First held in 1931 as the Houston Fat Stock Show and Livestock Exposition, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, or Houston Rodeo has been the signature event for its host city for over 80 years now. Held over 20 days at Reliant Stadium, the Houston Rodeo features a diverse program of entertainment including musical acts, livestock auctions, pig racing, the World Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, and of course, championship rodeo competition. Last year's event saw a record attendance of 2,506,238 people, requiring over 28,000 volunteers to organize. They say everything is bigger in Texas, and when it comes to Houston, the country's fourth most populous city, this three week rodeo festival is no exception. While many of the acts are country, this year's slate of artists features Usher, Selena Gomez, REO Speedwagon, Maroon 5, and Robin Thicke to diversify things up and provide a little bit of something for everyone. Despite all the hype and anticipation Houston Rodeo tickets demand is slightly lower this year, according to local Houston broker, MyTicketIn. Last year's rodeo included appearances by Mary J Blige, Demi Lovato, Styx, Pitbull, and BrunoMars , whose positive reviews and massive attendance contributed to him being selected to perform at the Super Bowl.

This was a humiliating WWE body slam and total defeat for the upstarts as angry and outraged Councilmembers, one after another, told UBER and Lyft what they thought of them and essentially handed them their head on a plate.
These are some new rules placed on them IF THEY WANT TO APPLY for the new category of APP-Based Transportation Companies. It is believed that Houston is the only city with such stringent rules for UBER, UBERx and Lyft and similar rogue operations:
