When you think of Texas, the first cities that pop into your head are probably Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. But did you know that Houston is the fourth-largest city in America? That’s right! With the city being so high on the population chart, you can bet Houston has a lotta things to do. One place in Houston that is sure to knock your (cowboy) boots off is Toyota Center – spanning 6 city blocks, welcoming well over 1 million people each year, and home to the Houston Rockets.
But it’s more than a sweet venue for b-ball; Toyota Center has a wide range of shows to please fans of all types – from R&B to rock and roll to WWE wrestling. No matter what makes you jump to your feet, you can’t go wrong with this venue, and ParkMobile is here to make Toyota Center parking reservations the easiest part of your experience. Just download the ParkMobile app before heading out, and you’ll be saying “Houston, we don’t have a problem.” 😉
This pop star rocketed to fame with a little help from social video services like Vine, and had no problem winning over screaming fans with his model looks and smokin’ vocals. He might be young (Happy 21st on August 8th, Shawn!), but he is definitely a smartie – he taught himself to play guitar from YouTube tutorials. #madprops
At just 15 years old, he released his first single, “Life of the Party”, and proceeded to become the youngest artist to make it in the top 25 of Billboard’s Hot 100. Shawn’s catchy tunes like “Stitches”, “Treat You Better” and “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” appeal to fans of all ages, and will have you singing right along when you see him perform on July 25th.
Pro tip: Make your Toyota Center parking reservations in advance – there are nearly 20K seats in the arena but only 2,500 parking spaces in the garage. You’re a savvy fan who wants to breeze in and out of the show without breaking a sweat (what if Shawn sees you??), so let us save you some serious time by getting you parked at the venue. #winning
More in the mood for some over-the-top rock with a heavy dose of “wow” factor? KISS definitely fits the bill. Over their 46-year career, KISS has become synonymous with their face makeup, rock opera costumes and pyrotechnic displays. But despite what you might have heard, the band’s name isn’t an acronym with a mysterious meaning; it’s actually a name thought up by frontman Gene Simmons during a conversation with drummer/vocalist Peter Criss who was formerly in a band called Lips. There’s your trivia for the day! #sharingiscaring
KISS is currently on their “End of the Road World Tour” which is quite possibly their last, so now’s the time to see them up close and personal! They’ll be rocking out to hits including “I Was Made for Lovin’ You”, “Rock & Roll All Nite” and “Detroit Rock City” when they light up the stage at Toyota Center on September 9th. Get those parking reservations in advance and save all your energy for air guitar.
If you read our blog on how to easily make parking reservations for summer concerts, you’ll know that this queen of country is making her rounds on the concert circuit, with a stop at Toyota Center on September 21st. Carrie rose to fame as the Season 4 winner of American Idol and swiftly became Nashville’s sweetheart with “Inside Your Heaven” – the only country song to make it to the very top of Billboard’s Hot 100. Yee haw!
Carrie recently posted a video on Instagram of a sing-off between her husband, Mike Fisher, and herself to see who could make their baby, Jacob, smile. Mommy won, hands-down! So. Cute. She doesn’t just make her baby smile, though; she makes her fans smile, #crypretty, and dance their hearts out while she takes over the stage. Get in on that! Buy your tickets to her show while you can, and make those Toyota Center parking reservations so you won’t have to worry about your car while belting out “Before He Cheats”, “Blown Away” and “Cowboy Casanova”.
No Matter Where You Park, Take ParkMobile With You
