What would you do for a million bucks? Well, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert turned down a cool mil to perform for ONE weekend in Las Vegas. According to TMZ, Blake and Miranda were offered $1-million to play three shows at The Colosseum at Caesars back in February — but when the couple countered at $1.25 million, the arena’s operator AEG balked.
The invitation came as Celine Dion recently announced she was postponing her residency at the Colosseum until March … while she cares for her ailing husband (he’s got cancer). The decline is seen as a significant sign that Caesars Palace might have a harder time than expected lining up replacements for Dion while she’s on hiatus – and the clock is ticking.
The venue has about 4,300 seats that will go empty if AEG and Caesars can’t line up new talent. Maybe Miranda and Blake’s asking price isn’t so outrageous after all?
