The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas will begin opening new restaurants and entertainment venues on a weekly basis beginning Labor Day weekend, culminating in a grand opening celebration Dec. 8-10.
The first venue to open will be The Pavilion, a groundbreaking convertible indoor/outdoor, state-of-the-art concert venue that can host 2,500 guests in an intimate theater setting, 4,000 guests for an indoor upscale arena experience or expand into a boutique, indoor/outdoor open-air pavilion for 8,000 guests. Inaugural performances will kick-off Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 with sold-out shows featuring comedian Dave Chappelle. Opening weekend continues with Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior World Tour 2017 on Sept. 2. Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy will be joined by The Marshall Tucker Band and Eddie Money for Jeff and Larry’s Backyard BBQ on Sept. 3, and the weekend will close out with Lifehouse and Switchfoot: Looking for Summer Tour on September 4. The Pavilion is booked, managed and operated by Live Nation, the world’s largest concert promoter.
“The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas has long been anticipated by Irving residents and surrounding communities and we are excited to be entering the final stages of construction and fulfilling their dream,” said ARK Group President Noah Lazes. “The first restaurants and entertainment venues will begin opening in the weeks following the Labor Day weekend performances at The Pavilion and most of the 25 venues will be open by the end of this year. As music fills the air and venues begin welcoming guests to this unique and fun-filled environment, The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas will spring to life. We look forward to celebrating all the hard work poured into this project by so many, including the City of Irving, Gensler, Live Nation, Skanska, SunTrust Bank, our fantastic tenants, and most importantly, the residents of Irving.”
