All Young Dolph Everything, A Celebration of His Music

Dec. 10, 10 p.m. | Trees

On November 17, Young Dolph, known as the “King of Memphis,” was shot and killed in his hometown. Regarded as one of the most prominent voices in the South’s independent hip-hop scene, Dolph was admired and loved in Dallas. In 2020, the Memphis rapper gifted a Lamborghini to Jack Davila, a Dallas resident. When Davila and her family sold the car in 2021, Dolph responded with one of his signature phrases: “GET PAID.” To honor the rapper’s legacy, ALL / EVERYTHING will host a memoriam concert and plans to donate a portion of ticket sales to a local nonprofit that services Dallas youth. Purchase tickets.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra 

Dec. 11, 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. | American Airlines Center 

It’s not Christmas until the Trans-Siberian Orchestra plays its signature rendition of “The First Noel.” The electrifying pyrotechnic band celebrates the 25th anniversary of Christmas Eve and Other Stories, the band’s debut album, with a live performance of the album’s greatest hits. According to Billboard, “Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24),” a single from the album, is one of the top-selling holiday songs in the nation. (Of course, you knew this because how else did it secure a top spot?) Buy tickets to hear the song in person.
