Local superstar Kelly Clarkson returns to Fair Park with gay-fronted Pentatonix

The last time we saw North Texas native Kelly Clarkson at Gexa Energy Pavilion was almost exactly two years ago, opening for Maroon 5 … and she blew the roof off the joint. Now she’s topping the lineup, with recent Grammy Awad-winning band Pentatonix as her special guest. Should be a great concert!
