American gaming giant MGM Resorts International is bringing entertainment back to Las Vegas beginning next month with the hopes of bringing more visitors to a struggling Sin City.
Concerts, comedy shows, and circus acts all ceased operation in Las Vegas earlier this year when Covid-19 caused Nevada's casinos to close their doors. When casinos re-opened in June, entertainment shows didn't, and the lack of events hasn't helped get Vegas to attract back new visitors. Now, it appears that the shows are coming back, with each show capped at a maximum of 250 spectators. All visitors will be at least 25 feet from the stage and 6 feet apart.
No word on what the first show to return will be was available at press time
Commenting on the decision MGM Resorts president of entertainment and sports George Kliavkoff said, "After eight months, it's time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World. 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."
