Shows are returning to three MGM Resorts Las Vegas casinos beginning Nov. 6. This isn’t exactly surprising as Caesars is already reopening shows. Multiple other Las Vegas casinos from Downtown Grand to The Strat have reopened or are in the process of reopening some of their small shows as well.
The slow road back for Las Vegas continues as more casinos continue to open more amenities. It will still take some time before Las Vegas returns to “normal” but these small steps show progress forward. MGM Resorts recognizes that this is just the beginning.
“After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World,” said George Kliavkoff, MGM Resorts’ President of Entertainment and Sports. “While there is still a long road in our city’s recovery, the reintroduction of these shows is an important first step. November 6 is going to feel very special as we welcome back team members and guests and bring the curtains up for that first time.”
Like other shows reopening, this initial phase of entertainment for MGM Resorts will allow for a maximum audience of 250 guests. There will be at least 6 feet of physical distance between parties. Additionally, seats will be a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers.
The new distancing measures may create a different experience from previous performances of the shows. This is for everyone’s safety. It could also create a new and unique entertainment option that hasn’t been seen before and may not be seen in the future.
Let the show begin! Entertainment is returning to several of our Las Vegas destinations. New live entertainment health protocols will be implemented so you can Convene with Confidence.
