The Houston Dynamo's new stadium is still a few weeks away from its grand opening, but we already know who will be the first musical group to take center stage.

The hit country duo Sugarland will play in the new BBVA Compass Stadium on August 26. The stadium was primarily built to be the home of the Dynamo and Texas Southern University football, but will also host a variety of other events. It can hold up to 25,000 people in its concert setting.

"We are really excited and humbled to be the first act announced at BBVA Compass Stadium," said Sugarland's Kristian Bush. "This year's tour is focused on the fans and will be an all request tour and we couldn't imagine a better place to see and perform for all of our fans than this new stadium, it's really a special gift as we just love Houston!"

Tickets for Sugarland go on sale March 30 at 10am. For more info on tickets, visit
