Electric Rodeo

The 10 Weirdest RodeoHouston Entertainer Bookings Of All Time

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is right around the corner, and Rocks Off will be providing our loyal readers with more coverage than is healthy for anybody. This will include tons of concert reviews, starting with Alan Jackson on opening night and continuing throughout the festivities, which will culminate in a closing set by C&W powerhouse Justin Bieber.

Oh, pipe down. Bieber's inclusion among country luminaries such as Tim McGraw and...Mary J. Blige is perfectly in keeping with the HLSR's trend of sprinkling its predominantly good-ole-boy musical itinerary with the previous year's more successful unit shifters. Bored Woodlands soccer moms can't come *every* night, after all.

And besides, he's hardly the weirdest act to make a Rodeo appearance.
