HOUSTON -

The Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo will use a new ticketing company for next year's event.

It's called AXS, which has both a web site and a mobile site for ticket purchases.

One big change will be for season ticket buyers. In the past they only got printed books of tickets, but now for the first time they will have the ability to forward printable tickets or use the app to share mobile tickets.

Next year's rodeo kicks off March 3.
