Irving Music Factory is not even open yet, but it's amassing some pretty notable talent. Comedian Dave Chappelle, country singer Brad Paisley, rock band KISS and psychedelic rockers the Flaming Lips are probably the biggest names on the fall 2017 calendar. But are any of those bigger than Harry Styles, the best-known singer in the boy band One Direction?
Possibly not, regardless of what you think about boy bands.
Styles just announced a world tour that includes more than a dozen stops in North American cities plus Paris, London, Sydney, Tokyo and more.
The 23-year-old heartthrob touches down in the Dallas area on Oct. 10 at Irving Music Factory. Yes: He's playing in one of Dallas' burbs, not in the city center.
Styles, arguably the most popular member of the five-piece, then four-piece band One Direction, is now out on his own. He has a new album expected to drop May 12 that includes single "Sign of the Times," which he recently performed on the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
Irving Music Factory is an $180 million development with a music facility that can transform to be either indoor or outdoor. It's expected to hold up to 8,000 people.
