These Las Vegas Magic Shows Are Reopening (April 2021)

Restrictions are beginning to change in Nevada. What does that mean for the return of live entertainment and specifically magic shows in Las Vegas reopening in 2021?

Magicians and magic shows are a big part of Las Vegas and most have scheduled reopenings.

Many magician's shows are opening as soon as April 12.

There is one notable Las Vegas magician who has not announced reopening and all online events are marked "CANCELLED."

Las Vegas has more than 100 casinos. Many of the casinos including MGM Grand, Caesars, Planet Hollywood and New York - New York have been open for gaming operations since June.

Some casinos like Encore Resort and the Rio All-Suites Hotel have chosen to open only on weekends.

While social-distant gaming has resumed, live entertainment has been almost entirely shut down.

A few larger Las Vegas showrooms attempted to open during the pandemic, but due to restrictions, they closed. David Copperfield’s 750 seat showroom at the MGM Grand opened briefly in November 2020 but closed when restrictions were reduced to a 50-person audience cap.

50% Audience Capacity or MAX 250 People

Business capacity changes in Nevada were recently announced that bring optimism for a safe return to Las Vegas shows-- but don’t expect all shows to return this spring.

Larger cast production shows in Vegas are not expected to return until later in the year.

The new business capacity rules allow for a return to 50% capacity or a maximum audience size of 250 people, whichever is smaller. David Copperfield, Penn & Teller, Matt Franco are just a few of the magicians set to open this April.

Many Vegas showrooms like Copperfeilds at the MGM have booth-style seating and could see a rise to 375 seating capacity soon.

Criss Angel's newly opened rock concert-style magic show Mindreak at Planet Hollywood was suspended and no new dates have been announced. Criss recently announced he's working on an all-new show that combines electronic music and theatre.

The City of Las Vegas tweeted a “Roadmap to Reopening” on March 14 2021 that outlined their steps leading to reducing further restrictions.

Health and Public Safety Changes

All casinos and resorts have been making safety changes increasing their sanitization efforts including hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations throughout their properties.

Mask-wearing is mandatory in public and all hotels and casinos must follow Health and Public Safety guidelines.
