Music mania: 12 can’t-miss September concerts
From Wu-Tang to The Weeknd and a little bit of Ben Harper.
After the summer live music lull, fall touring season is finally here, and in a big way! September is absolutely stacked with concerts. From rock and pop to hip-hop and electronica, you’re sure to find more than one show that fits your fancy. Here are 12 that we are looking forward to this month.
Hanson (September 16): Let nostalgia take over when the Hanson brothers visit House of Blues, supported by singer/songwriter Paul McDonald. Did you hear they have a new craft beer out called — yes — Mmmhops!
Mumford & Sons (September 18): Folk sweethearts Mumford & Sons come through to Gexa Energy Pavilion for a make-up show. The band canceled its show in June when the bass player needed emergency surgery to remove blood clot on his brain. (Sold out.)
Depeche Mode (September 20): Riding high on the release of its 13th studio album Delta Machine, English trio Depeche Mode turns Gexa Energy Pavilion into a synthesizer dance party, supported by electro-heavy Crystal Castles.
Breakaway Festival (September 21): FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco will be bumping when Wu-Tang Clan (hip-hop), Matt & Kim (indie) and Big Gigantic (electronic), among others take over for this inaugural festival.
Imagine Dragons (September 27 & 28): The single, “It’s Time,” skyrocketed this band to mainstream fame, and it sequentially sold out the House of Blues in February as well as two nights this fall at South Side Ballroom. Alt-rockers The Neighbourhood open the show on September 28.Follow @tineywristwatch
