From One Direction to OneRepublic, Houston’s live music calendar this summer can boast a whole host of major artists from the world of pop, R&B, rock and Latin music. Here’s a look at five of the biggest acts to have released Houston concert tickets for shows over the next few months.
With an average price of $774 for Beyonce tickets, the former Destiny’s Child star’s gig at the Toyota Center last Monday was the second most expensive in the city this summer. But less than a week after the Mrs Carter Show rolled into town, the costliest concert tour will also stop off at the same venue.
Indeed, One Direction tickets for the world-conquering teen idols’ date on July 21 are listed on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $300 and a whopping average price of $1082, proving just how in-demand their infectious brand of boyband pop currently is. The screaming army of fans lucky enough to get their hands on Houston concert tickets will get to see the quintet perform the best tracks from their two albums, Up All Night and Take Me Home, including US Top 10 hits “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Live While We’re Young” and UK number ones “Little Things” and “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks).”
Hugely instrumental in the increasing popularity of norteno music, Mexican outfit Pesado will showcase their fresh take on the genre when they visit the Toyota Center on August 3. Alongside material from 2012’s Mi Promesa, expect to hear all the classics from their 20-year back catalogue including breakthrough hit “Eso Me Gusta” and several numbers from 2006’s Grammy-nominated Piensame un Momento. There are still nearly a thousand Pesado tickets available for this date on TiqIQ with a get-in price of $66 and an average price of $198.
The final date of his Moonshine Jungle tour to feature support act Ellie Goulding, Bruno Mars tickets for his August 15 date performance at the Toyota Center are still on sale at TiqIQ with a get-in price of $130 and average price of $317. Fans should look forward to a hit-packed show with renditions of his four US chart-toppers “Just The Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “Locked Out Of Heaven” and “If I Was Your Man,” a solo version of his Travie McCoy collaboration, “Billionaire,” and covers of Ginuwine’s “Pony” and Soul For Real’s “Candy Rain” all featuring on the first North American leg.
One of the biggest co-headlining tours of 2013 then concludes at the Bayou Music Center on September 20 with Sara Bareilles and OneRepublic tickets on offer on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $58 and average price of $164. Alongside the US Top 10 hits “Love Song,” “Apologize” and “Good Life,” both parties will no doubt focus heavily on their respective new albums, The Blessed Unrest and Native, while having previously joined forces for Dreaming Out Loud bonus track “Come Home,” there may also be the odd live collaboration too.
