Turns out that about 1,500 people were willing to shell out close to $200 each to see Keith Urban break in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s new event center venue, because that show is sold out.

Now the space will see if Motown fans are into it by presenting Smokey Robinson on October 10. Tickets to see the 79-year-old singer are on sale now and will start at just $80 this time. The show, however, is 21 & up.

As we pointed out two weeks ago, a press release said that in addition to the Hard Rock Event Center, a 17,000-square-foot grand ballroom will host conventions, trade shows, private events, large-scale poker tournaments and concerts, including 60 major entertainment acts each year.

Ticketing information is available on ticketmaster.com.
