Menu of this month's listings, stories and columns

We researched the status of all the major concerts and other big events that are still coming up, including all the new dates for events that were postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis. 

Right now we have events beginning in early May. This list was compiled just before El Paso City Council extended its closure orders. So it appeares unlikely there will be any events through mid-May. What is currently shown below was listed as scheduled on official sites (Ticketmaster, UTEP Special  Events, Pan Am Center, etc.).

Listed at the bottom are events that were postponed but no new dates have been announced; and also events that were simply cancelled.

For event tickets sold through Ticketmaster, call 1-800-745-3000 or go to ticketmaster.com.
