Las Vegas Shows Stage Comeback as Capacity Restrictions Ease

Six Las Vegas shows reopen their doors

By OTS Staff


As Nevada continues to slowly reopen following months of COVID-19-related closures and restrictions, several of Las Vegas’ most celebrated entertainers are returning to the stage. 


MGM Resorts International on Wednesday laid out a timeline for returning shows and schedules for several that have been operating at reduced capacity. Some entertainers, such as illusionist David Copperfield and ventriloquist comedian Terry Fator, will return in March. Others, including Carrot Top and “Fantasy” at Luxor Las Vegas, will resume on Friday (Feb. 19). 


Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club – MGM Grand

Performances at the club, open Thursdays through Saturdays, are being relocated to Studio A and B Ballrooms at MGM Grand beginning today (Feb. 18). 


Carrot Top – Luxor

The prop comic will resume performances on Friday (Feb. 19), with shows Mondays through Saturdays at 8 p.m.

The announcement of returning shows comes as Nevada begins to ease capacity restrictions in the wake of declining COVID-19 hospitalizations and positive tests. Beginning Monday (Feb. 15), many businesses were allowed to operate at 35% capacity (up from 25%). If the state’s downward trend continues, limits will be at 50% on March 15.
