The reigning ACM Group of the Year, Old Dominion, just announced they'll be doing two shows here in Minnesota later this October.

After the year of the pandemic that we just came through, where just about EVERY activity, event and concert was canceled, it's a refreshing feeling to see things start to return here in Minnesota.

And that's especially true with the number of big-name country stars who've added dates here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Like, say, Old Dominion, who just added not one but two new shows here in the North Star State this fall.

Old Dominion, who just won their 4th consecutive ACM Award for Group of the Year, will be hitting the road later this year on their new 'Band Behind The Curtain Tour' and they announced Tuesday, May 4th, that they'll be making two stops here in Minnesota on October 9th and 10th, in the Mystic Showroom at Mystic Lakes Casino in Shakopee.

Tickets for both of these shows will officially go on sale on Friday, May 14th at 10 am on the Mystic Lake Casino website. But, there's also a special pre-sale event that will happen on Tuesday, May 11th (click HERE for more details.)

Now, if you can remember BEFORE the pandemic hit, Old Dominion already played here in Minnesota, taking the stage (along with Neil McCoy and Morgan Evans) in the Grandstand on August 29th during the 2018 version of the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

And three years before THAT, during the 2015 Minnesota State Fair, Old Dominion played a couple of free daytime shows in the Leinie's Lodge Bandshell (along with other familiar names like Terri Clark, Home Free, and Minnesota's own Lost Highway.)

And, of course, Old Dominion is also going to be at Country Thunder in Forest City, Iowa on Friday, June 11th-- and you can grab FREE tickets in our exclusive Platinum Experience Skybox, with a great view of the stage, your own private cash bar (and private restrooms) just by sending us a pic of you and your Country Cutie!
