Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo

Through February 3| Downtown Fort Worth
The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo will cap off its final weekend and its Auditorium Series, featuring Country Music Hall of Famer Tanya Tucker on January 26 and Pam Tillis and Little Texas on February 1.  You can catch the rodeo action at Dickies Arena, but that will take a separate ticket.

Air Supply

January 27, 8 p.m.| Arlington Music Hall
The Australian duo of Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock will head to Arlington Music Hall on Saturday night. The two are on their The Lost in Love Experience tour, celebrating almost 50 years of Air Supply. Expect the setlist to include their most instantly recognizable songs, including “All Out of Love,” “Here I Am,” “Even the Nights Are Better,” and “Every Woman in the World.” The show is sold out, but you can still find tickets on the resale market.

Judy Collins

January 27, 8 p.m.| Eisemann Center, Richardson
Grammy-winning folk legend Judy Collins will perform with the Richardson Symphony Orchestra on Saturday night. The 84-year-old has a new album—Spellbound—to support, but expect to hear some of the biggest hits from her 55-album body of work, including “Send in the Clowns” and “Both Sides, Now.”

Pat Green

January 27, 10 p.m.| Billy Bob’s Texas, Fort Worth
Fort Worth’s Pat Green hits the Billy Bob’s Texas stage Saturday night. He’ll bring a relatively new album (2022’s Miles and Miles of You) and a huge catalog of hits, including “Carry On,” “Three Days,” and the Grammy-nominated “Wave on Wave.”

The Dennis Gonzalez Legacy Band

January 28, 7 p.m.| Texas Theatre
The Dennis Gonzalez Legacy Band will pay homage to its namesake—avant-garde jazz trumpeter, Dallas ISD teacher, and one-time KERA DJ Dennis Gonzalez—on Sunday night in his stomping grounds of Oak Cliff. Gonzalez died in 2022 at the age of 67. The band is performing for the second time, and the night’s two sets will showcase Gonzalez’s four decades of work. The band includes Gonzalez’s children, Aaron and Stefan, on bass and drums, respectively, along with Lily Taylor on vocals, Rob Mazurek and Jawwaad Taylor on trumpet, Drew Phelps on bass, Gaika James on trombone, and Danny Kamins and Joshua Miller on saxophone.

Hart Institute for Women Conductors Showcase Concert

January 28, 7:30 p.m.| Winspear Opera House
The Hart Institute for Women Conductors showcases the best young conductors in a concert each year. The two-week residency is designed to help address the gender imbalance among conductors worldwide and ends with a concert. More than 500 women conductors from 40 countries have applied since the Hart Institute was launched in 2015. Sunday evening, each conductor participating this year (Maria Benyumova of Germany, Micah Gleason and Shira Samuels-Shragg of the U.S., and Jingqi Zhu of China) will lead the Dallas Opera Orchestra in excerpts from Menotti’s The Consul, Puccini’s Suor Angelica, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, and Barber’s Vanessa. The orchestra will be joined by sopranos Jocelyn Hansen, Megan Kasanders, Hye Jung Lee, Alexandra Loutsion, and Terresa Perrotta; mezzo-sopranos Lindsay Kate Brown, Kristen Choi, Gretchen Krupp, and Meridian Prall; tenor Jordan Hammons; bass-baritone Kyle Albertson; and bass Seth-Emmanuel Clarke.
