In the 1990s, Rice Stadium featured concerts and festivals by Pink Floyd, Elton John and Billy Joel, George Strait, and The Eagles. Sadly, we have yet to run across the Pink Floyd photographs in our collection, so if you have any please consider donating them. For the George Strait fans, images of that festival will be going online in a few weeks.

Also, if you would like to learn more about this topic, there’s a great article from the Houston Press about the history of concerts at Rice and the University of Houston.
