Musical icon George Strait announced his plans for his final two-year tour – The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
In a press conference live from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Strait revealed the first 20 markets he will visit during the winter 2013 leg of his tour, including a Saturday, March 23, 2013 concert at Greensboro Coliseum.
Special guest Martina McBride is set to join Strait for the 2013 dates, which begin January 18 in Lubbock, Texas.
Tickets for the Saturday, March 23, 2013 concert at Greensboro Coliseum will go on sale Friday, October 12th at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster outlets at participating Walmart locations and the Greensboro Coliseum box office. Tickets are $69.50 and $89.50 plus any applicable fees.
Strait, who celebrated his 60th birthday earlier this year, shared, “This is going to be a very special, emotional tour for me. Everywhere we’re going holds fond memories and I’m looking forward to paying my respects.” Strait plans to continue recording new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour.
The Cowboy Rides Away Tour will offer fans a final opportunity to take in Strait’s live tour show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career. Strait has thus far yielded 59 No. 1 songs, has earned more than 60 major industry awards, and sold over 65 million albums. He is the only artist in music history to achieve at least one Top Ten hit each year during his 30-year career and was only the second artist at the time (after Eddy Arnold in 1966) to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (2006) while still actively recording and producing chart topping hits and albums.
