Sports rebels find a home at Cleo’s Barge

Jan 9, 2018 3:00 AM

Caesars Palace and its Cleopatra’s Barge is continuing its non-conventional entertainment offerings with a new production called Renegades. Producers say it’s a new interactive concept allowing fans to get up-close and personal with “sports rebels” like Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, Terrell Owens and others.

Comedian Martin Montana serves as the host for the show, slated to open in the iconic lounge space on Jan. 25.

The Renegades line-up will rotate the starring athletes every few months with a format that will allow the retired athletes to recount stories from their playing days and beyond. A question and answer session will follow each show, according to the producer.

Canseco, a two-time World Series champ and controversial best-selling author, is batting lead off in the new entertainment concept.

“You think you know these athletes’ stories, but trust me, you have no idea,” co-producer Rich Lenkov said in a statement. “Renegades will offer the most unique entertainment experience on the Strip, where some of the most infamous names in sports will take you through the highs and lows of their careers in an intimate setting."
