Transcript Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Among the most anticipated and exciting events in the Houston area, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) is world famous for the quality of riders, the spectacular concerts, and the presence of the world's best barbecue. The 2002 Rodeo had all of this and more as it celebrated its final year inside the "eighth wonder of the world," the Reliant Astrodome. The HLSR relocated to the new Reliant Stadium in 2003. Seeking to be a part of the history of this Houston tradition, enormous numbers flocked to the Dome to be a part of the last Rodeo to take place there. The all-time single event attendance record was shattered on the final night of the Rodeo, as over 68,000 turned out to see George Strait. Overall attendance exceeded 1.5 million for the entire three weeks of the event. This number was not as great as has been seen in previous years due to parking concerns at the Dome because of construction. George Strait was not the only big name performer at the rodeo this year. Country superstars Clint Black, Alan Jackson, and The Dixie Chicks lit up the stage to the delight of fans. Even ZZ Top, Neil Diamond and REO Speedwagon stopped in to perform. All in all, the choice of musical acts featured at the Rodeo was the most diverse in recent memory. But the Rodeo is about more than just concerts. It gives some of the best cowboys and cowgirls nationwide a chance to compete in front of a large audience for prizes, and also helps to raise scholarship money for students who hope to go to college. "I went to the Rodeo the night Bob Dylan performed. He put on a great show, but even he couldn't hold a candle to all the cute cowboys," said freshman hospitality major Denise Busch. The Rodeo was a Houston institution in transition in 2002, and even as the show closed, many were already looking ahead to the 2003 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in the new Reliant Stadium.
