Will Rogers Auditorium, 3401 W. Lancaster Ave., was built in 1936 for the Texas Centennial celebration.
Classic rock band Foreigner is the first act announced for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo’s 2020 lineup in Will Rogers Auditorium, a building designed and known for its sound quality.
For many, the concerts will bring back memories of legendary acts. Of the hundreds who’ve headlined in the Auditorium, a few include Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, Jimi Hendrix, Tammy Wynette, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Paul Simon, Sheryl Crow and Michael Bublé.
“Our goal is to bring Stock Show guests a variety of music acts and comedy shows to the Will Rogers Auditorium that appeal to our diverse audience,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “The legions of notable performers who played there is impressive and we’ll introduce the Auditorium to new generations who can enjoy the wonderful acoustics and intimacy provided by this legendary venue.”
With decades of No. 1 hits, Foreigner will set the stage for a new entertainment format being launched in a music venue with a rich history of memorable concerts. With the support of local distillery TX Whiskey, the Will Rogers Auditorium will thrill 2020 Stock Show guests with acts from various genres.
Tickets for the Foreigner concert start at $39.50 and are on sale to the public at Ticketmaster.com.
Other acts booked for the Will Rogers Auditorium during the 2020 Stock Show will be announced in the coming weeks.
