Casino Rama announces 22 shows to kick off entertainment centre reopening

With 22 shows starting early next year

After a nearly 2 years hiatus, Casino Rama is set to reopen its world-class entertainment centre with a huge lineup of shows beginning in January 2022.

Casino Rama has been slowly reopening parts of its business over the last year, but the inclusion of the entertainment centre will mean every part of the resort, from the hotel and spas to the gaming floor, will now be open to the public.

Ice Cube (September 2)

One of the most important figures in rap history, Ice Cube will be hitting the Casino Rama stage to bust out his signature style and rhymes.

Casino Rama wants to ensure the safest reopening possible so the standard safety protocols such as masking, sanitizing, and proof of vaccination (14 days prior to entry) will all be in place.

“We’re really proud of the lineup, it really crosses the spectrum. We’re very excited,” said Rob Mitchell, Director of Communications and Public Affairs for Gateway Casinos. “This is also an opportunity to bring back a lot of staff. It’s a pretty complicated business running the entertainment centre, over 200 people, so they’re all coming back. Stagehands, lighting crew, sound technicians, right on through to the box office, food & beverage, and the lobby.”
