Steve Trevino: The Relatable Tour
Saturday, Aug. 27, 8 p.m.
American Bank Center Selena Auditorium

Finding his way from a Hispanic upbringing in a small South Texas town to living his dream in Hollywood, Steve Treviño has infused his comedy with a “Tex-Mex” sensibility. However, as a performer, he has a uniquely American voice that transcends anything about ethnicity, making him universally relatable.

Outside of being a national headliner, Treviño has made memorable appearances on “The Late Late Show,” “Comics Unleashed” and “BET Comic View,” among others. He also wrote on “Mind of Mencia” and produced and wrote on rapper Pit Bull’s “La Esquina.” Treviño landed in the Nielsen Top 20, with his first Showtime comedy special, “Grandpa Joe’s Son.” His second special, “Relatable,” can currently be seen on Netflix.

Miranda Lambert: Keeper of the Flame Tour (with special guest Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne)
Thursday, Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m.
American Bank Center Arena

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert is coming to the American Bank Center Arena on Sept. 15, and she is bringing some friends along for the party! Miranda Lambert is the reigning seven-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year.

“Automatic,” the first single off of Lambert’s fifth studio album, “Platinum,” was Lambert’s highest-charting first-week single to date, and it won CMA and ACM “Song of the Year.” Her duet with Carrie Underwood, the album’s second single, “Somethin’ Bad,” has been certified as an RIAA Platinum Digital Single. “Platinum” made history when it debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making Lambert the first country artist in the history of the chart to have each of her five albums debut at No. 1.

In addition to her award-winning music, she dedicates much of her time to her MuttNation Foundation, an organization that supports shelters and helps pets find a forever home.

Ron White with Special Guest Josh Blue
Friday, Sept. 23, 8 p.m.
American Bank Center Selena Auditorium

Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, but now as a chart-topping, Grammy-nominated comedian and a feature film actor, White has established himself as a star in his own right. White has always been a classic storyteller. His stories relay tales from his real life, ranging from growing up in a small town in Texas to sharing stories of his daily life to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America.

Josh Blue exploded onto the national comedy scene by capturing the attention and endearment of the country as the winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Having already established himself as one of the most sought-after comedians on the college circuit, his weekly appearances on “Last Comic” in summer 2006 expanded his fan base exponentially.

Most recently, Blue debuted a one-hour Showtime special, “Sticky Change.” The special is currently available on Netflix. He has appeared twice on “Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops” on CMT, and he recently made his late-night television debut on “The Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”
