Tue, Feb 18th 2020 12:05 pm

Fallsview Casino Resort has announced a sizzling spring lineup at the brand-new, state-of-the-art Entertainment Centre, led by Kesha and Brad Paisley.

The new, 5,000 seat, state-of-the-art Entertainment Centre will be operated by Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort and Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment. This new space allows Fallsview Casino Resort to offer more than 300 shows per year in conjunction with the Avalon Theatre. With no seat over 150 feet from the stage, Fallsview continues to offer top entertainment with an intimate atmosphere.

"This spring brings incredible acts to Fallsview Casino's Entertainment Centre. From country artists Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, comedian Larry the Cable Guy, classic rockers ZZ Top with special guest Cheap Trick, to pop artist Kesha and many more, this lineup brings something for everyone," says Richard Taylor, president of Niagara Casinos.

Construction on this theater began in the fall of 2017, with the goal of making Niagara Falls the entertainment destination of choice. With the finishing touches almost complete, this long-awaited Entertainment Centre will host its first performers this April.

The Entertainment Centre is an all-ages venue (under 12 with an adult) located in the Fallsview tourist district directly across from Fallsview Casino Resort. It is easily accessible by an indoor walkway.

"Our new theater is a welcomed addition to our portfolio of world-class venues and will be the Canadian home for top name artists and events. As one of the leading producers of live entertainment today, MGE is excited to export what we do best, including a powerhouse lineup starting in April,” said Tom Cantone, president of MGE Entertainment Worldwide.

Selected by Ontario Lottery and Gaming, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment has been operating in Niagara since June 2019. With more than two decades of experience creating top entertainment destinations, MGE focuses on developing “the ultimate customer experience.”

A press release said, “Collaborating with the OLG, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, Niagara Casinos and various stakeholders, this was truly a community effort that will bring energy and excitement to downtown Niagara Falls.

"This will be a world-class facility that performers will want to perform at and audiences will want to experience", said Niagara Falls, Ontario, Mayor Jim Diodati. "With superior sound, sightlines and designs to make the experience memorable, we anticipate more than 1 million additional visitors to our city to see acts and performances here. This means more good jobs are coming to our community, and that restaurants and attractions will be busier as well. To say we are excited would be an understatement!"

"For decades, the partnership between the OLG and Niagara Casinos has been collaborative and innovative. Joining forces with Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment continues to take the entertainment industry to the next level in Niagara," said Lori Sullivan, OLG's chief operating officer. "There is a wealth of knowledge within these partnerships, and we look forward to the new Entertainment Centre seeing great success."
