STEPHENVILLE (October 13, 2016) – The countdown to 2017 starts… Now?

City Limits is gearing up for its annual New Year’s Eve fete, announcing the kick off of tickets sales beginning at 10 a.m. Friday.

Stephenville’s largest nightclub is known for putting on a heck of show and packing in a crowd to ring in the New Year. Saying goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017 will be no different, and Texas and Red Dirt Music lovers won’t want to miss the entertainment lineup.


Callahan Divide takes the stage at 9:30 p.m. The band, which is currently riding the wave of a new single “Aliens & Ice Cream,” got its start in 2008 and has since gained a healthy following. The sound is good and band members – Colton Fox, Garrett Bryan, Travis Fox and Justin Davis – know how to get a crowd pumped up for a good time. The quartet will set the tone for a headlining act that will bring a lot of fanfare, stir memories for many longtime fans and keep the crowd rocking into 2017. 

The Great Divide, with original front man Mike McClure and band members Kelley Green, JJ Lester and Scotte Lester will perform their best and greatest for what is expected to be another sell-out crowd.

The Great Divide Reunion Project has played venues across the nation for some time. McClure left the band in 2003, but the group was reunited in 2011, playing a Stillwater, Okla., music festival and a subsequent show at City Limits. The sold-out events brought them back together for an ongoing series of reunion shows.


Advance tickets are $20 and can be purchased at City Limits or through the venue’s website. As long as tickets remain, they will be sold at the door for $25. There is an additional charge for minors, and music lovers as young as 17 years old are welcome to attend.

Doors to the event open at 8 p.m.

There will be a free champagne toast at midnight for all partygoers who are 21 years old and older.
