Filming to Begin Monday, November 6, 2006

Luxor Resort & Casino will be the home for the third season of A&E Network's "Criss Angel MINDFREAK." The critically acclaimed show, featuring 28 episodes, will begin filming Monday, November 6, 2006 and will air on A&E Network beginning in the Spring of 2007.

In its first two seasons, "Criss Angel MINDFREAK" garnered critical acclaim, delivering the biggest ratings numbers in A&E Network's history. In each episode Criss Angel demonstrates his visionary approach to the art of magic that escapes the confines of tradition and gives birth to a new breed of modern mysticism. Dubbed "the new Houdini," Criss Angel captivates audiences with mind-boggling demonstrations of his skills including mentalism, hypnosis, illusion and escape which blur the lines between reality and illusion. The third season of the show will feature Criss performing demonstrations and illusions in and around the numerous attractions and features of the Luxor Resort & Casino as well as various locations at other MGM MIRAGE properties.

"I am so happy to call Luxor Resort & Casino home for my third season," said Criss Angel. "This is an amazing place with infinite possibilities. Everyone here has been so approachable and already made us feel right at home. I can't wait to get started."

The "Criss Angel MINDFREAK" Production Offices and Merchandise Store will be located in the Luxor Galleria.

Felix Rappaport, President and Chief Operating Officer of Luxor Resort & Casino said, "We are thrilled to be the home for the third season of MINDFREAK. Criss Angel is one of the most intriguing personalities in the entertainment world today. Having him here is the first significant step in the total transformation of Luxor into one of the most exciting and fun venues in Las Vegas. Criss' worldwide following and the amazing popularity of his show are a perfect fit for us here at Luxor."
