MGM Resorts International is planning for an approximately 5,000-seat theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. The new concert venue will amplify the vibrant entertainment district taking shape on the west side of the Las Vegas Strip with a robust calendar featuring special engagements by many of the music industry’s most-celebrated performers.
With more than 7 million entertainment tickets sold in 2014 alone, MGM Resorts’ offerings are unrivaled. The Company owns and operates two arenas; two Las Vegas Strip festival lots (62 acres); seven theaters housing Cirque du Soleil production shows; 14 theaters for concerts, headliners and comedy performances; and more than two dozen lounges and nightclubs. Additionally, it is currently developing a new world-class Las Vegas arena as well as integrated resort projects in Macau and National Harbor, Maryland, each of which will feature entertainment venues as central amenities.
Adjacent to The Park and 20,000-seat arena currently under construction on Las Vegas Blvd. between Monte Carlo and New York-New York, the theater will anchor the dynamic new entertainment district currently taking shape. While The Park and Arena are expected to open in April 2016, the Monte Carlo theater is projected to welcome its first act at the end of 2016. Unique to the market, the theater will offer dynamic seating that allows for easy transformation into multiple configurations, reflecting the flexibility of the space.
The development of this new theater at Monte Carlo creates opportunities for two beloved shows within the MGM Resorts family to get back to their roots, returning to the properties where they first wowed Las Vegas audiences
