Tammy Gray, Jeanne Vondal, and Chuck Minnick of Q Casino, the non-profit casino owned by the City of Dubuque, all stopped in studio this morning to announce some BIG names coming to Dubuque this summer!

In what they promise is the first of many shows on Q Casino's popular Back Waters Stage, they announced rapper Ja Rule will be performing on Friday, June 10th at 7pm! Ja Rule will be joined by special guests Ginuwine along with the Ying Yang Twins.

Tickets can now be purchased on the Back Waters Stage's website, or at Guest Services at Q Casino. This is an all ages show as well, with the event to be held rain or shine!

Famous for such bangers as "Put It On Me" and "Livin' It Up," Ja Rule's career has spanned multiple decades, culminating with several hits and movie roles. Just some of his accomplishments are 20 million albums sold worldwide with his seventh studio album coming very soon. It all started back in 1999 when he dropped his debut album, Venni Vetti Vecci.

Ginuwine has amassed several genuine hits himself, perhaps his most famous being the enduringly popular "Pony" (recently featured in both Magic Mike and its sequel). Several of his albums have went multi-platinum, as have his singles, making him one of R&B's top artists during the 1990s. He continues to hone his craft with many shows a year!

Finally, the Ying Yang Twins burst on the scene during the Crunk-era of hip-hop in the mid-2000s. Their singles, "Salt Shaker" and "Wait (The Whisper Song)," still get functions jumping. Despite enjoying immense popularity in the south in the early 2000s, it was their collaboration with Lil Jon with "Get Low" that took their status to that of global stars. The Ying Yang Twins are no stranger to having all eyes on them, whether it's on-stage or alongside Britney Spears on her album, In the Zone, or her subsequent TV special of the same name!

General admission tickets for the event go on sale Monday, April 4th at 10 AM. Tickets start at $49.50 and can be purchased here!
