Big Ticket Sales For George Strait’s Final Concert Tour [VIDEO]
I don’t think it has quiet sunk in just yet that the legendary icon of country music, George Strait, is on his final concert tour. George Strait’s “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour” is officially underway with big ticket sales. His first two shows were sell-outs and 77,000 tickets for the Houston, Texas Livestock & Rodeo Show in March were snapped up in just two minutes. It seems fans are coming out in droves to see the King of Country perform one last time.
Over 30,000 fans caught his shows in Lubbock, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma over the weekend (Jan. 19-20). George started the show by saying: “Hello, Oklahoma City. It’s so good to be here tonight,. “(It’s) probably my last one here and that’s sad because I’m gonna miss you. Thank you for coming and thank you for coming all those years, too.”
As the old saying goes nothing lasts forever, and many fans groaned when they heard the opening of Strait’s customary closer, “The Cowboy Rides Away.” Folks were singing and swaying, waving their arms and holding up their lighted cell phones.
When the song was finished, Strait gave a big sigh as he made one last circle around the stage. The emotion was obvious in his face as he waved and pointed to the fans, bowed and patted his heart. Has to be hard to say that last goodbye to his longtime fans.
“Good night, everybody. Thank you,” he said, spreading his arms wide and basking in one more collective cheer.
And then he was gone, walking off the stage one last time like a true troubadour.
