Levitt Pavilion Arlington’s 2022 Fall Concert Series Kickoffs Sept. 2
The Levitt Pavilion’s fall season will get underway Friday, Sept. 2, 2022 with a weekend of concerts featuring Grammy-winning Brave Combo, Texas music legend Ray Wylie Hubbard, and The New Respects, pop-rock-and–soul artists who are making a Texas stop as part of their national Levitt Foundation tour.
Other season highlights include a Hispanic Heritage Celebration (Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022), a concert celebrating North Texas Giving Day (Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022); the Do Good Fest (Friday, Oct. 7, 2022 benefiting The Parkland Foundation and featuring hip hop bluegrass artists Gangstagrass); and two Levitt fundraiser concerts headlined by country hit-maker Chase Rice (with guests The Scooter Brown Band and Palmer Anthony, happening on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022) and KC and The Sunshine Band (with Retrophonics, happening on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022).
Additional artists set to appear this fall include Grammy and CMA-nominated Jack Ingram (Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022) and The Zeppelin Project (Friday, Oct. 14, 2022). Once the fall season wraps, the Levitt team will immediately begin dreaming about how to produce more concerts, cultural events and festivals for the community in 2023; while closing out the year with holiday events and hosting the lighting of the Christmas tree after the Holiday Lights Parade. The Levitt Center is available year round for special event rentals. Click here to find out more about the Levitt’s 2022 fall season.
All Levitt shows and community celebrations are free, with the exception of ticketed fundraiser concerts (Chase Rice and KC and The Sunshine Band—prices for these shows begin at around $45). The season sponsors are Baylor Scott & White Orthopedic and Spine Hospital – Arlington, and the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation. Guests for all shows are encouraged to consider making a donation on site in support of the Levitt’s free outdoor music series, offered annually.
“This is going to be an especially robust fall season, featuring a number of popular artists and community celebrations,” said Letatia Teykl, the venue’s executive director. “We suggest guests arrive early for all events, and to purchase tickets for the fundraiser concerts as soon as they can.”
“Arlington’s live music scene is alive and well, thanks to the support of our partners, stakeholders, and Levitt friends and fans,” she added. “We’re excited to bring our community another great run of genre-diverse music performed by both well-known and emerging artists.”
