Rumors have circulated for many months now that MGM was planning on a new theater venue to be created in Las Vegas. The casino company has now officially announced they are working on a new 5,000 seat theater for robust entertainment in Sin City.
The new theater will offer a full calendar of events with many of the most celebrated performers in the music industry. The new theater is being called the Monte Carlo theater as of right now but will most likely be renamed as the Monte Carlo is about to undergo a rebranding phase. The theater will be located next to The Park, a shopping and entertainment district. Also nearby is the MGM-AEG arena which has the capacity to house as many as 20,000 people.
The president of MGM Resorts International, Bill Hornbuckle, has commented on the new Monte Carlo theater. Hornbuckle stated that the new theater will allow the company to host performers that there has never been a home for. This will broaden the entertainment offerings of MGM and provide an additional opportunity to expand the relationships of entertainment to the properties around the world.
The Park and Arena project should be completed by April 2016 with the theater to continue to be under construction until the end of next year. Because of the new construction, certain shows that already exist will be moving to the new venue once it opens.
The Blue Man Group has plans to move to the Luxor in the fall which is currently home to the Jabbawockeez. The Jabbawockeez will be moving their show to a renovated theater where Beacher’s Madhouse performs. Beacher’s will continue to perform at the venue on Saturdays.
Artist renderings have been provided for the new theater venue and the beautiful aspects of the venue have the city abuzz. The gorgeous design will add a new energy and aspect to The Strip, creating a new destination for visitors to enjoy and come back to again and again. MGM Resorts is boasting the venue as a vibrant destination and it could prove to be the new hot spot in Las Vegas.
The MGM-AEG arena and entertainment area will be a wonderful addition to The Strip and will change the area in a most dramatic way. New information is being added on a regular basis with new details of the new venue area. A Shake Shack and Tom’s Urban are among the new additions coming to the area. Bars and restaurants are being added to the area to provide an overall guest experience along The Strip for visitors to enjoy.
Rumors continue to circulate as to what will be coming next as part of this project. MGM seems to be releasing details in a timely manner as changes are made to the venue plans. All in all, the new aspects being added to The Strip will provide additional dining, bar service and attractions for visitors and residents to enjoy. Exciting changes are coming and we cannot wait to see what is next!
