The Houston Rodeo has made a major announcement regarding next year's entertainment. They will have the same artist open and close the Rodeo.

This is a first for the rodeo, but if you are going to do it...why not go big - real big with Garth Brooks.

Garth will perform two shows at the 2018 Houston Stock Show and Rodeo. The opening concert and rodeo performance will be on Feb. 28 and March 18 will be the final concert and performance of the Houston Rodeo next year.

After teasing the news on social media, Brooks made the announcement by saying: 'It’s with great humility and great appreciation that we accept this offer to come here and play. You’ve got a year to prepare. Just make you sure you bring a helmet — it’s going to be loud and fun!'
