Bette Midler's longtime stint (until the end of this year) in The Showgirl Must Go On, at Las Vegas' The Colosseum at Caesars Palace (previously home to Celine Dion's A New Day five-year run) includes sound reinforcement provided by Montreal-based Solotech, including a Meyer Sound system. Featuring a total of 132 costume changes and framed by curtains created from 75,000 individually painted gold coins, the show features a 13-piece band, 20 backup dances and a backdrop a la Broadway-style theater. The Colosseum's new system allows for a seamless transition for its three other resident performers (Elton John, Cher and Jerry Seinfeld). Venue personnel involved in the redesign include head of audio Dave Torti and tech director Bob Sandon; Midler is mixed by longtime FOH engineer David Morgan.
