George Strait Announces Date, Lineup for All-Star Final Concert
George Strait has announced the date, venue and lineup for the star-studded final concert of his touring career.
The iconic country star, who recently took home Entertainer of the Year in the 2013 CMA Awards, will perform the final date of his the Cowboy Rides Away Tour on June 7, 2014 at the 100,000-seat capacity AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The farewell show will feature an all-star lineup that includes Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack. Each artist will perform three songs. Six-time Grammy-winning Texas swing band Asleep at the Wheel will serve as the opening act for the once-in-a-lifetime show.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday, Dec. 6 at 10AM CST via Strait’s official website here.
Although this will mark the final date of Strait’s touring career, he has extended his deal with MCA for five more albums, and he intends to perform select dates in the future, though he will not tour.
