SAN ANTONIO, Texas. (Saturday, March 9, 2013) – George Strait is in San Antonio this weekend for the final day of competition at his 31st Annual George Strait Team Roping Classic, so it’s only appropriate that the King of Country celebrates another career milestone in the city today— San Antonio’s Alamodome announced their fastest and largest sell-out of over 72,000 tickets sold in just six minutes as part of his final two-year tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. “This is just incredible,” said a nearly speechless Strait. “To hear this just means so much to me, and I can’t even begin to describe it.
I’ve never—in my entire career—experienced this much excitement. Our last show at the Alamodome will be quite a night thanks to the fans and country radio. It’s the perfect way to end the 2013 tour.”


The tour stop will take place on June 1, 2013 and will mark Strait’s eighth performance at the venue since he opened the facility that is affectionately referred to as, “The house they [the city] built for George.”

Strait’s 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 (top 5 respectively).

Strait is currently working on a forthcoming album slated for release late spring. The album will feature his current single, “Give It All We’ve Got Tonight,” which is Top 15 and climbing. The single could mark Strait’s 60th No. 1 on longtime label, MCA Records Nashville.
