BBVA Compass Stadium is home to the Houston Dynamo, but it will soon have a dual role. For the first time since it was built two years ago, the soccer stadium will be transformed into a concert venue.

"We think its going to be a great venue for outdoor music," said Doug Hall, General Manager of BBVA Compass Stadium. "The fact that it's going to be downtown and touch so many audiences."

BBVA Compass Stadium has partnered with the new radio station 93.7 The Beat, an R&B and Hip Hop station that recently changed formats from Rock and Roll.

The radio station plans to bring in headliners like singer Trey Songz and rappers Kendrick Lamar and J Cole for the June 20th concert.

It will require a lot of work and will likely take three days to accomplish.

"We'll protect the floors. We'll bring in chairs. We'll bring in sound and lights. We'll convert the stage," said Hall.

The soccer stadium holds 22,000 seats for fans.

"We actually just recently partnered up with BBVA Stadium to bring to Houston the biggest event of the year. It's going to be our staple concert," said Mara Melendez, Program Director with 93.7 THE BEAT.

"I think its going to be a fantastic venue for live music," said Hall.

Rappers Future, Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Trae tha Truth are also scheduled to perform. For ticket information, head to AXS.com.
