Country music artist Gary Allan is set to perform at Aggie Park at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6 as part of Texas A&M’s Fall Concert Series, which brings music to the campus each Friday before home football games.

There’s no cost for attendees, thanks to donor support and in collaboration with the Office of the President and MSC Town Hall. Food trucks will be parked on-site on Houston Street. The first 100 students showing their A&M IDs at a check-in booth will receive a ticket for a free taco from Taqueria Puro Potosino. Other food options include Burgers and Burritos, Abu Omar Halal and Sno Monkey.

The upcoming concert marks the fourth in a series of six.

Allan — who has produced 10 studio albums — made his country music debut in 1996 with the release of his first album “Used Heart for Sale.” He’s had four No. 1 singles and his last album, “Ruthless,” was released in 2021.

Elise Taylor, chair of MSC Town Hall, said the event is an opportunity not just for the campus community, but visitors to Aggieland and residents from across the Brazos Valley to enjoy live entertainment the evening prior to the football game against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

“This is going to be a great opportunity to bring your family and friends and show your Aggie Spirit before Midnight Yell Practice,” said Taylor, ’25. “Get there early for free tacos and enjoy a great show as we get ready for Alabama.”

Parking is $12 at the University Center Garage and Lot 48, but you can only prepay via ParkMobile. Pay-upon-arrival parking will be available in Stallings Boulevard Garage, Lot 60 or Lot 62. Here is a map of the lots across campus.

Officials said there’s not an opening act, but food will be for sale in advance of the show.

Two more concerts are scheduled for this season:

  • Friday, Oct. 27: Luna Luna (Latin pop); Rightfield (indie pop)
  • Friday, Nov. 17: Betcha (alternative rock); Ariel & the Culture (Latin alt pop)

As a reminder, the following is prohibited in Aggie Park: alcohol, tobacco products, vaping, open flames, fires, fireworks, illegal drugs, weapons and panhandling. View a full list of rules.
