Despite a dip this week in the number of new concert announcements for Dallas, a few big events have tickets going on sale soon. Check out what’s new below.

  • Pink and her indomitably positive spirit will return to Dallas for a show at the American Airlines Center on May 1.

Tickets go on sale the day Beautiful Trauma is released, Friday, Oct. 13, at ticketmaster.com.

  • The Granada Theater hosts a fun double bill of tribute bands Jan. 6. Thin White Dukes will capture the essence of the late David Bowie while Wild Boys brings forth the pop sheen of Duran Duran.

Los TexManiacs, featuring Flaco Jimenez, Peter Rowan and Rick Trevino, will take the stage as part of the TexMex Holiday Festival.
