Yes, it's official: Lizzo is coming home.
On February 4, Houston rap legend, Bun B, announced on behalf of RodeoHouston that Lizzo, the singer/rapper/flautist/force of nature, who just snagged three Grammys, will be performing at this year's RodeoHouston. Just as we predicted, the H-Town-bred performer (she attended Elsik High School and the University of Houston) will be the main attraction on the hip-hop/pop night (also known as Black Heritage Day) on Friday, March 13.
Two more big names will also be headed to the rodeo next month. (Bun B made the surprise reveals at three area high schools.) Fellow Grammy winner Chance the Rapper will be performing on Friday, March 6, also known as the Rodeo's hip-hop/R & B night. The superstar MC from Chicago disappointed fans last fall when he announced he would be postponing his tour (which included a stop in Houston, the home of his beloved wife). But Chance will be making a lot of local fans happy before he performs at the Something in the Water Festival in April.
Last but not least, the EDM night on Friday, March 20 finally has a headliner: Marshmello. The masked DJ/producer/remixer, best known for such hits as "Summer" and "Wolves" with Selena Gomez, will turn the NRG Stadium into a huge dance club when he starts spinning those grooves.
Tickets for the Friday performances will go on sale Thursday, February 6 at 10 am. (The Online Waiting Room will open at 9:30 am, and customers in the Waiting Room will be randomly selected to enter the store to purchase tickets at 10 am). For more information, visit RodeoHouston online.
