Resorts World is just over one month from opening its doors, and the hype just keeps building. Last week, the massive Las Vegas resort and casino announced that it was partnering with crypto wallet Gemini, allowing for a technologically advanced and integrated experience for guests wanting to use digital currency. This week? The news turns to entertainment, and who and when the major headliners are that will be taking the stage at Resorts World Theatre. The eagerly-anticipated opening date is creeping closer every day, and this newest announcement just goes to show that Resorts World Las Vegas is going to be huge; something the world has never seen before.
Dates for Mega-Star Headliners Announced
Concerts West and AEG Presents with Resorts World Las Vegas has announced the star-studded headliners dates for the Vegas property’s first year.

The state-of-the-art venue is a multi-level masterpiece of collaboration between Resorts World and AEG Presents. The venue will boast the largest and tallest performance stage in Vegas, but the farthest seat is only 150 feet from the front, making it both massive in scale and intimate in feel. A press release promises, “unmatched immersive audio experience through more than 265 L-Acoustics speakers powered by L-ISA hyperreal technology.” So not only will you have the best view from anywhere in the multi-level seating, your ears will be caressed by some of the best speakers in the industry when you enjoy your superstar faves on the massive stage.
