George Strait kicks off 2020 with some big show announcements. The King of Country Music is heading to Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium on Aug. 22 with special guests Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town and more. Tickets available Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. CT at ticketmaster.com.
When the three acts were last together in the sold-out Mercedes-Benz Superdome at the 2018 Bayou Country Superfest, the New Orleans Advocate’s headline noted: “George Strait Ruled, Chris Stapleton Rocked,” while Little Big Town “Owned the Dome.”
Additionally, “Strait to Vegas” shows return to T-Mobile Arena August 28-29. There, King George will be joined by a special guest—acclaimed singer/songwriter and Monument recording artist Caitlyn Smith, whose highly anticipated second studio album, Supernova, will be released in March. Tickets available Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. PT via straittovegas.com.
Since his record-breaking Cowboy Rides Away Tour in 2014, Strait has performed for limited engagements highlighted by the sold-out “Strait to Vegas” shows, most recently in December 2019. Ahead of the newly announced Aug. dates, Strait will also return to the heartland in 2020 with sold-out performances at INTRUST Bank Arena this Friday, Jan. 24 for “Visit Wichita Presents Strait to Oz” as well as “Strait to the Heartland” at Kansas City’s Sprint Center on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Sunday, Jan. 26.
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 has collected 33 platinum or multi-platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and recently earned his 100th entry on the
Billboard Country Airplay chart with his latest single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He 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.
