In 2016, rock icons Stevie Nicks and The Pretenders christened the stage of Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Part of Nicks’ 24 Karat Gold Tour, the sold-out concert marked the first of several big-name events to be held at the 5,200-seat theater, which plays host to touring acts, sporting events and even conventions and award shows throughout the year as well as multiple-run engagements from some of music’s most acclaimed artists.
“Most of our showrooms and theaters have between 1,000 and 2,000 seats,” said Rick Arpin, senior vice president of entertainment at MGM Resorts International, when asked about the decision to build the theater. “With the significant demand for artists doing multiple-show engagements like we have seen at The Colosseum [at Caesars Palace]and The AXIS [at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino], we wanted to include a similar-sized theater in our portfolio of venues.”
Costing approximately $90 million, the state-of-the-art theater is one of Las Vegas’ most striking venues, with natural lighting and views overlooking The Park, the Strip and the nearby T-Mobile Arena from its concourse areas. The farthest seat is only 145 feet from the stage, and there are a limited number of high-end tables that offer bottle service for VIP guests. The versatile venue can also accommodate seating on its first level as well as standing general admission.
