Dallas Arboretum’s Cool Thursdays Concert Series

Dallas Arboretum Concert
The Dallas Arboretum’s Cool Thursdays Concert Series presents Majesty of Rock, a tribute to Styx and Journey on April 26 for the first time. The following Thursday, the Arboretum welcomes fan favorite Johnny Cash tribute band Walk the Line on May 3.

Enjoy Dallas’ only concert series overlooking the picturesque White Rock Lake on the award-winning Martin Rutchik Concert Stage & Lawn.

Majesty of Rock enjoyed performing their tribute to Journey; however, frontman John D’Agostino also loved another American supergroup, Styx. Turns out the other band members were also huge Styx fans, so they began adding some of Styx’s best tunes to their already expansive repertoire of Journey material. The audience response was so positive, they formed the concert extravaganza, Majesty of Rock.

Walk the Line has performed throughout the United States and Europe for years – the sights and sounds resemble the Johnny Cash country fans fell in love with years ago. It is a must-see for any Johnny Cash fan.

Upcoming concerts

The gardens are also open to stroll through before the concert to enjoy the breathtaking floral displays and new summer exhibit, Wind Sculptures in Motion: The Kinetic Art of Lyman Whitaker presented by Reliant.
