RodeoHouston's new stage will have five star points that each measure 36 feet. The points can be raised to create elevated performance positions.

The stage will also come equipped with a 48-foot diameter, rotating performance space and a 22-foot tall, motion-controlled LED video screen back drop.

The star stage will make its debut on night one of the rodeo on Feb. 27, 2018. The annual event already plans to have Garth Brooks headline opening and closing days of the rodeo.

Tickets for the country superstar's shows go on sale on Dec. 1.
