Burton Cummings, Billy Idol And Many More Set Up Camp At the Great Indoors

Casino Rama Resort Teases 2016 Summer Concert Line-Up

RAMA, ON, March 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Think north this summer. North of boredom, north of the expected, north of the same old song and dance, where legends of classic rock meet icons of the silver screen and musicians fuse worlds of old and new. Casino Rama Resort is excited to tease the 2016 summer concert line-up, welcoming back fan favourites to the award-winning Entertainment Centre. Highlights include beloved Canadian rocker Burton Cummings arriving in time to celebrate Canada Day weekend with back-to-back shows, 80's pop icon Billy Idol returns with his trademark blonde spikes and rebel sneer and who better to spend 'Summer Nights' with than the original Sandy, Olivia Newton-John. This summer head to a place pretty much exactly like nowhere else and rock out at the Great Indoors.

Fans are invited to visit the Casino Rama Resort Facebook page to gain access to an exclusive pre-sale, along with a chance to beat the box office to win a pair of tickets to the show of their choice!
