George Strait announces final two Vegas shows

Tickets Available Friday, April 6th at 10 am PT

The King of Country George Strait will play two final shows in 2018 on December 7-8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with special guests Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 6th at 10 am PT at StraitToVegas.com.

The trio of Texans shared the stage earlier this month for the first shows of 2018 after initially coming together last year for Hand in Hand Texas: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief, which was a humanitarian campaign assembled by Strait— a night that ultimately raised tens of millions of dollars for hurricane relief efforts. Strait will be recognized by his home state with the prestigious Texan of the Year honor on March 22nd in New Braunfels, Texas.

With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during the span of his 30-year career, Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” He has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. The Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that makes him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Keen, who grew up in southwest Houston, has recorded 18 full-length albums for both independent and major record labels, while his songs have been recorded by a variety of artists including Strait, Lovett, Joe Ely, The Highwaymen, Nanci Griffith, and Dixie Chicks.

The Strait To Vegas series started with just six shows in 2016 but was extended with ten more in 2017. The shows in December will be the last of 2018. Strait previously announced performances in Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas in 2018 shows including May 27th at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans; June 1st and 2nd at BOK Center in Tulsa; and June 3rd at Frank Erwin Center in Austin.
