Michigan casino spring summer concert calendar.

Now that February has passed, it’s time to get in the party mood.

Michigan casinos have some big names lined up for their spring and summer concert calendars.

Some of the biggest names in music and comedy will be coming to a casino near you in the upcoming months.

Get ready to rock at Michigan casino concerts

The upcoming months will bring some of the legendary rock-and-roll acts to the state of Michigan.

Skid Row and Buckcherry join forces on March 15 at MotorCity Casino in Detroit to kickoff the rock surge.

REO Speedwagon makes a pair of stops in March. It plays at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo on March 24, then hits Soaring Eagle Casino on March 25.

The long beards will be out in force on April 7 when ZZ Top plays FireKeepers Casino.

At the end of April, Tesla is making three stops at Michigan casinos. It starts April 18 at MotorCity Casino. That is followed on April 21 with a performance at Four Winds New Buffalo. On April 22 it closes out the run at Little River Casino.

Perhaps the biggest name of all will be playing on April 28 when Alice Cooper rocks out at Soaring Eagle Casino.
