First look inside: Resorts World to open in Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Resorts World is hours away from opening its doors, and when it does, it will have an unprecedented lineup of headline residencies.

The 3,000-room resort property will open to the public Thursday at 11 p.m. but WFXR’s sister station KLAS got a first look inside Wednesday morning.

It’s clear the resort plans to make a huge first impression with a list of world-famous acts that include Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. All of them have inked deals to perform at the ultra high-tech 5,000-seat theater.

For the opening weekend party, the resort has enlisted the likes of Paris Hilton, Uncle Kracker and Darius Rucker. Miley Cyrus will perform on the Fourth of July.

The day and night clubs will be hopping as well with the singapore-based Zouk Group and big-time DJs such as Tiesto, Zedd, DJ Snake and others.

Resorts World’s President Scott Sibella has called this entertainment lineup a game-changer for Las Vegas. He says his goal is to be the best in class of everything.
