George Strait will perform his final series of “2 Nights of Number 1s” at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas next weekend, July 28th & 29th, during which he’ll perform every one of his 60 #1 hits over the course of two nights, as well as some other “can’t miss” Strait favorites.
“Well, the Vegas thing that I’ve been doing has been really something that we kind of fell into,” George says in a statement from his label. “It wasn’t planned out when I ended the touring thing back three years ago.
“I always wanted to do some one-offs, and I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to do it, how many I was going to do, when or where, any of that. So, when this Vegas thing came along, well, it just kind of fit what I wanted to do perfectly. What my plans are is to do two nights of number-one songs, since I’ve got 60. Obviously, I can’t do 60 in one night or I may never sing again,” he says with a laugh. “But I’ll try to do 30. I’ll do 30 one night, and I’ll do 30 the next night.
“As I’m thinking about the 60 songs and the 30 songs that I’m going to do, I’m thinking well I’ve got a lot of songs that I have to do on each show that maybe weren’t number ones – like ‘Amarillo By Morning’ wasn’t a number-one song,” he continues. “I can’t not do ‘Amarillo,’ and there’s songs like that that I will still have to do. So, it’s probably going to be a pretty long show each night.”
