You could almost hear the hearts breaking back in 2012 when George Strait announced that he was retiring from touring. The King of Country has stuck to his word; Strait has not embarked on any tours since The Cowboy Rides Away tour wrapped up in 2014. But Strait has not retired from live performances and fans will be pleased to know that the superstar has added two shows to his “Strait to Vegas” itinerary, both of which will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Feb. 2019.
VIP packages for the 2019 performances feature many exclusive amenities including a reserved front row seat in a custom, collectable chair in the Troubadour package. As well as limited edition posters, a photo book, and many more limited edition items detailed here. VIP packages and premium tickets will go on sale Oct. 12.
Feb. 1, 2019 @ 8 p.m. (Tickets)
Feb. 2, 2019 @ 8 p.m. (Tickets)
King George has racked up an unprecedented 60 #1 singles and has sold more than 70 million albums. Having reached platinum or multi-platinum sales status 33 times, Strait has more precious metal than any other country artist, and across all genres only Elvis Presley and the Beatles surpass him.
Rising star Ashley McBryde is set to open for Strait at both February shows. McBryde burst onto the country music scene earlier this year with her major label debut, Girl Going Nowhere. Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen are George’s special guests for the December shows.
