Tait Towers vamps up the Colosseum
Tait Towers –the leader in innovative design and quality staging for the touring entertainment industry — is responsible for the stage renovation and transformation in the 4100-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The 2008 music season kicks off February 20th with Bette Midler’s ”˜The Showgirl Must Go On’ and will be followed by legendary hit maker Cher and Caesars Palace alum, Elton John.
The stage enhancements provided by Tait Towers to The Colosseum are the result of the unique relationship Tait enjoys with their A-List clients, including Bette Midler, Cher and Elton John. All three iconic performers expressed confidence in Tait Towers’ abilities when meeting with Caesars Palace executives. As a result, The Colosseum contacted Tait directly and formalized an agreement to design, fabricate and install staging to accommodate the new acts for 2008. In this way, Tait Towers was able to act as a bridge between their current clients and Caesars.
