I never had the chance to see Lance Burton's most recent/last shows in Las Vegas before he retired several years ago. Does anyone remember the set list/show order of the last couple of years of shows that he did?

I saw his show a few months before his retirement at the Monte Carlo, but I don't remember the complete line-up. He opened his show with an illusion where he appears on top of a platform were a vertical door panel is rotating and the image of him is printed on the front. As soon as the panel stops moving, it gradually goes up to reveal Lance. He steps down from the platform and starts his dove and card manipulation act. His erotic levitation was still in the show. I saw his assistant vanish from inside a phone booth where she does a sultry strip tease. He had a straight jacket escape. Let me see .. oh yes his assistant vanishes from a cape at the front of the stage. He also performed an unusual brinks security type truck appearance with gold materializing inside a previously empty vault. His disembodied illusion was somewhere in there.. I had a lot of fun that night and the audience gave him standing ovation. Sure wish I could recall some other stuff.

Thanks for sharing your memories, they are great to hear. I'd love to hear from others also, I know that illusions were rotated into and out of the show at times.

He also did the Corvette vanish (drove it into a big box), the Floating Ball, and "A night at the Ball" with the sword dual.

I caught his show before it finished and the only noticeable change was that he cut his "Magic Zone" telephone box portion of the show. Wish I could have seen it or lance could post a video of it. He put a lot of B roll of his show at the end of Billy Topit.

What was the "Magic Zone" routine? That's a piece that I never had the chance to see.

Saw Lance's show just before it closed.

There was Osmosis, the gramophone, the chandelier re-appearance (can't remember how he vanished, but it may have been connected to Osmosis), the opening sequence as mentioned above (picture in a frame and appearance followed by classic FISM dove/manipulation act).

It's been some time, so that's all that stuck in mind - sorry!

If a DVD of that show, in it's entirety, wasn't made that's really a *** shame. I know it's not what your looking for but the original routine that made him famous is on You Tube. I saw it at a Tannen's Jubilee as a kid when Lance was still an "up and comer".
