Verizon Theater, Grand Prairie – The 14th annual How The Edge Stole Christmas concert was held on December 9, 2015. Fans flooded the venue as soon as the doors opened, with some having been camped out since 7 am that morning. The energy in the theater seemed to bounce off the walls with excitement of the fans, who had been waiting for this moment for an entire year.
After a spectacular performance by Atlas Genius, the next group, The Struts, came out and captivated the audience with its rock and roll style and appearance. That’s right, not only did these rock stars play the part, they looked it as well. Dressed head to toe (except for the shoeless drummer) in black, this band was a real crowd pleaser.

The crowd reached a new high when Panic! At the Disco joined the performance. With a playlist full of chart toppers this group won the popularity vote. They had so much energy that lead singer, Brendon Urie even did multiple backflips on stage. They finished their show with their most popular song, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and left the audience fully satisfied.

The last groups of the night were Sublime and Of Monsters And Men. Both of these acts were a perfect close to the night. With Sublime’s old school energetic punk music and Of Monsters And Men’s indie folk sound, it was a unique twist to the nights end. With such an amazing line up, it’s no wonder How the Edge Stole Christmas 2015 was a sold out show.
