Heat will rise from the Event Center at Treasure Island Resort & Casino as the spring thaw slowly approaches.

With a wide variety of national entertainment lined up, the stage is set for heart-warming performances.

From the vocals of Kenny Rogers, Vince Gill and the Canadian Tenors to the mind-boggling psychic powers of Sylvia Browne and the Pawn Stars deals, there is much to experience in the million-dollar acoustical atmosphere.

"We like to balance the entertainment with a mix of country to rock to comedians," said Cindy Taube, public relations manager.

Repeat performances are a common option to the several of the artists, who have sold out shows in the 3,000-seat complex.

"There is lots of appeal to come back and play again," Taube said of the acts. "The space is big enough for a large crowd, but has an intimate setting that the performers enjoy."

Legendary country singer Kenny Rogers will return to perform at 8 p.m. Thursday. With a career spanning five decades, the iconic figure has amazed fans with his vocals and ability to tell stories through music. He has an undeniable power to engage audiences, according to Taube.

Vince Gill, another country megastar, will grace the stage March 25. With more than 26 million albums sold and 18 Country Music Awards, the artist remains one of country music's most decorated and acclaimed performers.

A third country artist will perform two days later: Ray Price, who joined the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996, plays March 27.

Constant sell-out psychic and spiritual teacher Sylvia Browne promises to amaze the audience April 2. She boasts a down-to-earth personality and great sense of humor.

International music sensations the Canadian Tenors will sing here April 30.

The group has entertained millions of people over five continents with a blend of classical and contemporary pop. After their performance at the Event Center last November, the tenors told the audience they wanted to come back -- and kept their word with this booking, Taube said.

With at least one national entertainment act a month, the casino offers a wide variety to satisfy all walks of life and the venue has the state-of-the-art equipment to dazzle not only audiences but also artists alike, keeping them coming back for more, she said.
