Valentines Day 2023 in Fort Worth

VALENTINE’S DAY 2023

The History of Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is named after Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century. 

At the time of Valentine’s life, many Romans were converting to Christianity, but the Emperor Claudius II was a pagan and created strict laws about what Christians were allowed to do. Claudius believed that Roman soldiers should be completely devoted to Rome and therefore passed a law preventing them from marrying.  St Valentine began to marry these soldiers in secret Christian ceremonies and this was the beginning of his reputation for believing in the importance of love.  200 years later, February 14th was proclaimed St Valentine’s Day

This year we officially celebrate our Loves on a Tuesday.  Don’t wait till Tuesday!  Here is a list of great date night experiences to celebrate Love in Fort Worth, either before or after February 14th.  Happy Valentine’s Day!  We LOVE Fort Worth!

Cliburn Concert Series with J’Nai Bridges

Friday, February 11th 

The Post at River East

A flashy Cliburn Concerts debut, without a doubt: J’Nai Bridges comes to Fort Worth fresh off a 2022 Grammy win for her recording of Philip Glass’ Akhnaten with the Metropolitan Opera. She’s known for her “plush-voiced mezzo-soprano” (The New York Times) and has been heralded as “a rising star” (Los Angeles Times); she’s graced the world’s top stages in repertoire ranging from traditional favorites to world premieres to spirituals and standards. The American mezzo-soprano sold out her Carnegie Hall solo recital debut. She’s performed at the BBC Proms, Elbphilharmonie, and Tanglewood Festival; with the San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Dutch National Operas; and with the National, BBC, New York Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the last with Yo-Yo Ma. And now a handful of lucky Fort Worth patrons will get to hear her excellence in two intimate concerts, one at the Kimbell, one at The Post.

Arlington Music Hall

An Evening with JD Souther

Saturday, February 17th 

Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee JD Souther is “one of the most celebrated songwriters of his generation,” writes Interview Magazine. “Raised on a steady diet of big band and jazz during his childhood, Souther has routinely returned to that music— as well as the genius songwriters of the early 20th century (Gershwin, Cole Porter)—for inspiration. On his latest studio album, Tenderness, Souther combines these musical threads, striking a perfect balance between understated jazz and the ineffable pop narratives that have been the backbone of much of his greatest work.”

Tedeschi Trucks Band at Will Rogers Auditorium

Tedeschi Trucks Band at Will Rogers Auditorium

TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND EXTENDS SPRING 2023 TOUR WITH SEVERAL DATES IN TEXAS 

  • WILL ROGERS AUDITORIUM – FORT WORTH, TX – MAY 9, 2023
  • SMART FINANCIAL CENTRE – SUGAR LAND, TX – MAY 3, 2023
  • MUSIC HALL AT FAIR PARK – DALLAS, TX – MAY 5, 2023
  • MOODY AMPHITHEATER – AUSTIN, TX – MAY 7, 2023
New Album, I Am The Moon, “A Musical Masterpiece” (Downbeat) Out Now

Tedeschi Trucks Band is adding several performances in Texas to their spring itinerary. The dates mark the group’s first return to the Lone Star State since 2019 and first opportunity for Texas fans to hear songs from their acclaimed four-album release, I Am The Moon, in concert.

The Texas dates begin on May 3 at Smart Financial Centre in Sugarland, and include Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas on May 5; Moody Amphitheater in Austin on May 7; and Will Rogers Auditorium in Fort Worth on May 9. A full listing of all Texas-area shows and the full tour itinerary is below. The Greyhounds will be supporting Tedeschi Trucks Band on all Texas dates except Austin.

These latest additions to TTB’s tour schedule come hot off the heels of an exciting series of sold- out shows across Florida and extend what is already a busy first half of 2023 for the Grammy-winning 12-piece powerhouse led by guitarist Derek Trucks and singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi.  Upcoming highlights also include a mainstage return to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and multiple night residencies in Washington D.C, Nashville and Chicago.

Swamp Family Fan Club member tickets go on sale beginning on Tuesday, January 31 at Noon CT at Ticketmaster.com. Artist pre-sale begins Wednesday, February 1 at Noon CT, while general onsale begins on Friday, February 3 at 10 AM CT.  For more information visit TedeschiTrucksBand.com.

TTB holds a well-deserved reputation as one of the best live acts touring today. During their last Texas visit, critics hailed the band as “a roots-music tour de force” (Austin American Statesman) who “seamlessly showcases the genuine transformative power of music” (Houston Press), and praised Trucks as “one of the greatest slide guitarists to ever bend the strings.” (Houston Chronicle).  In addition, Tedeschi was recently celebrated by the Smithsonian Institute with the James Smithson Bicentennial Medal for her contributions to American culture and music.

I Am The Moon, TTB’s acclaimed fifth studio release was written while off the road during the pandemic.   I Am The Moon “explodes with joyful, powerful and positive music (Guitar Player)” and captures a prolific and collaborative songwriting period for the band.  Released in 2022, I Am The Moon includes four albums, I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The FallIV. Farewell and four companion films – delivering more than two hours of music that unfold across a robust tapestry of soul, rock, blues, funk, roots and Eastern explorations that propel the treasured American ensemble into new and thrilling creative territory.

Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi talk about I Am The Moon in the New York Times, on the Broken Record Podcast and cover stories of Relix and Guitar Player Magazine.  In addition, Derek Trucks spoke with Rick Beato for a far-reaching interview that delves into Derek’s one-of-kind techniques and deep-rooted jazz influences HERE and Susan spoke with Maggie Rose for the Salute the Songbird podcast HERE.

Tedeschi Trucks Band is Susan Tedeschi (guitar, vocals), Derek Trucks (guitar), Gabe Dixon (keyboards, vocals), Brandon Boone (bass), Tyler “Falcon” Greenwell (drums, percussion), Isaac Eady (drums, percussion), Mike Mattison (vocals, guitar), Mark Rivers (vocals), Alecia Chakour (vocals), Kebbi Williams (saxophone), Ephraim Owens (trumpet) and Elizabeth Lea (trombone).

Dickies Arena – Ft. Worth, TX
September 29, 2023
United Supermarkets Arena – Lubbock, TX
July 27, 2023
Dos Equis Pavilion – Dallas, TX
September 28, 2023
tour dates for luke bryan

Five-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan announced his 2023 touring plans today with the launch of the 36-city “Country On Tour” kicking off in Syracuse, NY, on June 15. 2023.

Luke Bryan’s “Country On Tour” will make a stop at United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, TX, on July 27, Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, TX, on September 28, and will finish the Texas leg of his tour off at Dickies Arena in Ft. Worth, TX, on September 29, 2023.

Produced by Live Nation, special guests throughout the tour include many of country music’s up and coming artists- Chayce Beckham, Tyler Braden, Ashley Cooke, Jackson Dean, Jon Langston, Conner Smith, Alana Springsteen, Hailey Whitters, and DJ RockTickets go on sale on Friday, Feb 3 at 10 a.m. at Lukebryan.com

Throughout his career Luke has invested in new artists by inviting them to join him on tour. Through the years dozens of ones to watch have been a part of his trailblazing tours including Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, Dylan Scott, Jon Langston, Little Big Town, Morgan Wallen, Lauren Alaina, Mitchell Tenpenny, Riley Green and many more. Cultivating and mentoring new talent is also the reason he loves judging on American Idol. He appreciates the journey and hard work it took to get him to where he is today, and he wants to open the door and lead the way by sharing his experiences as an artist and a businessman.

“Artists get into the business to make music and perform it for the fans,” shared Luke. “Leaving it all out on that stage is what it’s all about for me. I’m excited to support and have so many talented new artists along for the ride this year.  It’s one of the most rewarding parts of our job.

Ticket presale for Luke’s fan club members begins Tuesday, Jan 31 at 8 a.m. through Thursday, February 2 at 5 p.m. For details go HERE. Citi is the official card of the “Country On Tour.”  Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Wednesday, Feb 1 at 10 a.m. until Thursday, Feb 2 at 10 p.m. through the Citi Entertainment program. For complete presale details visit www.citientertainment.com.

During his illustrious and decorated career, Luke has worked diligently to build a highly active and loyal fan base one fan at a time. Much credit can be given to him and his team for creating unique concert opportunities for him to engage with and garner fans. No other country artist can boast multiple, highly successful events and tours like Luke including his Spring Break and Farm Tour tours, Crash My Playa events in Mexico (the eighth event sold-out just last week!), his on- going headline engagements at the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas and his yearly headline tours which have often included sold-out stadium shows. In fact, Luke has played for more than 13+ million fans since he began headlining in 2011.

Luke’s performances in previous tours have received applause from fans and media alike raving he is “electrifying,” “still the reigning king of modern country genre,” “cements his Entertainer of the Year status,” “his enduring everyman charm and more energy than the Energizer Bunny,” “the country music artist backs up his title as the ‘King of Country Music’ when he put on a performance of a lifetime,” “some of his best moments are connecting with the crowd between songs,” and “Bryan remains an imminently affable presence on stage prowess as a performer.”

The tour is aptly named after Luke’s 30th #1 single, “Country On,” which hit the top spot on the country singles charts just before Christmas 2022 and helped him amass a career tally of 56 total weeks at #1.

This Wednesday, Luke launches his 2023 headline dates at Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas:

·     February 2023: 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11

·     March 2023: 22, 24, 25, 29, 31

·     April 2023: 1

Ring in the new year in style with this prohibition era celebration that will last all evening, culminating in a champagne toast at midnight! Come dressed in period style and receive discounts on our specialty classic cocktails all evening.

Doors open all day with festivities starting around 7. Come get a cocktail and mingle with the stars. Catch a photo with them while listening to the cool music provided by the jazz trio on stage. Or perhaps make a suggestion to Steve one of your favorite “rat pack” renditions, and he may take the stage early for a few special request songs.

“Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett” will take to the stage around 8:30 singing all of your favorite songs. They will take a brief intermission to allow you to replenish your drinks at either of our beautiful bars. They will then continue on leading up to a New Year’s Toast to remember. The bars will stay open and will have a champagne toast ready for you at the appropriate time.

Tickets include champagne (or a sparkling nonalcoholic beverage) for your midnight toast!

Shania Twain’s “Queen of Me” Tour at Dickies Arena

Shania Twain’s “Queen of Me” Tour at Dickies Arena

SHANIA TWAIN ANNOUNCES SECOND LEG OF 2023 QUEEN OF ME GLOBAL TOUR DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND


Tickets On Sale Starting Friday, December 16th at
LiveNation.com

Today, five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning legend and the best-selling female artist in country music history Shania Twain announced the second leg of her 2023 Queen of Me Tour. Due to phenomenal demand following the wildly successful announcement of the first leg, Shania is adding 19 new fall dates to her highly anticipated tour. The tour is in support of Shania’s forthcoming album Queen of Me, out February 3, 2023 – pre-order/pre-save HERE.

Produced by Live Nation, leg two kicks off on Thursday, October 12th in San Antonio, TX at AT&T Center with stops across North America in Nashville, TN, Toronto, ON, Buffalo, NY, Edmonton, AB and more before wrapping up on Tuesday, November 14th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. Full routing for both legs of the tour is available below.

The Queen of Me Tour marks one of Shania Twain’s biggest tours to date with over 70 dates taking place across North America and Europe next year. This is also her first tour in nearly five years, following a highly successful residency run in Las Vegas.

TICKETS: Tickets for the newly added dates go on sale starting Friday, December 16th at LiveNation.com.

PRESALE: Citi is the official card of the North American leg of the Queen of Me Tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, December 13th at 10am local time until Thursday, December 15th at 10pm local time through the Citi Entertainment program. For complete presale details visit www.citientertainment.com.

Shania and Live Nation have announced that $1 of every ticket purchased to Shania’s “Queen Of Me” Tour will be donated to SKC. Established in 2010 by Shania Twain, SKC provides services that promote positive change in children’s lives in times of crises and economic hardship. SKC provides children with one-on-one consultations, academic support and group activities, as well as nutritious snacks and meal programs where needed, all while in the safe, confidence-building environment that is the Shania Kids Can Clubhouse. These children are learning the skills to cope with and overcome family hardships which, in turn, improves their ability to succeed in school. For more information about Shania Kids Can, please visit: www.shaniakidscan.com

This evening, Shania Twain will also receive the Music Icon award at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards. As the top-selling female country pop artist of all time, Twain is being honored for her record-breaking career which has spanned over four decades. With such enormous hits like “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!,” Twain has expertly bridged the gap between country and pop music, leaving an everlasting impact on the music industry and pop culture. The 2022 People’s Choice Awards will air on NBC and E! at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.

In addition to receiving the award, Twain will take the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits as well as her new song “Waking Up Dreaming” off her forthcoming sixth album ‘Queen of Me,’ set for release on February 3, 2023 via Republic Records. It will mark her first return to the PCAs stage since 2005, when she took home the award for Favorite Country Female Singer.
