Written By Drew Ellis on August 31, 2022

As Labor Day approaches, the summer concert season is coming to a close.

But have no fear, as Michigan’s casinos will continue to provide quality entertainment through the holiday season.

Over the final four months of 2022, Michigan casino goers can still find a wide variety of entertainment options available to them.

Top musical acts at Michigan casinos

The big-name acts for the rest of 2022 get started over the holiday weekend.

Kid Rock will be putting on shows this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3 and 4, at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort. Saturday’s show includes George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, while Sunday’s show includes Buckcherry.

A former Beatle will be making multiple stops in Michigan in the weeks to come. Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band start off in Michigan on Sept. 30 at Soaring Eagle. They then make a stop at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo on Oct. 1.

Another name putting on multiple shows in Michigan this fall is Aaron Lewis. He is bringing his acoustic tour to Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie on Nov. 3. Lewis then has two stops at MotorCity Casino Hotel on Nov. 4 and Nov. 7.

Comedy acts coming to casinos in Michigan

Along with musical acts, casinos in Michigan will offer up some of the top standup comedians in the months to come.

If you’re looking for a night of laughs, here’s a sample of what’s available to you.

The classic Charlie Brown Christmas will be appearing at Four Winds New Buffalo on Dec. 17 and 18.
