Dickies Arena has made Billboard! No, the arena has not recorded a danceable pop number with a rockin’ bassline, but it has made the list of 20 of the most notable new or refurbished facilities in North America.
According to Billboard:
“It’s not unusual for touring artists to compete with sporting events for venues. But at the new Dickies Arena, due to open in the fifth-largest city in Texas in November, only one nonmusical anchor tenant has a hold on dates: the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, held mid-January to early February. Concert dates are otherwise wide open, with one exception: Rodeo rider and Texas superstar George Strait is confirmed to perform on Nov. 22.”
Other places on the list include Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, Entertainment and Sports Arena in Washington, D.C. and Levitt Pavilion in Denver.
