It’s official – The King of Country Music, George Strait, has added two more dates to his “Strait to Vegas” series.
With special guest, Caitlyn Smith, country legend Strait will be returning to the T-Mobile Arena for his 35th and 36th performances at the end of this year, December 2nd and December 3rd.
Tickets for the show will go on-sale Friday, May 27th, at 10 a.m. PT. American Express Card Members will be granted their own pre-sale, having the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, May 18 at 10 a.m. PT through Thursday, May 26 at 10 p.m. PT.
Strait will also be joining special guests Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, and Parker McCollum to headline Kansas City’s GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on July 30th. This fall, he will be heading to Texas for an already sold-out two-night performance at Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena on Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th, where he will be joined by Tenille Townes.
In 2014, Strait went on his record-breaking Cowboy Rides Away Tour. Since then, he has made several appearances and has performed at several shows – including headlining both weekends of Austin City Limits Festival and singing at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium.
With over 30 years of his career, Strait has 60 chart-topping singles – more than any other country artist. 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum selling albums ranks Strait third across all genres, falling behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. In addition, he remains the only artist in history to consecutively have a Top 10 hit each year over three decades.
With nearly 70 million albums sold – and recently earning his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with “The Weight of the Badge,” his latest single – Strait’s hard-earned nickname, the King of Country, remains.
