THE 4,298-capacity Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas will not only be undergoing a significant renovation this summer, but reopens with a new partner in Live Nation Entertainment (LNE), replacing AEG.

The Colosseum was built in 2003 for a Celine Dion residency, arranged by AEG-owned Concerts West and designed by Cirque du Soleil director Franco Dragone.  Dion’s multi-year residency ends in June, with AEG’s contract also expiring.

Other artiste residencies at the venue have included Cher, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, and Britney Spears. LNE had its first residency there with Mariah Carey last year.
