RodeoHouston To Debut Rotating Main Stage For 2018

For the first time in over 30 years RodeoHouston is debuting a new rotating concert stage on opening day, Feb. 27, 2018, and Garth Brooks will be the first entertainer to perform on the new stage. Brooks is returning for his third RodeoHouston performance ever and will be opening and closing the Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Designed and fabricated by TAIT, the leading producer of live entertainment equipment in the world, the stage will feature the latest technology to boost concert presentation and fan experience. It is star-shaped with five star points, and each star point can be raised individually or jointly and can be lowered to the arena surface or raised to create an elevated performance position. The stage’s 48-foot diameter round rotating performance area enables the artist to be closer to the audience, and it has a 22-foot-tall motion controlled LED backdrop video screen. 

Tickets for the two Garth Brooks performances set for Feb. 27 and March 18, 2018 will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017. A minimum of 18,000 tickets will be available for purchase, and these tickets will be located in the Loge and Upper Level sections of NRG Stadium. Tickets for the remaining RodeoHouston performances will go on sale following the official lineup announcement which is scheduled for January 2018.

The 2018 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is scheduled for Feb. 27 – March 18.
