PLSN Staff • News • October 21, 2020

LAS VEGAS – On Oct. 20, MGM Resorts shared details around the first shows to return following months of closure amid 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 November 6.

More details from MGM Resorts International (

“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. November 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 6 feet between parties and a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers. Please note in some cases the show’s venue may reflect a change from previous performances, in order to meet all guidelines.

Beginning November 6, guests will be able to enjoy:

MGM Grand

  • David Copperfield will return to the David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand.
  • Jabbawockeez will bring its signature moves and “Timeless” show to the MGM Grand Garden Arena
  • Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club will take to the stage in the resort’s Studio A & B Ballrooms
  • Carrot Top will perform in the Luxor Theater

In addition, MGM Resorts noted that:

  • Fantasy, a female revue featuring lead singer Lorena Peril, will perform in the Luxor Theater
  • The Australian Bee Gees will perform in the Excalibur’s Thunderland Showroom
  • Thunder From Down Under will perform in the Excalibur’s Thunderland Showroom

MGM Resorts spent months developing and implementing its comprehensive Seven Point Safety Plan and its Meeting and Conventions: “Convene with Confidence” program, which outline 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 November 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.

Kliavkoff added, “Our hope is that as we successfully navigate the reintroduction of these initial shows, 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.”
