Live at Mohegan Sun August 5th; Tickets go on sale May 12th

UNCASVILLE, CT (May 2, 2017) – Linkin Park announced their One More Light World Tour today via Genius HERE, a first for both the genre-defying band and the lyric annotation platform. Produced by Live Nation, the One More Light World Tour with special guest, Machine Gun Kelly, will be live at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, August 5th at 6:45pm.

Linkin Park will release their highly anticipated seventh studio album, One More Light, May 19th via Warner Bros. Records. The band’s risky creative choices – swinging wildly from song to song, album to album – are a hallmark of their career, and One More Light is no exception.  Their most personal to date, the album is built on the stories of six voices coming clean about their lives and struggles, as if it were the first time.  OML isn’t bigger, louder, or more avant-garde, it’s more human.

The One More Light World Tour set list will combine the biggest hits of Linkin’s Park expansive career, as well as material from the new album, with all the intense high energy and passion the band is known for. “Our fans know how much love we put into our live show,” says guitarist, Brad Delson. “They know how much we enjoy the connection when we play a fan favorite on stage. The emotional and sonic content of this new batch of songs is going to bring a whole new dimension to the show.”

Every single full priced ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the One More Light album ($10.99 value)

Special guest on the tour is EST 19XX / Bad Boy / Interscope recording artist, Machine Gun Kelly.  He is set to release his third studio album, bloom, the same day tickets go on sale for the tour - Friday May 12th. The inspiring debut single, “At My Best” featuring Hailee Steinfeld, was the number one most added song at Rhythmic radio, and has received 20.3+ Spotify streams to date.  His “Bad Things” single earned Machine Gun Kelly his first #1 song on Pop Radio as well as peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The One More Light World Tour won’t be the first time Linkin Park and Machine Gun Kelly shared the stage. In 2014, Machine Gun Kelly joined LP for a rendition of “Bleed It Out” on the band’s surprise appearance at the Van’s Warped Tour.

Also joining the tour at Mohegan Sun Arena is one of Japan’s most popular and electrifying live Rock bands, ONE OK ROCK.

The Who Plot Return To Mohegan Sun Arena

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Historic rockers will perform live in Connecticut on July 20th

UNCASVILLE, CT (April 17, 2017) – The Who, one of Rock’s legendary and defining bands, are hitting the road this summer and will be making their way to Connecticut for a live performance at Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday, July 20th.  The show will begin at 8:00pm.  Fans can expect the band to take them on an ‘Amazing Journey’ through their entire career from the days of The High Numbers to classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At The Leads up to the present day.

Tickets are $146.00 and $110.00 and go on sale Friday, April 21st 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 beginning on Saturday, April 22nd, subject to availability.

The Who have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964; they brought together four different personalities and in effect produced a musical hurricane.  Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger. They exploded conventional Rhythm and Blues structures, challenged Pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. Now into their 53rd year, the band is still going strong and winning rave reviews.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas.  Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size. In 2015, Mohegan Sun took home the IEBA award for “Casino of the Year.”  Mohegan Sun also won “Casino of the Year” in 2 categories at the 2013 & 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards.

John Mellencamp To Embark On Summer “Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour”

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Legendary Rocker performs live at Mohegan Sun on August 13th

UNCASVILLE, CT (March 20, 2017) – Following the seventh and final installment of his hugely-successful Plain Spoken Tour, John Mellencamp will set out once again this summer for 22 stops across North America for his all-new Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour.  Kicking off on June 5th in Denver, Colorado, the tour will continue throughout the United States with stops at the historic Greek Theatre in Los Angeles before making its way to Connecticut for a performance in Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, August 13th at 7:30pm.  Mellencamp will be joined by his Plain Spoken tour mate Carlene Carter.

Tickets are $49.50 and go on sale Friday, March 24th 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 beginning on Saturday, March 25th, subject to availability.

Every online ticket purchased comes with one (1) physical CD of John Mellencamp’s forthcoming album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies. John’s 23rd full-length album, featuring Carlene Carter returns Mellencamp to the musical eclecticism that is, itself, a reflection of his wide-ranging musings on life. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies showcases a poet who has wisely used the years between youth and the present day to become an absolute master of songwriting and interpretation. That passion and experience resonates most beautifully in this showcase of his music. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies is set for release on April 21, 2017 from Republic Records.

Described by the Hollywood Reporter as a “triumphant, career-spanning show” and hailed as a “superb performance…still full of fiery defiance” by the Boston Globe, the two-year run of John Mellencamp’s Plain Spoken Tour further solidified the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer’s place at the forefront of American music for the past 40 years.  The tour has received a massive amount of support from press around the nation, with AXS concluding Mellencamp “puts on one of the most electrifying Rock shows in the business,” and the Louisville Courier Journal highlighting his progression as a performer, noting, “he’s always been a consummate showman — but there was an underlying richness to his set that was far more impressive.”  The Fort Worth Star Telegram describes the audience’s reaction to the show, writing, “the near-capacity crowd roared its approval — they were shouting back the lyrics with the gusto of a bloodthirsty mob”.
