George Strait Announces Little Rock Concert Date for 2022
George Strait is headed to Arkansas. The country legend will perform a one-night event, titled Strait to the Natural State, at the Simmons Bank Arena in Little Rock on March 18, 2022.
Strait has kept a light performing schedule since officially retiring from touring after the Cowboy Rides Away Tour wrapped in 2014. Nonetheless, he has a slate of live shows on the horizon, including headlining sets at both weekends of the 2021 Austin City Limits Music Festival, set to kick off Oct. 1 and Oct. 8, respectively.
Strait is also set to perform alongside Eric Church at the second annual ATLive concert series in Atlanta, Ga. The two-day event, which also features rising star Caitlyn Smith and rock acts including Metallica, is set for Nov. 5-6 at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Other upcoming dates include a performance at the U.S. Bank Arena in Minneapolis, Minn., on Nov. 13 and a return to the Houston Rodeo on March 20, 2022.
Since 2016, Strait has held a residency in Las Vegas, appropriately titled Strait to Vegas. To date, Strait has performed 30 concerts at the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip. The singer announced in August of 2021 that he was adding four additional Vegas shows, set for Dec. 3-4 of this year and Feb. 11-12, 2022.
Strait played two shows in Vegas in August of 2021, which were originally set for Aug. 2020 but had to be rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in adherence with social distancing protocols. Smith joined him as the opener at both shows.
