Smokey Robinson plans Connecticut show

, Staff

Smokey Robinson will play just three shows next month, one of which will take place in New England. The legendary singer will play the MGM Grand Theatre at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Saturday, November 13. Tickets, which range in price from $40 to $60, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.

Robinson’s most recent offering of new material was 2009’s Time Flies When You’re Having Fun. The album features collaborations with Carlos Santana, Joss Stone and India.Arie.

On November 1, Robinson will release Now and Then, a 12-song album that will be exclusively available through Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. Six of the songs on Now and Then are live versions of Robinson’s best-loved classics recorded this year during various performances, while the other six tracks are culled from the Time Flies When You’re Having Fun. The deal marks the firs time that an R&B artist has been featured in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s exclusive music program.
