George Strait
George Strait is the only artist in history to have a top 10 hit every year for 30 years.

Fort Worth has finally crossed the King of Country’s mind.

Country legend George Strait is set to play at Dickies Arena on Nov. 22, 2019. The performance, which is the first concert announced at the venue, will begin at 8 p.m. Asleep at the Wheel will open for Strait.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 7 at Ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices range from $19.82 to $250, with limited tickets available at $19.82 to commemorate one of Strait’s only Fort Worth performances, at Billy Bob’s in 1982. VIP packages will also be available for purchase.

“We are thrilled to make Texas legend George Strait our first concert announcement at Dickies Arena,” said Trail Drive Management Corp.’s Matt Homan, president and general manager of Dickies Arena. “This performance will be in one of George Strait’s most intimate arena settings, and we can’t wait to bring this to Fort Worth.”

Dickies Arena will be a 14,000-seat multipurpose venue adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth. The facility is the result of a pioneering public-private partnership between the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, the state of Texas and a group of private-sector participants, including foundations, individuals and organizations.

The arena will be owned by the City of Fort Worth and managed by the not-for-profit operating entity Trail Drive Management Corp. The state-of-the-art arena, scheduled to open in November 2019, will host concerts, sporting events and family entertainment, and will be the new home to Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo performances.
