English rock singer Peter Gabriel has added 13 new North American cities to his worldwide "i/o - The Tour," including a stop at Austin's Moody Center on Thursday, October 18.

The massive tour, Gabriel's first solo jaunt since the "Back to Front Tour" that took place from late 2012 to early 2014, kicks off in Krakow, Poland on May 18. The Austin concert will be one of the three final dates on the 48-city tour, alongside Dallas on October 19 and Houston on October 21.

The tour is in support of the new album, i/o, Gabriel's first new release since 2011. Although an exact date for the release has not been announced, new music from the album is being released on the full moon of each month in 2023; the now-available song for March is called "Playing For Time."

On the tour, fans will get to see Gabriel playing new material from the new album, as well as hits, fan favorites, and the unexpected. Gabriel will be joined by regular bandmates Tony Levin, David Rhodes, and Manu Katché.

Gabriel got his start as the original lead singer of the band Genesis, with which he released six albums in the early 1970s. He left for a solo career in 1975, releasing his first album in 1977. The pinnacle of his career came with the 1986 album So, which contained the indelible hits "Sledgehammer," "In Your Eyes," and "Don't Give Up" with Kate Bush.

The general onsale for the newly added shows will start on Friday, March 24 at 10 am at LiveNation.com. Fans will have access to a special presale through Peter’s Fan Club mailing list, starting on Tuesday, March 21.

Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets in the U.S. beginning on Wednesday, March 22 at 10 am until Thursday, March 23 at 6 pm through the Citi Entertainment program.

Fans can also purchase VIP packages, which may include premium tickets, access to the pre-show lounge, limited edition gift items, and more

Chris Stapleton adds 2 Texas stops to his all-American tour this fall

Just a Traveler

As if hosting the upcoming CMT awards were not exciting enough, Austin country music fans will rejoice at the news that Chris Stapleton is adding two Texas shows to his “All-American Road Show" this fall. The eight-time Grammy Award-winning country music superstar (who also has 15 CMA and 10 ACM awards under his belt) will stop in San Antonio and Austin in October.

Stapleton will show San Antonio some love at the AT&T Center on October 19, 2023, before heading to Austin's Moody Center on October 20, 2023. Stapleton will appear with special guests Nikki Lane and CMT-nominated Charley Crockett. The two new Texas dates are in addition to his originally posted stop at Corpus Christi's AmericanBank Center Arena on October 12, 2023.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, March 24, at 10 am. Stapleton’s fan club will have early access to tickets and VIP packages with pre-sale starting on Tuesday, March 21, at 10 am through Thursday, March 23, at 10 pm. As the official card of Chris Stapleton’s “All-American Road Show” 2023 tour, Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets starting on Tuesday, March 21, at 10 am until Thursday, March 23, at 10 pm. For complete pre-sale details visit citientertainment.com.

In addition to the new “All-American Road Show” dates, Stapleton will headline both RodeoHouston on March 16 and Stagecoach Music Festival on April 30 and will join George Strait for a series of stadium shows with special guests Little Big Town. He will also perform at UTEP Don Haskins Center in El Paso, TX, on April 26, 2023.

The Kentucky-born artist is one of the country’s most respected and beloved musicians. He was recently named the CMA Male Vocalist of the Year for the sixth time, setting the record for most wins ever in the category. Additionally, his most recent album, Starting Over, won Best Country Album at the 67th Annual Grammy's, as well as earning Album of the Year honors at both the 54th Annual CMA Awards and 56th ACM Awards. The record follows Stapleton’s pair of Platinum-certified releases from 2017, From A Room: Volume 1 and From A Room: Volume 2, as well as his x5 Platinum breakthrough solo debut album, Traveller.

In addition to his work as a musician, Stapleton and his wife, Morgane, are founders of the Outlaw State of Kind charitable fund, which supports a variety of causes that are close to their heart. Most recently, their “Kentucky Rising” concert last fall raised over $2.8 million to support flood relief in Eastern Kentucky.

Glam rock greats visit Austin before kissing touring goodbye

FOR THE LAST TIME

Update: A previous version of this story stated that KISS had never played in Austin. It is not the first Austin stop; Rather, Austin is the first stop on the tour. Readers commented that they had seen the band at the Frank C. Erwin Jr. Center. Of course, unofficial records show that the band has played in Austin several times in its long history.

---

These Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legends are going out with a bang. Kiss (stylized KISS) announced dates for the final shows of their last-ever tour, "The End of the Road," with Austin as their only Texas stop.

The band will be performing at the Moody Center on October 29. Other stops on the tour include California, Washington, Indiana, and several cities in Canada before ending the tour where it all began, with two back-to-back December shows in New York City.

“Kiss was born in New York City," said the band in a statement. "On 23rd Street. Half a century ago. It will be a privilege and honor to finish touring at Madison Square Garden, 10 blocks and 50 years from where we first started.”

Kiss has a deep history in the rock and roll industry. It rose to fame in the 1970s for the performers' theatrical stage presence, face paint, pyrotechnics, and costumes. They’re most well known as being one of the most influential rock bands in the world with 14 Platinum albums and over 100 million record sales.

The 2023 North America tour dates include:

  • October 29 – Moody Center in Austin
  • November 1 – Acrisure Arena in Palm Springs, California
  • November 3 – Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles

Duran Duran looks to the future with expansive tour coming to Austin

the notorious DD

English new wave band Duran Duran has made plans for an expansive version of "The Future Past Tour" in 2023, which include a stop at Austin's Moody Center on June 6.

They will visit 26 cities across North America over the course of four months, starting on May 27 at a festival in Napa Valley, California. In addition to the Austin stop, they will also play in Houston on June 9 and Dallas on June 10.

The longer arena tour is in contrast to their 2022 tour, which only went to 11 cities, including a lone Texas stop in Fort Worth. This is the band's first time back in the Austin area since they played the Germania Insurance Ampitheater in 2016.

As on last year's tour, Duran Duran will be showcasing their 2021 album, also called Future Past. They'll also be bringing back Nile Rodgers & CHIC as special guests, and this time around, they'll have English pop rock band Bastille along for the ride.

In addition to touring for Future Past, their best-selling album in almost 20 years, 2022 was a banner year for Duran Duran, as they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a no-brainer given their long and successful career.

"It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, and introducing the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers," said lead singer Simon Le Bon in a statement. "We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago."

The "Future Past Tour" artist pre-sale will begin at 10 am on Monday, February 13; members (and those who wish to join) can go to duranduran.com and click the MEMBERS tab for more details.

Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning February 13 at 2 pm until Wednesday, February 15 at 10 pm through the Citi Entertainment program.

Additional pre-sales will be added on February 14 and will end on Wednesday, February 15 at 10 pm. Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting on Thursday, February 16 at 10 am.

Popular restaurant in Austin suburb brings spinoff bar and live music to Leander

Down the Rabbit Hole

A new bar is hopping into a growing Austin suburb: After the success of opening the Lucky Rabbit in the Lake Travis area last year, Matt Morcher, Sandra Cleveland, and Matt and Shelly Delahoussaye are set to open a new spinoff neighborhood bar in Leander next week.

Located located in the San Gabriel Ridge shopping center at 2080 N. US-183 unit 145, The Rabbit Hole will open on Friday, March 31, starting at 2 pm. The team will celebrate with a grand opening party, featuring live music by Luke Daniel from 6-9 pm and Carter Whitaker from 9 pm - midnight. A special time-related happy hour will offer new specials for guests to enjoy at the top of every hour.

The name is, of course, a small nod to The Lucky Rabbit, but also an invitation to "go down the rabbit hole” — whether with friends and family or passing time solo. The bar will serve high quality cocktails in a swanky space, bringing in live music acts most weekend nights for locals to enjoy.

The 68-seat interior play on the theme of time and the trippy experience of going down the rabbit hole, featuring exposed brick walls with murals of clock-like rabbits and gears painted by local artist Sarah Blankenship, along with a variety of light fixtures featuring Edison-style bulbs and gears that light the space.

The drink menu carries that theme through its featured cocktails, with rabbit names like Bug’s Old Fashioned (rye, demerara, bitters, orange, luxardo cherry); the 24 Carrot Gold (vodka, triple sec, blood orange, lime, bitters); and the Bubbly Bunny (gin, lavender, lemon, prosecco). Perfect as we head into hotter temperatures, frozen drink option include traditional and flavored margaritas, the Hot Hare (Spicy Mango, Chamoy, Tajin rim), or the Perky Bunny (Red Bull floater, Pop Rocks rim). Local beer and wine is also available, as well as bar snacks. Heartier food options will also be available to order from neighboring restaurants, Sabino’s Pizza Pub and Ah Thinh Asian Cuisine.

Morcher and Cleveland are veterans in the industry with a big heart for the local community:

“Sandra and I live in the area, and we often found ourselves looking for a nearby neighborhood bar to hang out in," said Morcher via release. "We saw this space, and felt that there was great potential to make it into a fun local spot — so we just decided to create one ourselves! We’re excited to be bringing this to an underserved area here in Leander, Liberty Hill and beyond. It was tough to find a place out here with affordable craft cocktails, great service, and live music on the weekends. We’re thrilled to be able to bring that to our community.”
