Iconic rock stars, a beloved story and world-class athletes are in the spotlight this summer in Lubbock, Texas! From celebrating the 85th birthday of Lubbock’s favorite son, Buddy Holly, and rocking out at the United Supermarkets Arena to Journey to cheering on the triathletes and giving a standing ovation to the performers at The Buddy Holly Hall, the culture of the “Hub City” is on center stage for all to experience this summer. 

Any Way You Want It, Journey invites all to Don’t Stop Believin’ on July 30 at the United Supermarkets Arena. The perfect date night with your significant other or activity with dad, jam out to the band’s greatest hits! 

A night out with the whole family, Anastasia is on a journey to Lubbock at last! Inspired by the beloved films, this new musical offers the audience an adventure-filled performance at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences. 

Rave On at the 85th birthday celebration for Buddy Holly with Grammy-winning superstar Peter Frampton, Duane Eddy and special guests at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences! 

This isn’t our first rodeo… or triathlon! The IRONMAN 70.3 Lubbock is the longest running IRONMAN 70.3 race in Texas. Tri-athletes from across the country meet in the “Hub City” to swim a 1.2-mile lap in Historic Dunbar Lake, bike the 56-mile flat and fast course and finish with a 13.1-mile run around the beautiful Texas Tech University. Cheer on your favorite racers as they cross the finish line.
