Bill O’Reilly & Glenn Beck’s Bold & Fresh Tour To Stop At Mohegan Sun

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Don’t miss out on the rare opportunity to see Fox News Channel’s popular hosts live on stage

Television personalities Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck are coming out from behind their desks and going on tour this fall, stopping at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, October 30th at 8:00pm.  You’ll hear from Bill, you’ll hear from Glenn, and then… they’ll take the stage together. What happens then? No one really knows, but one thing is for sure—you’ll want to see it with your very own eyes.

Tickets are $130.00, $95.00, $65.00 and $50.00 and go on sale Friday, September 3rd at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log onto ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge by Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, September 4th, subject to availability.

Bill O’Reilly is the godfather of “no spin” and in-your-face television. For years he’s been the centerpiece of the Fox News lineup with his unmistakable style and unflinching commitment to truth as he sees it. In Bill’s world, brutal honesty beats hypocrisy every time. And you know how they say that some men’s “bark” is worse than their “bite?” With Bill… yeah, not so much. As Bill puts it, “My teeth are in good shape.”

Glenn Beck is the new kid on the block, the fastest rising star in cable news. Through humor, raw emotion and the tenacity of a pit bull, Glenn has become the new voice of conservative America. Steeped in the teaching of our forefathers, Glenn wears his heart on his sleeve, and no matter what he says—whether it’s about politics or pop culture—you can bet he’s got the facts to back it up. He’s less a TV host and more like, say… a force of nature. “There is really no better way to end the year than by joining Bill on stage,” says Glenn. “Wait…should I be worried?”

Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 4th best venue by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Hilarious comedian performs in the Arena on Saturday, November 6th

Dane Cook, one of today’s most prolific stand-up comedians, will return to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, November 6th at 8:00pm. 

Tickets are $100.00, $75.00 and $50.00 and go on sale Friday, August 20th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets may also be purchased at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, August 21st, subject to availability.

Cook’s numerous film and television projects include starring roles in Touchstone’s Dan in Real Life (with Steve Carell), Lionsgate’s romantic comedy, Good Luck Chuck (with Jessica Alba), MGM’s thriller, Mr. Brooks (with Kevin Costner, Demi Moore and William Hurt), and most recently My Best Friend’s Girl (with Kate Hudson and Alec Baldwin), through his production company, SUperFInger Entertainment.

Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay and trenchant observations about human behavior, Cook’s unique brand of stand-up and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. His debut CD/DVD release, Harmful If Swallowed, appeared on eight different Billboard charts and is certified platinum. A few years later, he catapulted to media headlines when his sophomore comedy CDx2/DVD, Retaliation, debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, hitting double platinum, making him the highest charting comedian in twenty-nine years, and earning him a place alongside best-selling comedy vets Bill Cosby, George Carlin and Steve Martin.

In 2008, Cook again proved his star power in front of a combined live crowd of 70,000 people with two highly rated specials, Vicious Circle (for HBO) and Rough Around the Edges (for Comedy Central).  Last year, Cook teamed up again with Comedy Central with his new special, ISolated Incident –his most ambitious album and special to date, taped in an intimate comedy club setting rather than a arena. The album found Cook covering new kinds of material, from the personal to the political and it debuted commercial-free on Comedy Central in May 2009 and was also shot in one single, edit-free take from beginning to end.
