– Following on the heels of 2 Nights of Number 1's in Las Vegas, George Strait announced today that he will continue the concept of playing his 60 number 1 hits again in July.
"Back when we announced 2 Nights of Number 1's, I said if the fans wanted to hear more, we would look at it," said Strait. "Well, we heard them loud and clear. This is something they want more of, so that's what they will get."
Strait debuted shows at T-Mobile Arena on April 7-8. Strait played 30 chart toppers on April 7 and a similar number the next night along with other songs.
Strait stepped away from touring in 2014 with The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, culminating with a farewell concert at AT&T Stadium near Dallas that drew a record-setting attendance of 104,793. In 2015, he revealed that he would perform a limited series of exclusive, worldwide engagements at T-Mobile Arena that commenced with a pair of at-capacity shows in April 2016 with fellow Texan Kacey Musgraves. In November, it was announced that the series would continue through 2017, including his most recent dates with Cam.
Upcoming dates are Sept. 1-2 and Dec. 8-9.
