Got friends in low places? Well, you and Garth Brooks would have that in common. See the star who's finally back in Houston this weekend.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- This weekend, NRG Stadium will welcome country titan Garth Brooks, which promises to be a massive sellout. Speaking of massive, giant dinosaurs take over Houston; folks can get up close and personal with their favorites.

Folks can also get up close and personal with an astronaut this weekend. The symphony celebrates 75 years of India, and a hysterical movie star/comedian comes to town.

Enjoy! Here are your best bets for the weekend.

Kevin Hart: Reality Check Tour
