Cue “Return of The Mack” because T-Pain is back in Dallas. Originally, the Grammy award winning artist was scheduled to perform at The Factory in Deep Ellum on May 18. In response to low ticket sales, T-Pain voiced his complaints on a viral TikTok. The video found a second life on Twitter, which resulted in an exchange with Mayor Eric Johnson about public safety in Deep Ellum. After the back and forth, T-Pain rescheduled his Dallas tour date to Grand Prairie for his North Texas fans. Buy tickets to see Teddy Pain in person.
