BATTLEBOTS ANNOUNCES “BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON,” NEW LIVE
SHOW ON LAS VEGAS STRIP BEGINNING FEB. 3, 2023
Tickets on Sale Nov. 14
BattleBots, the hit television show featuring fighting robots, has announced an exclusive live Las Vegas show: “BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON,” which will open Feb. 3, 2023, at BattleBots’ own BattleBox Arena at Caesars Entertainment Studios, 4165 Koval Lane. The daily live show follows the enormous success of the BattleBots World Championship filming season, which finished taping in front of sold-out audiences last weekend.
BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON will be the world’s first robotic combat show and will be exclusive to Las Vegas. Shows take place on Thursdays and Fridays at 6 p.m., Saturdays at 3 and 6 p.m. and Sundays at 12 p.m.
“People of all ages filled the BattleBox Arena over the last two weeks of filming,” said BattleBots CEO Trey Roski. He added, “We know this live show will be an enormous hit. It will feature the most famous fighting robots on the planet, and they’ll be fighting to the death every night. It’s going to be the most violent show in Las Vegas where nobody ever gets hurt. The robot apocalypse starts soon!”
BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON contains all the drama, action and destruction of the TV series, condensed into an intense, fast-moving, 80-minute theater show, featuring many of the most famous robots that have delighted millions of fans all over the world – with names such as Witch Doctor, Kraken, Mammoth, Lock-Jaw, Hypershock and Whiplash, as well as several new robots being specially created for the show. The robots are currently being built by existing robot combat teams.
“Although this is a show designed for a great Las Vegas theater experience, this is not a pre-planned, rehearsed event,” said Greg Munson, co-founder, BattleBots. “All the fights will be real, and no one, not even the drivers, will know what’s going to happen each night. It will be full of shocks, surprises and carnage.”
In addition, some shows will feature fights from rookie teams eager to try out for the next BattleBots World Championships, which will be held at the BattleBox Arena in 2023.
Added Tom Gutteridge, executive producer, BattleBots: “We can’t wait to see what new ideas will be brought to the BattleBox. Every year the robots get more innovative and dangerous. Now Las Vegas audiences will get a chance to see some of them—even before we feature them on TV.”
The phenomenally popular BattleBots television show has amassed a passionate audience in 150 countries, with more than 10 million followers on social media. Soon, fans can witness sparks flying and robots dying nightly as the mechanical stars compete live during each BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON live show.
BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON will offer several types of tickets, from general admission at $49 per person (with $150 family bundles), to premium options up to $125 and limited ultra-VIP seating right next to the iconic BattleBox Arena itself. Some VIP guests will be able to view the robots pre- and post-show and meet the teams. The BattleBots Store will sell apparel, toys, books and other official BattleBots merchandise, and concessions selling snacks and drinks will be available for all fans.
Tickets for the first six months of BATTLEBOTS: DESTRUCT-A-THON will go on sale Monday, Nov. 14.
