Hollywood Taking Over Bally’s in Atlantic City
Can you imagine Tina Turner, Justin Timberlake, and The Blues Brothers all in the same place? Can you imagine them sitting across from you dealing some cards to you? How is this possible? Bally’s in Atlantic City is embarking on creating a Hollywood vibe for their casino that will let you see legends all over their casino, and hopefully create one of the more unique experiences on the Boardwalk.
From modern stars like Madonna and Adele, to legends like Whitney and Elvis, Bally’s is partnering with the Legends in Concert show to give the casino a more exciting, Hollywood-like vibe by using celebrity lookalikes. These talented people will strut their unique talents throughout the casino – from the 8 shows they perform in weekly in the Legends In Concert Theater at the casino, to showing their dealer skills in The Party Pit which will open May 11th.
So picture if you can Ray Charles coming out of nowhere and singing next you, Elvis dealing you a hand of poker, or being greeted by Tina Turner as you enter Bally’s. This formula has worked in Las Vegas, and with revenues down again last month in A.C., the hope here is that the buzz this should create will bring more people into Bally’s.
The current roster of talent on the Legends in Concert at Bally’s includes tributes to The Blues Brothers, Liza Minelli, Elvis, Tina and Ray Charles. Starting May 24th, the lineup will shift to salute Justin Timberlake, Adele and Whitney Houston (along with Elvis). The Legends in Concert schedule is:
8PM Show on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday
3PM Show on Wednesday
7:30PM and 10PM Show on Saturday
Tickets available through Ticketmaster and the Theater Box office on days of shows.
