About 26,000 evacuees made their way to Red Cross shelters near Dallas. The influx of people shocked the city.

The musical lineup for the 2014 NCAA March Madness Music Festival in Dallas was announced today – and it includes some top-notch groups.

How about Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band? The Killers? Tim McGraw? Jason Aldean?

They’ll be here in April. And they’ll be performing – for free – at what’s called Reunion Park or the site of the former Reunion Arena.  

Dallas has a new plan to develop the old Reunion Arena site. City council members were briefed yesterday on a proposed land swap to start the ball rolling again on a public/private partnership that was born 40 years ago. It resulted in creation of Reunion Arena, the Hyatt Regency and renovation of Union Station.
