The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo announced three more performers for its 2010 concert series Monday morning, joining the previously announced Jonas Brothers (March 7), Tim McGraw (March 8), Brad Paisley (March 11) and Brooks & Dunn (March 20) dates. The performers announced Monday morning are Dierks Bentley (March 3), Rascal Flatts (March 10, "Salute to Our Troops" day) and Gary Allan (March 17). All three are returning rodeo performers. The rodeo also announced it will continue its "Value Days" budget ticket-pricing deals for these three concerts, which all happen on a Wednesday. Value Days tickets start at $10 ($5 tickets are also available, but only cover admission to the grounds, not the evening rodeo and concert) are on sale now at rodeohouston.com, the HLSR ticket office in Reliant Center and Fiesta supermarkets statewide.
The 2010 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo runs March 2-21. The remaining performers, and the lineup for the rodeo's smaller Hideout venue, will be announced next month.
According to Monday's press release, the remainder of the dates are earmarked "Country" except for March 18 ("Pop") and March 21 ("Disney/Pop/R&B"). Unlike in years past, there is no "Classic Rock" day... Rocks Off was kind of hoping they'd booked Bon Jovi. (Shut up... we've never seen them before.)
Season-ticket packages are also available at the rodeo's Web site.
