It’s got the unmistakable Mac sound,” said Mick Fleetwood.
 

 

Fleetwood Mac was founded by Peter Green in 1967 and was named after Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. After Peter Green left in 1969, Fleetwood and McVie remained as original members, and the band has since featured a cast of brilliant talents.

THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE IN LAS VEGAS, HOME TO THE GREATEST ENTERTAINERS IN THE WORLD SHANIA TWAIN

THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE IN LAS VEGAS,
HOME TO THE GREATEST ENTERTAINERS IN THE WORLD

Preparing to mark its tenth milestone anniversary in March 2013, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace is welcoming international superstar Shania Twain as its newest resident artist this month. As the “Home to the Greatest Entertainers in the World,” The Colosseum enters 2013 and beyond ready to continue to provide a global audience with not only the best in entertainment, but also the best venue for enjoying superstar talent, events and special performances.

Having perfected the modern-day concept of Superstar Resident Performers, which had all but been forgotten since Elvis left the stage, The Colosseum launched a new decade of great entertainment featuring such box office heavyweights as Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Cher and Jerry Seinfeld. Add the incredible list of featured performances over the past decade including such notable names as Bob Dylan, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, Janet Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres, Mariah Carey, Dave Chappelle, Stevie Nicks, Jamie Foxx and Kathy Griffin and it is not surprising since its opening, The Colosseum has received some of the industry’s most prestigious and coveted awards, including:

· Named Venue of the Decade for 2000 – 2009 by Billboard Magazine for venues with capacities of 5,000 or less.
· Named Top Small Venue by The Billboard Touring Awards all seven years the award was offered: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

· Named Top Small Venue by The Billboard Backstage Pass Awards in 2004.

Today, The Colosseum is welcoming fans from across the world as Shania Twain debuts her highly anticipated new Las Vegas production SHANIA: STILL THE ONE.

Built in 2003 for the premiere of Celine Dion A New Day…, The Colosseum is a modern replica of Rome’s architectural wonder, complete with world class acoustics and a classic style. After Dion’s legendary five-year run ended in December 2007, The Colosseum underwent an extensive transformation to prepare for the next generation of resident artists – including her record-breaking return in 2011.

Designed to accommodate stage shows of all varieties, The Colosseum seats an impressive 4,298 with no seat farther than 120-feet from the stage and is equipped with state-of-the-art audio and visual elements, including one of the largest indoor high-definition LED screens in North America (120-feet wide by 33-feet tall).

It reflects everything we do here, from our bookings to continuously updating the venue to take advantage of the best technologies to our customer service and the experience we offer once you enter our doors,” says John Meglen, president and co-CEO, AEG Live/Concerts West.

“We couldn’t be more excited for the debut of Shania Twain and the roster of resident performances at The Colosseum this year,” concludes Gary Selesner, president, Caesars Palace. “We have no doubt this anniversary year, The Colosseum will continue to host some of the most incredible moments in music and entertainment.”

The Colosseum at Caesars is Named Top Venue at 2011 Billboard Touring Awards

THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE NAMED TOP VENUE
AT 2011 BILLBOARD TOURING AWARDS

Sixth Consecutive Win for World-Class Venue

 

For the sixth consecutive year (dating back to 2005 when the category was first introduced), The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been named Top Venue Under 5,000 seats at the recent 2011 Billboard Touring Awards.  The annual award was based on global box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2010, through Sept. 30, 2011.

 
The ongoing success of the world-class venue can be credited to the stellar entertainers that grace the stage of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and the distinctive artist residency model featuring the greatest entertainers in the world, including: Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain (who begins her run on Dec. 1, 2012).
 
In 2011, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was home to Cher’s sell-out run of the final shows of her three-year residency, (which culminated in February), along with the first year of 54 sold-out performances of Celine Dion’s triumphant return that began in March.  In August, Rod Stewart kicked off the first two runs of sell-out performances of his two-year residency of Rod Stewart: The Hits. and in September Elton John returned for his second residency at The Colosseum with the premiere of his sold-out run of The Million Dollar Piano.  
 
The Colosseum is booked and operated by AEG Live. “The past year has been very strong for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  In addition to opening productions with the newest resident performers-Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Elton John- we also announced the addition of Shania Twain to the lineup which begins in December 2012,” said John Meglen, president and co-CEO of AEG Live/Concerts West. “This rotation along with presenting top-notch touring performers gives us the ability to offer an unforgettable entertainment experience to nearly every visitor to Las Vegas. Our ability to attract the biggest, most diverse group of international superstars is one of the reasons people love to visit The Colosseum.”

 
“Celine Dion had a triumphant return to The Colosseum, ushering in a whole new era of top-shelf entertainment for the venue and, frankly, the city of Las Vegas, “ added Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. “Opening March 15, 2011, Celine’s first 20 shows grossed more than $14M, and we saw a ripple effect from those ticket sales by way of increased hotel revenue at Caesars Palace.”
 

Other entertainers who helped make The Colosseum at Caesars Palace a number-one venue in 2011 include Jerry Seinfeld, Luis Miguel, Jeff Dunham, Diana Ross, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Nicks, and Janet Jackson. 

Tickets are available for upcoming performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace including;
