Final Thoughts

Other Las Vegas performers are yet to confirm their Las Vegas residency. One such figure is Celine Dion, who had a residency at Caesars Palace for over 16 years. She had several shows scheduled for November 2021 – February 2022, but all were canceled due to medical issues, including severe muscle spasms. The show is yet to return, and it is not expected till 2024 at the earliest.

Other impeccable shows also came to an end, including John Legend ‘Love in Las Vegas’ at Zappos Theatre in Planet Hollywood (from April – October 29th 2022), as well as the residency of Lionel Richie at Wynn Las Vegas and Aerosmith at Park MGM both of which ended in 2022.

Backstreet Boys, on the other hand, are set to return to their Las Vegas residency in Planet Hollywood after their DNA World Tour ends in 2023.
