STONE CITY ATTRACTIONS – 50 YEARS AND COUNTING!
Established in 1972 and continuing now for 50 years, STONE CITY ATTRACTIONS has been a musical force not only Texas but throughout the country.

Over the past 50 years, STONE CITY ATTRACTIONS has promoted nearly every major concert act ranging from AC/DC to SMOOTH JAZZ CHRISTMAS to the SEX PISTOLS. From THE ROLLING STONES, U-2, ERIC CLAPTON, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, SANTANA and BRITNEY SPEARS to STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, BUSH and TOOL to JULIO IGLESIAS, PEPE AGUILAR, and MAÑA. No act is too large or too small. From Classic Rock Artists such as the MOODY BLUES, BOB DYLAN, JACKSON BROWNE, SIMON & GARFUNKEL and JOURNEY to NO DOUBT, matchbox twenty and SHERYL CROW, the Jazz of DAVID SANBORN and the New Age Music of KITARO to the comedy of SINBAD and BILL MAHER.
