A Sold-Out Crowd Experienced One of Caesars Entertainment’s Most Iconic Resident Artists, Celine Dion, Perform an Extended Set

 

LAS VEGASJune, 2018 — Legendary icon and Las Vegas resident performer Celine Dion launched her 22-city tour across the Asian-Pacific region with a spectacular two-hour, sold out performance inside the Tokyo Dome two nights ago. The Celine Dion Live 2018 Tour Tokyo performance was presented by Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR), a global leader in the gaming, hospitality, MICE and live entertainment industries.

The tour is the latest milestone in a 15-year history of collaboration and partnership between Caesars Entertainment and Celine Dion, who began her first residency “A New Day…” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in 2003. Since that time, Celine has performed over 1,000 shows to over four million fans at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and will continue to add to this number with her current residency, “Celine.”  While her Las Vegas residency performances usually run for 90 minutes, last night’s show lasted for approximately two hours.

Caesars Entertainment is the global leader in creating world-class live entertainment experiences and we are delighted that we helped bring Celine Dion back to Japan for the first time in 12 years,” said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment. “Live Entertainment has been key to our success as the preeminent Integrated Resort (IR) operator. With the IR legislation reaching its final stages, we hope this concert demonstrates our commitment to developing meaningful partnerships in Japan.

Caesars Entertainment executives Steven Tight, President of International Development, Jan Jones Blackhurst, Executive Vice President of Government Relations & Corporate Responsibility,  William Shen, Senior Vice President & Managing Director of Korea & Japan, and members of Caesars’ Japan Advisory Council were in Tokyo for the event.

I am so pleased that Caesars Entertainment was able to be part of this special performance,” said Steve Tight, President of International Development. “Entertainment for the whole family is at the core of Caesars Entertainment, and it was a delight to see such a wide range of people enjoying Celine’s concert. Shows like this take place at Caesars Entertainment Integrated Resorts every day, so I hope this concert gave the audience a real taste of the type of entertainment you can expect at a Japanese Entertainment Resort.

Caesars Entertainment’s vision is to build a world-class Integrated Resort which would bring world-class entertainment to Japanese audiences while also showcasing Japanese culture and entertainment to visitors from all over the world.

An alleged lottery corruption scam is snowballing into a big social media controversy in China. The main allegation is that RMB136 billion (US$19.5 billion) has been eaten up by corrupt lottery administrators.

It must be remembered that there has been “temporary” ban on online lottery in China for several year.

The latest controversy revolves around the accusation that it is almost impossible for ordinary lottery punters to win a major prize. Following the allegation, four former senior Welfare Lottery officials, led by disgraced former Welfare Lottery director Wang Suying, admitted that there was systemic corruption in the sector.

Government officially rejected the quantum of corruption. But its lack of transparency is making the matters only worse. The government refused to provide the details of losses on grounds that it would be inconvenient.

Publically available figures date back to 2012 and are contained in a National Audit Office report in 2015, which disclosed that corrupt lottery officials had stolen or misused almost RMB17 billion between January 2012 and October 2014.

Part of those losses was in the online sector, where administrators allegedly failed to officially report all online sales, pocketing the balance and triggering the long-running “temporary” suspension of online sales by the government which remains in force at present – three years on.
