Copying over info/links from the original Cirque du Soleil - on Ice thread ("Crystal" show):

AXEL website: https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/axel

First dates I see listed are October 4-5, 2019 at the Ed Lumley Arena in Cornwall, Ontario (a third show was added after the first 2 shows sold out quickly: https://www.cornwallseawaynews.com/2019/07/12/cirque-du-soleil-adds-third-show-in-cornwall/ ), followed by Oct. 11-13 in Syracuse, NY.

Soyoun Park shared this on ice group photo with her fellow AXEL castmates at the start of rehearsals in Montreal in June: https://www.instagram.com/p/By-vYVOnucB/

Just got tickets for the show ... not til June! Happy to see Jeremy Ten is part of the cast. I always liked his skating.

You can see more than one show while you are there. Their website says they have eight Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas! We only get one at a time where I live and so far no Axel.

Jeremy Ten explained last week why he couldn't perform his "main track as the villainous 'Vi'" in AXEL's World Premiere in Montreal last month ("...I developed a minor but debilitating labral tear in my right hip..."):

I took my 12 year old nephew today and we had a great time. Karina and Joe did a great job, I won’t spoil anything but in one portion she worked her costume perfectly.

Unfortunately the crowd was small and they have a performance tomorrow when the whole area will be shut down for a KC Super Bowl party. It will be chaos down there, glad I had tickets for today.
