Out of the blue clear sky comes news that George Strait is on his way back to Fort Worth. The King of Country will play two shows at Fort Worth's Dickies Arena, November 17-18, 2023, with special guest Caitlyn Smith.
According to an April 7 release, the two-night stand is a reprise of Strait’s two nights at Dickies Arena in 2022, which both sold out within hours. So let's get to that ticket information quickly:
Tickets to the 2023 shows go on sale to the general public at 10 am Friday, April 14 via Ticketmaster.com.
To purchase pre-sale tickets, fans can go to Ticketmaster.com on Thursday, April 13 from 10 am-10 pm and enter unlock code: DICKIES. American Express Early Access, Official Platinum, and Fan Club presales start as early as 10 am Tuesday, April 11; more info on those levels here.
Strait officially retired from touring way back in 2014 with a huge final show at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, but he's remained busy in the past nine years. He played two concerts at Dickies Arena in 2019 as one of the first events at the venue, where he famously promised the crowd, "I'll be back," and has made good on that promise. He's also played the Houston Rodeo, and he took the stage with Willie Nelson to open Austin's Moody Center last year.
Strait has also released a couple of new albums in the intervening years, most recently 2019's Honky Tonk Time Machine, which naturally went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts.
The release reminds that the Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for more than three decades; he recently earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his single “The Weight of the Badge,” a tribute to police officers.
