Saturday, June 21st is the first official day of summer, so Harrah's Gulf Coast casino in Biloxi is hosting a free Darius Rucker concert. The concert is part of the casino's debut as Harrah's Gulf Coast. The concert will be held on the original site of the Grand Casino. In its place, Harrah's has created a ten and a half acre multipurpose green space. After the concert, there will be a fireworks display. Saturday’s concert and parking for the event are free to the public.
Shay Smith of Harrah’s Gulf Coast says, “Why shouldn’t people come? I mean, it’s gonna’ be a fantastic weekend. Darius Rucker, who has ever heard of a free concert with a talent like Darius Rucker? It’s just gonna’ be a great time. We really want to put on a fantastic event for the entire Gulf Coast and of course we’re also debuting our new event space, the Great Lawn. There’s no amenity like it on the Gulf Coast, so we’re really excited to show it off and show everyone what we can do here at Harrah’s Gulf Coast.”
Gates open Saturday at 5 p.m. Tickets are not required for the concert, but if you plan on attending, Harrah's encourages you RSVP at ticketmaster.com.
