Mohegan Sun has revealed plans for their 15th anniversary celebration this fall. The resort casino in Uncasville, Connecticut will celebrate with a weekend full of entertainment from October 21 to 23, including a one-time-only performance by pop superstar Jennifer Lopez.

Created especially for the celebration, Lopez will perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, October 22. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $85 and $125. The pop superstar released her latest album, Love?, in May. The album, her seventh studio effort, has been powered by the success of its lead single, “On The Floor”. The song, which features rapper Pitbull, shot to #1 in 18 countries. In addition to returning as a judge for season 11 of American Idol, Lopez will co-star in the romantic comedy, What To Expect When You’re Expecting in 2012.

The weekend will also feature Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills and country star Dierks Bentley performing free concerts in Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den on October 21 and 22, respectively. Stills, best known for his work in Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash, is expected to perform songs from throughout his career. Bentley’s latest hit “Am I The Only One”, the lead single off his forthcoming sixth studio album, recently topped the Country radio charts.

Port Chuck, featuring the soap stars of General Hospital, will perform at Mohegan Sun’s Cabaret Theatre on October 22. Also in the works is a celebrity salute to Regis Philbin and public events with Buddy Valastro (The Cake Boss), celebrity chefs Bobby Flay, Todd English and Jasper White, and Mary Murphy of So You Think You Can Dance. Several other celebrities will be on hand to participate in the festivities.
