Caesars CEO Tony Rodio, Wayne Newton, Caesar and Cleopatra joined the Caesars Palace reopening; selected outlets now open at The LINQ Promenade; Harrah’s Las Vegas set to resume operations on June 5

LAS VEGAS  – In accordance with directives from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ:CZR) (“Caesars Entertainment” or the “Company”) has resumed hospitality operations in Las Vegas at its Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas properties on June 4.

Additionally, the Company has reopened selected retail and dining outlets along The LINQ Promenade, as well as the High Roller Observation Wheel. On Friday, June 5, at 11 a.m. Pacific Time, Harrah’s Las Vegas will also resume operations.

Caesars Palace marked the reopening of its main lobby doors to the public with a special moment on the Roman Plaza featuring Caesars Entertainment headliner Wayne Newton, Caesar and Cleopatra of the resort’s Royal Court, and Caesars Entertainment CEO Tony Rodio. Newton was the first to welcome guests and introduced Rodio. Rodio reminisced about all the rich memories in Caesars Palace’s 54-year history—from the world-famous boxing matches to iconic entertainment including Newton’s show at Cleopatra’s Barge, and more. In that time, the resort had never closed its doors up until March 17, 2020, and Rodio did acknowledge the country’s continued challenging circumstances. However, he enthusiastically closed by inviting guests to “get the next 50 years rolling.”

Flamingo Las Vegas welcomed back guests in true Flamingo fashion, with two statuesque showgirls in the historic orange and pink Bob Mackie finale costumes from the former “Jubilee” show, with the new addition of bedazzled face masks.
