LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Caesars Entertainment is shaking up its Las Vegas entertainment lineup. The company told 8 News Now some smaller venues will shutter and certain shows will not return.
The company’s statement reads:
Caesars Entertainment has made a strategic decision to refocus the entertainment programming across our Las Vegas properties.
Unfortunately, this means that some of our smaller capacity venues will close, and some shows will not return. Decisions like these are never easy.
Some of these shows have a long history with us and in Las Vegas. While their run with our company is now ending, we are grateful for their incredible performances, their many talented cast and crew members, and everything they brought to our resorts and guests.
As we move in this new direction, Caesars Entertainment remains committed to live entertainment and creating the most exciting stage experiences for our guests.”Caesars Entertainment
