GEORGE STRAIT ANNOUNCES NEW DATE FOR POSTPONED MINNEAPOLIS STADIUM SHOW
The King of Country to Play U.S. Bank Stadium on November 13, 2021
Notre Dame Stadium Show Originally Postponed to August 7, 2021 Now Available for Refunds
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With optimism around a return to live music growing, George Strait has announced that his stadium show at Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium will now take place on Saturday, November 13, 2021 with previously announced special guests Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town.
Existing tickets will be honored for the new date, while fans unable to attend are eligible for a refund at the original point of purchase for the next 30 days.
Strait had also planned to play a postponed stadium show at Notre Dame Stadium in August. However, with the safety of fans as the highest priority, it has been decided to cancel this show for summer 2021. Fans who have already purchased tickets will receive a refund. Strait’s team is also working to identify a future date to return to the iconic Notre Dame Stadium.
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 2020, 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.
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. The Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his latest single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He 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.
