George Strait has postponed two upcoming stadium shows until 2021, pushing back concerts in Indiana and Minnesota amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Citing fan-safety concerns during the global coronavirus outbreak, Strait has decided to hold off on his two biggest concerts of the year. His show at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, was originally set for August 15, 2020, but will now move to August 7, 2021, with special guests Chris Stapleton and Brothers Osborne.

Likewise, Strait’s U.S. Bank Stadium show in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was initially planned for August 22, 2020, but will now take place July 31, 2021, with special guests Stapleton and Little Big Town. Existing tickets for both shows will be honored, and those unable to attend can get a full refund within 30 days.

Interestingly, the announcement does not change the two remaining shows on Strait’s 2020 calendar. His August 28-29 dates in Las Vegas — part of his ongoing Strait to Vegas residency — appear to be going forward as planned.
