Illuzion offers sneak peek in Phuket tonight

PHUKET: Illuzion, an interactive show and discotheque, will offer a sneak preview tonight of the dazzling grand-opening show on Soi Bangla tomorrow.

In the center of Jungceylon, near the water fountain, a Rihanna tribute band will kick off the pre-opening show at 6pm. Following Rihanna on stage will be a Lady Gaga tribute, with what organizers are calling a “Paparazzi show”.

“The Paparazzi-action show will be between Bangla Road and Jungceylon and will be very interactive with the public. It will be hard to know what is real and what is Illuzion,” said Patrick Catellani, CFO of Patong Dine & Show and Co-Founder of Hollywood World Entertainments.

Then, from 8:30 to 9pm, there will be a “Welcome to Illuzion” show.

With a 4-million-baht sound system, a 70sqm LED screen and millions of more baht spent on lights and special effects, the about 244mn-baht complex will be celebrating its grand opening tomorrow and is expected to bring an entirely new experience to Phuket.

“This is probably the best setting you can find in Thailand, not only Phuket, because of the special effects, the sound system and the DJs,” explained Mr Catellani.

Similar to the Coco Bongo Show and Disco in Mexico’s prime party town of Cancun, Illuzion weaves a series of international-quality stage performances, aerial shows and acrobatics into a single interactive experience for guests.

“The name Illuzion comes from the concept that we deliver to the customer: when they come here, they have to feel like they are in a dream. That’s why we call it an interactive show, it’s not just a sit-and-watch-and-drink experience, you can walk around and take part in the dream – you are part of it,” Mr Catellani explained.
