Caesars Entertainment Announces Enhancements to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

 


Caesars Entertainment Enhances The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with Significant Investments in 
Unique Guest Experience and Innovative Technical Elements

 

Caesars Entertainment Assumes Operational Control of the Award-Winning Venue and Enters Co-Promotion Agreement with Live Nation

 

Caesars Entertainment announced plans today to renovate The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with significant technical and design updates to its landmark venue recognized as Billboard Magazine’s “Venue of the Decade.” The Colosseum will undergo an exciting evolution to incorporate a new state-of-the-art sound system, new moving light fixtures and high-definition LED video wall into the technical capabilities of the space, while still preserving the celebrated character and prestige of the iconic theater. Also, the world’s top venue of its size will now be able to facilitate multiple seating arrangements, including VIP banquettes with bottle service and a general admission setup on the main floor, to accommodate many genres and entertainment experiences for guests through the city’s only automated lift seating system.

 

Caesars Entertainment assumes operational control of The Colosseum and begins its partnership with Live Nation, the No. 1 live entertainment promoter in the world. Together, the two industry leaders will elevate the experience for its legendary roster of artists as well as the more than 400,000 guests hosted each year.

 

“We’re thrilled to make the best entertainment experiences in Las Vegas even better by enhancing The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with its innovative design and unique elements,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment. “The timing of these enhancements couldn’t be better as Caesars Entertainment and Live Nation now partner to program The Colosseum with a commitment to bring world-class performers to this refreshed, iconic entertainment venue. The best seat in Las Vegas just got better.”
“Artist residencies have become the dominant form of theater entertainment in Las Vegas. Fans around the world come to Las Vegas to see their favorite stars perform in intimate settings with incredible productions they can find nowhere else,” said Kurt Melien, Live Nation Las Vegas president. “The world’s most legendary artists have graced The Colosseum’s stage since its inception, and we are excited to partner with Caesars Entertainment to further attract the biggest names in music, creating a hub for live entertainment that is unmatched by any other destination in the world.”

 

Since opening in 2003, The Colosseum changed the live music experience on the Las Vegas Strip by pioneering the modern artist residency model and successfully welcoming entertainment’s biggest superstars to the city. 

 

The Colosseum will begin its refresh in early July and marks the first major update to the space since its revolutionary debut on the Las Vegas Strip when it was built for the opening of Celine Dion’s epic multi-decade long Las Vegas residency. The Colosseum renovation is set to begin after the final dates of Reba, Brooks & Dunn on July 6 and is slated to reopen again in early fall. 

Technical Advancements
Capitalization on technical advancements only recently available, the audio and lighting packages will be upgraded with newer, state-of-the-art equipment. Additionally, the massive LED video screen, known by artists and guests as the venue’s awe-inspiring focal point that stretches 110 feet long and 34 feet tall, will be replaced completely, more than doubling its resolution and increasing in size. 

 

In addition to the technical advancements, the award-winning venue will also introduce Las Vegas’ first-of-its-kind modular seating capability via an automated lift system, allowing for immense viewing flexibility, enhanced show offerings, and more immersive fan interactions. These modernizations showcase Caesars Entertainment’s commitment to providing musical acts with a premier performance atmosphere while continuing to elevate the guest experience.

 

“While we recognize The Colosseum is already top of its class, these changes will allow for more flexibility in our booking process and give us the opportunity to thrill fans with new and diverse offerings,” said Gastwirth. “Our goal is that these modernizations will excite musical acts with an unparalleled stage experience and guests, whether dancing in the now available general admission section, enjoying a show in VIP booths with friends or taking in their favorite singer in a more traditional theater setting, will appreciate the attention to detail we have expanded on for the future of this beautiful venue.”

 

Design Additions

 

Scéno Plus, the world-renowned theatre designers out of Montreal, returns as the design lead on the project. The original conceivers of The Colosseum, they have been tasked with the delicate job of making changes to the venue without compromising its essence in the consistently awarded theater space, that has been named Billboard Touring Awards “Top Venue Under 5,000” 13 times (the only winner in the category since its introduction in 2005). 

 

“The Colosseum has proven itself not only as a critical and commercial success, but also as a leader in design, as shown by high-caliber projects around the globe all chasing to achieve its same level of elegance and status,” said Benoit Panaccio, theatre designer. “Scéno Plus is incredibly proud to return to further advance The Colosseum for today’s guests and even prouder to continue our longstanding and successful partnership with Caesars Entertainment.”  

 

Additionally, the seating in the venue will be entirely refurbished, updating the plush red seats, none of which is more than 145 feet from the stage, with new custom fabrics for a luxurious and comfortable viewing experience. Also, The Colosseum will now include a new VIP area, complete with banquettes for groups from two to 10 and bottle/cocktail service. For added convenience, the lobby bar will increase in size, allowing for faster service when ordering specialty cocktails, beverages and snacks, while merchandise areas will also move to better accommodate the flow of guests into the theater. 

 

 Ownership
With more than 10,000 live events hosted each year and 3 million tickets sold annually, Caesars Entertainment adds the flagship venue to its current portfolio of operating more than 50 venues across 13 states and five countries. Caesars Entertainment along with Live Nation looks to utilize this new leadership role within The Colosseum to continue to trailblaze and reimagine the evolution of the resident artist model and include more limited engagements and tour stops.

Billboard and dick clark productions announced today that renowned musical performer Celine Dion will be honored with the esteemed ICON Award on the “2016 Billboard Music Awards.”  Dion will also take to the stage for a special rendition of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On” after she accepts one of the most prestigious Billboard awards an artist can receive. The ICON Award is a lifetime achievement award that honors the cultural impact of an artist whose extraordinary talent as a creator and entertainer has stood the test of time. Past recipients include Neil Diamond (2011), Stevie Wonder (2012), Prince (2013) and Jennifer Lopez (2014).

“Celine Dion has a huge repertoire of monster hits and she personally chose to perform ‘The Show Must Go On’ as her ICON performance on the Billboard Music Awards,” stated “2016 Billboard Music Awards” executive producer Mark Bracco. “I think at this moment in her life, the song has many meanings and it’s an amazing choice.”

One of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history, Celine Dion has sold almost 250 million albums during her over 30-year career. She has earned five Grammy Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, two Academy Awards, six American Music Awards, 20 Juno Awards (Canada) and an astonishing 40 Felix Awards (Quebec).  She’s placed 17 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, including a dozen top 10 efforts — four of which reached No. 1. Her most recent studio album, 2013’s Loved Me Back To Life, continued her hot streak in the top 10, as it debuted at No. 2 on the chart. Additionally, with 11 No. 1s on the Adult Contemporary chart, she holds the record for the most chart-toppers by a woman in the 55-year history of the list. In 2004, Celine received the Diamond award at the World Music Awards recognizing her status as the best-selling female artist of all time. In 2007 she was honored with the Legend Award at World Music Awards in recognition of her global success and outstanding contribution to the music industry. Celine continues to perform her critically-acclaimed Las Vegas residency, “Celine” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and will hit an epic 1,000 performances in the venue this fall.

 Tickets for Las Vegas show go on sale Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 a.m.

 

As critics and fans alike rave over his riotous performances, Jeff Dunham, the comedic tour de force,  and his hilarious cast of characters, announced they are taking Las Vegas by storm once again when his “Disorderly Conduct” tour stops by The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Thursday, Dec. 12 at 8 p.m. The show is jointly presented by Caesars Palace and AEG Live.

 

Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. and may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, by calling 1-888-9-AXS-TIX (1-888-929-7849) or online by visiting www.thecolosseum.com or www.axs.com, keyword “Jeff Dunham.”  Ticket prices are $89.50, $69.50, $59.50 and $49.50 (all prices include 10% Live Entertainment Tax). Showtime is 8 p.m. Orders are subject to additional service charges and fees.

 

Fans all over the world can look forward to a new jam packed show with more laughs than ever before. Dunham’s famed troupe of sidekicks are back: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border José Jalapeño, and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.

 

Dunham and his comedic sidekicks’ most recent Comedy Central one hour special entitled “Minding the Monsters,” is the fifth in a string of record-breaking specials. It debuted on Comedy Central to 7.5 million viewers, making it the most watched special of the year for the network.  Upon its release on DVD, it was the #1 comedy DVD on Amazon.com and exceeded platinum sales within six days.  It has already reached triple platinum status.   

 

The amazing rise of Dunham continues apace, with 2013 having seen him continue to pack arena-sized venues.  Dunham and his sidekicks are preparing for their fifth trip to Europe this fall, stopping in Scandinavia, Belgium, the Netherlands and Iceland.

 

Outside of the tour, fans will soon get the chance to see Achmed the Dead Terrorist like he’s never been seen before! Dunham will be premiering his very first animated feature “Achmed Saves America,” starring the world’s most beloved, failed bad-guy!  In this full length animated movie, Achmed is having a very bad day… After accidentally blowing himself up, the world’s most incompetent suicide bomber finds himself whisked away from his homeland by a giant bald eagle and dropped off in… Americaville, USA. There, mistaken by the kind-hearted Wilson family for a visiting French exchange student, “The Little Skeleton That Couldn’t” bumblingly plots to destroy the town and all of its “infidels.”  But, once he’s exposed to the sweet things in life — including all-you-can-eat buffets and frozen yogurt — Achmed’s campaign of hate turns into a patriotic All-American lovefest.

 

The phenomenal international success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central specials, which set global records for both ratings and sales. Dunham’s 4th Comedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers overall. The global TV event enjoyed a never-before simultaneous same day worldwide debut in a dozen countries. Dunham continued to break ratings records at the end of 2011, when The Bio Channel’s premiere of Jeff Dunham: “Birth of a Dummy” became the network’s top-rated telecast ever.

 

No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared  Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.”  Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for two years in a row.

LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE, THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM INTERNATIONAL ICON CELINE DION

CELINE DION’S LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE
AVAILABLE IN THE U.S. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5

 

LISTEN TO NEW SINGLE TODAY AT CELINEDION.COM




Columbia Records is thrilled to announce the North American release of Loved Me Back To Life, the highly anticipated new album from multi-platinum-selling and five-time Grammy Award-winning musical legend Celine Dion. Loved Me Back To Life, Dion’s first English-language album in six years, will be released in the U.S. Tuesday, November 5 on Columbia Records (see track list below).

The album’s pulsating, upbeat first single, also titled “Loved Me Back To Life,” is available digitally today. Pre-order the album at CelineDion.com, iTunes, and Amazon. Dion will perform “Loved Me Back To Life” live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, September 6 and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Wednesday, September 11. Listen to “Loved Me Back To Life” on CelineDion.com now.

Loved Me Back To Life offered Dion the chance to work with a team of exceptional producers and songwriters including Ne-Yo, Diane Warren, Tricky Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Eg White, Daniel Merriweather, Babyface, Audra Mae Butts, Play Production, Eman, Janis Ian, Danny Mercer, Andrew Goldstein, Shaffer Smith, Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, Corparal, Sauce, Kyle Townsend, Dana Parish, Andrew Hollander, Aaron Pearce, Kuk Harrell, and Walter Afanasieff. The album’s single and title track was written by Sham & Motesart and Sia. In addition, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder lend their incredible talents as Dion’s duet partners.

In December of 2007, Dion concluded an unprecedented concert engagement in Las Vegas—five consecutive years of sold-out shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a $100 million venue built exclusively for her performances. This historic, original show, entitled “A New Day…”, was one of the highest grossing concerts in music history, selling more than 3 million tickets in its run and helping make Dion the highest-grossing touring artist in the world from 2000 to 2010. In 2011, Celine returned to The Colosseum with a brand-new critically-acclaimed show, simply entitled “Celine,” playing to sold-out audiences since opening night. This spectacular show, which will continue for several years to come, features Dion’s greatest hits, some surprising covers, and a few songs featured on Loved Me Back To Life, including the title track.

Tickets for Celine’s 29 performances from Dec. 30, 2013 to March 19, 2014 are now onsale. Ticket prices are $55, $95, $140, $175 and $250, plus applicable fees, and may be purchased by calling 877.4CELINE or 888.9.AXS.TIX, online at www.thecolosseum.com or www.celineinvegas.com or in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For groups of 10 or more, call 1-866-574-3851.

Having sold more than 220 million albums around the world, Celine Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history. In addition to numerous U.S. and international gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications, Celine Dion has seen two of her albums—Falling Into You and Let’s Talk About Love—each achieve RIAA Diamond status in recognition of sales of more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone (each selling more than 30 million worldwide). She has been awarded five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “My Heart Will Go On” in 1998, Album of the Year and Best Pop Album for Falling Into You in 1996, and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Beauty and the Beast” in 1992.

Tony Bennett, America’s favorite crooner with more than six decades of pop, standards, show tunes and jazz hits, will perform a special intimate performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Friday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m.
The show is jointly presented by Caesars Palace and AEG Live.

Tickets go on-sale Friday, March 15 at 10 a.m. and may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, by calling 1-888-9-AXS-TIX (1-888-929-7849) or online by visiting www.thecolosseum.comor www.axs.com , keyword
“Tony Bennett.” Ticket prices are $196, $136, $96 and $59.50 (all prices include 10% Live Entertainment Tax). Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Orders are subject to additional service charges and fees.

The son of a grocer and Italian-born immigrant, Anthony Dominick Benedetto, aka Tony Bennett, was born on Aug. 3, 1926, in the Astoria section of Queens, New York. With worldwide record sales in the millions, Bennett has received 17 Grammy Awards including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The MTV generation took to Bennett during his appearance with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the 1993 MTV
Video Awards. He appeared on MTV Unplugged and the recording of the same name earned him the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. “Tony Bennett has not just bridged the generation gap,” observed The New York Times, “he has demolished it. He has connected with a younger crowd weaned on rock. And there have been no compromises.”

Bennett’s initial fame came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags To Riches” and a cover of Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.” He has placed two-dozen songs in the Top 40, including “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)” and his signature hit, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” One of only a few artists to have albums chart in the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and the new millennium, he’s
introduced multitudes of songs into the Great American Songbook that have become pop music standards. Upon the release of his boxed set collection, TONY BENNETT: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, The New York Times commented, “we aren’t likely to see a recording career like this again.” Bennett made music history when he became the oldest artist at the age of 86 to achieve a #1 record on the Billboard charts with his DUETS II CD. Bennett is a Kennedy Center Honoree and an NEA Jazz Master.

A multiple Emmy winner, his prime-time special, TONY BENNETT: AN AMERICAN CLASSIC, which was directed by Oscar winner Rob Marshall (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha”), won seven Emmy Awards in 2007. Bennett has authored four books: his official biography, two books devoted to his artwork and the latest New York Times
Bestseller, Life Is a Gift. He is a dedicated painter whose interest in art began as a child. He continues to paint daily, even while touring. He has exhibited work around theworld, and three of his original paintings are part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.

Throughout his career, Bennett has always put his heart and time into humanitarian concerns. He’s raised millions for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. His original paintings each year grace the cover of the American Cancer Society’s holiday greeting card. He received Martin Luther King Center’s “Salute to Greatness Award” for his efforts to fight discrimination, having marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in 1965. The United Nations presented him with their 2007 Humanitarian Award. In honor of his great friend and staunchest supporter, Bennett established the Frank Sinatra School for the Arts, which opened as a New York City public high school, offering an extensive arts curriculum, in September of 2001. In 2009, a permanent site for the school opened in Bennett’s hometown of Astoria, Queens. With his wife Susan, they founded Exploring the Arts, which supports the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts and provides support to arts education in public schools.

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:
