Snoqualmie Casino fills concert schedule
January 8, 2009
The new year promises to bring many new faces to Snoqualmie Casino — quite a few of them famous.
The casino has a long list of events already scheduled for 2009, starting off with a January packed with everything from fights and acrobats to singers and musicians.
On Jan. 8, country music artist Kellie Pickler is scheduled to perform. Pickler was a sixth-place finisher on the fifth season of American Idol and has already produced a gold album.
Jan. 10 will debut the casino’s first mixed martial arts fight with the “Rumble on the Ridge.” That will be followed by a comedy routine from Terry Fator on Jan. 15.
Grammy nominees Wilson Phillips will perform Jan. 16, with Grammy-nominated R&B quartet En Vogue taking the stage the following night.
The Chinese Acrobats of Hebei will perform their daring maneuvers with Chinese poles, incredible hand balances and feats of strength Jan. 25. The comedy, theatre, music and juggling team known as The Flying Karamazov Brothers will perform Jan. 29.
Country pop singer and songwriter LeAnn Rimes will play at the casino Jan. 30, followed by country singer Ronnie Milsap on Feb. 13, Debra McClinton Feb. 18 and Little Big Town Feb. 19.
Pop rock band Smashmouth will perform on Feb. 20. The next night, comedian Bob Saget — who was a cast member on the television show Full House and the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos — will take the stage.
March begins with a performance on the 7th by singer-songwriter and actress Jewel, who has been nominated for three Grammy awards and sold more than 27 million albums during her career.
Tickets to all of the performances are available through Ticketmaster.
