Two Tons of Steel will kick off the City of Lewisville’s Rocktober concert series 7 p.m. Oct. 9 in Wayne Ferguson Plaza, 150 W. Church St.
Touring in support of its latest release, “Gone,” Two Tons of Steel returns to Lewisville with its distinctive Texas Country sound. The San Antonio-based quartet kicked off Lewisville Western Days 2016, entertaining the crowd with their signature brand of country-meets-punk.
The band burst onto the scene in 1994 with its self-titled debut album, collecting several awards along the way. In 2003, the band was filmed during a “Two Ton Tuesday” gig for the IMAX film “Texas: The Big Picture,” which can be seen daily at the IMAX Theatre in the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin and has been seen as far away as Japan.
The Rocktober concert series is an initiative of the “Old Town” Big Move of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. It’s part of a larger effort to continue to develop Old Town Lewisville as a residential gathering site and a visitor destination.

Smoking/vaping is prohibited in all areas of the plaza. Attendees also are reminded there is no swimming or playing in the flowing water feature that runs along the north side of the Plaza. Well-behaved pets on a leash are welcome. Owners are expected to clean up after their animals, and plastic bag dispensers are available on site.
Wayne Ferguson Plaza is a 1.5-acre urban park that takes on a contemporary sweeping gesture using water to link east to west and unite Lewisville City Hall and MCL Grand. It features an elevated stage, a multi-level seating area, an interactive splash pad and a garden filled with swathes of native grasses and wildflowers. The plaza has received three national awards for urban design.
