MGM to resume Las Vegas entertainment next month
All casinos in the state were forced to cancel entertainment for almost eight months due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with regulations banning events introduced in mid-March.
However, following the reopening of Nevada’s land-based casinos in June, restrictions have been relaxed further to allow entertainment shows to return from next month.
The initial phase of entertainment will allow for a maximum audience of 250 guests, physically distanced at six feet between parties and a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers.
“After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World,” MGM Resorts’ president of entertainment and sports George Kliavkoff said “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.”
