Vegas showgirl spectacle Jubilee to end after 30-plus years

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The showgirls of the long-running Las Vegas spectacle Jubilee are hanging up their elaborate headdresses.

Caesars Entertainment announced Sunday that the show at Bally's Las Vegas casino-hotel would end Feb. 11.

Jubilee got its start in 1981. It's the longest-running show currently on the Strip.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority citing UNLV records says the Folies Bergere showgirl show was the longest running show at 50 years before it ended in 2009.

Caesars has said hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals were used on the costumes when the show debuted 34 years ago.

The show had recently been reimagined to coincide with renovations at Bally's Las Vegas, including a tower of hotel rooms dubbed the Jubilee Tower.

The company says it's considering a new show featuring showgirls.
