Promenade Spiegelworld’s Upcoming Las Vegas Performance, ‘DiscoShow,’ at LINQ Promenade

Spiegelworld, the producer of the renowned show “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace, has declared that the construction of the theater for its next innovative Las Vegas Strip production is underway. Titled “DiscoShow”, it is slated to premiere in the summer of 2024 at the LINQ, in a sportsbook that has been dormant since 2014. Furthermore, its theater, which is called Glitterloft, will also include bars and a diner.

“DiscoShow” is inspired by the 1979 “Disco Demolition Night” event orchestrated by Chicago rock radio announcer Steve Dahl. He urged rock fans to gather at Comiskey Park to add their disco vinyl records to a pile that he would detonate between White Sox games.

Subsequently, thousands of people invaded the field and a riot occurred, causing damage to the field and inspiring a negative sentiment towards dance music. It was only later that the true homophobic and racist motivations behind the event were acknowledged.

“Over 40 years ago, conservative factions of the sporting world swung baseball bats at disco,” said Spiegelworld founder Ross Mollison, who was the first to take a sledgehammer to the walls of the former Imperial Palace sportsbook. “Ironically, today disco is fighting back to make way for an exhilarating celebration of the music and its joyfully defiant legacy.”

The show’s creative team includes acclaimed director and choreographer Steven Hoggett (“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” in London). As described in the Spiegelworld press release, “the audience will be welcomed to join the characters who were there at the very start of disco; explore their lives, the streets, and the clubs; and be encouraged to let go and enjoy the music and the dancefloor.”

“DiscoShow” is the third of the three new entertainment experiences that Spiegelworld has agreed to produce as a part of its agreement with Caesars Entertainment. The first one is “Hook” which is scheduled to open in 2024 on the grounds of the historic Warner Theatre in Atlantic City. Following “DiscoWorld”, another Spiegelworld show and restaurant will debut at Caesars Palace New Orleans.

According to Spiegelworld, tickets for “DiscoShow” will be available for purchase “in the next few months.”
