That said, our local casinos are a mix of has-been county fair acts and the most up-to-date acts. One casino has a concert series by San Diego Bay that features the White Stripes this year, and had Radiohead last year. They supposedly stole the White Stripes from Street Scene, which used to be the biggest festival-type show in Southern California (pre-Coachella). So, casino shows aren't the instant knock to your rep that they used to be.
Of course, I think Air Supply might also be playing at the same casino. Like I said, it's a mixed bag.

The casinos have ampitheatres seperate from the gambling area.
That way the 13 year olds and their moms can see Beyonce.
