Six shows on George Strait 's The Cowboy Rides Away tour sold out in just a few hours when tickets went on sale Friday. The first concert on January 18 in Lubbock, TX sold out in just 15 minutes.
George says, "I never expected the fans would react like this. It’s just incredible. I really do have the best fans in the world, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all on the road very soon.”
Martina McBride is the opening act for George's last major tour, which will run through 2014.
