The Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma has been smart with their Global Events Center and The Colosseum, two entertainment venues that stay busy, bringing in big crowds with the big name musical guests booked by the casino.
The Global Events Center has 3,500 seats while The Colosseum is an outdoor stage featuring 9,000 seats. Each venue has featured musicians, comedians and other acts that would most likely perform in nearby Dallas, Texas. The tribe books the acts at the WinStar and uses a non-compete clause in the contact, which means the rival venues cannot book the same shows, ensuring visitors will come to the casino rather than other venues.

Popular musical and comedy acts are booked to provide an entertainment outlet for visitors to the casino who enjoys a live show while at the same time having access to quality casino gaming.
