Friday, March 4th, 2016

UNCASVILLE, CT (March 4, 2016) – Four-time Grammy Award winner and American Idol judge Keith Urban will bring his “ripCORD World Tour 2016” to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville on Friday, November 18th at 7:30pm with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris.

Tickets are $95.00 & $75.00 and go on sale Friday, March 11th 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 Saturday, March 12th, subject to availability.

“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” said Urban.  “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from ripCORD, all new production, new cities where we’ve never played…and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!”

Brett Eldredge’s current single, “Drunk On Your Love” is the second single from his recently released sophomore album, Illinois. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard top 200 Chart and has already produced the #1 single “Lose My Mind.” The 2014 CMA New Artist of the Year co-wrote and co-produced every song on the 12 set disc, which follows on the heels of his 2013 debut album Bring You Back.

Twenty-five year-old Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself in Nashville’s music community with songwriting and vocal stylings that reflect her Country, Folk and Pop influences, with Rolling Stone Country touting her “a stellar solo artist in her own right.”  Songs from her self-titled EP have been critically received and just two weeks after its release surpassed 5.5 million streams, with 3 songs hitting Spotify’s US and Global “Viral 50″ chart, zipping to #1 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker Album Chart. Her first single, “My Church,” has been released to Country radio and is already in the Top 15.

Urban’s ‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ takes place on the heels of his soon to be released eighth studio album release of the same name, which has already produced two singles – his Grammy nominated, #1 song, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and its second single “Break On Me,” which just became Urban’s 20th #1 song. The album will be the follow-up to Urban’s groundbreaking release FUSE, his fourth #1 album, marking the first time in history that a male Country artist had debuted atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today.

Kenny Chesney Spreads The Love

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Country superstar returns to Mohegan Sun Arena for back-to-back nights in May

UNCASVILLE, CT (February 9, 2016) – After breaking nine attendance records – many his own – and selling in excess of 1.3 million tickets on The Big Revival Tour, Kenny Chesney wanted to harness the energy of last year’s audiences. This 2016 tour is named Spread the Love to reflect the No Shoes Nation’s passion for living life and loving music and Mohegan Sun Arena is primed to host back-to-back shows, beginning with a Friday, May 13th concert beginning at 7:30pm. Chesney will take the stage again the following evening, on Saturday, May 14th. Special guests for both shows will be ACM “Vocal Group of the Year” nominees, Old Dominion.

Tickets are $125.00 & $95.00 and go on sale Friday, February 12th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  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 starting Saturday, February 13th, subject to availability.
Old Dominion are becoming Nashville’s band of songwriters on the verge of their very first #1 with “Break Up With Him.” In addition to penning Chesney’s three-week #1 “Save It For A Rainy Day,” members of the good-vibe group of musicians have written chart-toppers for Blake Shelton (“Sangria”), The Band Perry (“Better Dig Two”), Tyler Farr (“Guy Walks Into A Bar”) and Dierks Bentley (“Say You Do”).

“There is nothing like the energy of a stadium show,” Chesney said. “Old Dominion kicked the whole summer off last year with the best vibe. If we’re talking about Spread the Love, those guys are all about it. If there’s anything I want to see this summer, it’s that attitude that really defines what’s going on.”

“Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham,” The Dallas Morning News deemed Chesney this summer – and the man hailed as “The King of the Road” takes his shows very seriously. “After last year, we’ve got a bar to clear, but I am fired up… and missing the fans already. There are a bunch more dates coming, but let’s get the first wave of major stadium shows on the calendar right now!”
