The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has unveiled special plans for Opening Day, presented by Texas Capital Bank, as rising singer-songwriter and Texas native Parker McCollum will make his return to RodeoHouston on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
McCollum became a RodeoHouston fan-favorite after performing for a crowd of 73,243, the fourth highest paid rodeo/concert attendance in 2022. Individual tickets for McCollum’s performance will go on sale to the public Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. at rodeohouston.com.
The Rodeo will host a special Opening Day celebration that will include a performance by a local band on the Stars Over Texas Stage, presented by Phillips 66, and closing out with McCollum performing on the RodeoHouston stage. Special giveaways will include 10,000 custom-made Howdy bobbleheads for early arrivers, and a variety of activities planned throughout the day, including an Opening Day Parade on the grounds of NRG Park.
“Everyone looks forward to the upcoming Rodeo season all year long, and we hope all Rodeo fans will circle Opening Day on their 2023 calendars, as this will be a day you won’t want to miss,” says Chris Boleman, Rodeo President and CEO. “Feb. 28 will truly be a Houston-themed celebration, as we kick off the 2023 Rodeo season with Houston’s-own country music star Parker McCollum closing out the day with another unforgettable RodeoHouston performance.”
“At Texas Capital Bank, we are very excited to sponsor Opening Day of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Feb. 28, and are looking forward to seeing everyone there,” adds President and CEO of Texas Capital Bank Rob C. Holmes. “Our partnership with the Rodeo is very important to us, as we share a true alignment of values. We believe that education is the key to a lifetime of success, and we are proud to partner with this outstanding organization on its educational programs, which offer scholarships for students to attend college.”
The 2023 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is scheduled for Feb. 28–March 19. The remaining 2023 RodeoHouston entertainer lineup, additional plans and the Opening Day schedule will be announced at a later date.
