Atlantic City, N.J. (PRESS RELEASE) -- Legend has it, Bally’s Atlantic City and the award-winning Legends in Concert series have began a multi-year and multi-dimensional partnership. The resort destination will fully immerse itself in the Legends in Concert theme, designed to extend each fan’s experience even after the curtain closes.
Guests can already see the metamorphosis that has taken place with Bally’s newly renovated Legends in Concert Theater (formerly the Palace Theater), which includes all new seats, more comfortable booths and cocktail tables. Several memorabilia walls featuring images and artifacts of America’s favorite superstars, sourced from the performers, families and estates of the superstars Legends pays tribute to, along with Legends in Concert memorabilia from its nearly 30 year long history will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Additionally, Bally’s will soon begin celebrating Legends in Concert's new long-term home by extending their special entertainment onto the casino floor with the debut of a “Dealer-tainer” themed gaming pit, including wardrobes furnished via Legends in Concert’s extensive costume department. Other Bally’s personnel, including theater staff, front desk employees and food service wait staff, will periodically appear in costume.
