Black, Milsap to play new venue

The Spokane Tribe of Indians unveils its new outdoor amphitheatre on Saturday with a concert headlined by country music star Clint Black.

The Two Rivers Amphitheatre sits on the grounds of the Two Rivers Casino and Resort located North of Davenport on the Spokane Indian Reservation. The venue comfortably seats 7,000-plus in festival-style seating where spectators are encouraged to bring a blanket or a lawn chair. Limited VIP seating is also available.

The 60-by-25-foot stage features an impressive backdrop view of the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia rivers.

The venue offers on-site food vendors and an enclosed beer garden with a view of the stage. Outside food is not permitted.

Local musicians will be onstage as well as the big names. Native American Music Award winner and Colville Tribe member Jim Boyd and local blues band Sammy Eubanks open the Clint Black show; Elbow Coulee and blues-rock scorcher Two Slim & the Taildraggers support country-pop singer Ronnie Milsap, who comes to Two Rivers on July 27.

Tickets for Clint Black and Ronnie Milsap are $40 each, available through TicketsWest, www.ticketswest.com, (509) 325-SEAT, and Two Rivers Casino, www.tworivers casinoandresort.com, (800) 722-4031. Gates open at 5 p.m.

Tent and RV camping with amenities such as laundry rooms and showers is available in the nearby RV Park and pavilion space through the Two Rivers Casino & Resort.
