LAS VEGAS (July 16, 2020) – Las Vegas’s newest concert and entertainment experience will come alive when Resorts World Las Vegas opens in summer 2021. A 5,000-capacity concert and entertainment venue, The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas will be outfitted to host a myriad of affairs – from star-studded concerts to convention, corporate and sporting events.

The Theatre – a joint development between Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG Presents – will be exclusively programed and operated by Concerts West, a division of AEG Presents. This new generation venue will introduce the next wave of superstar residencies and engagements, as well as must-see events, to the city’s coveted entertainment landscape.

“AEG Presents and Concerts West are synonymous with global entertainment and we’re thrilled to bring their tremendous foresight of entertainment operations, and unmatched lineup of international talent, to Resorts World Las Vegas’s stage,” said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. “It’s critical that our partners share in our mission to redefine the hospitality experience and create defining moments for our guests. Over the past year, we have been working closely with AEG Presents and Concerts West to identify ways we can elevate programming and amplify the current concert and theater model here at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas when we open next summer.”

“Resorts World Las Vegas shares our vision and passion of providing next-level entertainment and best-in-class venue experiences to sophisticated customers looking for something fresh and exciting,” said John Meglen, President and Co-CEO of Concerts West. “For over two decades, we’ve paved the way for the modern-day residency which has evolved into a proven model of success on the Las Vegas Strip. We look forward to introducing and sharing incredible programming in the near future and continue to pioneer the future of entertainment with our partners at Resorts World Las Vegas.”

The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas is designed by Scéno Plus, a Montreal-based entertainment design firm that is internationally renowned for designing award-winning performance venues around the world. With a design approach featuring innovative staging, the latest in technology and audio-visual capabilities, and unrivaled guest and artist amenities, the scalable venue will introduce first-of-its-kind functionality to the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” Stage design and technical features include:

  • One of the largest and tallest stages on the Las Vegas Strip, the 64-foot deep by 196-foot wide stage is 13,550 square feet and features a height of 95-feet at gridiron level with a 78-foot clearance below steel
  • A proscenium opening that is one of the largest in Las Vegas – an impressive 123-feet wide by 50-feet tall – that can be easily modified with a unique motorized system
  • Three scenic and performance stage lifts totaling 576 square feet that can accommodate up to 86,400 pounds.
  • The newest state-of-the-art, fully immersive audio system comprised of 265 speakers, enabling a multi-dimensional surround sound experience
  • A comprehensive automated lighting package and robotic follow spot system with GrandMA3 control
  • Fully configurable LED screens totaling almost 5,000 square feet

Enchanting guests from the moment they arrive, The Theatre’s modern black and champagne design aesthetic will provide a lustrous backdrop that’s equally as dazzling as the night’s entertainment. A 65-foot custom chandelier will welcome concertgoers into a four-story lobby adorned with honest and refined materials like polished stone and bright metals, along with elegant accessories and rich details creating a distinctive, high-energy environment.

The multi-level theatre offers versatile seating configurations, permitting up to 5,000 capacity, distributed between the orchestra floor and two balcony levels including dedicated VIP seating. With the furthest seat only 150 feet from the stage, the venue offers an intimate and unique shared experience between the artist and the audience, with unparalleled comfort, unobstructed sightlines and unmatched room acoustics.

Designed to accommodate VIP experiences and host artist meet and greets and private groups, The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas boasts a dedicated VIP guest entrance, two luxe private salons with plush lounge seating and full-service bars, and premium VIP seating with bottle service for the ultimate night of entertainment.
