2023 is shaping up to be a major year for concerts. From Jon Pardi at Bayfront Festival Park to Grand Country Nights, the concert calendar is packed for the Northland! There's another new addition to it as well that makes it all the more legendary.

Rodney Atkins will be headlining a show at Black Bear Casino Resort this summer. He will take the stage at the Otter Creek Event Center on Friday, June 9th. Doors for the show open at 6 p.m. with the show kicking off at 7 p.m.

Tickets range from $20 to $45 depending on where you want to sit! You can purchase tickets online via Etix. You can also get tickets in person at the Black Bear Casino Resort Players Club, located at 785 MN-210 in Carlton.

As of now, there is no opener for the show. Rodney is most famous for hits like If You're Going Through Hell and Watching You, just to name a few. If you are a country music fan, you already know how big this show is going to be. It's going to be a great show to kick of the summer.

The Otter Creek Event Center is going to be pretty busy this year! Walker Hayes just announced a special show there in July. Tickets to that show go on sale on Thursday (April 6th). Is anyone else dreaming of an Oreo shake from Applebee's now? In all seriousness, Carlton is just a short drive from the Twin Ports. We will see you there!
