March 9 – 12….Cirque du Soleil - Making it's Lubbock debut with its newest touring arena show, Cirque du Soleil presents “OVO.” - OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual. The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 12 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning Flying Act in which a group of scarabs soar high above the stage, from both edges to the middle landing on a platform. The company has brought wonder and delight to more than 160 million spectators in more than 400 cities on six continents. For more information about Cirque du Soleil, visit Tickets for the general public are on sale NOW at Child tickets start at $25 (subject to change).

March 10….Cactus Theater presents: Texas Music Icon Gary P Nunn with special guest Whitney Rose - To say that Gary P. Nunn has been TAKING TEXAS TO THE COUNTRY and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now would be an understatement...because Nunn has spent that entire time establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond. His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.” In addition to the many gold albums on which he has played and/or written and published songs, Nunn has earned a number of notable awards and honors over the years. He was named an Official Ambassador to the World by Texas Governor Mark White, and years later Governor Rick Perry also declared him an Ambassador of Texas Music. In 2004, he was inducted into the Texas Hall of Fame, and he is also honored in the West Texas Walk of Fame in Lubbock. Whitney Rose may be a native Canadian, but the sound the young singer-songwriter has crafted for herself is entirely Texan twang. On January 27th, Rose released the new EP "South Texas Suite". A collection of six songs, the project is the follow-up to last year's "Heartbreaker of the Year", produced by Raul Malo of the Mavericks. Songs like lead single "My Boots" and the south-of-the-border tribute "Three Minute Love Affair," a paean to the Lone Star State's dance halls, bristle with local flavor. Other songs include the wistful "Lookin' Back on Luckenbach" and "Blue Bonnets," a soaring slice of Fifties ear candy that calls to mind the Skyliners and Dion and the Belmonts. Tickets only $25/$20 for reserved floor seats; $15 for standard balcony. Box office open Mon-Fri: 3:00-5:30 pm, One hour before show on Sat /Sun. Call (806) 762-3233 or order online at Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave: 7:30 p.m.
