George II?

After selling out his first performance in under 30 minutes, George Strait has added a second date at Dickies Arena.

The country legend will play at Dickies Arena on Saturday, Nov. 23. The performance will begin at 8 p.m. Asleep at the Wheel will again open for Strait. In November, Dickies Arena announced that Strait will play at the arena Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, in the first performance announced for the venue.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. at Ticket prices start at $19.82. Why $19.82? for the lowest price? It’s to commemorate one of Strait’s only Fort Worth performances at Billy Bob’s in 1982. VIP packages will also be available for purchase.
