Garth Brooks sells out both RODEOHOUSTON 2018 shows


Garth Brooks sold out two concerts at RODEOHOUSTON in Houston, TX in just 18 minutes for 2018. The concerts will be the opening and closing nights February 27th and March 18th. This will be the first time that one artist both opens and closes the rodeo.

“We are thrilled to welcome Garth Brooks back to the RODEOHOUSTON stage,” states Jack A. Lyons, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo chairman of the board. “This is the first time in multi-entertainer Show history that one artist has opened and closed RODEOHOUSTON, and we could not think of a more engaging performer to take on this epic presentation.”

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo promotes agriculture by hosting an annual, family-friendly experience that educates and entertains the public, supports Texas youth, showcases Western heritage and provides year-round educational support within the community. Since its beginning in 1932, the Rodeo has committed more than $430 million to the youth of Texas.

The remaining 2018 entertainers will be announced at a later date.

Last month, Brooks won Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards for a sixth time, a first for any artist. He also recently celebrated six million tickets sold on the tour, making it the biggest North American tour in history and the biggest American tour in the world. Brooks has now sold over 6.3 million tickets on the three year North American run of the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. The tour is presented by Amazon Music Unlimited.

Brooks will perform three shows in Newark, NJ this weekend before wrapping with seven shows over three weekends in Nashville. More than 100,000 tickets were sold for the Nashville dates becoming the 17th city on the trek to surpass 100,000 ticket sales.
