Just want to keep everyone up on what is happening in the great city of Las Vegas. We have been the hardest hit state for jobs, but we have been partially reopened for three days now.
The demonstrations on the streets were down to only 40 people last night.
Cirque shows announced today that it may be another 3 months before they reopen, but by July 1, at least a few shows such as Carrot Top, Hans Klok, Human Nature, The Bee Gees, and most of the wonderful David Saks shows in the Miracle Mile shops, attached to Planet Hollywood Casino, will be open.

Caesars Palace marked the reopening of its main lobby doors to the public with a special moment on the Roman Plaza featuring Caesars Entertainment headliner Wayne Newton, Caesar and Cleopatra of the resort’s Royal Court, and Caesars Entertainment CEO Tony Rodio. Newton was the first to welcome guests and introduced Rodio. Rodio reminisced about all the rich memories in Caesars Palace’s 54-year history—from the world-famous boxing matches to iconic entertainment including Newton’s show at Cleopatra’s Barge, and more. In that time, the resort had never closed its doors up until March 17, 2020, and Rodio did acknowledge the country’s continued challenging circumstances. However, he enthusiastically closed by inviting guests to “get the next 50 years rolling.” Additionally, first casino guest Ben Laparne ceremoniously rolled the first dice at a craps table with Newton and Rodio cheering him on inside Caesars Palace.

Flamingo Las Vegas welcomed back guests in true Flamingo fashion, with two statuesque showgirls in the historic orange and pink Bob Mackie finale costumes from the former “Jubilee” show, with the new addition of bedazzled face masks.
