RodeoHouston 2020 lineup: NCT 127, Gwen Stefani, Khalid, and Willie Nelson are coming to rock your world
The lineup spans across country, latin pop, hip-hop, and K-pop and will feature at least 17 stars
There had been a leaked RodeoHouston 2020 lineup doing the rounds on social media on January 9 morning, and fans were thrilled to bits over the possibilities of it being true.
And now, that same lineup has been confirmed. At least 17 star artistes will perform at the concert showcase from March 3 to 22. Some of the big names that will be hitting the RodeoHouston stage this year are K-pop band NCT 127, big draws like Gwen Stefani, Khalid and Becky G, legends like Willie Nelson, Ramon Ayala, and of course, plenty of country icons like Maren Morris, Midland, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and many more.
A similar leak occurred in 2019, barely a few days before the announcement. On January 10, RodeoHouston reps were reluctant to confirm that the leaked lineup was legitimate since they were releasing the official lineup themselves at 7 pm.
"There are several lineups that have been shared on social media," a RodeoHouston spokesperson said via an email statement. "We are excited to unveil the official 2020 RodeoHouston lineup tonight."
And now that the actual RodeoHouston 2020 lineup has been revealed, the buzz is all over Twitter. One of the biggest reasons for the excitement is the revelation that the popular K-pop act NCT 127 will be performing on March 10. The South Korean group's debut record 'Regular-Irregular' has already hit No. 1 on iTunes in 22 countries, and the 10-member band is sure to attract droves of fans for their show in March.
NCT 127 is no stranger to Texas, having already performed previously at Sugar Land. "The first things that come to mind when I think Texas is probably saying, 'Howdy y'all,' Texas barbecue, cowboys and cowboy hats," NCT 127 member Johnny told the Houston Chronicle.
