We love seeing big-name stars in smaller performance spaces. One of our all-time favorite concerts was Annie Lennox at SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium because it seemed so up-close-and-personal, yet otherworldly all at once.
That’s why we love The Statler Ballroom as a venue. It’s big enough for spectacle, yet feels so much more intimate.
On the last Saturday of March, bisexual British singer Rita Ora takes the stage for an evening of pop hits galore. She holds the record for the most top 10 singles of any British female artist in the UK, which we find super impressive.
Tickets for the show start at $100 and there’s pretty much not a bad seat in the house of the space where the Jackson Five, Frank Sinatra, and Cher once graced the historic stage back in the day.
Snag your tickets while you can because that’s the other thing about cozy venues: There aren’t a gazillion seats.
Saturday, March 30
Tickets: $100 to $875
