Kevin Costner to sing, speak in Atlantic City

Kevin Costner, whose indie comedy "Swing Vote" opens next month, will make two appearances in Atlantic City. On Aug. 1, Costner and his country-rock band, Modern West, are playing at House of Blues. The next night he'll appear at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater to talk about his movies, which include "The Untouchables," "The Bodyguard," "Field of Dreams" and in recent years, "The Upside of Anger." Tickets for the concert are $29 and $32, and for the movie lecture $30-$50. Both events are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
