George Strait Live at Final stop of ‘Cowboy Rides Away Tour’
Since the early 1980s, George Strait’s been one of the biggest names in country music
In September of 2012, Strait announced that he would be hanging up his cowboy hat and retiring from the road after his final The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. The trek kicked off in January of 2013, and Strait played his “final show” on June 7, 2014, drawing 104,793 fans to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. (Footage from the concert has since been released as a live album and DVD.) Since then, the country icon has performed at awards shows, and although he will not go out on the road again, he has, since 2016, continued to schedule runs of concerts at Las Vegas’ 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena. Strait has also scheduled on-off shows at a few other large venues across the country.
