George Strait plans two new shows for his home country.
The King will headline back-to-back concerts on November 18 and 19, with Tenille Townes opening the show at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth:
George will also perform back-to-back nights at Austin’s Moody Center Grand Opening tonight and tomorrow, in addition to a headlining date. at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on July 30 with Chris Stapleton, Parker McCollum and Little Big Town.
And he recently sat down with Pollstar, telling them the thought crossed his mind that he may never play live again…so all those shows he has coming up make it all the more exciting (especially if you’re lucky enough to attend):
“When live music stopped due to COVID, I wasn’t sure if I could play live again. It really made me sit up and realize how lucky I had been during all those years of being able to do this. I mean, time was passing and I wasn’t getting any younger. It was scary.
I wasn’t ready to quit. I think after being able to come back, it gave me a different appreciation of being able to play for people.
I really, really love doing it and I appreciate it so much that my fans always love to come hear us. As my song says, “I don’t know how many years I have left to do this, but I’m thinking a few”, it’s true.
There is nothing like it and I cannot describe it. Not many people can do it at this level and I feel very lucky and blessed to be one of those few.
Tickets for the Fort Worth shows go on sale next Friday, May 13.
The King in the Lone Star State is not a show to miss…
