Former Disney Channel star Ross Lynch is planning to launch his world tour in Argentina, but first, he stopped by Fort Worth to talk with TCU students.

“I enjoyed performing here at TCU,” Lynch said. “As I mentioned during the show, I love coming to Texas. When the crowd did the chant (riff ram), I could feel the sense of camaraderie.”

He performed an acoustic show Saturday night sponsored by theEnd, the organization that brings weekend entertainment to campus.

He played for a packed house in the Brown-Lupton University Union (BLUU) ballroom. According to theEnd, tickets sold out within 20 minutes of being made available.

Lynch sang multiple songs throughout the night including “Malibu,” “Pass Me By” and “Can’t Do It Without You.”

During the show, he spoke about playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in Marc Meyers’ feature, “My Friend Dahmer.”

“I truly became Dahmer during production and filming,” Lynch said. “It was nice to get away and get back to being Ross again.”

Lynch mentioned the word “serendipitous” a few times during the on-stage interview.

“It’s just that I think it’s different,” he said after the show. “It means to me that the best things in life usually arrive unexpectedly.”

Kara Cramar, a first-year nursing major, who works with theEnd, got to see the behind-the-scenes planning of bringing a celebrity to TCU.

“It was surreal,” Cramer said. “The amount of preparation between getting Ross Lynch to come to campus and then preparing his official concert in the BLUU ballroom was amazing. As a student-focused organization we poured our hearts into every detail of the show, striving to create something truly special for other students to enjoy.”

After leaving TCU, Lynch decided to check out Fort Worth’s nightlife. He went to Second Rodeo in the Stockyards with his manager and marketing team.

Ross and Rocky Lynch have announced details of The Driver Era’s next tour, which will premiere on March 14 in Argentina.
