MGM Resorts that provide casino services worldwide are bringing live entertainment back to their Las Vegas properties. As we understood, Nevada’s governor wouldn’t disapprove; on the contrary – he reminds residents about the importance of preserving the state’s long-term economy and avoiding “COVID fatigue.”

After nearly 8 months since live entertainment was shut down due to the pandemic, MGM Resorts announced Tuesday that seven shows would return to three of its Vegas properties starting November 6.

The lineup includes:

  • David Copperfield’s Live The Impossible,
  • Comedian Carrot Top,
  • Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club,
  • Thunder from Down Under,
  • Fantasy,
  • Jabbawockeez,
  • The Australian Bee Gees.

Caesars Entertainment is also coming back to the Strip with three shows soon. “X-Country” plans to reopen on Thursday, October 22, while “Absinthe” and “Piff the Magic Dragon” will start welcoming guests towards the end of October.

The Mandatory Health Measures Follow The Reopening

Naturally, MGM Resorts will follow the necessary precautions, and the shows will have limited capacity in order to accommodate social distancing. For some of them, that requires larger theaters, and some venues changed are as follows:

  • David Copperfield will come back to the David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand.
  • Carrot Top will perform in the Luxor Theater.
  • Brad Garrett’s will bring his comedy show to the resort’s Studio A&B Ballrooms
  • Thunder From Down Under will be located in the resort’s Thunderland Showroom at the Excalibur along with the Australian Bee Gees.
  • Fantasy will move to the Luxor Theater.
  • Jabbawockeez will bring the “Timeless” performance to the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The audience will be limited to no more than 250 guests per venue, as per the state’s requirements. That includes the physical distancing of six feet between guests and 25 feet between guests and performers to protect both of them. MGM Resorts has come up with its own Seven Point Safety Plan and the “Convene With Confidence” Program, which outlines the company’s health and safety measures aimed to protect its guests and employees.

Las Vegas Taking The First Step In Reclaiming Its Title

After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World.

He said that relaunching live entertainment was stated George Kliavkoff on the way to Las Vegas becoming the “Entertainment Capital of the World” again.

Kliavkoff believes that bringing live performances back to the Strip will help the gaming market of Las Vegas and the overall economy of the state. Gaming revenues have been falling behind significantly at the larger casinos due to the absence of shows, midweek conventions, and tourism.

Are New Restrictions Going To Be Places Due To Another COVID-19 Surge?

Gov. Steve Sisolak eased the state’s large gathering policy earlier this month. Soon after that, the residents were warned about an “alarming trend” of novel COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. The timing of this surge coincides, which coincides with the loosening of the in-person gathering limits.

Steve Sisolak advised that locals and out-of-state visitors shouldn’t forget about their health and neglect safety precautions. The restrictions he introduced before weren’t accepted warmly by the public. The state has just started to recover from these “wildly unpopular measures,” as people call them. However, the governor confirmed that there won’t be any restrictions placed due to a significant trend in new cases of COVID-19.

Sisolak acknowledged COVID-19 fatigue and added that “unfortunately, the virus doesn’t get fatigued. It’s alive and well. It’s that simple. We can’t get tired when the virus isn’t tired.”
