George Strait was in San Antonio, Texas over the weekend for the final day of competition at his Annual George Strait Team Roping Classic and celebrated a milestone in the city.  The Alamodome announced their fastest and largest sell-out of over 72,000 people (tickets) in six, (that’s right 6 minutes) minutes as part of his final two year tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
The tour stop will take place on June 1, 2013 and will mark Strait’s eighth performance at the venue since he opened the facility that is affectionately referred to as, “The house they [the city] built for George.”  Strait’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour placed No. 1 on Pollstar’s Concert Pulse last week, averaging $1.4 million in gross sales per show, topping Justin Bieber, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Dave Matthews Band, and The Who (top 5 respectively).
Strait is currently working on a forthcoming album slated for release late spring.
