Gary Allan and Jon Anderson also slated to perform

During a mere 17-day span this spring, the two Seneca Casino resorts will be home to one of the world's premier classic rock bands, a leading country singer-songwriter, one of the most successful comedians in history, one of the most powerful rock voices from the 1980s, and an accomplished actor/director who leads a side band. Heart, Gary Allan, Jay Leno, Jon Anderson and Kevin Costner & Modern West will perform at the Seneca Casinos between March 27 and April 12 - providing a full bloom of entertainment this spring in Western New York.

Ann and Nancy Wilson continue to rock audiences worldwide with the band Heart, which comes to Seneca Niagara Events Center Thursday, March 27, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $55 and are on sale now. Hits "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "These Dreams" and "Alone" endure on the airwaves and helped earn Heart a 2013 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The group has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide, and its span of Top 10 albums in four decades is the longest by a female-fronted band.

Bold, emotional country ballads will fill the Seneca Allegany Events Center in Salamanca when singer-songwriter Gary Allan takes the stage for a 7 p.m. show on Saturday, March 29. Tickets start at $35 and go on sale Monday, Jan. 20, at noon. Allan's latest album, "Set You Free," reached No. 1 on both the country and overall U.S. Billboard charts, with the smash single "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)" achieving Platinum sales status. Other top singles throughout Allan's 18-year recording career include "Man to Man," "Tough Little Boys," "Nothing On but the Radio," "Watching Airplanes" and a moving cover of Vertical Horizon's "Best I Ever Had."

Even in the midst of being host of "The Tonight Show" since 1992, Jay Leno averaged more than 150 standup comedy gigs a year - and Seneca Niagara Events Center becomes the latest venue added to his accomplished resume on Saturday, April 5, at 8 p.m. Tickets for the performance start at $50 and are on sale now. Leno will have plenty to chat about during his visit to Niagara Falls, as his longtime stint on "The Tonight Show" is slated to conclude after the Winter Olympics in late February. Leno also is a voice-over talent for many animated shows and films, a New York Times best-selling author and a car aficionado with a collection of more than 190 classic cars and motorcycles.

On Friday, April 11, the crisp acoustics inside the 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom in Niagara Falls will provide a perfect venue for alto-tenor Jon Anderson, the original lead vocalist and creative force behind the rock band Yes. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show start at $45 and go on sale Monday, Jan. 20, at noon. Anderson co-authored many of the band's biggest hits, including "Owner of a Lonely Heart," "Roundabout," and "I've Seen All Good People." His most recent appearance in the Bear's Den Showroom was in August 2010 in front of a sold-out crowd.

Kevin Costner & Modern West will perform at Seneca Allegany Events Center for the first time ever on Saturday, April 12, at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show start at $35 and go on sale Monday, Jan. 20, at noon. While Costner is best known as an actor, director and producer for memorable films such as "The Bodyguard," "Dances with Wolves," "The Untouchables" and "Field of Dreams," he originally performed as a musician prior to his movie career. Together with friends in late 2007, he formed the country/rock band Kevin Costner & Modern West. The group has released four albums; the latest - "Famous for Killing Each Other: Music from and Inspired by Hatfields & McCoys" - being the most successful yet, reaching No. 14 on the U.S. Country Billboard charts. To kick off 2014, the band released a new single, "Alive in the City."
