Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena celebrated a 3000th event milestone on Sunday, June 9th, with a sold-out show of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Nicks. The 10,000-seat venue, located inside the Mohegan Sun resort and casino, opened in October 2001.

As part of the celebration, Mohegan Sun selected two concertgoers for a special surprise. “To commemorate the 3,000th event milestone, a pair of lucky guests were chosen before Stevie Nicks took the stage and surprised with a prize package that included upgraded seats, merchandise, and more,” Mohegan Sun said. 

Every milestone for our venue is important because it shows the unity, reputation, and hard work that our entire Entertainment team exemplifies,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports and Entertainment at Mohegan. Mohegan Sun Arena is one of the busiest and most award-winning venues there is, and surpassing 3,000 total events is truly a testament to those who have helped put this great venue and Mohegan Sun on the world stage.”

Over its 23-year history, Mohegan Sun Arena has hosted major artists including Bruce Springsteen, Matt Rife, Billy Joel, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Pink, Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Thomas Rhett, and many more.

Comedians including Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Kevin James, and Sebastian Maniscalco have also graced the stage. The Arena will also present a three-night run beginning August 16th starring popular actor and comic Shane Gillis.

The venue is also set to continue to host the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun. The CT Sun made their debut at the venue in May 2003, and are currently the #1 team in the league with a 9-1 record. Mohegan Sun Arena has also hosted WNBA events like the WNBA draft, All-Star games, and the WNBA Finals.

This year has been busy for Mohegan Sun Arena as the venue reached the 15 million total guests milestone in February. Other accolades include being awarded the 2024 Newsweek Readers’ Choice award for “Best Casino with Live Entertainment in America” and being named “Best Casino/Resort Venue of the Year” at the 35th Annual Pollstar Awards.
