Expect to hear nothing but muzik at the MTS Centre in November.

Atlanta rapper/actor Ludacris will headline the hip-hop arena show Just Muzik Nov. 12 alongside Rick Ross, Jim Jones, Roscoe Dash and Winnipeg's Most. Tickets go on sale Saturday for $38 to $162.50 at Ticketmaster.

Ludacris last played the city in November of 2003. The show at the Winnipeg Arena, which attracted 2,500 fans, was notable because it started two and a half hours late after a plane delay kept the rapper stranded in Chicago.

The Bay City Rollers have added a second show to their upcoming visit to Winnipeg, and it's on — when else? — a Saturday night.

The Scottish band — officially called Les McKeown's Legendary Bay City Rollers — will play two shows at McPhillips Station Casino on Nov. 18 and 19. Tickets to the first show are on sale now for $36.25 and $44.25 at Ticketmaster, while tickets to the second show go on sale Wednesday for the same price.

McKeown was the lead singer of the Bay City Rollers during their mid-1970s peak when they scored hits with Saturday Night, Remember, Shang-a-Lang and Money Honey.
