In 2016, Smooth R&B 105.7 presented their first annual Smooth Holiday Groove concert with Keith Sweat and KEM. This year, the radio station will present the Smooth Holiday Groove II concert and this time around Xscape, Monica and Tamar Braxton will headline the holiday show. The event will take place at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie on Dec. 13 and tickets go on sale on Sept. 22 at 10 a.m. CST through AXS (Tickets).
The Smooth Holiday Groove II is also part of The Great Xscape Tour, a 22-date tour that will see them hitting major cities including Washington, DC (Tickets), Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Dallas. The band is enjoying their reunion after 20 years and the tour will stretch from November until January.
While the band only had three albums released, all three were platinum efforts and Top 10 hits on the R&B charts. They also had three No. 1 singles, with “Just Kickin’ It,” “Understanding” and “Who Can I Run To.” While they are heading out on tour now, there is no album in the works but Xscape is planning a TV show to highlight their upcoming tour.
The Dallas holiday concert is one of just two stops in the state of Texas. After the Dallas show on Dec. 13, the band will head to Chicago, St. Louis and Columbus, before coming back to Texas for a show in Houston on Dec. 27.
Tickets for the Smooth Holiday Groove II concert go on sale on Sept. 22 at AXS. Prices for the Dec. 13 concert at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie run from $35 up to $125. Xscape is the headliner for this year’s holiday concert with Monica and Tamar Braxton as the opening acts.
