Chicago to perform at Island Resort & Casino
3 September 2009
The Island Resort & Casino, Michigan, has announced a series of national acts – Chicago, Brad Garrett, Rodney Atkins and Dierks Bentley – scheduled to headline the Island Showroom, the Upper Peninsula’s hottest entertainment destination.
Chicago – with worldwide sales of more than 120 million records and a remarkable 50 hits domestically – is one of the most successful bands in rock history. The group’s No. 1 hits include: “Make Me Smile,” “Colour My World,” “Feelin' Stronger Every Day,” “If You Leave Me Now” and “You're the Inspiration.” Chicago plays September 4 and 5; tickets are $52.
“The Island Resort & Casino continues to host some of the biggest names in show business,” says General Manager Tom McChesney. “While the facility is sufficient for the incredible energy generated by these acts, it is intimate enough to feel as if each performer is performing individually to our guests.”
The Island Showroom, situated immediately off the gaming floor, seats more than 1,300 guests with unobstructed views of the stage. Tickets for shows (all shows 8 p.m. EST) can be purchased at the casino or by phone with credit card.
Actor/comedian Brad Garrett – well known for his Emmy-awarding winning role on Everybody Loves Raymond – takes the stage September 18 and 19. Garrett’s act, performed only for mature audiences, has been cultivated from years on stage including stints on Star Search and the Tonight Show. Tickets are $30.
In October, country music takes center stage with Rodney Atkins (October 2 and 3) and Dierks Bentley (October 30-31). Atkins’ "It's America," became his fifth No. 1 on the charts in May while Bentley has had seven No. 1 singles since his debut album in 2003. Tickets for Atkins are $32, while Bentley’s show goes for $42.
Owned and operated by the Hannahville Band of the Potawatomi Nation, the Island Resort & Casino drew a great deal of attention last summer with the introduction of Sweetgrass Golf Club, designed by Paul Albanese.
Located in the unspoiled beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Island Resort & Casino and Sweetgrass Golf Club are easily accessible via a trio of airports in Escanaba, Marquette and Green Bay.
