The Colosseum at Caesars

The Colosseum at Caesars

Consider a massive theater based on the ancient Colosseum in Rome, though with 10 motorized stage lifts; 200 acoustical panels to control amplified sound; a state-of-the-art humidity control system; and a completely motorized backstage, all to the tune of about $95 million. Nothing is too good for perpetual money-earner Celine Dion (on break right now due to some family health concerns), for whom the Colosseum was originally built. With all the incredible technology—including a $10 million, 120-foot-wide by 40-foot-tall LED screen, which provides the illusion of 3D stage scenery (it’s the largest LED screen in North America)—this is one of the most awe-inducing performance spaces in America. And while it’s considered to be Celine’s theater, it also hosts other entertainers in its 4,296 capacity room, including Cher, Bette Midler, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain—and Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn have just signed on where Shania left off. Find a concert there while you visit; the experience alone warrants a ticket.
