George Strait & Messina Touring Group Open Refund Window for Postponed “Strait To Vegas” Shows
Rescheduled Dates for August 28 & 29, 2020 Shows to Be Announced
LAS VEGAS (July 24, 2020) – George Strait has found a second home in Las Vegas since beginning his “Strait to Vegas” series at T-Mobile Arena in 2016, which made the recent decision to postpone his shows originally scheduled for August 28 and 29, 2020 especially difficult. Knowing that many of his fans arrange travel to attend the shows, Strait and Messina Touring Group are working to make the postponement as burden-free as possible.
“I’ve always said that I have the best fans in the world. With Vegas being a travel destination for so many – and one of my favorite places to play – we want to make sure you have time to plan, so when we do announce the rescheduled dates, you’ll be the first to find out,” shares Strait. “Please know how much we’re missing playing for all of you. I can’t wait. Until then, stay safe and don’t worry...we will ride again.”
Beginning today, July 24, fans may opt to receive a refund at their original point of purchase for the next 30 days, should they prefer not to wait for the announcement of rescheduled dates. Fans may also hold on to existing tickets to keep their current seating, which will be honored for the new dates once they are announced.
Since his record-breaking Cowboy Rides Away Tour in 2014, Strait has performed for limited engagements, including three sold-out performances at the top of this year, first with “Visit Wichita Presents Strait to Oz” at INTRUST Bank Arena, then back-to-back nights of “Strait to the Heartland” at Kansas City’s Sprint Center.
The Texas troubadour is one of the only artists or acts in history to have a No. 1 hit every year for over four decades and recently earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his single, “The Weight of the Badge” which followed poignant album cut "God and Country Music" from his 30th studio album, Honky Tonk Time Machine, that The Tennessean notes "illustrates country and religion’s longstanding relationship best.”
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts—more than any other artist in any genre—during the span of his 30+ year career, Strait has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any other Country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
