In just six minutes, more than 72,000 tickets were sold to George Strait’s tour stop at San Antonio’s Alamodome, marking the venue’s fastest and largest sell-out. The show will take place June 1 and is part of George’s final two-year The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
This will be George’s eighth performance at the venue since he opened the facility that is referred to as “The house they [the city] built for George.” The Cowboy Rides Away Tour placed No. 1 on Pollstar’s Concert Pulse last week, averaging $1.4 million in gross sales per show, topping Justin Bieber, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Dave Matthews Band, and The Who.
George is currently working on a new album, set for release in late spring. The album will feature his current single, “Give It All We’ve Got Tonight,” which is in the Top 15 and climbing. If the single reaches No. 1, it would be George’s 60th No. 1 hit. Fans are encouraged to help spread the word by visiting sixtyforsixty.com.
