Vikki Carr, Little Joe to headline ‘El Paso Strong Benefit Concert’ at Coliseum

El Paso native and immensely popular singer Vikki Carr will be returning to the Sun City to take part in a special benefit concert at the El Paso County Coliseum, organizers announced Friday morning.

Carr will join a lineup of well-liked borderland artists at the CommUNITY en Acción El Paso Strong Benefit Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, August 25, at the Coliseum, located at 4100 East Paisano.

Proceeds will be donated to the Paso del Norte Community Foundation’s El Paso Victims Relief Fund to support the victims of the August 3 shooting.

Also taking the stage will be Little Joe y la Familia, Los Rieleros del Norte, Mike Gonzalez y Mazz Tribute, Dirty River Boys, Archie Bell, Rick Trevino, Fusion 915 and Mariachi Los Toritos.

For the last six decades, El Paso-born Carr has been one of the world’s foremost classic entertainers. She has released more 60 best-selling recordings, won three Grammy Awards and has been honored with a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Covering a variety of genres, from her first love of jazz, to mainstream pop and country, her pioneering crossover into Latin music solidified her international stardom.

The 78-year-old television, stage and film actress, who also is a dedicated philanthropist, continues to perform across the country.

Little Joe Hernandez, 78, born in Temple, Texas, has long been a favorite in the El Paso area. He has entertained crowds around the world for more than 60 years, on 70 albums and in countless shows.

Little Joe y la Familia has won two Grammy Awards and one Latin Grammy Award.

Tickets are $20 and $50, plus fees, and are available at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online.

CommUNITY en Acción is a non-profit organization of business and civic leaders, united in the purpose to improve the lives of El Paso’s Latino community. It has partnered with the foundation to establish a scholarship fund for the minor children of shooting victims who lost their lives.

Daily Schedule for Upcoming Neon Desert Music Festival Announced

Neon Desert Music Festival officials announced the daily music lineup for the eighth annual event, which is slated to return to El Paso, Texas, on May 26 & 27 of Memorial Day weekend.

Taking place over 15 city blocks in the heart of downtown El Paso and encompassing two city parks, Cleveland Square Park and San Jacinto Plaza, Neon Desert is one of the first major US music festivals to emphasize booking mainstream American acts alongside acclaimed international and Latin performers since year one.

This year, the festival will welcome headlining performances on Saturday, May 27, from Dutch EDM superstar Martin Garrix, who is currently ranked the No. 1 DJ in the world on DJ Mag‘s annual Top 100 DJs Poll; El Paso-born rock icons At the Drive-In, who continue to perform in support of the band’s reunion last year after a long-awaited return from their hiatus since 2001; and the Grammy Award-winning and oft-labeled “Best Rapper Alive” Lil Wayne.

The headlining performances on Saturday will be supported with sets from alt-rock darlings Third Eye Blind, who are set to perform a variety of their decade-spanning greatest hits; rapper Playboi Carti, who continues to ride high from the success of last year’s viral smash hit “Magnolia;” the mysterious masked DJ and producer Malaa, many fans of whom suspect is the collaborative secret project of Parisian producers DJ Snake, Tchami, and Mercer; and Latin Grammy-nominated Mexican singer/songwriter Caloncho; in addition to Cults, Little Jesus, Dreamville Records’ Earthgang, Boogie, and more.

Headlining performances on Sunday will include Atlanta trap-rapper and New York Times best-selling author Gucci Mane, who is prepping for the debut of Glacier Boyz, his rumored collaborative super-group project with Migos and Lil Yachty; American DJ/producer Dillon Francis, who is currently prepping for the release of his next album which is said to heavily feature Latin and Spanish-language music; and rock group Café Tacvba, who hail from nearby Mexico and continue to perform in support of their recent album, Jei Beibi, which was released last May.

Sunday’s schedule is also set to include performances from Puerto Rican-born reggaeton singer and songwriter Farruko; electronic dance music duo GTA; New York-based indie-pop band The Drums; and Bomba Estéreo, who are best known for their psychedelic-cumbia style of music and who just released their latest album, Ayo, last fall to praise from critics and fans alike, and many other acts, like LANY, Lecrae, Cuco, Nao, and Buddy, among others.

Single-day GA passes are on sale now for $79 at NeonDesert.com  Additionally, weekend GA passes to the two-day event are still available for $119, along with J&K weekend VIP passes for $275 and J&K Platinum weekend VIP passes for $550.

J&K VIP ticket-holders will receive a variety of perks, a dedicated VIP-only entrance, complimentary drinks by Later Later, complimentary dinner each night, official Neon Desert merch, El Paso Electric charging stations, free barber, and more.

J&K Platinum VIP passes, which sold out in their debut last year, offer the most elevated experience available to ticket buyers. The Platinum VIP attendees will receive all of the regular VIP perks, in addition to exclusive access to a main stage viewing deck, a special Platinum VIP area featuring dedicated bars and food vendors, and more.

Interested patrons are encouraged to act fast as these VIP ticket packages are in very short supply.
