The reopening of Las Vegas continues with sports, concerts, residencies, and stage shows that Sin City is famous for getting ready for the summer. Shows in Las Vegas are being announced almost every day and people are ready to have some fun. Tickets for UFC 264 at T-Mobile Arena in July sold out in minutes. Garth Brooks‘ sold-out show at Allegiant Stadium will finally take place in July as well. Usher is even adding six more dates to his Caesars Palace residency. Unlike most extensions, these shows will happen sooner than later with six performances this summer.
National tours and sports travel across the country. While residencies have always been popular, the stage shows are still a trademark of Las Vegas. Cirque Du Soliel is the preeminent stage show producer in Las Vegas. After being closed for more than a year, some Cirque shows are returning to Las Vegas stages.
“O” at Bellagio and Mystère at Treasure Island will reopen this summer in Las Vegas. Mystère will return to its stage at Treasure Island on June 28, 2021. “O” will mark its first performance of the year at Bellagio on July 1, 2021. Tickets are now available for both shows.
While it’s only an affiliate of Cirque Du Soliel, Blue Man Group will return to Luxor with performances starting June 24, 2021. Some touring Cirque Du Soliel shows will hit stages around the world. The return of more Cirque Du Soliel shows in Las Vegas could be announced soon.
“This is the moment we have all been waiting for,” said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “Almost 400 days have passed since we had to take a temporary hiatus, and we have been anxiously awaiting our return to the stage. I am so proud of the resilience of our artists and employees who persevered during the most challenging times with stages dark around the world for so long. I just can’t wait to see the lights go back on.”
