Country music legend George Strait has announced he will be performing in Arkansas next year, with tickets on sale beginning Friday. The singer will take the stage at Simmons Bank Arena in Little Rock on Friday, March 18, 2022.
Strait, who has more No. 1 singles than any other artist in any genre and trails only the Beatles and Elvis Presley in total number of platinum or multi-platinum albums, has a limited number of shows on his calendar in coming months. He is scheduled to perform at Austin City Limits Festival in Texas this October, with a November performance at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and four shows scheduled for Las Vegas in December and in February. He is also slated to headline Rodeo Houston in March, performing two days following this Little Rock concert.
Announced ticket prices for the George Strait at Simmons Bank Arena range from $79 to $229, not including service fees. American Express Card Members will have access to an exclusive presale beginning Friday, September 10 at 10 AM local time. General public ticket sales will begin on Friday, September 17th. There will likely be other presales available for those who have purchased tickets to similar shows or at that venue as well.
