Jingle Ball 2013 Starts Holiday Season With A Bang
The iHeart Radio/KISS FM Jingle Ball kicked off in Dallas last night at American Airlines Center to a huge turn out. This was great news not only for the artists performing, but for the Kidd’s Kids organization started by the late Kidd Kraddick. One dollar from every ticket sale went to the organization and from the looks of things that was a very nice-sized contribution. As holiday parties go it was a good way to start off the season.
Anytime The Pretty Reckless come to town, fans in Dallas get pretty excited. October 4, 2013 was no different. People lined up to see the Going To Hell Tour, consisting of The Pretty Reckless, Heaven’s Basement from the UK, and Louna from Russia. Already a fan of The Pretty Reckless and having heard Heaven’s Basement before but not seen them live, I was looking forward to the show. Louna I had not heard of until that night but they made a very lasting impression for more than just one reason.
With several clubs in the Deep Ellum district of downtown Dallas, TX, there are usually several shows to choose from on any given night. Wednesday is one of the quieter nights, so the fact that there wasn’t very much of a crowd at Wits End wasn’t all that surprising.

After a very successful show in Grand Prairie the night before, we sat down with HIM frontman Ville Valo before the Houston show to talk about returning to touring after a long break, album sales, Helldone, and the possibility of a long awaited Latin American tour. A big thanks to Ville for taking the time once again and keeping up our long standing tradition of sitting down for a chat when he’s in town. It is always a pleasure.
With the summer concert season coming to a close, a few tours were still headed down to the Lone Star State. The Rock Allegiance Tour hit Grand Prairie and Houston, Tx this past week it continued its twenty four city tour of North America. And though ticket sales have been a bit lower than most would have liked, that didn’t stop the bands from putting on a killer show or the fans that were there from showing their love.
Mayhem Fest wraps things up in the Texas heat
The first thing you notice about Mayhem Fest is the heat. August in Dallas, Texas is hard on any band playing an outside gig – and hard on the fans – but put three stages full of bands out at Gexa Energy Pavilion and start the whole thing at 1pm and you’ve got a seriously metal experience.
Taylor Swift Turns Dallas Red
What better way to spend a Saturday night than with a few friends at a great concert? How about spending it with 55,000 of them. That’s the number of people that filled Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on May 25, 2013 for Taylor Swift’s Red Tour.
