DALLAS OBSERVER: 10 Best Concerts of the Week

Mr. Big
7 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 13, The Factory in Deep Ellum, 2713 Canton St. $25+ at axs.com

It's hard to say if this will be the end of LA rock band Mr. Big. The band announced its Big Finish farewell tour with special guest Adam Nanez last spring, but in November, singer Eric Martin confirmed that the band had been working on material for a new album. So whether this is the end of the band, the end of touring or just the end of all things past remains to be seen. The band is probably best known for its 1991 single, "To Be With You," which appeared on its second album, Lean Into It. The song was the band's only hit single in the U.S., but success in America isn't everything. In Japan, Lean Into It and all eight albums after it have been in the country's top 10, and a few of them have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan. Let that be a lesson in how dismissive a term like "one-hit wonder" can be. What have you and the rest of America been missing? Find out Saturday in Deep Ellum.
