The star of RodeoHouston 2018 could very well be the new stage.

Rodeo officials unveiled plans for a custom, star-shaped, rotating concert stage like no other. It will make its debut Feb. 27, 2018 when Garth Brooks kicks off the series of rodeo concerts.

Designed and fabricated by TAIT, the stage will have five star points, each with an arm length of 36 feet and a base of 23 feet. Each star point can be raised individually or jointly and can be lowered to the arena surface or raised to create an elevated performance position. The rotating performance area will expand by eight feet in diameter and the new stage will include a 22-foot-tall motion controlled LED backdrop video screen.
