Illusionist Criss Angel, the first headliner to team up with Cirque du Soleil, has signed a 10-year contract at the Luxor, with a 5-year option that could extend it to 15, it was announced late Tuesday.
Angel's 4,600-show run with Cirque begins in the summer of 2008.
The announcement by Luxor president Felix Rappaport came during a party celebrating the opening of Angel's third season of "Mindfreak," the hit series on A & E.
Earlier in the day, Angel appeared to escape from a cement box suspended 40 feet above Times Square in New York after it crashed to the ground.
The big mystery was how he got out of the box without being seen during his 24-hour stay.
