July 28: Amy Schumer
WinStar World Casino
Riding the high from her latest Hollywood hit, I Feel Pretty, Amy Schumer returns to the stage for another stand-up comedy tour.

Aug. 25: Creedence Clearwater Revisited
Choctaw Grand Theater
Originally known as Creedence Clearwater Revival, or CCR, this legendary group still has two of its founding members.

Unfortunately, former member Tom Fogerty died before the band regrouped, and his brother John  decided to forego the new project and even attempted to sue. Hard feelings aside, the show is certain to be jam-packed with songs that made the group mega-famous in the late '60s and '70s. Not to mention a killer opening act, Kansas. Tickets start around $35.

Sept. 8: Eddie Money
Choctaw Grand Theater
Do “Take Me Home Tonight” and “Two Tickets to Paradise” ring a bell? Eddie Money is still killing it with his multi-instrumental performances of '70s and '80s chart-topping hits. Even if you’re not familiar with his music, you may have seen this musician starring in a reality TV show, Real Money, with his five children. Tickets start at $25.

WinStar World Casino
This legend is still on the road. Sing along to the best of Bob Dylan as you experience hits such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Like a Rolling Stone.” He's 77 years old, so you never know how long Dylan will be touring.
