George Strait will return to Las Vegas in 2017 for a limited run of very special dates at the T-Mobile Arena, giving fans an all-new show in a very special format.
Billed as 2 Nights of Number 1s, the limited engagement will span four weekends. The special shows will comprise back-to-back nights of No. 1 hits from Strait, featuring live performances of his record-breaking run of 60 No. 1 singles, as well as fan favorites over the course of each weekend.
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Cam will join Strait as his support act for the special performances.
Strait announced the shows just prior to a special live streaming album release concert he is performing to mark the release of his new box set, Strait Out of the Box: Part 2, which features three discs of material culled from across his career since 1996, when he released the first installment of the collection.
“Going back through all the songs for this box set does bring back a lot of old memories,” he says in a press release. “A lot of them we considered for radio singles and for whatever reason, we just picked something else. It was not that hard to pick them after I looked through them because there are just so many that are my favorites.”
The 2017 shows follow Strait’s sold-out Strait to Vegas concert series at T-Mobile Arena, which marked his return to the stage after his farewell tour wrapped in 2014. That run of dates is nearing the end of its first year of exclusive engagements with a pair of shows on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3, as well as sold-out shows in 2017 on Friday, Feb. 17 and Saturday, Feb. 18.
Tickets for all of the newly-announced dates will go on sale Friday, Dec. 2 at 10PM PT at StraitToVegas.com.
George Strait, 2 Nights of Number 1s Dates: April 7-8 July 28-29 Sept. 1-2 Dec. 8-9
