Country Acts Selling for Houston Rodeo

As of Friday (Jan. 25), only George Strait had sold out his concert at the Houston Rodeo, according to the Houston Chronicle. In its final year at the Reliant Astrodome, the annual event, set for Feb. 12-March 3, includes 20 concerts in all, many featuring country performers. Strait’s show has been on sale since August. The opening concert by the Dixie Chicks, on sale since October, has only scattered seats left. Tickets to weekend concerts by Pat Green and Clay Walker in the 58,152-seat dome also are moving quickly, the Chronicle reports. Weekday concerts by Brooks & Dunn, Bob Dylan and Lyle Lovett and Martina McBride are moving more slowly. 01/28/02
