Rock it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

They don’t just give away nicknames like The Red Rocker; they have to be earned. Sammy Hagar has been “Livin’ It Up” with “Heavy Metal” and “Mas Tequila,” so the dude is a bona fide rock star (dressed in red, get it?). See the former Van Halen frontman with The Wabos, Tom Keifer and more, starting 7 p.m. Saturday at Grand Casino Hotel and Resort, 777 Grand Casino Blvd. in Shawnee. Tickets are $45-$75. Call 964-7777 or visit grandshawnee.com.

The OKC Theatre Company will resurrect the ancient production at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $10. Call 297-2584 or visit okctheatrecompany.org.
