The new 10,000-seat Mohegan Sun Arena will feature country star Tim McGraw to officially open the site at the Connecticut casino resort.

McGraw will appear Nov. 9, followed two days later by Latin pop diva Gloria Estefan. Classic rock artists Aerosmith will play the arena Nov. 19.

"What we've done by melding Clear Channel, the number one entertainment force in Connecticut and the Mohegan Sun, the number one gaming power, is make possible events that would be difficult to pull off if we didn't have each other," said Jim Koplik, president of Clear Channel Communications.
