GEORGE STRAIT TO JOIN THE RODEO’S 90TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION, MARKING HIS 31ST RODEOHOUSTON® APPEARANCE

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ Announces 21 Days of Rodeo, Scheduled for Feb. 28 — March 20, 2022

MAY 18, 2021 — HOUSTON — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Today, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officials

announced the Rodeo’s 90th anniversary celebration, scheduled for 21 days Monday, Feb. 28

through Sunday, March 20, which includes an extra day and a concert-only performance by country

music icon George Strait. Strait is set to perform on the final night, marking his 31st

RODEOHOUSTON performance.

“What better way to celebrate the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s 90th anniversary than with a

special, concert-only performance by the ‘King of Country’ music himself,” said Rodeo president and

CEO Chris Boleman. “After a couple of particularly challenging years, our thousands of dedicated

volunteers simply can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the Rodeo grounds for a Texas-sized

celebration of Western heritage that will be well worth the wait.”

Strait’s full-length evening concert will be held in NRG Stadium on the final night of the 2022

Rodeo. There is no rodeo performance scheduled before the concert, however, all activities on the

grounds, including shopping and dining areas, carnival, livestock and horse show competitions, and

other exhibits and attractions at NRG Park, will be open to the public on March 20.

Individual tickets for Strait’s concert-only performance go on sale to the public Thursday, June

24. A limit of four tickets per person will be permitted. The remaining 2022 RODEOHOUSTON

entertainer lineup will be announced at a later date.

Strait’s 2022 performance will mark his 31st performance at the Rodeo, since 1983. In 2019,

Strait’s concert- only performance with special guests Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen broke the

NRG Stadium attendance record with 80,108 fans. The NRG Stadium record is separate from the Paid

Rodeo/Concert attendance records, as this was a concert-only performance with additional seats on

the floor of the stadium. To date, Strait has entertained more than 1.7 million RODEOHOUSTON fans.

GEORGE STRAIT AND THE RODEO

More than 35 years ago, George Strait debuted at RODEOHOUSTON as a newcomer to the country music

scene. Since then, he has become a household name with 33 platinum or multi-platinum-selling

albums, the most in all of country music, and 60 No. 1 singles — the most of any artist of any

music genre in history. He is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, holds a GRAMMY® for Best

Country Album with “Troubadour” and more than 60 music and entertainment industry awards.

In 1996, Strait was inducted into the RODEOHOUSTON Star Trail of Fame in recognition of his musical

contributions to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. He is one of only nine artists to receive

this award since the first entertainer performance in 1942. In 2013, the first four-year Houston

Livestock Show and Rodeo George Strait Scholarship was awarded through the Rodeo’s scholarship

program in honor of his partnership and friendship with the Rodeo.

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 $500 million to the youth of Texas and education. The 2022

Rodeo is scheduled for Feb. 28 – March 20. The 2022 World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest is

scheduled for Feb. 24 – 26. For more information, visit rodeohouston.com and connect with
