Celebrating its golden anniversary this year, thanks to its prominence as a boxing venue, Caesars Palace is a well-known casino and hotel complex in Las Vegas, Nevada. As the flagship resort of Caesars Entertainment, its constant high profile and air of luxury means it has been home to some equally high-profile celebrities over the years. Here are just a few of them.
The final singer in this list is the Canadian ballad singer most famous for My Heart Will Go On from the movie Titanic. She too has performed at The Atrium and stayed as a guest on multiple occasions. Her major appearance at the Colosseum in 2002 went down in history as the most successful residency show anywhere in the world. A residency show is a series of concerts that take place at a single venue with the performer staying as a guest.
The veteran British singer, famous for such iconic songs as Candle in the Wind, Your Song and a number of 70s classics, has stayed at Caesars Palace many times. He is also one of the most accomplished performers to have played at the Colosseum, the central venue where some of the resort’s biggest events have taken place – including the iconic boxing nights. He too appeared at multiple residency shows, being amongst Caesars Palace’ most successful.
Another of music’s greatest icons, Liberace was history’s greatest performer – not just a singer, but a piano player and actor. For over two decades, he was the highest paid entertainer in the world. It is no great surprise that he was one of CP’s most famous patrons, appearing at a number of residency shows and stopping at the hotel on multiple occasions during tours.
President of the USA between 2009 and 2016 inspired interest in politics of the younger generation like no other politician before him in American history. Using social media and technology to reach out to groups who usually feel ignored, Obama has always been a down to earth sort of a president. During his tour across the country while on campaign in both 2008 and for re-election in 2012, he is known to have stayed at the Marc Antony and Cleopatra suite.
The famous British chef stayed at Caesars Palace several times during his American version of Hell’s Kitchen, the reality show designed to find the new chefs of the future. Caesars Palace is now home to the only authentic British restaurant in Las Vegas, and that restaurant bears his name. As part of the contractual obligations, Ramsay must visit the restaurant at least once a year – and that includes staying over.
Despite a rather short-lived and public relationship with actor Ben Affleck, Lopez eventually found love with singer songwriter Marc Antony. The pair renewed their vows in 2010 but split the following year, divorcing in 2014. As both are musicians, it was inevitable that they would tour together and they did just that – appearing at the Colosseum several times during their marriage.
