Journey is returning to a new Las Vegas residency in a new location. When Journey returns to Las Vegas it will be for a brief residency at The Theater inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Coincidentally, KISS performed its last Las Vegas residency inside the Hard Rock which is now known as Virgin. The next KISS Las Vegas residency will take place at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood.
Many of the most amazing Las Vegas experiences come from improving concepts developed elsewhere. A case in point is the Supper Club. This isn’t a new idea. This dinner and a show experience go back to the Roarin’ 20s. However, Bellagio and Wynn have updated the concept for today. The experience at both Supper Clubs isn’t something you’ll find just anywhere in Las Vegas.
Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas recently opened a concept that leans into a 1950s motif. The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio is located right on the lake that looks out to the Vegas Strip. Both experiences offer upscale dining with a show. Supper won’t be cheap but each location could provide one of those “Only in Vegas” memories.
Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas
Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas is located near the Tower Suites portion of the casino. This is important as you won’t find the Super Club just wandering the casino floor. The venue is inspired by the earliest showrooms and supper clubs of Las Vegas in the 1950s. Delilah takes some inspiration from Parisian salon interiors and the set design from Hollywood’s “golden age”.
Delilah features multiple environments for guests to dine and enjoy the show. The venue offers live music and special performances, DJs, and Sunday night jazz. Dining seamlessly turns to dancing and lounge-style bottle service as the night progresses.
Delilah features two separate bars – the intimate 34-seat Little Bubble Bar and a lower-level Anchor Bar on the main dining room floor. Outside features two courtyards, hung with over 80 candle-lit lanterns and surrounded by succulent-covered walls.
“Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas creates an alluring hot-spot that merges exquisite service and exceptional food in an immersive environment, ” says Delilah operators John Terzian and Brian Toll. “We feel like Delilah Las Vegas will create new iconic moments and an experience you will never forget!”
Don’t be surprised to see performers at other venues at the property popping into Delilah to entertain the crowd. Justin Beiber recently performed at the Encore Theater then made a special appearance at Delilah.
The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio
The Mayfair Supper Club draws inspiration from the glamour of old Vegas and Hollywood. While dinner and the show take place inside, there’s no denying The Mayfair’s beautiful waterfront location that’s perfect for an evening cocktail.
The design of The Mayfair brings the idea of water inside to the classic Supper Club. This decor draws inspiration from mythology and tales of Neptune. Various elements combine with textures and colors to create a perfect classic backdrop for an evening of dining and dancing.
“Supper clubs of the mid-1900s were the foundation for our country’s best artists and cuisine, which The Mayfair celebrates and modernizes for the 20s of today,” said MGM Resorts International Chief Hospitality Officer Ari Kastrati. “Combined with spectacular entertainment overlooking unrivaled views of the Bellagio Fountains, The Mayfair delivers an experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.”
The performance stage is located among the dinner tables. The Mayfair has nightly live performances. Later in the evening, the venue becomes more of a lounge during Mayfair After Dark. While the Supper Club is open nightly while After Dark starts at 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.
It’s time to start thinking about making holiday plans again. This season was a bit of a mess for many people last year. It appears as though we might have a slightly more normal holiday season this year. The venues inside Las Vegas casinos aren’t wasting any time getting ready.
After months of rumors, KISS has finally confirmed it will return to Las Vegas for a new residency. KISS’s next residency will begin at the Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood just before the year ends. KISS will kick off its 12 show residency on Dec. 29 and Dec. 31 this year. The first blast of shows will end on Saturday, Jan 1.
This isn’t another Vegas is back(!) blog post. Technically all entertainment news in Las Vegas can be considered “Vegas is back” but that’s another story. During the second quarter and into July just about every hotel increased room occupancy. Hotel rooms at the Vegas Strip casinos were more than 90% full from Friday through Sunday.
In May, Caesars closed or didn’t reopen many of its smaller shows in Las Vegas. Wayne Newton, Anthony Cools, and Chippendales are some of the more popular names that won’t be returning to Caesars’ properties. Some of the shows are already lining up new homes. For example, Mac King is relocating from Harrah’s to Excalibur. Magician Xavier Mortimer is moving to The Strat.
Wynn Las Vegas has a packed entertainment schedule this summer for fans of standup comedy. Some of the performers are new to the luxury casino resort while others are making return engagements. Beginning June, six different comedians will grace the stage at the Encore Theater. The summer comedy performances will kick off with one of the most popular comedians in the country returning to Wynn for shows in front of a packed audience once again.
There are signs every week that Las Vegas is returning to the place so many have come to love. An annual tradition returns to Mandalay Bay Beach this summer. The Concerts on the Beach series returns to Mandalay Bay after a hiatus last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first show will take place on Sunday, July 4. The holiday weekend show will include Sublime With Rome. This year Mystic Roots and Hirie will open for Sublime with Rome. Tickets start at $55 ( plus service charges or fees). This show starts at 8:30 pm but most will begin at 9 pm.
We recently shared some entertainment returning to Las Vegas. As previously mentioned live shows and events are being announced almost every day. Even though we shared the reopening of a few comedy clubs, there was no mention of one of the most popular comedy series in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts recently announced that Aces of Comedy will be returning to The Mirage this summer.
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.
Donny Osmond will return to Las Vegas next year with his first solo residency at Harrah’s. The announcement by Caesars Entertainment comes less than a year after Donny and Marie ended their 11-year residency at Flamingo. The new show will be the first time guests can get up close and personal with one of the most famous names to grace the Vegas Strip.
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.

Shows and entertainment are slowly returning to Las Vegas casinos. Recently three shows at Caesars Entertainment properties announced their return for late October. Absinthe will return to Caesars Palace on Oct. 28. Piff The Magic Dragon will hit the stage at Flamingo a night later on Oct. 29. A week earlier, on Oct. 22, X Country will once again perform at Harrah’s.
It’s been a strange year around the world with COVID-19 impacting just about everyone everywhere. One of the more abnormal events in Las Vegas – besides casinos closing – is the lack of big events. Vegas is an event-driven town and that’s what draws so many visitors. Whether the event is a convention, trade show, sporting event, or a concert there hasn’t been a single major event for people to attend in Las Vegas since March. In a perfect world, things will be different next year. One casino operator is planning as though major entertainment events will be able to take place by next summer.
Las Vegas continues to build on the moniker of being the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” There’s some kind of new show, residency or concert announced almost daily. It’s difficult to keep track but we’re doing our best to offer both entertainment updates along with other Las Vegas news and tips.
Wynn Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood both announced Las Vegas residencies for rock performers made famous in the 1980s. Bryan Adams will be performing a limited engagement at Wynn while the Scorpions will perform at Plant Hollywood. These two residency announcements came as a surprise to some.
