MGM Springfield’s MassMutual Center serves as the home for large-scale live concerts, sporting events and conferences and more.
The $960 million MGM Springfield opened on August 24 in the bustling downtown Springfield neighborhood. The new property offers luxurious accommodations in a historic setting, an impressive culinary program and world-class entertainment through their partnership and management of MassMutual, which can accommodate up to 8,000 guests for reserved-seating events and offers over 100,000 square feet of event space.
Launching her career in the 1960s as part of Sonny & Cher, the iconic star made unprecedented strides in what had long been a male-dominated industry. A worldwide superstar for more than six decades, Cher has sold more than 100 million records and conquered more challenges than a handful of other talents combined - recording, concerts, film, Broadway acting, television and directing. Cher’s three-year 325-show world "Farewell Tour" from 2003 to 2005 played to more than three million fans and became the most successful tour ever by any female artist. She has continued that tradition in a specially designed production called CLASSIC CHER, currently showing for a limited run inside Park Theater at Park MGM Las Vegas.
