20140425 George-StraightHIDALGO – George Strait is singing his songs the way he always has, but it’s his last round in a packed calendar for his farewell tour that is making a stop at State Farm Arena on June 5 to say good-bye to his Rio Grande Valley fans. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 2, at 10 a.m. for the Valley concert and his fans’ last opportunity to see him in a live tour performance.

The “Cowboy Rides Away” tour is in its final leg as he closes out a two-year stint of visiting some of his favorite stops during his 30-plus year career. The music icon will be singing many of his 60 No. 1 hits. He’s achieved more than any other artist in any genre.

In a pre-tour release after his 2013 leg, Strait said, “The first leg of the tour earlier this year was very fun, but also very emotional. Every city and venue holds such great memories. I’m really looking forward to seeing our fans out on the road in 2014.”

Strait has been with MCA Records from the get-go, and he’s signed a new contract. Although fans won’t see him on tour any longer, he will continue to record new music and play select dates occasionally.

The June 5 concert begins at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are ranging from $89 to $379, plus fees and taxes. Go to, call 800-745-3000 or call the Arena Box Office at 843-6688.
