George Strait Announces 2013 Concert Tour Dates!

King George is hittin’ the road again! We’ve got your scoop on the schedule for the 2013 George Strait tour!

Updated with tour dates!
Well George Strait fans, we’ve known it was coming for a while now, and the day is finally here! On September 4th, Team Strait posted the following on the official GS facebook account:

From Team Strait: Hey George Strait Fans! It is time to get excited about the 2013 George Strait Tour. George will be holding a press conference in late September and will be announcing his tour dates for next year. Rumor has it that other major announcements may be made as well. Stay tuned for further updates.

And now there’s a press conference scheduled for today at 12:35pm Central with a big announcement. We know the tour will be covered, but the big mystery is around what the other announcement will be. George has always had amazing tour partners so perhaps it’s another powerhouse pairing? Other fans are guessing that it’s a retirement, but for the sake of the rest of us who live to see George on tour I’m hoping that’s not the case! Either way, the minute the press conference starts we will be updating this post as well as live-sharing the news on Twitter (@CountryMusicNB) and on FaceBook (

  1. He's one man I would have loved to see in concert but I was never able to get to where he was playing.

  2. I’ve been luck to see him in concert 3 times and I have all of his cd’s plus his movie “Pure Country”. I never cared for country music until George Strait appeared on the music scene and I’ve been a steady country music fan ever since. I’ve also never joined a fan club until I joined his and I’ll always proudly be a George Strait music lover. I look forward to seeing and hearing from him in whatever venue he chooses to do as he approaches his “golden years” of live. Long live the King-George Strait.

  4. I would love it if he would come to the Pittsburgh PA area. He is one person in country music that could put on a concert anywhere and it would be sold out!
