Several final days in Las Vegas

7 March 2024


Tropicana Las Vegas will soon be demolished to make room for the new baseball stadium and more. Plus, the Mirage Volcano will soon be just a memory, but the timing is a bit murky. While this is happening, U2's Vegas residency has come to an end.

If you want to be a part of the final days of the Tropicana Vegas Hotel you better get a move on. Those looking for souvenirs from the casino, whether a chip or a deck of cards, have only days to do so. The official last day of operation for the resort is being reported as April 2nd, just two days short of the resorts 67th anniversary. Most believe the removal of the building will follow the newest of Las Vegas traditions: implosion. Nine out of the 35 acres will be designated for the Athletics, who plan to erect a 33,000-seat stadium on the site. But will there be a new Tropicana Las Vegas?

Final Days of the Mirage Volcano
We all know that the days of the Mirage Hotel Volcano attraction are numbered. Still, it will be good when they turn the show back on tomorrow, Friday March 1st. According to the resort, the famous Strip attraction will operate nightly from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. with shows on the hour. The Las Vegas volcano was shut down for the Grand Prix in November, and again in February while Paramount used the space for the interactive Mountain during Super Bowl week. Hard Rock International now owns and operators of the Mirage, but they have plans to tear down the Mirage Volcano show.

Final Days of U2 Las Vegas Residency
It seems like just yesterday that the U2 Vegas residency opened the new venue. Now here we are, just five months and 40 shows later, talking about them leaving town. Sort of sad, really. The band’s UV Achtung Baby Live concert series is officially closing, with the final performances scheduled for March 1st and 2nd. Originally, the U2 Vegas residency was slated for a mere 25 shows. However, demand for the legendary band was just too much, and they just kept selling out shows.
