George Strait Sets Sell Out Records with 2013 Cowboy Rides Away Tour. When George Strait announced his 2013 Cowboy Rides Away Tour, we knew that it was going to be a huge success. So, it comes as no surprise that he is selling out his tour stops left and right! Most recently, King George sold 72,000 tickets in less than six minutes for his June 1st tour stop in San Antonio, TX! Strait’s tour sales success places him at #1 on Pollstar’s Concert Pulse with an average $1.4 million in gross per show which ranks him over popular concerts like Justin Bieber, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Dave Matthews Band, and The Who (top 5 respectively). I know there are a whole lot of folks who really want to see George Strait live and in concert, but aren’t going to be able to. On the bright side of things for y’all, he is currently working on an upcoming album, which includes current single , “Give It All We’ve Got Tonight,” and is scheduled to release in late spring.
