DescriptionEdit

The theater was announced in July 2015,[2] as part of the mass redevelopment of the aging Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.[3] Spearheaded by MGM Resorts International and AEG,[4] construction began November 2, 2015 on the "MGM Resorts Theater"[5] (later known as the "MCR Concert Hall" before settling on its current name)[6] at the site of the former Lance Burton Theatre. After one year of construction, the $90 million theatre opened on December 17, 2016, with a concert by Stevie Nicks.[7]

The theater boasts a capacity of 6,400 (5,200 for residency shows),[8] making it the second largest theater on the Strip behind the Zappos Theater.

The venue is 150,000 square feet with a 135'x40' stage and 7,500 square foot proscenium arch.[9] The theatre was designed ensuring the back row was only 145 feet from the stage. It also includes an 80'x40' 4K-LED screen.[10]

In October 2021, the theater was renamed "Dolby Live" as part of a naming rights agreement with Dolby. As part of the agreement, the theater's sound system was upgraded to use Dolby Atmos technology.[11]
