Ticket Down announces that tickets for George Strait at the Staples Center in Los Angeles will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 27th. The interest in this particular concert at the Staples Center which is also the home of the Los Angeles Lakers has been phenomenal. This will be George Strait's final tour and his fans don't want to miss seeing him one more time.
When it comes to country music, there are few artists that can transcend the styles and evolution of music and still remain relevant and popular. One of those artists is deciding to retire from the music business, but is giving his fans – young and old – the opportunity to see him live on more time on The Cowboy Rides Away tour. That artist is none other than King George, George Strait.
Strait released his first single to country radio in 1981 and has an unprecedented track record in the music business with most of his released singles reaching the top 10 Hot Country charts, according to Billboard. He also has 44 number one hits on the Billboard country charts. Throughout his career, Strait has amassed 60 number one songs, more than any artist in history. In fact, in early 2013, Strait's record label, MCA Nashville, helped promote the "60 for 60" movement in hopes of getting Strait his 60th number one hit with his single Give it All We Got Tonight before he reached his 60th birthday. It was something that was achieved just weeks before the legendary artist hit the milestone birthday.
Strait's final tour in the music business will be one of the most anticipated musical events in 2014. The tour will begin in January with select dates including stops in Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; and San Diego, California. His tour will continue with stops in Los Angeles, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Nashville, Tennessee; Atlanta, Georgia; and will conclude with a stop at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys sometime in May.
Of course, this is the music business and one never knows if his retirement will stick, so you may be able to catch Strait on a few shows in the future, but this will certainly be the last time Strait spends an extended period of time away from his family. That is the purpose of his retirement from the touring business and for fans that want to be able to tell their kids and grandkids that they saw the legend live, time is running out.
