Las Vegas’ renowned Caesars Palace is receiving numerous upgrades this year through technical advancements and design additions.
Caesars Entertainment announced that The Colosseum will be renovated; a new state-of-the-art sound system will be incorporated, along with moving light fixtures and a high-definition LED video wall. The video screen, which is already in place and considered a focal point at the venue, will be replaced and increased in both size and resolution. Additionally, the venue will introduce a new modular seating capability with an automated lift system.
In terms of design, the seating in the venue will be completely refurbished and updated with plush red seats, along with a new VIP area dedicated for banquettes with bottle/cocktail service. The lobby will also increase in size to ensure faster service and moderate traffic flow.
The renovations follow The Colosseum’s partnership with Live Nation, and together, they hope to elevate and modernize the theater while still maintaining its “character and prestige.”
“We’re thrilled to make the best entertainment experiences in Las Vegas even better by enhancing The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with its innovative design and unique elements,” Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment said in a press release. “The timing of these enhancements couldn’t be better as Caesars Entertainment and Live Nation now partner to program The Colosseum with a commitment to bring world-class performers to this refreshed, iconic entertainment venue. The best seat in Las Vegas just got better.”
The Colosseum, which opened in 2003 and has become a home for various artists’ residencies, bring in more than 400,000 guests each year and has been named the “Venue of the Decade” by Billboard. Live Nation Las Vegas president Kurt Melien explained that fans around the world come to the city to see these stars perform in intimate settings that they are unable to find anywhere else.
“The world’s most legendary artists have graced The Colosseum’s stage since its inception, and we are excited to partner with Caesars Entertainment to further attract the biggest names in music, creating a hub for live entertainment that is unmatched by any other destination in the world,” Melien said.
Following Reba and Brooks & Dunn’s show on July 6, The Colosseum will close and will reopen again in the fall. Acts set to appear at The Colosseum later this year include Jerry Seinfeld, Rod Stewart, Luis Miguel, and Enrique Iglesias.
