Post Malone

October 21, 8 p.m. | American Airlines Center

Grapevine’s Post Malone comes home (basically) this weekend as part of his tour supporting his fourth album, Twelve Carat Toothache. Presumably recovered from injuries sustained when he fell into a hole onstage last month in St. Louis, Friday marks Malone’s first local stop of the Texas leg of his tour—he’ll be in Fort Worth at Dickies Arena next weekend. Get tickets here.

Indigo Girls

October 21, 8 p.m. | Granada Theater

Nearly everyone probably knows at least one Indigo Girls song, and it’s probably “Closer to Free.”  Folk rock duo Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have been performing together since high school in the early 80s, and are in Dallas to support their first studio album in five years, Look Long—but expect to find plenty of favorites, too. Get tickets here.

The Judds Final Tour

October 22, 7:30 p.m. | Dickies Arena, Fort Worth

Wynonna Judd says she decided to go ahead and embark on the final tour of The Judds despite her mother Naomi’s death by suicide in April, saying the duo’s loyal fans make her “grateful that we will continue to honor The Judds legacy together.” Martina McBride is the tour’s opening act, and Judd announced that Trisha Yearwood will join her for her Fort Worth date.  Get tickets here.


October 22, 8 p.m. | Tannahill’s Tavern and Music Hall, Fort Worth

Rapper and actor Ludacris will come to Cowtown Saturday night with his biggest hits, including an unnamed Erickson family carpool and commute traffic staple, “Act a Fool,” “Roll Out,” and “Area Codes.” Get tickets here.

Jean Dawson

October 23, 7 p.m. | The Cambridge Room, House of Blues

Polymath Jean Dawson will hit the Cambridge Room Sunday in support of his new album, Chaos Now*, which was released on Oct. 7 and features appearances from Earl Sweatshirt and Isaiah Rashad. The Tijuana-raised Dawson draws from his experiences as a Black and Mexican man to produce music that has already attracted the attention of A$AP Rocky, SZA, and Miguel. Get tickets here.
