It’s a new year, and with it comes an embarrassment of riches when it comes to live shows in the area. Here is our ever-growing accounting of the shows (so far) on North Texas’ to-do list.

March starts off with Muse’s Will of the People tour at Dickies Arena and Carrie Underwood’s Denim & Rhinestones tour hitting American Airlines Center, and ends with Taylor Swift, who will play three dates at AT&T Stadium beginning on March 31 through April 2. Nineties metal band Queensryche will play the House of Blues, the Killers will hit the Choctaw Grand Theater in Durant, Oklahoma, and Reverend Horton Heat will visit Trees. The Longhorn Ballroom will open for the first time in years with Asleep at the Wheel and then Old Crow Medicine Show on the stage. The first week in March will also offer up the Fort Worth Music Festival, which will feature daily lineups of acts that include Radney Foster, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Roger Creager, and more. Also check out: Mavis Staples, SZA, John Mellancamp, Taylor Tomlinson, Epik High, Silversun Pickups, Buddy Guy, Hayes Carll, Boogie T, Drive By Truckers, Theory of a Dead Man, Guster, Ben Rector, Elle King, Joan Osborne, Luke Combs, and Stray Kids.

Maren Morris LeAnn Mueller

Two big acts to snag tickets to in April include the double bill of Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks at AT&T Stadium and Lyle Lovett, who will take the stage at the Majestic Theater for two nights. Local Maren Morris will take the stage at Choctaw Grand Theater, and you also have an opportunity to relive your misspent youth when the triple bill of New Edition, Keith Sweat and Guy hit Dickies Arena.  The Longhorn Ballroom will host the legendary Emmylou Harris. Also check out: Kenny Loggins, Key Glock, Blue October, Tab Benoit, Dawes, Styx, Jo Dee Messina, Keshi, Tyler Childers, Jamie Cullum, Seal, Craig Robinson, Morgan Wade and Lucero, and Hardy.

Picture closing out the spring with a bevy of acts that include Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA, who will take the stage at American Airlines Center in May. Legendary rock guitarist Santana will visit Dos Equis Pavilion, and husband-and-wife team David Foster and Katharine McPhee will play the Majestic Theater. Also check out: Brooks & Dunn, Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi, YungBlud, Reckless Kelly, and They Might Be Giants.

You and your friends are going to want to nail down your Janet Jackson tickets. Top priority of the summer. Ms. Jackson’s opener will be Ludacris, and she promises that there will be new music to go with that Together Again tour, which will arrive at Dos Equis Pavilion in June. Still feeling nostalgic? Duran Duran will be hitting the AAC and Weezer will be at the Toyota Music Factory this month, too. Grand Prairie’s Texas Trust Credit Union Theater will host Re:SET, a three-day ticket that will include Steve Lacy, Boygenius, Foushee, LCD Soundsystem, and more. Also worth checking out: Lady A, Walker Hayes, Matchbox Twenty, Big Time Rush, Bryan Adams, Fall Out Boy, Lainey Wilson (who will play two shows at Choctaw Grand Theater).

Blink-182 hits the road this summer, and will make a stop at the American Airlines Center in July. Former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson will be at Irving’s Toyota Music Factory, and Paramore and ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd will find themselves on the Dickies Arena stage (but not all at the same time). Shania Twain will bring her Queen of Me tour to Dos Equis Pavilion, too. Your kids will be pumped to learn that Dude Perfect will take over Dickies Arena at the end of July, too.

August (so far) offers “What’s Your Country Song” singer Thomas Rhett making a stop at American Airlines Center, JVKE at Southside Ballroom, Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper at Dos Equis Pavillion, and Foreigner at Dos Equis Pavilion.

The fall calendar will start to fill out in the next few months, but so far we have a pretty healthy offering of Beyonce at AT&T Stadium, Madonna and Mana at American Airlines Center, Arctic Monkeys at Dickies Arena, P!nk at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Depeche Mode at American Airlines Center, Jelly Roll and Three Six Mafia at Dos Equis Pavillion, a Pantera reunion at AT&T Stadium, another visit by Shania Twain (this time at Dickies), Metallica at AT&T Stadium, Pentatonix at Dos Equis Pavillion, Jason Aldean at Dickies Arena, and R&B singer Anita Baker at American Airlines Center.
