After first being spotted at the Hard Rock Hotel, Brad Pitt was seen at the MGM Grand on Wednesday as he continued what appeared to be a boys' night out.
Instead of gazing at the girls at Crazy Horse Paris or taking shots of Patron at Studio 54, however, the 45-year-old star was spotted with adopted sons Maddox, 7, and Pax, 5, in the front row of Cirque du Soleil’s Asian-inspired showcase, KÀ.
The actor’s partner, Angelina Jolie, did not attend the performance. She and daughters, Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 2, were reportedly to be in New York while Pitt and the boys were having their PG-rated fun Sin City.
The couple’s seven-month old twins, Knox and Vivienne, were not seen out in public on either the East or West coast on Wednesday.
Pitt and Jolie are expected to reunite no later than this weekend, as both halves of the Hollywood hot couple are nominated for Academy Awards. The annual celebration of cinematic greatness will take place in L.A. on Sunday.
In addition to the famous faces in the audience Wednesday, more than 3 million people have seen the Cirque spectacle since it opened in 2005.
After Pitt and his sons took in the 7 p.m. show, the cast gave its 2,000th public performance at 9:30 p.m. The flexible, muscular and multi-national cast mixed and mingled with ticketholders in the theater lobby after concluding the monumental performance.
By the time the second performance was complete, however, it was long past Maddox and Pax’s bedtimes and the Pitt/Jolie-Pitt trio were nowhere to be found.
