An old legend who rarely tours is coming out of hibernation and coming to Dallas. Elsewhere, we've got an Irish troubadour, an R&B songstress, and a pair of country singers have scheduled dates. Plus, a whole lot more ahead. Check it out in this week's installment of concert announcements.
- Musician Phil Collins has always had a subversive sense of humor. It's on display in full force as he has titled his upcoming run of arena dates the Still Not Dead Yet Tour.

- Singer-songwriter Patty Griffin is also coming to The Granada Theater. She'll tour the country this summer and fall in support of her upcoming 10th studio album, a batch of songs that detail reflections on some recent personal circumstances that took place around the recording sessions. Tickets for the June 29 show are on sale March 29 at prekindle.com.

- The Rockstar Energy Disrupt Festival is looking to fill the void once occupied by the Warped Tour.

- Country megastar Dierks Bentley is bringing his "Burning Man 2019" touring extravaganza to Dos Equis Pavilion on Aug. 10.
