US.- MGM Resorts has announced it will restart entertainment events in Las Vegas from November 6 after nearly eight months of suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the initial phase, events will be permitted with a maximum audience of 250 people. Groups must be distanced six feet apart and a minimum of 25 feet from any on-stage performers.

The MGM Resorts website highlights various sanitary measures such as the regular cleaning of venues between shows, and requirement to wear masks and answer health screening questions.

MGM plans to reinstate seven live shows including magician David Copperfield at MGM Grand, comedian Carrot Top at Luxor and the tribute act the Australian Bee Gees at Excalibur.

President of entertainment and sports at MGM, George Kliavkoff, said: “After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World.

“While there is still a long road in our city’s recovery, the reintroduction of these shows is an important first step. November 6 is going to feel very special as we welcome back team members and guests and bring the curtains up for that first time.”
