Production shows in Vegas are concerned that the city might lose its Entertainment Capital of the World moniker and become the Nightlife Capital of the World.
"The hotels looked at mega-clubs as a golden egg, but those crowds shelling out steep admission prices and highly expensive bottle service, sometimes running upwards of $5,000, don't have any money left over for shows or gaming," Robin Leach reports.
With that, show producers are considering creating an entertainment council "to find creative solutions to the potential problems and see if cooperation can help entertainment, shows and stars deal fairly with the economic impact of nightclubs and their patrons."
"Our town was filled with almost 200,000 electronic dance music fans last weekend, and only a handful of them went to see a Las Vegas show. There were too many empty seats in our theaters."
