5 Must-see concerts coming to Dallas-Fort Worth


    Check out these five hot concerts coming to the Dallas-Fort Worth area this spring.

    2014 is shaping up to be one of the best years for concerts. Since TCU is located in the heart of the Metroplex, we are able to enjoy an array of concerts. From headline-making DJs at the South Side Ballroom to country artists at Billy Bob’s to rock bands at the House of Blues, the next few weeks will offer up a plethora of talented artists making their way to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    Featured below are five unique acts that you cannot afford to miss.

    1. Disclosure

    The electronic duo that made waves with their debut album last year is bringing their thumping beats to the House of Blues. The album, Settle, was ranked in the top 20 albums of 2013 by Rolling Stone and was the highest ranking EDM (electronic-dance music) album. Disclosure, already a sensation in the United Kingdom, is now making their mark in the United States.
