Country legend George Strait is already looking ahead to 2020 with a pair of newly-announced concert dates. The iconic star will visit two cities next January despite being officially “retired” from touring.
Playing on back-to-back nights, Strait will first play at the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas on January 24th for Visit Wichita Presents Strait to Oz. The next night (January 25th) he’ll hit Kansas City, Missouri’s Sprint Center for Strait to the Heartland with special guests Asleep at the Wheel. Tickets for both shows go on sale next Friday (May 17th).
Strait famously stepped away from traditional touring in 2014 after a decades-long run which landed the Texas troubadour in the Country Music Hall of Fame. But he’s continued to perform at select one-off concerts and through his ongoing Strait to Vegas residency at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
This year Strait will bring his show to Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio (June 8th); Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts (August 17th); and Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas (November 22nd and 23rd); plus four additional Strait to Vegas shows on August 23rd and 24th, and December 6th and 7th.
Strait recently released Honky Tonk Time Machine album, which became the 27th of his career to debut at No.1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. His current single “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar” is inside country radio’s Top 20 and climbing.
