 WEATHER UPDATE for June 27:

Due to a strong thunderstorm that soaked the grounds and temporarily knocked out power, the June 27 performance will be delayed one hour and moved inside to Rosine Hall at the Dallas Arboretum. Please note the following changes:

  • Doors will now open at 7pm. Jason Elmore is expected to go on at 8pm and Nikki Lane at 9pm.
  • When you arrive tonight, please park at the Dallas Arboretum’s Main Parking Lot (Gate 1) located on Garland and Whittier Ave. The KXT check-in table will be located outside the hall. See map below.
  • The show will take place inside and seating will be on a carpeted floor. Blankets and towels are welcome. Lawn chairs will not be permitted as they may obstruct the view of other patrons. Limited seating will be available.
  • This show is still BYOB. Guests are welcome to bring their own food, picnic baskets, coolers and drinks. No food will be provided on-site or inside the hall.
