After an interesting back-and-forth last month with the city of DallasT-Pain reschedules and moves its Road to Wisconsin tour to North Texas.
Previously scheduled for May 18 at The Factory in Deep Ellum, the concert will now take place at the Texas Trust CU Theater on June 24 in Grand Prairie.
Last month, the rapper posted a video wondering why Dallas ticket sales were lower than he had expected.
“Dallas, what are you doing?” I have worn cowboy hats several times. I raised horses. I feel like part of the city, you know? I’ve worn a cowboy hat or two, you know what I mean? Both regular cowboy and Dallas Cowboys, I’ve done both! WTF!” Pain said in a now-viral TikTok.
Pain’s video caught the attention of Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, who assured Pain that the area was safe, despite Pain’s concerns and comments from fans on Twitter. Mayor Johnson even tagged Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia on Twitter to help T-Pain answer any questions he had.
“Dallas is the only Top 10 city in the United States where violent crime dropped last year and overall violent crime dropped again this year,” Mayor Johnson tweeted. “So you and your spectators should feel safe here.”
Yet despite a drop in crime over the past year, Depp Ellum has witnessed several shootings in recent months, forcing the “Buy U a Drank” rapper to move the show to Grand Prairie.
