It's a great day to be the King of Country. Not only is today George Strait's 69th birthday, but officials with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have announced that George will be performing at next year's RODEOHOUSTON on Sunday, March 20, 2022.

Next year will mark the Rodeo's 90th anniversary, and to celebrate, it's scheduled for 21 days beginning Monday, February 28 through Sunday, March 20. That's an extra day.

This will mark Strait's astounding 31st RODEOHOUSTON performance.

“What better way to celebrate the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s 90th anniversary than with a special, concert-only performance by the ‘King of Country’ music himself,” said Rodeo president and CEO Chris Boleman. “After a couple of particularly challenging years, our thousands of dedicated volunteers simply can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the Rodeo grounds for a Texas-sized celebration of Western heritage that will be well worth the wait.”

There will be no rodeo performance scheduled the same day as Strait's concert. However, all activities on the grounds, including shopping and dining areas, carnival, livestock and horse show competitions, and other exhibits and attractions at NRG Park, will be open to the public.

Individual tickets for Strait's concert-only performance go on sale to the public on Thursday, June 24. A limit of four tickets per person will be allowed.

The complete 2022 RODEOHOUSTON music lineup will be announced at a later date.

In 2019, Strait's concert-only performance with guests Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen broke the NRG Stadium attendance record with 80,018 fans. To date, Strait has entertained more than 1.7 million RODEOHOUSTON fans since his first performance in 1983.
