The final stop on George Strait’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour 2014 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas sold out within hours of tickets going on sale on December 6. The show, featuring a star-studded lineup, set to take place June 7, 2014. More than 100,000 fans will be in attendance.
“Wow,” George said. “To see this response from the fans to our final show is humbling and exciting at the same time. This is going to be an incredible night and I feel very blessed this holiday knowing how many of you we’ll get to see next year on our final tour.”
“When we sat down to plan the final touring years in a career as iconic as George Strait’s, we knew we had to do it right,” Louis Messina of The Messina Group said. “Well, I don’t know about you, but this feels like a pretty good way to honor George and his music while saying farewell to his days on the road… 100,000 tickets, that’s big time!”
The all-star lineup includes Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack, who will each play three songs. Asleep At The Wheel will be the opening act for the concert.
Additionally, George will auction off two pairs of front row seats plus meet-and-greet passes to each show on his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. Proceeds benefit The Jenifer Strait Foundation, a foundation that focuses its donations on various children’s charities including Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio and St. Jude’s Ranch.
