Within a few hours of opening its doors today, the public has purchased every ticket to Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction on June 23-25, 2016, at Mohegan Sun.  In addition, consignments for The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions® are sold out and Barrett-Jackson set an attendance record for any event at Mohegan Sun.

This will be absolutely the best collector car event in the Northeast in 2016.”

Prophets Of Rage To Perform Live At Mohegan Sun

Rockers will be in the Arena on August 28th

UNCASVILLE, CT (June 20, 2016) – Assembling as a politically-charged response to 2016’s tumultuous election year, the newly-formed Prophets Of Rage, features Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord.  Best described by Morello as an “elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year BS,” the group combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.  The band has said that “dangerous times demand dangerous songs” and has fans using #MakeAmericaRAGEAgain and #TakeThePowerBack to engage across social media.  In what the LA Times headlined simply as “Revolutionary,” the band’s mission is clear, promising “No Sleep till Cleveland,” the home of the 2016 Republican National Convention this July, where they have a planned performance on July 19th.  They will then make their way to Connecticut for a live performance in Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, August 28th at 7:00pm with special guests AWOLNATION.

Tickets are $69.00, $49.00 & $18.00 and go on sale Wednesday, June 22nd at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Thursday, June 23rd, subject to availability.

Following two sold-out shows at The Whisky and The Hollywood Palladium that had thousands of hopeful fans lined up in Los Angeles, and a sold-out show in Brooklyn at Warsaw Ballroom, the group announced a national North American tour. The MAKE AMERICA RAGE AGAIN TOUR, will kick off in Cleveland, OH on July 19th, in tandem with the Republican National Convention. From there the tour will include stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Atlanta before concluding in San Diego, mere weeks before 2016 Election Day. A portion of the proceeds from each show will benefit a local homeless charity.
