Since 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been one of the most remarkable events of its kind in the world. Gene Autry, “the Singing Cowboy,” was the first star entertainer to perform at the event, making his debut back in 1942. In 1970, Elvis Presley set an all-time attendance record with 43,614 spectators coming to see “the King” in the Astrodome. In 1990, an Economic Summit of Industrialized Nations was held at the event, which was attended by President George H.W. Bush, United States; President Jacques Delors, European Commission; Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, Italy; Chancellor Helmut Kohl, Germany; President Francois Mitterand, France; Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Britain; and Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Canada. In 2002, the concert finale with George Strait broke the all-time paid attendance record for any event ever held in the NRG Astrodome with 68,266 spectators. Just two years later, the event boasted nearly 2 million visitors.
