Starplex is a great venue for concerts. Most recently it was called Gexa but it's the same pavillion at Fair Park. With a large stage and two screens to supplement viewing, there are plenty of ways to see your favorite artist. I believe the worst...More

A bunch of friends descended on Dallas for the Depeche Mode concert on Sept. 22, 2017. It was still 89 degrees and wicked humid at 8:30pm. After the opening act left the stage, they turned the giant, overhead fans off. 20,000+ people crammed in there...More

I love this place. Seating reasonable. Back of the building is open to grass area. Anyway the sound there is awesome. Saw Shinedown Staind Godsmack and little band called Adelitas Way all great. Couldn't ask for better concert experiences.

This venue has been renamed the Starplex Pavillion. This place is great for concerts. Lots of newly installed seats. Gigantic stage. The entire venue has been renovated including the concession area. Beware the prices of food and drinks......prices are wildly out of proportion. I like...More

I love this venue. I especially love general admission and sitting on the lawn. The drinks are expensive but no more than other venues of this nature.
