LAS VEGAS (AP) — An open-air Las Vegas Strip pirate show that featured sirens in skimpy costumes dancing with shirtless sailors has been cancelled, with casino officials saying Monday they plan to build shops on the site.

"Sirens of TI" had been on a hiatus, but officials at the Treasure Island casino confirmed that the 10-year run of the seductive spectacle was over for good.

The free 10-minute show had played four times nightly and featured elaborate pyrotechnics and dancers using the rigging of a giant ship as stripper poles.

The show entered what was supposed to be a two-month closure on Oct. 20. The opening of the shops is planned for the fall of 2014.
