Eric Burdon and The Animals in Concert, SeaDoo Giveaway Are Part of Summer of Fun

With an incredible classic rock concert and the “raciest” casino giveaway in the Valley, Spotlight 29 Casino is the place to be for fun this Father’s Day Weekend.

First, on Saturday, June 14, classic rock superstars and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer inductees Eric Burdon and the Animals will rock the Spotlight Showroom stage with one of the hottest classic rock concerts in the country. The Animals created standards that put the word “classic” in the term “classic rock” with hits like “House of the Rising Sun” and “Story of Bo Diddley.”

It is appropriate for the singer, author, actor, songwriter and all-around performer Burdon to be back in concert. His autobiographical song “The Road,” contains the lyrics: “I don’t live – if I don’t play this rock ‘n’ roll.” In concert with Burdon are a new group of Animals featuring Eric McFadden on guitars, Paula O’Rourke on bass, Red Young on keyboards and Tony Braunagel on drums.

Tickets for Eric Burdon and the Animals are $40 and $30. Only a few tickets remain and are available now at and at the Spotlight 29 Casino Gift Shop or by calling (800) 585-3737. Show time is 8 p.m.

The action heats up in the casino also on Saturday, June 14 with the “Summer of Fun SeaDoo Giveaway.” The casino is giving away not one, but TWO race-ready SeaDoo personal watercrafts. To be exact, one lucky player will win two 3-seater GTI SeaDoos, and a Triton Elite trailer with Tradesman custom storage box to haul them to a favorite summer watering hole, care of I-10 Motorsports.

Players can earn entries just for playing their favorite slots and table games now through June 14. Then starting at 3 p.m. on June 14, lucky winners’ names will be drawn for cash prizes and the grand prize of the TWO SeaDoos at 7 p.m., a perfect gift just in time for Father’s Day.

Put the spotlight on fun at Spotlight 29 Casino, the Coachella Valley’s most exciting place to play. Spotlight 29 Casino is a business venture of the Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians. Turn it on at
