At the heart of the City’s live music scene is one of Mesquite’s most revered, raved-about, and long-standing venues: The Mesquite Arena
. Built in 1986, the arena has been a fun-filled stalwart in the area for more than three decades. A wide array of award-winning musical acts with an equally broad mix of genres have all come to the City. Notable past performers include country music all-stars, Mark Chesnutt, and Keith Sweat. While Motown masterminds The Temptations and The Four Tops
return later this year. In terms of genres, there’s been everything under the Texas sun, including country, funk, Latin music, classic rock, and even R&B and hip-hop at the Hip-Hop Rodeo
(a real Texas treat).
As you can see, you have plenty of options for live music, and those options are only getting better.
