Zac Brown Band

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. October 3

In a radio interview last year, Zac Brown really hurt Luke Bryan’s feelings by calling “That’s My Kind of Night” the worst song he’s ever heard. Brown was probably just being honest, and of course it is the worst song many people have ever heard, but you have to... More >>

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 6:00 p.m. October 4

Jumbo shrimp. Living dead. Christian hip hop. These are all oxymorons. The former two are just things that happen to be the opposite of one another, antonyms.
