Home State George Strait Concert to Be Live Streamed
George Strait will celebrate the impending release of his new box set, Strait Out of the Box: Part 2, with a concert in his home state of Texas on Wednesday night (Nov. 16) -- and there's good news for fans: The show will be available to watch live via the internet.
According to a press release, Strait and his Ace in the Hole Band will take the stage at an unnamed Texas dancehall on Wednesday, and although tickets are not available for purchase, fans will be able to live stream the show. The concert is set to begin at 7PM CT and will be available for viewing on Strait.WranglerNetwork.com.
Set for release on Friday (Nov. 18), Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 features three discs, containing a total of 56 tracks: 36 hit singles (including 26 No. 1s and Strait’s newest single, “Goin’ Goin’ Gone”), 18 album cuts and two brand-new tunes, “Kicked Outta Country” and “You Gotta Go Through Hell.” All of the songs included in the collection were curated by Strait himself, from music released between 1996 and 2016.
“Going back through all the songs for this box set does bring back a lot of old memories,” Strait explains. “A lot of them we considered for radio singles, and for whatever reason, we just picked something else. It was not that hard to pick them after I looked through them because there are just so many that are my favorites.”
Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 picks up where Strait Out of the Box, Strait’s 1995 box set, left off. That four-disc collection features music released by Strait between 1976 and 1995, and has, to date, sold more than 8 million copies, making it one of the best-selling musical box sets of all time.
Although Strait retired from touring in 2014, he is still performing occasionally. He currently has shows scheduled in Las Vegas, Nev., on Dec. 2 and Dec. 3, 2016, and on Feb. 17 and 18, 2017.
