Country Superstar Trace Adkins Returns To Mohegan Sun

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Country superstar Trace Adkins with special gust Kellie Pickler will bring their chart-topping hits to Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, September 4th at 7:30pm. 

Tickets are $45.00 and are on sale Saturday, June 11th 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 starting Sunday, June 12th, subject to availability.

Adkins’ first album, the platinum Dreamin’ Out Loud, produced three Top 3 hits, including his first #1, (This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing.” More than twenty of his singles would hit the Top 20 and give him the platform from which everything else would follow.
           
His videos have been fan-voted “Top Video of the Year” three times on GAC, and “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” was voted #2 “Video of the Decade” by CMT. Trace became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2003, has been a guest on virtually every talk show on national television, and is currently celebrity spokesman for BC Headache Powder. He teamed with his friend Blake Shelton on the latter’s recent single, “Hillbilly Bone,” which went to the top of the charts and was named ACM “Vocal Event of the Year,” and, to top it all off, he was voted “Country’s Sexiest Man” by the readers of Country Weekly.

Adkins’ lastest album Cowboy’s Back In Town spawned the hit single “This Ain’t No Love Song,” and his latest hit “Just Fishin’” is currently riding Country airwaves.

Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 4th best venue by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 and 2010 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.
