There's more to Foxwoods Resort Casino and MGM Grand at Foxwoods than gambling and their star-studded calendar for summer is a reminder of that. Coming to Mashantucket, Conn., are:

-- Keyshia Cole (June 5) with special guest Keri Hilson
-- Gladys Knight (June 6)
-- Crosby, Stills & Nash (June 13)
-- Comedienne Kathy Griffin (June 26)
-- Smokey Robinson (July 10)
-- Sting (July 19)
-- Tom Jones (July 24)
-- John Legend (Aug. 18) with special guest India Arie
-- The Steve Miller Band (Aug. 22)
-- Donna Summer (Aug. 28)

Other highlights include Cirque Illumination, a fantastical journey of the imagination, (July-September in the MGM Theater) and “Bodies: The Exhibition” (July-September on the Mezzanine level of the Grand Pequot Tower).

The Phantom Gourmet Summer Beach BBQ Party (June 19-21) will feature food from some of the world’s best barbecue teams, beer gardens, live music, and free mechanical bull and surf board rides.

And if gambling is your sole focus, there are 24 new table games in the Great Cedar Casino.

The complete entertainmnt schedule is available here.
