The final curtain for the Beatles-themed show, which brought together Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for public appearances throughout its 18-year run, will also fall in July.

Hard Rock International announced Wednesday that more than 3,000 employees would be laid off and that it expects to pay $80 million in severance payments.

The Culinary Workers Union, which has represented about 1,700 Mirage employees since it opened, said in a statement that the contract it won last year guarantees laid-off workers will receive $2,000 for each year of service.

The contract also gives them the opportunity to be called back to work and retain their seniority when the hotel reopens.

“Culinary Union will continue to ensure that workers are protected and focused on the future of the property,” the statement said.

The Mirage became the first property on the Strip to be managed by a Native American tribe in 2022, after Hard Rock International, which is owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, purchased it from MGM Resorts in an all-cash deal worth nearly $1.1 billion.
