Caesars Entertainment is rolling out the red carpet for its summer lineup in Atlantic City.
Caesars Atlantic City, Bally's Atlantic City, Harrah's Resort and Showboat Casino-Hotel are bringing in an abundance of shows while also hosting two premier festivals.
“This is a very important summer for not only Caesars Entertainment, but for all of Atlantic City, and we're poised to deliver with one of the strongest line-ups the region has ever seen," said Don Marrandino, Eastern Division President of Caesars Entertainment. "We're showcasing our top-notch talent with Vegas-style entertainment like the Blue Man Group, iconic acts like Donny and Marie, an unprecedented residencies from Mary J. Blige and Pauly D., hit musical productions like Rock of Ages, and superstars that transcend all genres like Madonna and Jamie Foxx.”
The party starts Memorial Day Weekend when The Wailers perform at Sammy's Beach Bar at Bally's on May 25.
The House of Blues at Showboat will be a busy place for music lovers that weekend, too. Alternative rock band Garbage will take the stage Friday, May 25, while country stars Big & Rich headline on Saturday, May 26. Some people may remember John Rich as a winner of Donald Trump's NBC reality TV show "Celebrity Apprentice." The HOB Party Pit will be rocking just as hard as Alien Ant Farm comes to town to give fans a free concert Sunday, May 27.
The weekend will end with a day-long bash Sunday, May 27, at The Pool After Dark at Harrah's, where reality TV star Kim Kardashian will be in attendance.
Following a full lineup of rockers, Mary J. Blige will bring a little R&B to the party for a mini-residency at the Circus Maximus Theater. She will put on four shows in Atlantic City to celebrate Independence Day: June 29, June 30, July 3 and July 4.
For a little comic relief, Jamie Foxx is coming to Atlantic City to put on two comedy shows at the Circus Maximus July 5 and July 6. The singer/actor/comedian, who also is an Oscar winner for his leading performance in "Ray," is also slated to stop by The Pool July 6, and may even offer some tunes, including his big hit "Blame It (On the Alcohol)."
Comedian Sarah Silverman, who is never afraid to tell it like it is, will follow Foxx's act July 7 at Circus Maximus.
Film lovers will unite at the 3rd annual Tribeca Film Festival Cinema Series every Friday and Saturday in July starting July 6. A free event, guests can get a sneak peek at the year's upcoming movies from their spot on the sand. A movie screen will be set up on the beach in front of Caesars and movies will begin at sundown.
If a classic, colorful, Las Vegas-style show is what you're looking for, The Blue Man Group will be performing at Circus Maximus July 13 through 20, and Donny & Marie Osmond will bring their charming duets to the stage July 31 through Aug. 4.
Foodies won't be ignored either, as the Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival will take place July 26 through 29. Guests can expect to see celebrity chefs such as Tyler Florence, Buddy Valastro, Andrew Zimmern, Anne Burrell, Robert Irvine and Nadia G.
For anyone looking for a taste of Broadway, "Rock of Ages" will bring the '80s-centered musical to CaesarsAug. 14 through Sept. 2.
Who better to close out the summer lineup than pop superstar Madonna? She'll be bringing her world tour to Atlantic City for an unforgettable performance Sept. 15 at Boardwalk Hall.
