Entertainment Returns to the Las Vegas Strip at MGM Resorts

MGM Resorts shared details about the first live shows to return to the Las Vegas Strip after months where they were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with current government guidelines, the company will return seven shows to stages at MGM Grand, Luxor and Excalibur beginning Nov. 6.

“After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World,” said George Kliavkoff, MGM Resorts’ president of entertainment and sports. “While there is still a long road in our city’s recovery, the reintroduction of these shows is an important first step. Nov. 6 is going to feel very special as we welcome back team members and guests and bring the curtains up for that first time.”

This initial phase of entertainment allows for a maximum audience of 250 guests, physically distanced at six feet between parties and a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers. In some cases the show’s venue may reflect a change from previous performances in order to meet all guidelines. Beginning Nov. 6, guests will be able to enjoy:

MGM Grand:

  • David Copperfield will return to the David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand Emmy Award-winning illusionist Copperfield wows audiences with his stage production “Live the Impossible.” Recipient of the Living Legend honor by the Library of Congress, Copperfield holds 11 Guinness World Records, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has sold more tickets than any solo performer in history.

  • Jabbawockeez will bring its signature moves and “Timeless” show to the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Jabbawockeez has developed a one-of-a-kind style that has positioned the group as the most influential dance crew in the world. Known for creativity, choreography, athleticism and intricate synchronization, the dance crew brings a different technique and perspective to form the original style that makes the Jabbawockeez so distinct.

  • Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club will take to the stage in the resort’s Studio A & B Ballroom. Emmy Award-winning comedian and actor Brad Garrett brings his top-quality comedy to MGM Grand nightly.

  • Named an all-time Best of Vegas (2020) for Best Female Revue, Fantasy has remained one of The Strip’s top productions since its premiere 20 years ago.

It is the definitive live celebration of five decades of memorable music written by the Brothers Gibb.

  • Thunder From Down Under will perform in the resort’s Thunderland Showroom. Australia’s Thunder From Down Under is the number one male revue show in the world, not only performing in Las Vegas nightly, but also touring in Germany, Ireland, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Guam, Thailand, and Macau, among others.

MGM Resorts spent months developing and implementing its comprehensive Seven Point Safety Plan and its Meeting and Conventions “Convene with Confidence” program, which outlines the company’s approach to protecting the health and safety of guests and employees. A “Convene with Confidence” program specifically for entertainment and sporting events also has been created and will be implemented Nov. 6 when shows reopen. The multi-layered plans look at everything from sanitation stations, masking and physical distancing to digital solutions that minimize touch points as well as enhanced cleaning protocol. Details around both programs can be found at MGM Resorts Entertainment Convene with Confidence.

“Our hope is that as we successfully navigate the reintroduction of these initial shows,” said Kliavkoff. “We can continue working with our state and local officials to create an environment in which we can return even more of the city’s entertainment landscape. Entertainment and events are in our DNA and we are anxious to get back to our roots.”
