Country star and multiplatinum artist Gary Allan will make a stop in Fort Wayne on Thursday, Feb. 9, for a performance at The Clyde. 

Allan is out on a nationwide celebration of his critically acclaimed 10th studio album Ruthless. The album landed at No. 8 on the Top Country Albums chart and earned immediate praise for showcasing what Allan does best: edgy, impassioned vocals and clever, thoughtful lyrics. 

Some of you may recall Allan’s memorable Country Fest performance in 2013 when he headlined a Parkview Field event along with Craig Morgan, Love and Theft, Bill Gentry, and others. Now, he returns for a night of boot scootin’ action at The Clyde. 

General admission tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m. at, over the phone at (800) 514-3849, or in person at The Clyde box office and Sweetwater Sound.

Static Fly opening for AC/DC tribute at Clyde

Speaking of The Clyde, local rock/metal stalwarts Static Fly are set to bring their talents to the big stage on Saturday, Nov. 26, at 7 p.m. 

That evening, they will be the opening act for Thunderstruck: America’s AC/DC Tribute, making for a solid one-two punch of rock. 

With that being said, plan on leaving your pre-show festivities a little early and arriving on time since you won’t want to miss Static Fly. 

Brewery touring act comes to Trubble

Dennis & Brad’s Great Brewery Tour comes to Trubble Brewing on Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. 

Dennis O’Hagan and Brad Wehlitz have been touring the U.S., playing craft breweries since 2018. Both artists are multi-instrumentalists and will be trading off on guitar, bass, mandolin, lap steel, bouzouki, harp, and percussion. They perform their own music, traditional Americana and Celtic tunes, punk folk, and eclectic covers that you don’t expect to hear but will love. You will probably even hear tales of their travels playing nearly 400 craft breweries throughout the U.S. 

In any event, it will be an evening of good brews, tasty food, and entertaining music. 

Piere’s hosting Midget Wrestling

Piere’s is proving they are all about the entertainment with the recent booking of MicroMania Midget Wrestling on Friday, Jan. 27. 

These athletes might be short in stature but are giants in the world of entertainment and will be sure to have you on your feet. 

This event is all ages with bell time at 8:30 p.m. Tickets available via or in person at all Wooden Nickel locations and Neat Neat Neat Records.
