George Strait is announcing a new summer concert date that should make some country music fans very happy.
The “King of Country” announced Tuesday that he is set to headline a concert on Aug. 22 at Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium, and he’s teaming up with two of country music’s biggest names: Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town.Additional acts expected to join the show will be announced at a later date.
The “Unwound” artist also announced additional dates, Aug. 28 and Aug. 29, to his Las Vegas concert “Strait to Vegas.” He’ll be joined by “Starfire” artist Caitlyn Smith.
Strait has held his “Strait to Vegas” in Sin City for the last three years at the T-Mobile Arena with his most recent being in December 2019. His 2020 concert series currently has four dates: Jan. 31, Feb. 1 and the two dates in August he just added.
According to Strait’s website, he’s also expected to make concert appearances Jan. 24 in Kansas and Jan. 25 and Jan. 26 in Missouri.
Tickets for both his Minneapolis and August Las Vegas concerts will go on sale on Jan. 31 on Ticketmaster and Strait to Vegas, respectively.
Strait has been an icon in country music for decades, inspiring a new generation of country musicians.
Garth Brooks said the veteran musician inspired him to pursue a career in music.
“I was going to be a professional athlete even though my athletic abilities were telling me way early that I was not going to be a professional athlete,” Brooks told the Nashville Tennessean, part of the USA TODAY Network. “When I heard Strait, a bell went off and it said, ‘That’s who you want to be.”
