AT&T Center & Freeman Coliseum
One of the city’s most popular events, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo returns to the grounds of the AT&T Center this February. Annually recognized as one of the best rodeos in the country, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is more than two weeks worth of rodeo excitement, livestock auctions, carnival rides, food, drink, shopping and, of course, performances. Bookending the professional bull riding, barrel racing, and calf roping are performances by some of the biggest acts in country, pop, rock, and Latin music today. Highlights include: Sammy Hagar & The Circle (February 7), ZZ Top (February 14), Keith Urban (two shows on February 15), Dierks Bentley (February 18), and Brad Paisley (February 21).
Cost: $10 and up
Arneson River Theatre
All the pomp, circumstance, and flamboyant good times of Mardi Gras once again make their way down to San Antonio’s bustling River Walk. The stage of the Arneson River Theatre marks the focal point for revelers who want to see the decked-out river barges while taking in some world-class live music.
Take a trip back in time and bask in the glory of the totally tubular 1980s at the Aztec Theatre. The Motels, When In Rome II, and Bow Wow Wow will bring their signature hits and a heavy dose of nostalgia to this ‘80s-themed rager.
