George Strait’s Final Concert Tour 2014 Kicks Off in Shreveport/Bossier City, LA
Superstar George Strait is gearing up for the second leg of his final two year tour – The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. In a press conference streamed live on georgestrait.com from AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, earlier today, Strait revealed the final 26 cities he will visit during the winter and spring legs of his 2014 tour. And Shreveport/Bossier City, La. was the first city on that list for a concert date of Jan. 9 at CenturyLink Center. Additionally, Strait revealed he will have special guests on each tour weekend that will be matched with the corresponding tour date and city via a “tweet to unlock” campaign. Special guests will include Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Young, and more.
Strait, who recently renewed his record deal with MCA Records during a celebration at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, will continue to record 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 see Strait’s live show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career, including many of his 60 No. 1 hits (more than any other artist in any genre).
Additionally, Strait will receive Billboard’s Legend of Live Award in November in a ceremony in New York City. This is the magazine’s most coveted touring award, and he is the first country music artist to achieve this honor.
Tickets for the Shreveport/ Bossier City show go on sale Nov. 8 at the CenturyLink box office beginning at 10 a.m.
