When will big-name stars return to Southern California casinos after coronavirus? Alex Groves, Daily Breeze · October 28, 2020 at 9:59 pm Together, J Balvin, Pitbull, Mary J. Blige, Ke$ha and the Hollywood Vampires sound like they should be on a poster for a festival lineup somewhere. In 2019, they were among the big-name stars who played Southern California’s casino showrooms. However, in 2020, nearly all plans for an encore were dashed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Many of Southern California’s tribally-owned casinos with entertainment venues, including Casino Pauma; Fantasy Springs Resort Casino; Harrah’s Resort Southern California; Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa; Pechanga Resort & Casino; and Spotlight 29 Casino have postponed or canceled their large-scale entertainment events in 2020 as a result of the pandemic.
