There are dozens of great concerts—Christmas-related and otherwise—happening throughout Dallas-Fort Worth this month that you should have on your list.
December 1, 7 p.m.
Ring in the month with the supergroup you never knew you wanted. In 2015, former Grateful Dead band members united with John Mayer to form Dead & Company. While they have yet to release a studio album, they have thrilled fans across the country with their stellar live shows that mix tunes old and new.
December 8, 6:30 p.m.
We all know the show Nashville is terrific (I like Christmas and soap operas, sue me) but this December we get to see a real Nashville Star live and in person. Singer-songwriter extraordinaire Chris Young has captivated country fans ever since he won that show’s competition over ten years ago, and his December 8 show is sure to include some songs off his very merry holiday album, It Must Be Christmas.
December 8, 7:30 p.m.
Have a ball, Little Monsters: Both Santa and Lady Gaga are coming to town this month, but only one will be putting on an extravagant, can’t-miss concert. Gaga’s DFW detour is the latest stop on her Joanne world tour, and is sure to include the kind of jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring vocals and spectacle that this uber-talented artist has become known for.
December 9, 10:30 p.m.
Who says country and Christmas don’t mix? The long-awaited release of Deep South, Turner’s sixth studio album, has the country crooner back on the road, and there’s no better plan than the true Deep South—namely, the historic Billy Bob’s Texas—for a holiday hangout.
December 22, 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
You’ve no doubt heard them in the movies, on television and every holiday playlist since the dawn of time, so why not see them live? The Trans-Siberian Orchestra brings their timeless talents to the AAC for a night of classic and classy Christmas fun, so mark your calendar, grab a date and I’ll see you there.
