    It could be that those groups were not actually The Platters, The Coasters and The Marvelettes after all and were forced to cancel. There are a lot of phony tribute acts going around calling themselves by those names but in order to perform by law, at least one original member of the group has to be in it for them to legally call themselves that group name and advertise themselves as such to the public.

    Here is a website with some information on how these phony acts operate:

    And if you scroll down the page, the paragraph talking about the fake Coasters is titled "Bogus (promotor: Larry Marshak, with Early Clover et al)"

    That could be the issue, but who knows. They did have a problem
    when the other configuration was working the Sahara.
    This version has been at RIO for a while now, so it could be other
    'new' issues in re to different acts coming to Crown Theater.
    Rememeber...there's a rumor that Legends In Concert will end their
    stay at Harrah's the end of September and move into Crown Theater.
    You could call the RIO and ask...1.888.746.7482 but if you get a reason,
    I wouldn't take it too seriously.

    I read something about the show being dark until September 1st so maybe they are just taking a vacation.
