Fantasia Barrino-Taylor has done a great deal since winning American Idol, from multiple Broadway appearances, a movie about her life, and several Grammy awards. Later this year, we’ll see her reprise her Broadway role as Celie in the film version of the musical The Color Purple. She’ll bring everything from her first Billboard chart-topper, “I Believe,” to tunes from her latest studio album, 2019’s Sketchbook. Get tickets here.

Roland Parrish Battle of the Bands

January 14, 2 p.m. | Globe Life Field, Arlington

If you’re a fan of marching bands, spend the afternoon at Globe Life Field taking in the best of high school and college bands.

Get tickets here.


January 14, 8 p.m. | Will Rogers Auditorium, Fort Worth

The second entry in the stock show concert series is 80s hair band, Tesla. Expect them to bring their hits like “Love Song,” “Signs,” and “What You Give,” but also expect some tunes from their entire eight-album collection, too. Get tickets here.

Asleep at the Wheel

January 14, 8 p.m. | Tannahill’s Tavern and Music Hall, Fort Worth

Maybe you really like Western swing. Or maybe you take a look at the Austin City Limits Festival lineups and think, “I am too elderly to sit on the ground or use a portajohn for three days, and I am unaware of most of these bands except Asleep at the Wheel and that band I listened to during that one extensive breakup in college.” The 50-year-old (plus) band of a rotating cast of musicians will take the stage at Tannahill’s Tavern Saturday. Get tickets here.


January 15, 7:30 p.m. | Texas Trust Credit Union Theater, Grand Prairie

From his debut eponymous album in 1998 to his latest, Beautiful Pain, Tyrese Gibson has also packed in six (and counting) installments of the Fast & Furious franchise, playing everybody’s TV boyfriend on 90s shows, and six albums.
