Cirque Performer Injured In Beatles “Love” Show

Cirque du Soleil officials say a performer was injured during the finale of the company’s Las Vegas-based Beatles “Love” show.

Cirque spokeswoman Kala Peterson confirmed the injury Tuesday.

Peterson says the performer was injured during Monday’s show and transported to a local hospital where the artist was later released in good condition.

Peterson offered no other information about what happened or when the performer was released from the hospital.

She says the performer was taken to the hospital as part of the entertainment company’s protocol for handling injuries.

In the year and a half since a performer died in a fall during Cirque’s “Ka” production in Las Vegas, a performer was injured falling during a stunt in the company’s “Zarkana” show and another was injured in a production of “O’’.
