The “King of Country Music” to play Las Vegas Arena on
December 2 and 3, 2016; tickets for all dates to go on sale to the
public Friday, October 2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 29, 2015) – As soon as George Strait announced that he would be taking the stage for select dates at the Las Vegas Arena
in 2016, fans started lighting up social media with their plans to see
the “King of Country Music” perform in Sin City. Due to overwhelming
demand for the four shows announced last week, Strait will be adding December 2 and 3, 2016 to the schedule.

The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee will be among the first
entertainers to perform at the Las Vegas Arena, with a series of
exclusive worldwide concert engagements on April 22, April 23, September
9, September 10, December 2 and December 3, 2016. GRAMMY, ACM and CMA
Award-winning singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves, who recently released
her second studio album Pageant Material to critical acclaim, will open for Strait on all dates.

“I said all along I wasn’t going to tour anymore, but I also said that I
wasn’t retiring by any means and I still wanted to do some dates,” said
Strait. “I’m very excited to be coming back out and playing for the
fans out there. I’m looking forward to it so much, singing those songs
that I love so much and haven’t done in a while. I’m really, really
looking forward to being able to play in the new Las Vegas Arena. I hear
it’s just unbelievable. I can’t wait.”

Rick Arpin, senior vice president of entertainment and development for
MGM Resorts International, said, “We always knew George was the King of
Country, but the unprecedented fan reaction following last week’s
announcement has been incredible.  It is exciting to be able to offer
fans worldwide two additional opportunities to see this exclusive
engagement during the National Finals Rodeo. These performances will add
to the star power of the Las Vegas Arena’s opening season.”

Strait’s new album, Cold Beer Conversation, is available now at Apple Music and Walmart
and features 13 songs including his latest single, “Cold Beer
Conversation.” It is the first new studio album in two years from the
MCA Nashville recording artist. His last studio album was the
Gold-certified Love is Everything, which featured the Platinum-certified No. 1 hit (and 60th No. 1 hit of his career) “Give It All We Got Tonight” as well as the Gold-certified hit “I Got A Car.” Strait also released The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium CD and DVD in 2014, celebrating his mega-successful, two-year final tour.

Tickets for the 2016 concert series will go on sale Friday, Oct. 2 at 10:00 a.m. PT via
and range in price from $75 to $200 plus applicable fees. American
Express® Card Members can purchase tickets for the December 2 and 3
