The Casino File: ‘Legends in Concert’ headed to Tropicana Atlantic City; Live! Philly opens doors to everyone

The Trop is the second AyCee gaming hall to have a public entertainment presentation on its books.

Almost a year since its entertainment programming was ended by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tropicana Atlantic City has announced it has booked the Legends in Concert musical mimic-fest for a summertime run.

The revue, which has been an Atlantic City staple for more than two decades, debuts July 21 and runs through Sept. 6. The show will feature lookalike-and-sound-alike performers paying tribute to Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga and Michael Buble.

With the announcement, the Trop becomes the second AyCee property to get back on the show biz wagon. Hard Rock Hotel Casino Atlantic City brought a holiday-themed version of the Motown-themed Motor City Live to its Sound Waves theater in December. It recently revived the non-Yule version, which is runs on a two-shows-every-Saturday schedule through Memorial Day weekend.

Legends show times are 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, 9 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Sunday. Matinee performances are expected to be added on to-be-determined weekends. Admission is $52.50 (plus service fees) for adults and $22.50 (plus fees) for kids 3-16. For tickets and info, click here.

Everyone welcome at Live! Philadelphia

Admission to the new Live! Philadelphia Casino Hotel is now open to anyone over the age of 21.

Since Jan. 19, the $700 million adult playground in South Philadelphia’s Stadium District had only been admitting Rewards Card holders who made reservations for their visits. Now, it’s business as usual.

To celebrate, the casino is offering $100,000 in free play and prizes through Feb. 11.
