Miranda Lambert Set To Rock Mohegan Sun Arena

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Live at Mohegan Sun on Wednesday, June 8th. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 5th

Twenty-five year old Country sensation Miranda Lambert, with special guests Justin Moore &  Josh Kelley, will perform at Mohegan Sun Arena on Wednesday, June 8th at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $60.00 and $40.00 and go on sale Saturday, March 5th 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 will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Sunday, March 6th, subject to availability.

In her most successful single to date, “Gunpowder” and “Lead,” Lambert declared that some little girls are made less of sugar and spice than more combustible substances. And the title track of her 2005 platinum debut, Kerosene, established her in the Country music firmament as a figuratively and maybe even literally incendiary personality.
Lambert is an artist of many complementary qualities that only appear on the surface to be contradictions. You can even see it in some of the magazine covers she’s appeared on. She was recently the focus of her first cover story in Country Weekly, after previously fronting an issue of No Depression, a publication usually devoted only to non-mainstream, critically acclaimed, Alt-Country singer/songwriters. She’s equally at home on the cover of First, a women’s magazine (Miranda’s Bliss Tips!), and Garden & Gun (which trumpeted her as “The New Loretta Lynn”). People named her one of 2009′s “100 Most Beautiful People”… just a year after Esquire named her “Terrifying Woman of the Year.”
