The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been a favorite Texas tradition since 1932, and now that the festivities are less than two months away, everyone’s gearing up for one of the biggest events of the year. The question on everyone’s mind? Who to see in concert. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of superstars in this year’s lineup.

Six-time Entertainer of the Year Garth Brooks will open and close the highly-anticipated concert series, giving fans two welcome opportunities to catch him live. Country kings Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, and more are back to pack the stadium, while Canadian pop star Alessia Cara and soulful Texan Leon Bridges will make their Rodeo debuts.

In a statement from the Rodeo website, president and CEO Joel Cowley said, “In addition to a fantastic entertainment lineup, RODEOHOUSTON 2018 will feature a brand new, star-shaped stage with top-of-the-line technology that will greatly enhance the presentation and place fans closer to the entertainers inside NRG Stadium.”

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, January 11th at 10 a.m. via, and you can enter the “Online Waiting Room” starting at 9:30 a.m. Read their announcement for more information.
