MULVANE, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Star has booked country singer Tim McGraw for the grand opening concert of its arena in Mulvane

Its grand opening concert July 7 marks the latest phase of the development at the Kansas Star Casino.

McGraw is best known for hits like “Live Like You Were Dying,” ”Where the Green Grass Grows” and his latest hit, “Highway Don’t Care.”

The Kansas Star Casino was temporarily located on the arena floor for its first year of operation. It moved into its permanent facility in December.

That allowed work to begin on remodeling the arena for its original purpose as a multi-purpose venue capable of hosting concerts, sporting events and horse shows.

The arena will seat about 6,000 people for its opening concert. Tickets go on sale May 24.
