Country music fans hang on to your hats, George Strait is coming to town. But don’t saddle up just yet because you’ve still got about a year left until the show.
The Frank Erwin Center made the announcement with a video recording from the King of Country himself.
Sporting his trademark cowboy hat, Strait said he’ll be coming to Austin next summer to help the Frank Erwin Center celebrate its 40th anniversary, signing out with a “Hook ‘Em Horns.”
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 3. You can purchase them here.
Strait himself has also performed at the stadium a number of times, including a notable two-night run on September 10 and 11 in 1987.
“What better way to celebrate 40 years than with a legend like George Strait,” said Director of the Frank Erwin Center, Jimmy Earl, CFE. “George has performed at the Erwin Center more times than any other artist and we are honored to have him help us commemorate this huge achievement.”
Strait recently made headlines when he announced his Hand in Hand Texas concert, a benefit event in San Antonio to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. It will include guests Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett.
Scheduled to take place on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Majestic Theater, the event sold out in minutes.
