The Sirens of TI was a free nightly show provided by the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The show entailed a group of sensual and tempting sirens engaging with a band of renegade pirates.

Story[edit]

After capturing an overboard pirate, Eros, and luring his captain and crew into Sirens' Cove, the Sirens quickly find themselves in a battle with the pirates they intended to toy around with. Cannons are soon firing from the pirate's ship, The Bull, while the Sirens use their power over the ocean from their ship, The Song, to engulf The Bull and sink it to the bottom of the sea.

The show's not over yet though, as the pirates climb aboard The Song and a second battle ensues. As the pirates finally realize they're no match for the Sirens, they decide to surrender and The Song turns into a 21st-century party.

History[edit]

In October 2003, the Sirens of TI show replaced the "Battle of Buccaneer Bay" show, which was geared towards a younger audience.[1] Director and choreographer Kenny Ortega created the "Sirens of TI" show.

On October 20, 2013, the show was halted for what was intended to be a temporary closure until December 26, for the construction of retail space nearby. But in late November 2013, Treasure Island announced that the closure was permanent.[2]
