2014 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Lineup
Rodeo season is almost here. If you’re not from Houston, Rodeo is a month long event filled with carnival fun, BBQ, cowboys and awesome music (either country or pop). Rodeo season is the only time all Houstonians, put away their hipster gear for a pair of cowboy boots and tight jeans. It’s one big holiday in March.
Usually, the the concert dates and artists are posted on random dates, but this year the Livestock committee mixed things up and put up a video announcing this years acts. One of this years acts, The Band Perry announced all the acts, including themselves, all the way from Canada. You can watch the video below.
Ok. The real reason I’m writing this blog, to show you this years rodeo lineup. I don’t know why, but the Country acts seem old and a little bit boring. I would have loved to see Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood or Rascal Flatts, but It seems like they went for the safe aka the popular acts today. Reba McEntire and Zac Brown Band were the best country acts the committee brought this year.
The concerts I’m excited to watch this year, of coarse are the pop/r&b acts, like Usher, Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke. Usher will be performing on Black Heritage night. I was hoping they would bring John Legend on that night, but I can tolerate Usher for the night. It will be a fun night filled with baby making music and a lot of dancing. Got to remember to wear my dancing shoes, no boots. I can’t wait to see the very handsome Robin Thicke. I’ve been a fan of his music since High school, when his first mainstream single ” Lost Without You”. His voice is freakishly amazing. I will definitely be spending money to see Mr. Thicke on March 18th.

Tickets go on sale this Saturday January 18th at 10am. These tickets are the hottest tickets in town. Scalpers are already selling ticket for over $800. umm no. I’m not paying that much and you shouldn’t either. You can buy the tickets online with ticketmaster or go to the Reliant Box Office. Protect yourself, don’t get swindled. Yes this is a fun event, but remember all the money raised in March is to help promote education and to provide scholarship to worthy high schoolers in the Houston area.
