George Strait tickets on sale Oct. 11

EDMOND — Musical icon George Strait has announced the dates for the second leg of his final two-year tour — The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.

In a press conference streamed live on georgestrait.com from AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, Strait revealed the final 26 markets he will visit during the winter and spring legs of his 2014 tour. Additionally, Strait revealed he will have special guests on each tour weekend that will be matched with the corresponding tour date and market via a “tweet to unlock” campaign. Special guests will include Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Young and more.

“The first leg of the tour earlier this year was very fun, but also very emotional,” Strait said. “Every city and venue holds such great memories. I’m really looking forward to seeing our fans out on the road in 2014.”

Strait, who recently renewed his record deal with MCA Records during a celebration at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, will continue to record new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour. The Cowboy Rides Away Tour will offer fans a final opportunity to see Strait’s live show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career, including many of his 60 No. 1 hits. Additionally, Strait will receive Billboard’s Legend of Live Award in November in a ceremony in New York City.

 The Cowboy Rides Away Tour 2014 will arrive at the BOK Center in Tulsa on April 19 and tickets will be available online at www.bokcenter.com, Arby’s Box Office, all Reasor’s outlets or by calling 1-866-7-BOKCTR.
