Reno, Nev. – Acclaimed singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Smokey Robinson is taking the stage at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino’s (GSR) Grand Theatre on Friday, Sept. 1. Since dominating the R&B scene in the 1960s and 70s with The Miracles, the Grammy winning Robinson has gone on to produce and write songs for other artists such as Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and Brenda Holloway. Over the course of his 50-year music career, Robinson has been credited with more than 4,000 songs including some of his solo hits like “Just to See Her,” “Quite Storm” and “None and Then.” Tickets for this show start at $70 and are on sale now at www.grandsierraresort.com or by calling 1-800-648-3568.

As well as performing the favorite moments from “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “The Wall” and “The Division Bell,” Brit Floyd will also pay special tribute to the “Animals” album, in its 40th anniversary year, with a show stopping rendition of ‘Dogs’, as well as a host of other Pink Floyd musical gems. The Brit Floyd show has become a phenomenon, widely regarded as the world's greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd. Faithfully recreating the scale and pomp of the final “1994 Division Bell” tour, complete with circle screen and multiple moving light design, lasers, inflatables and theatrics, a Brit Floyd show really is as close as fans will ever get to experiencing the magnificence of a Pink Floyd show live.
