The Los Angeles Convention Center Announces LEED Gold Recertification

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 two additional dates at the new venue, slated for December 2 and 3, 2016. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee will be among the first entertainers to perform at the Las Vegas Arena, kicking off a series of exclusive worldwide concert engagements on April 22 with more shows scheduled for April 23, September 9 and September 10, 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.” 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.
