10 Entertaining Live Events Coming to Lubbock’s New Buddy Holly Hall
After an entire year with very few live events, even a homebody like myself is ready to get out there and mingle with the masses. Well, at least 2,200 of my friends from Lubbock.
There are a lot of shows coming up that have my interest, along with several others that are just flat-out cool to see in Lubbock, Texas.
For one, I didn't even know that Foreigner was still together and touring. They are! And they're bringing their show to Lubbock. There's also something called Postmodern Jukebox, An Officer and a Gentleman the Musical, Jersey Boys, The Nutcracker and so much more.
Even with the calendar filling up over at the Buddy Holly Hall it still seems like they are adding new shows every week with both Tom Segura and Straight No Chaser announcing Lubbock dates this week.
Obviously, there are a ton of great shows coming up, but here are 10 of the biggest, including Alton Brown, who apparently has a live show, and The Price is Right Live.
10 More Exciting Shows Coming to Lubbock's Buddy Holly Hall
Beyond those 10, there are endless possibilities out there for Buddy Holly Hall to book next. John Mulaney is back working and will probably be on tour soon, along with Dave Chappelle, Bill Burr, Nate Bargatze, Taylor Tomlinson, Ali Wong and the list goes on.
The stand-up comedy world is the perfect reintroduction to being in a crowd, post COVID-19. It's calm, there's no bumping into randos trying to push to the front. There won't be any crazy fanboys...unless Bert Kreischer takes his shirt off.
It's also a great opportunity for Lubbock's local comedians to take the stage as openers or warm-up acts, like Lubbock's very own Chrissy Covington. Beyond comedy, The Book of Mormon, Rock of Ages, or Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would all be enjoyable to varying degrees of people.
The point is, Lubbock has long since been thought of as a place where nothing happens. If it's not a gigantic show that can fill up the United Supermarkets Arena or a smaller show that can fit at a place like Jake's Backroom, it just wasn't coming to Lubbock.
The Buddy Holly Hall has fixed that hole. Now, the sky's the limit on what the world of entertainment can fill that hole with.
