They say everything is bigger in Texas and that rings true for Miranda Lambert’s long-awaited return to the stage.
The superstar is heading back to her home state for a three-night concert event at Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky tonk.
“First concert in over a year. Texas, I can’t wait to come home,” Lambert announced on social media on Monday morning (Feb. 8).

Lambert is set to perform three consecutive concerts at Billy Bob’s beginning Thursday, April 22 and running through Saturday, April 24. Tickets range from $50 – $200 plus fees and taxes and will be available to the general public beginning on Friday, Feb. 12 at 10 am CT. Members of Lambert’s fan club will receive early access to purchase tickets on Wednesday, Feb. 10.
Lambert promises her return to the stage will be done “safely and right” and that the venue will be open for a reduced capacity audience.
The “Settling Down” singer was in the midst of her Wildcard Tour when everything shut down in early 2020 due to the global health crisis. Though she has participated in a handful of prerecorded and livestream performances, this marks her first full concert since her tour came to a halt.
