HOUSTON – Garth Brooks is coming to Houston again, this time to perform at the 2018 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, however ticket sales have been postponed in the wake of catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

"We extend our deepest condolences to those who have suffered a loss during this catastrophic event," Joel Cowley, Rodeo president and CEO, said.
