The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo tipped its hand by announcing that Garth Brooks would play twice next year, opening and closing the 2018 season on NRG Stadium’s brand-new stage February 27 and March 18. The anticipation level goes up another notch this morning, when a limited number of season tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. via rodeohouston.com. "Limited number" means, of course, they will be gone almost immediately.

Starting at $360, plus shipping and handling, the tickets cover both Brooks performances and the rodeo’s other 18 concerts, which will be announced in January. Those who bypass this opportunity will still have a chance to see Brooks when at least 18,000 individual tickets for both shows, located in the stadium’s Loge and Upper levels, go on sale 10 a.m. September 9; users must first log in to the rodeo’s “virtual waiting room,” which opens at 9:30 a.m.

Is it February yet?
