What do you call a show that combines grand illusions, awe-inspiring stunts and dazzling pyrotechnics? You call it something different, something the Las Vegas Strip hasn’t seen before.

Inferno arrives at Paris Las Vegas this week, a special effects experience created by a team of pyro specialists who have worked on events including the Super Bowl and the Coachella music festival. European illusionist Joe Labero and his fiery aerial group the Fuel Girls—who just finished touring in Europe with rockers Fall Out Boy—are at the center of the action, now playing Wednesdays through Sundays at the Paris Theater.

“Fire brings out something primal in everyone,” co-producer Kris Russell said in a show announcement. “It’s one element that’s never quite been tamed, and this show will push the most talented fire artists in the world to their absolute limits, letting audiences live out their pyromaniac dreams.”

When was the last time you saw something truly death-defying on a Vegas stage?

  • Adam Sandler returns to the Chelsea and DJ Snake takes over at XS Saturday night.

  • “It’s always been a dream to reach this level.”

  • The mantra is “handmade with love, from scratch, daily,” and you can taste it in every bite.
