Do they still sell Dippity-Do?
Slash will play with Myles Kennedy at the Joint at the Hard Rock Tulsa Hotel & Casino.
If you still live in ripped jeans, bandannas and a perpetual cloud of Aqua Net, your week is here. Hair band/metal head/hard rock fans get five big shows beginning this weekend with Whitesnake, which plays three casino venues in the area. Famous in the latter 1980s with hit songs like “Here I Go Again” and flashes of leggy Tawny Kitaen doing the splits on the hood of a Jaguar, the band is back with a tour stopping at First Council Casino, 12875 N. Highway 77, in Newkirk for a 7 p.m. show on Friday, July 12. Tickets are $42.90-$90, available at www.ticketstorm.com. Front man David Coverdale and the boys then head to the Lucky Star Casino, 7777 N. Highway 81, in Concho for an 8 p.m. show on Saturday, July 13, at the casino event center. Tickets are $37.50-$90, also available at www.ticketstorm.com. Whitesnake has two more shows at Riverspirit Casino, 8330 S.
