Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th shows at the Frank Erwin Center

Today is Friday the 13th, known by some as the most unlucky day of the year. The origin of friggatriskaidekaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th) remains unclear, but according to phobia specialists, it’s the most widespread superstition in the U.S. An estimated $800 million in business is lost on this particular day because people refuse to fly, buy homes and conduct business as they normally would.

Here at the Erwin Center, Friday the 13th doesn’t faze us at all! On a day associated with bad luck, we’ve held some pretty great events. Here’s a look at some of the incredible performances that took place on our stage on Friday the 13th:
