Extreme Rocks Sold-Out House of Blues for Its First Dallas Show in 16 years

Experience the electrifying return of Extreme to Dallas at the House of Blues, their first show in 16 years. The band’s “Thicker Than Blood” tour supports their latest album “Six,” showcasing hit singles and new tracks to a sold-out crowd.

Extreme, the American rock band, performed in Dallas for the first time in 16 years, at the sold-out House of Blues on Saturday, February 17, 2024. The band, which was on hiatus from 2010 to 2015, returned to the last venue it played in town, in August 2008. The quartet is currently on its ongoing “Thicker Than Blood” tour, which is in support of Six, the band’s latest studio album, which dropped in 2023 and was its first studio release in 15 years.

The band played about half of the record’s dozen tracks over its two-hour set, displaying a kinetic relentlessness throughout. The night was punctuated by the band’s two hit singles — 1991’s acoustic two-fer “Hole Hearted” and “More Than Words,” from its double-platinum Extreme II: Pornograffiti LP — and the enthusiastic audience was more than up to the task of participating.

The band’s guitar wizardry was astonishing to behold, and the night was punctuated by the band’s two hit singles. The sold-out House of Blues teemed with fans, and the band performed with a vigor many acts of its vintage don’t feel compelled to muster. Passion can wane over the years, but Extreme appears as devoted as ever to making sure it leaves a mark. The night kicked off with a blistering set from Living Colour, a contemporary of Extreme’s that has been a far more frequent presence in North Texas, and which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
