Dwight Yoakam Brings Honky Tonk to Primm Valley Resort and Casino
Tickets are now on sale to see country legend Dwight Yoakam Saturday, April 1 at Star of the Desert Arena in Primm. Yoakam continues to sell out tours, performing hits like “Miner’s Prayer,” “Fast As You,” “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere” and the number one hit “Guitars, Cadillacs.” Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $25.
Revered for his honky tonk, Bakersfield-blues style that many say saved country in the 80s and the 90s, Yoakam has been wowing audiences since his first hit, “Miner’s Prayer.” With 10 gold, platinum, or triple-platinum albums, 14 top 10 Billboard hits, and honors from the Grammys, CMAs, ACMs, and the “Artist of the Year” honor from the Americana Music Awards under his belt buckle, Yoakam’s legacy in country music is set. He’s sold more than 25 million albums worldwide.
Yoakam released his newest album “Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…” in 2016 on the 30th anniversary of “Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.” the album that solidified his chart-topping status. Yoakam wooed fans this time around by reinterpreting some of his hit songs in a bluegrass style.
“We are excited for Dwight Yoakam to bring the sounds of country to the Star of the Desert Arena,” said Shana Gerety, vice president of marketing at Primm Valley Casino Resorts. “It’s the perfect opportunity for the Las Vegas community to take the short drive to Primm to see a show, dine, stay and play.”
