George Strait Breaks Attendance Record

To his record-breaking audience of 110,905 ticket-buying fans gathered on Saturday night (6.15) at Kyle Field at Texas A&M in College Station, country music icon George Strait said “What’s going on everybody?” “We got some Aggie’s out there? Oh yeah! I’m ashamed to say this, but this is my first time to ever be in Kyle Field … damn! Just invite me back, I’ll come!” 

Over the weekend, the Texas-born legend set an all-time attendance record  for a ticketed concert in the United States. Previously held by The Grateful Dead (who attracted 107,019 fans to their 1977 show at Raceway Park in New Jersey,) Strait’s show also set a new record for Texas A&M Kyle Field for a single event (previously recorded on October 11, 2014, at 110,633, for a Texas A&M game against Ole Miss) for George Strait: The King at Kyle Field with special guests, fellow Lone Star natives and MCA labelmates, Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman.

Throughout his illustrious career, George Strait has set many-a-record, including the most #1 charting singles of any artist in any genre, the only artist to have a Top 10 song every year for 30 years, and the most #1 albums, gold albums, and platinum albums in the history of country music including twenty of his sixty #1 hits.  

Strait’s remaining 2024 concert dates include 6/29 Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City, Utah, 7/13 Ford Field Detroit, Michigan, 7/20 Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois, and 12/7 Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada,
