Mystic Lake building new outdoor concert amphitheater, first show July 4
With festival season ramping up in the Twin Cities, Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake has announced that it'll be entering the outdoor concert market this season with a newly constructed, 8,357-capacity amphitheater that will open with a free show on July 4.
Construction of the new space started last week and is expected to be completed around June 20, when the seats and stage will be installed. The first outdoor concert will be held on the Fourth of July with Diamond Rio, followed by a performance by the Beach Boys on July 31. Media rep Craig Johnson says that Mystic expects to host about five shows this summer, and will be announcing additional gigs as early as next week.
The casino sent over a sketch that shows its plans for the new amphitheater; you can see a larger size of that rendition here:
