Houston’s Entertainment Scene Ignites with UniverSoul Circus 30th

As things heat up in Houston this June, so does the entertainment, starting with the UniverSoul Circus and a series of hot concerts across the city. UniverSoul Circus is marking a major milestone with its 30th anniversary “Family Reunion Tour,” and Houston is on the schedule. From June 13 to July 7, the circus at Butler Stadium will bring a global troupe of performers from Ethiopia to Mongolia. According to the Houston Chronicle, UniverSoul Circus founder and CEO Cedric Walker emphasized the show’s community spirit, stating, “Our special presentation of ‘Cousins ​​Around the World’ celebrates a global community that connects us all in a more inclusive society.” With acts like the Power of Love duo and the African Dream Hoop Divers, the circus promises an eclectic mix of pageantry and artistry for all ages.

But UniverSoul isn’t the only act in town. Houston’s June concert calendar is filled with big names braving the scourge of every Southern summer – the heat. According to CultureMap Houston, from the indie vibes of Vampire Weekend to the hip-hop of her hometown Megan Thee Stallion, the city’s outdoor venues are transforming into exciting hotspots for music lovers. Amid these events, the Silversun Pickups will showcase their alternative rock flair at the House of Blues on June 11th, promising a performance reminiscent of the Smashing Pumpkins of their heyday.

For those looking to toast a pint with music, Saint Arnold Brewing Company is hosting its 30th anniversary party on June 8th with an ensemble cast of Houston’s finest like Kam Franklin and Devin the Dude. Known as The Houston Super Group, the collective heralds a convergence of genres that reflects a microcosm of the city’s diverse soundscape. Ticket buyers eager to see live performances in the sun will need to slather on sunscreen and prepare to hydrate, because when it comes to Houston’s outdoor venues, Mother Nature and her rusty tendencies are no slouch.

Styx and Foreigner will also be rocking the city, with a June 22 performance at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion that’s sure to draw the daddy crowd. And if rock isn’t your thing, Alanis Morissette might strike a chord with her emotionally charged anthems on June 16, supported by none other than Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Morgan Wade. As the month draws to a close, Mother Mother heads to 713 Music Hall on June 25, riding the wave of newfound TikTok fame. The Vancouver-based band’s rise from Canadian modesty to international stardom is a testament to the unpredictable power of viral internet trends.

The highlight of June’s melodic offering is the Doobie Brothers, who take the stage on June 30th. With Michael McDonald back on vocals, they’ll serve up classics from the past decades and prove that in Houston, the summer heat can’t affect the city’s scorching entertainment scene.
