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).

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.
“Fantasy” – Luxor
The adult dance show resumes daily at 10:30 p.m. on Friday (Feb. 19).
The Australian Bee Gees – Excalibur
