Singapore Sands plans big show

Marina Bay resort lining up entertainment for 2009

SINGAPORE — Having won the bidding for Singapore’s first $3.6 billion casino resort last month, dark horse Las Vegas Sands is lining up entertainment for 2009.

Vegas-based spokesman Ron Reese said there probably will be one permanent show in the proposed Marina Bay Sands resort.

“Broadly speaking, we’re looking at potentially a Broadway-type production, or perhaps a Bollywood musical. We’re keeping our options open,” Reese said. Awards shows, like MTV Asia or Bollywood, also are a possibility, he added.

Sands was the surprise winner in a four-horse race that had analysts backing MGM Mirage/CapitaLand and Harrah’s Entertainment/Keppel Land.

Las Vegas Sands was the only hopeful not to play the entertainment card during the bidding, focusing more on meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.
