HOUSTON — Houston is gradually inching back to the normalcy it was before coronavirus.
Next month, hundreds if not thousands of people will gather at the Toyota Center for the venue’s first concert since the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Toyota Center tweeted it is selling tickets for a Memorial Day Mayhem concert that is scheduled for May 29.
The flier posted to the arena’s Twitter page said this will be the “1st mega concert since pandemic.”
This Memorial Day concert is not the only show happening at the Toyota Center this year.
In August, Justin Beiber will be performing at the arena, and in October, recording artist Kane Brown's tour will be stopping at the Toyota Center.
Rapper, singer and songwriter Bad Bunny will be having multiple shows at the Toyota Center in February 2022, and the arena has already started selling tickets for his concert. In fact, tickets went on sale Friday and now are almost sold out.
Even in the rain, hours before the Bad Bunny tickets went on sale, Martin Montano was in line, ready to buy.
“Tickets went on sale at noon. I showed up at 10 a.m. in the morning to get Bad Bunny tickets," Montano said.
And he wasn’t alone.
“It was an instant sellout," Montano said. “Everybody just sat outside in the rain, hoping and waiting for a chance."
From comedy shows to wrestling matches, it’s a whole list of A-list performers that will soon be back in the spotlight here in Houston.
On its website, the Toyota Center is still telling guests they have to wear masks, and capacity will be limited. At last check, it’s still 25 percent.
Some other precautions you can expect if you’re going to the Toyota Center anytime soon include mobile ticketing, cashless purchasing and filling out a COVID-19 health survey within 48 hours of entering the arena.
