on the high bar- believed to be the first time a double Horizontal Bar act has been performed on the intimate spiegeltent stage where the audience are just inches away from the action. Other acts include Oleksandr Volohdin (Ukraine) building an impossibly high chair mountain; The Lost Souls (Ukraine) with their stunning acrobatic Banquine Act; the sensuous Jacob Oberman and Maika Isogawa (USA) on the Duo Straps; Michal Nowosadko and Zbigniew Sobierakski (Poland) displaying extraordinary grace and strength with their Hand Balance; and The Frat Pack (USA) on the daring High Wire.
Spiegelworld’s Impresario, Australian Ross Mollison, said of the impending Brisbane season, “ABSINTHE is now considered a must see for visitors to Las Vegas. I am thrilled to be bringing our biggest ever hit production to Brisbane – a city which we know embraces the best and most exciting stage performances – before we head off to tour the rest of the world.”
ABSINTHE is a bona-fide international phenomenon.
