Here’s Who Is Coming to Dallas This Week: September 23–25

Start the weekend with some New Orleans brass or some New Wave glam, and end it smack-dab in the '90s.

Roxy Music

Sept. 23, 7 p.m. | American Airlines Center

British glam rock band Roxy walked so Duran Duran and Depeche Mode could run, and while the band was dissolved by singer Bryan Ferry in the early 80s, the band still gets back together occasionally. This time, that occasion is its 50th anniversary. Dallas’ St. Vincent has joined them for this tour. Get tickets here.

Rebirth Brass Band

Sept. 23, 8 p.m. | Tulips, Fort Worth

The Rebirth Brass Band is almost synonymous with New Orleans, having been an institution for nearly 40 years, the Grammy-winning band combines funk, jazz, soul, and jazz to create a sound that started on the sidewalks of the French Quarter and second lines, and eventually had them sharing stages with the Grateful Dead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, James Brown, Quincy Jones, and U2. Get tickets here.

ZZ Top with Jeff Beck and Ann Wilson

Sept. 24, 6 p.m. | Dos Equis Pavilion

The death of bassist Dusty Hill last July didn’t end ZZ Top—longtime guitar tech Elwood Francis is the band’s new bass player, joining Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard. Opening for the veteran rock band are Jeff Beck and Heart vocalist Ann Wilson. Get tickets here.

Fally Ipupa

Sept. 24, 7 p.m. | South Side Ballroom 

Congolese singer-songwriter Fally Ipupa’s latest album won’t be out until later this fall, but he’s already out touring to support it. With 20 million social media followers and a 2022 BET Awards nomination for Best International Act, Ipupa helped pave the way for Congolese and African music to hit mainstream audiences and was part of the first wave of Congolese musicians to fill large venues in France, selling out Paris’ Accor Arena in 2020. Get tickets here.

Cole Swindell

Sept. 24, 10 p.m. | Billy Bob’s, Fort Worth 

Cole Swindell spent years writing hits for other country artists like Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan, but in 2018 he saw his album All of It hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts. His latest album, Stereotype, has already generated three hits: “Single Saturday Night;” a duet with Lainey Wilson, “Never Say Never”; and his most recent hit, “She Had Me at Heads Carolina,” which is now in its second week atop the Billboard Country charts. Get tickets here.

Collective Soul

Sept. 25, 8 p.m. | The Factory in Deep Ellum 

Collective Soul hit the airwaves in the ’90s with “Shine” and “The World I Know” and never really stopped. In the three decades since, they’ve not only headlined their own tours but have also opened for the likes of Aerosmith, Van Halen, Styx, and Metallica. They’re touring now in support of their 11th album, Vibrating. Switchfoot opens the show. Get tickets here.
