The 2017 RodeoHouston concert series changes things up a tad with its most youthful lineup in years.

The first thing that immediately sticks out about the 2017 RodeoHouston entertainment lineup isn’t Alicia Keys. It’s not even the appearances of Blink-182 or Meghan Trainor. It’s that a number of the names on the list are mostly, almost entirely new to Houston’s annual music series that coincides with its livestock show and rodeo.

The 2017 RodeoHouston lineup was unveiled last night shortly after the 2017 Golden Globes concluded, and will feature performances from 21 of “music’s hottest stars” from March 7th through March 26th.

Alicia Keys will perform for Black Heritage Night on March 10 – a far better choice than last year’s Jason DeRulo selection – while Banda El Recodo and Grupo Siggno out of San Antonio will highlight Go Tejano Day on Sunday, March 19. And while some of the usual country suspects (including Texas’s own Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line, and the Zac Brown Band) will make appearances over the 21-night affair, RodeoHouston proudly boasts that “more than half of the star-studded entertainer lineup scheduled to perform… will take the rotating stage for the first time in 2017.” That includes the likes of the aforementioned Trainor, The Chainsmokers, Fifth Harmony, and Dierks Bentley. Joel Cowley, President and CEO of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, noted that this year, “Houstonians can see a diverse offering of incredibly talented artists at truly affordable prices.”

The official schedule for the 2017 RodeoHouston concert series can be viewed both up top and here. Tickets will go on sale Saturday, March 14th, at 10 AM, via AXS, with the Online Waiting Room opening at 9:30 AM that morning.
