One should better know that apart from the reason that George Strait is a Texan native, born in Poteet, Texas; it’s also not surprising that this troubadour would never get tired of giving back to his native state. His music catalog comprised of several songs about Texas may it be the weather of Texas or all his exes that live in the Lone Star State. While he had been really busy these past few days helping his people get back to their feet after the devastating catastrophe brought by Hurricane Harvey and other victims outside Texas after Hurricane Irma, his efforts would not stop after Hand-in-Hand telethon as he drops another concert that’ll take place in Austin, Texas in 2018.
The Erwin Centre, George Strait
Summer is going to be a Strait season in Texas as the King of Country, George Strait officially announced his Pure Country concert to take place in Erwin Center on June 3, 2018. As quoted on Frank Erwin Center, an event venue owned by University of Texas:
“The Frank Erwin Center will celebrate its 40th Anniversary with country music legend, George Strait, who will play an exclusive “STRAIT TEXAS” show on June 3, 2018. Presented by YETI®, this one-of-a-kind performance is currently the only Texas show on the King of Country’s concert calendar.
Since its doors opened in 1977, the Frank Erwin Center has attained a rich and diverse history ranging from breakthrough musical performances and sporting events to visits from world leaders and former presidents. Strait has played an integral role in the venue’s legacy, having performed a total of 13 times, starting with his first show on Sept. 10, 1987 to his most recent performance on Jan. 10, 2014.
“What better way to celebrate 40 years than with a legend like George Strait,” said Director of the Frank Erwin Center, Jimmy Earl, CFE. “George has performed at the Erwin Center more times than any other artist and we are honored to have him help us commemorate this huge achievement.”
“We are thrilled to bring George Strait to Austin to help our friends at the Frank Erwin Center celebrate 40 years,” said CEO of Messina Touring Group, Louis Messina. “We’ve had the pleasure of bringing many shows to this iconic venue, and we’re looking forward to honoring its unique history with a great performance.””
