The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has reopened after being closed for two months. The Colosseum’s floor was reconfigured via an automated lift system to allow more flexibility (namely, general-admission standing room in front of the stage when desirable, but seats when not). In addition, more rows of VIP seating were added, along with upgraded video screens and more bars. The number of seats overall dropped to 4,450 from 4,500, but room was created for 380 general-admission concertgoers on the floor. Keith Urban christened the relaunch of the arena, which opened in 2003 for Celine Dion’s first residency.
