106.1 KISS FM annual holiday Jingle Ball puts Dallas-Fort Worth on its nice list
The annual Jingle Ball Tour is coming to Dallas on November 29, with headliner Meghan Trainor and an appearance by '90s boy band the Backstreet Boys.
Dallas will be the opening date on a 12-city tour that also includes Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. The lineup varies by city. Unlike Los Angeles or New York, Dallas will not get Justin Bieber. The tour ends on December 18 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Each year, iHeartMedia stations across the country host Jingle Ball concerts in select cities, with performances by the year's most iconic recording artists and emerging talent.
"What started as a local holiday concert in New York over 20 years ago, has become a nationwide holiday music tour, radio broadcast, and CW Network telecast," says iHeart president John Sykes in a release.
iHeart will broadcast the December 9 show in New York on iHeartRadio CHR stations and as a live video stream on CWTV.com and within the CW app, beginning at 8:30 pm ET. The event will also be featured in a TV special on The CW Network on December 15.
Tickets range from $51 to $156 and go on sale on October 17. Here's the full lineup:
