Megan Thee Stallion is coming home. The 28-year-old is returning to H-Town later this month for her first show in the city in four years.
According to Rolling Stone, Meg will headline the AT&T Block Party on March 31, marking her first performance of 2023 as well as her first since Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting her.
The three-day festival will be held at Discovery Green park to coincide with Houston hosting the NCAA Final Four to celebrate this year’s men’s March Madness tournament. Fans can register for free tickets to the March Madness Music Festival via the NCAA website.
“There’s no place I’d rather be for my first performance of the year than my hometown of Houston,” Meg relayed in a statement. “The AT&T Block Party Concert is gonna be such a vibe, and I can’t wait to get back on stage in the city where it all began. I’m looking forward to seeing my Hotties and putting on an unforgettable show for them.”
While Megan Thee Stallion will headline night one in the Bayou City, Lil Nas X is slated to perform the following evening on April 1 with Maggie Rogers.

It’s Meg’s first hometown show since 2019 as she was slated to have another performance in late 2021 but canceled out of respect for the victims of the Astroworld Festival tragedy.
The “WAP” rapper has laid relatively low in wake of the Tory Lanez trial but was seen making her first public appearance last month celebrating Valentine’s Day with her boyfriend Pardison Fontaine before attending a surprise party for her 28th birthday on February 15.
Lanez was found guilty on all counts of shooting Meg in the feet during a drunken dispute in July 2020 following a high-profile two-week trial in Los Angeles in December.
The Sorry 4 What artist faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison, as well as subsequent deportation to his native Canada. However, Lanez’s sentencing has been delayed in order to give his legal team more time for a new trial.
There will be a new motion heard on April 10 to determine if the Canadian singer will be granted another trial, but if a judge rejects the motion, he will be sentenced on the same day.
