Houston- it is going to be a hot one! The temperature is on the rise and with it comes some of the hottest events in the state. While I know the desire to chill indoors and maybe catch up on your shows is strong, you would be ill-advised to not consider checking out some of these great events going on around the city this weekend. Not in the know? TicketCity has got you covered! Below are 5 can’t miss events going on around town:

Hamilton- Sarofim Hall at The Hobby Center

Through May 20th, 2018

From Broadway to the bayou, Lin Manuel’s smash hit, Hamilton, is being performed as part of Broadway Across America’s 2018 lineup of shows. With less than two weeks left, don’t throw away your shot to see the most popular show in the world! This weekend is the perfect time to go and it is not too late to snag tickets by clicking here.

Lynyrd Skynyrd- Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion- The Woodlands

Saturday, May 12th

Southern rock legends, Lynyrd Skynyrd will take the stage Saturday night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands. The Last of the Street Survivors tour is said to be their final hurrah so I would expect a little bit of everything from the band’s 50+ year run.
