SAULT STE. MARIE, MICH. - Oldies 93 presents Starship featuring original lead vocalist Mickey Thomas at Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie on Friday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $31.50 and will be available beginning May 18. You can purchase tickets online at or at the Kewadin Box Office.

After joining Jefferson Starship in 1979, the band immediately reached No. 1 with the release of Jane. As their sound developed and with the powerful new vocals of Mickey Thomas, the group changed their name to Starship and consistently produced hit songs like We Built This City, Sara, and Nothing’s Gonna Stop us Now, which garnered an Oscar nomination. Every Starship album released since 1979 has gone gold, platinum, or multi-platinum.

“Mickey Thomas and the band Starship continue to perform to sold-out audiences,” said Dan Doyle, Kewadin Casinos representative. “We’re anticipating this group and their famous songs will draw a large crowd this summer.”

Starship is only one of the many entertainment acts Kewadin Casinos is bringing to the Upper Peninsula. In recent months, Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie and Kewadin Casino St. Ignace have been the sites of performances by Howie Mandel, Jeff Carson, and Bret Michaels.

Additionally, upcoming performances at Kewadin Casinos include Air Supply on June 4, and April Wine and Lita Ford on June 24.

“We understand the importance of bringing quality entertainment for every audience,” said Doyle. “Attracting a broad spectrum of talent to the Upper Peninsula is one of our top priorities. Mickey Thomas and the members of Starship are legendary musicians who have been creating hit songs for decades. We’re very excited to have them perform at Kewadin.”

Besides Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie, the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians owns and operates casinos in St. Ignace, Manistique, Christmas and Hessel.

Located in one of the most scenic regions of North America, Kewadin Casinos currently offers 2,031 slot machines, 55 table games, hotels, dining and other amenities at five properties in Michigan’s eastern and central Upper Peninsula.

Owned and operated by the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, Kewadin Casinos are the premier gaming destinations for people who live in and visit the Upper Peninsula, which is bordered on the south by Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, on the west by Wisconsin, and on the north by Lake Superior and Canada.
