Strait returns to Vegas

Wednesday, May 19, 2021 – George Strait will return to Las Vegas, hitting the T-Mobile Arena stage for back-to-back "Strait to Vegas" shows on Aug. 13-14 with previously announced special guest Caitlyn Smith.

The shows had been originally slated for Aug. 28-29, 2020, but were postponed due to COVID-19.

"The Ace in the Hole Band and I have been looking forward to this day for a year and a half," said Strait. "I cannot wait to see Vegas and all of my great fans once again. It's been way too long. We will finally ride again. See you soon."

Tickets to the original 2020 dates will be honored for the rescheduled shows: Aug. 28, 2020 tickets will apply to the Aug. 13, 2021, while Aug. 29, 2020 tickets will apply to the Aug. 14 show. Those unable to attend the rescheduled shows are eligible for a refund at the original point of purchase for the next 30 days.

Additional tickets are on sale now.

Strait will also take the stage at Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 13 with special guests Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town.

Since his Cowboy Rides Away Tour in 2014, Strait has performed for limited engagements, including three sold-out performances in 2020, first with "Visit Wichita Presents Strait to Oz" at INTRUST Bank Arena, then back-to-back nights of "Strait to the Heartland" at Kansas City's Sprint Center.

You're also going to hear fiddle and pedal steel ...
CD review - Cold Beer Conversation recording front. This surprise release shows an artist now in his early 60s completely capable of being the leading voice for his brand of country music, which is increasingly rare these days. Strait always has enjoyed a voice that resonates and is dexterous depending on the style. And the Texan sticks with the types of styles that brought him to the top - traditional country ("Let It Go," "Goin' Goin' Gone"), Texas swing ("It Takes All Kinds") and Zydeco ...
CD review - The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium George Strait has been one of the most dependable country music stars for three decades. In this day and age, the Texan is a certifiable throwback. He's low key, not a self-promoter. All's he has done is churn out hit after hit for decade after decade. He has not been the kind of artist who put his finger up in the air either or trading his cowboy hat for a baseball cap. When looking up the definition of traditional country, George Strait sits at the top. Strait tackles 20 songs on ...
