Australia’s Thunder From Down Under
The Aussies take over the top spot on our rankings as the most requested male revue in Las Vegas from the newly re-vamped theatre in the Excalibur, and there's little doubt why: they have a sizzling show that leaves its audiences looking up tickets for the next flight to the Outback.
Thunder From Down Under features some of the best male entertainers in the business and it has been a staple for many Vegas visitors for several years. The only complaint you'll have about this show is that it wasn't any longer. Saddle up for Australia’s Thunder Down Under.

Thunder Vegas Show Length and Awards
Unlike male strip clubs – where dancers cycle in and out on stage while coursing through the crowd at intervals for private dances – male revues are a production: there is a run time of about 90 minutes per show, which allows you to plan your night a little more than you might when visiting a strip club.
The lads from the Thunder From Down Under show have received many accolades over the years – "Best Male Strip Show in 2011" ( Las Vegas Review-Journal ), being featured on national shows like The View, The Tyra Banks Show, and many more! In the midst of a 15-YEAR Vegas residency, it's safe to say that these blokes are here to stay.
Thunder From Down Under Tickets
We set up our customers the best available seats, and of you have the budget we can get you right up in the “Thunder Zone.”
There are several pricing tiers available for those looking to attend the show:
Thunder Zone – located directly in front of the catwalk and the stage. The best seats in the house, you will be located right in the thick of the action. The guys come in close proximity to this area, allowing guests to reach out for some…interaction.
VIP – the next tier up, these seats complete the rest of the main floor's theater, both on the sides and at the back of the theater.
Preferred – slightly out of the action, these seats are up the stairs around the theater and provide a good overhead view of the show, though you won't really be downstairs where the show is taking place.
Rear – you get what you pay for with these budget seats. The view is a little obstructed from the back of the theater, and you're far away from the action. Highly recommend purchasing Preferred tickets or better for an optimal viewing experience. These seats cost
Our pricing is all-inclusive; taxes and service fees are included.
IMPORTANT: Like all shows that run on a schedule, the Thunder form down under events will start right on time, so it is a good idea to get your group there a little early to pick up your tickets and get to your pre-selected seats without rushing. This gives you a little time to order drinks to enjoy the show with, as well! (Must be 21+ with identification to order alcoholic beverages.).
The guys put on one of the best live shows in Vegas – with each electrifying number filled with acrobatic feats, hip hop, and contemporary dance moves, they will have you out of your seat in excitement. Enjoy the show as they entice and tantalize the audience and do everything in their power to drive you absolutely wild. While there is a certain amount of audience participation, this show takes place on stage and is a viewing experience – there are no private dances available, sorry ladies!
The guys do stage performances and venture out into the audience and tables out on the main floor – so there is a certain amount of close proximity to the performers! We do offer a round of 10 Jell-O shots and a shout out for the bride-to-be as an upgrade option of $75 at check out. The guys dancing will be inviting to touch, but please take care not to grab anywhere the guys themselves won't direct you to touch! At the end of the day, they are stage performers and are respectful of their guests, so please do the same for them.

At the time of this writing, the Thunder From Down Under still gets rave reviews. The show is one of the oldest men's shows in Las Vegas – and arguably its most sought-after and appealing show. Not an easy feat with big production shows like Magic Mike Live and Chippendales holding down theatres of their own!
Looking for more of an intimate experience with some male dancers? Check out our available male strip clubs, such as the Kings of Hustler. I hear management may bring back the Men of Sapphire, but nothing is set yet. I doubt the Men of Vegas at Spearmint Rhino will ever come back, but who knows. 🤷♂️ I did catch wind that the old Olympic Gardens is coming back, but not as the male and female strip club they were before. So, to sum it up, this men's show is great if you want some sexy Aussie hunks in a well-done production.
