Following overwhelming success of 18 “Strait to Vegas” shows with two more approaching this December, the superstar known worldwide as The King of Country, George Strait, will return to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with special guest Ashley McBryde for two shows on February 1 and 2, 2019. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 19 at 10 am local time via www.StraitToVegas.com.
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during the span of his 30-year career, Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” He has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait is the only act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
The “Strait to Vegas” series began with six shows in 2016 and extended with 10 more in 2017. In 2018, Strait headlined Bayou Country Superfest to a sold-out Mercedes Benz Superdome crowd in New Orleans, Louisiana, two nights in Tulsa, Oklahoma and one night in Austin, Texas. The icon will play his final shows of 2018 this December 7 and 8 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena.
