On Friday, April 2, the songstress will perform at Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, February 20, though prices haven't been announced yet.

Former Kinks lead singer Ray Davies adds to an already chock-full St. Patrick's Day evening of concerts with a Wednesday, March 17, show at the Palladium Ballroom. Tickets ($28 to $38 plus TicketMaster blah blah blah charges) go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday with an All Access pre-sale 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday.

And Bon Jovi has added a second Dallas date to its tour, which means you can catch the New Jersey pop-metal act on Sunday, April 11, at the American Airlines Center in addition to his April 10 show.
