Iconic country singer George Strait won't leave Las Vegas behind just yet. After promoting his final "2 Nights of Number 1's" residency shows this December, the 65 year old will play an additional two shows at T-Mobile Arena in 2018. The "Amarillo By Morning" singer will perform at the Sin City venue on Feb. 2 and 3.
“We said from the beginning that we would listen to the fans and follow what they want,” Strait said during the announcement. “Fan support is just as strong now as it was when we started, and we are responding to that interest by adding shows in 2018.”
Tickets for the newly-added Vegas gigs go on sale Friday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. PDT exclusively on AXS.com. Strait will call upon fellow country pioneers Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen to open both shows.
The Vegas stops are the latest on the growing tour itinerary for Strait in 2018. The singer already announced three shows outside of Nevada, with two stops at BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. set for June 1 and 2 as well as a June 3 show at Frank Erwin Center in Austin. His final T-Mobile Arena performances of 2017 are set for Dec. 8 and 9. Tickets are still available for both shows on AXS.com.
Prior to his December shows at T-Mobile Arena Strait is slated to perform at Country Rising at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The benefit show will be held to raise funds for hurricane relief efforts and the recent Las Vegas shooting. It will also feature performances from Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town and more.
