Country music legend George Strait finally made his way back to the city of Las Vegas to perform in front of thousands of fans. He took to social media early on Tuesday afternoon to see just how many of his followers made it to his show.
It was a long wait — almost a year in fact — that country music fans had to wait to see George Strait in Vegas. He had previously planned on having two shows in August of 2020. As we all know by now, he and other live performers had to push back their shows thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. But things felt a little bit more like normal when we saw George Strait up on the stage over the weekend.
The King of Country took to Twitter to see if his faithful fans made the trip to see him live in Vegas.
“#StraitToVegas is back! Were you there this weekend?”
George Strait’s two August stops in Vegas were definitely a godsend for country music fans. But it was also a major milestone even for Strait. His two shows over the weekend marked the 30th stops in his Strait to Vegas since first launching it back in 2016. Shoot, sounds like Strait is making Las Vegas his second home.
Country fans, meanwhile, could never have enough George Strait. They are just happy that he is back and performing live.
“The King is back. I was there,” one fan replied to his post.
“Yes we were there! Best concert ever! I hope to get to see you at least one more time!” another fan exclaimed.
And for one fellow Twitter user, they couldn’t make his Vegas show. But they are going to try and make one in Atlanta.
“Wish I had been there. Hoping to make it to ATL!”
George Strait Adds Four New Las Vegas Dates
If you thought that maybe George Strait would stop performing in Las Vegas after his 30th appearance, think again. The country music legend already has four more stops planned for Sin City and his Strait to Vegas series.
The first of those stops will take place on back-to-back nights in early December. On Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, Strait will make his way back to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. And fans can expect to see a familiar face once again at those shows. The confirmed opening act for Strait will be Caitlyn Smith. Fans may recall that she recently joined him in Vegas as part of his performances over the weekend.
Similarly, the next two dates in the Strait to Vegas series will come on back-to-back nights in February. The King will be back in T-Mobile Arena on February 11 and February 12. This time around, however, Tenille Townes will be featured as his opening act.
