An Oklahoma-based Native American tribe is preparing to open two new entertainment venues.
The Citizen Potawatomi Nation is opening the 2,000-seat Grand Events Center at Grand Casino Hotel and Resort this month to host concerts. It is located just east of Oklahoma City off of Interstate 40. Rodney Carrington will be the first to perform at the new venue. He has performances scheduled for Dec. 27 and 28.
Firelake Arena, a 5,000-seat space, will open in January in Shawnee. It will host concerts, conventions and community events.
