Once upon a time, I was told that there would be no "heavy metal" at Buddy Holly Hall. While Halestorm is certainly not Cannibal Corpse, I still find this booking very surprising.

Halestorm will be at the Buddy Holly Hall on October 2nd, 2022 with special guests The Warning and New Years Day.

There will be a presale on Thursday, June 9th, with tickets going on sale to the general public Friday, June 10th. THE PRESALE CODE IS 22HALESTORM.

There certainly seems to be a theme here...or is there? I guess we wouldn’t say anything if these were all male-led bands, but at this point it’s still unusual, but welcome, that these are all female-led units. In the case of The Warning, it’s all females. I think I should also mention that this should be a very special show because Halestorm played their first-ever tour date as a band right here in good ol' Lubbock, Texas. I still remember Lzzy Hale skipping up the ramp at the Lone Star Amphitheater for her interview.

The timing of this announcement is impeccable, as Halestorm has the no. 1 rock song in the nation at this very minute with "The Steeple." This is their sixth no. 1 song, and their thirteenth top 10 U.S. track.

There will be a presale this Thursday, please check back here for updated details and download our app to get the presale code sent right to your phone. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday. I would remind you that Buddy Holly Hall has just a little over 2,000 seats, so you may not want to delay on buying tickets for this one. Seating is, of course, reserved.

Lubbock, TX – HALESTORM will be performing in concert at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences on October 2, 2022 at 7 p.m. Since their inception in 1998, Halestorm have toured extensively with a diverse variety of artists, including Eric Church, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, ZZ Top and Evanescence. They’ve played around 2,500 dates around the world to date and performed at festivals including Taste of Chaos and Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. The band scored a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013, and Lzzy was named the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in 2016. Both Halestorm and The Strange Case of… were certified Gold, further evidencing Halestorm’s massively supportive fanbase. Halestorm have also made history: “Love Bites (So Do I),” the hit single from The Strange Case of… ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio in the U.S., making Halestorm the firstever female-fronted group to earn the top spot on the format. Today HALESTORM exists as a beacon of hope and inspiration for musicians, particularly female musicians who want to brave the challenges of the music industry. Lzzy has been a pioneer in rock and proven that women have a place on the stage. Every night on tour, women – and men – in the audience can look to her and realize they too have the power to carve out their own path. Younger musicians admire her the same way she grew up admiring artists like Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks. “This music chose us and we’re just hanging on,” Lzzy says. “Our greatest accomplishment is that we’ve been the same members for over 15 years, and we’re continuing to make and release music.” Tickets range in price from $39.50 to $79.50 plus taxes and fees and go on sale to the public on Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m. (CT). Tickets are available online at buddyhollyhall.com, by calling ETIX at 1-800-514-3849 and at the venue box office at 1300 Mac Davis Lane, Lubbock, TX 79401, Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
