San Antonio Rodeo 2016
On Nov. 5, the 2016 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo lineup was unveiled, confirming a powerful list of musicians and bands scheduled to headline the city’s AT&T Center over two weeks next February. The 2016 rodeo will run from Feb. 11-27, bringing many notable stars to the stage in between each day’s diverse rodeo events.
Country Stars Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, and Toby Keith Confirmed for San Antonio Rodeo 2016
Once again plenty of country music greats have been booked on this year’s San Antonio Rodeo lineup. Veteran singer-songwriter Alan Jackson celebrated his 25th anniversary in country music in 2015, and he’ll continue to build his legacy next year with a Monday night performance at the San Antonio Rodeo. The following night will feature a headlining set by fellow solo star Brad Paisley, one of the few performers who was selected to return to the event for the second year in a row. Another fan favorite, Toby Keith, will headline AT&T Center earlier in the week to support his latest album, “35 MPH Town,” which was released in Oct. 2015.
Besides these three heavyweights, several other country music stars will be rounding out the 2016 lineup. Fresh-faced vocalist Hunter Hayes will kick off all the action on the first night of the San Antonio Rodeo this year, while Gary Allan and Brantley Gilbert will perform toward the end of the two-week festival. Two country bands--Old Dominion and Turnpike Troubadours--are also featured on the upcoming schedule.
San Antonio Rodeo Lineup Includes Pop Favorites Pitbull, Jason Derulo, and More
Beyond the heavy focus on country music, this year’s San Antonio Rodeo will offer something for today’s pop music fans. Miami’s own Pitbull is scheduled to headline two shows on the first Saturday of San Antonio Rodeo 2016, one a matinee and the other an evening concert. The next week Jason Derulo, whose most recent hit was the jam “Want to Want Me,” will bring his brand of R&B to AT&T Center on Feb. 17.
Other non-country acts on this year’s lineup include Latin pop star Becky G, the Dallas-based norteno quintet La Maquinaria Nortena, and alt-rock group Counting Crows.
