The show set the U.S. record for a ticketed concert, previously held by The Grateful Dead with their 1997 concert at Raceway Park in New Jersey.

"We got some Aggies out there? Oh yeah!" Strait said at the concert, per Chron, referencing the Texas A&M University team. "I’m ashamed to say this, but this is my first time to ever be in Kyle Field. Damn! Just invite me back!"


It's not just any concert record George Strait shattered; this one also broke the record for the most attended single event at Kyle Field, even beating the Aggies football team. The record for a football game was set on Oct. 11, 2014, with 110,663 fans in attendance for a Texas A&M 35-20 loss to SEC West rival Ole Miss. Football who?

So, if you’re looking for the biggest, baddest, most unforgettable concert experiences, you better saddle up and head to Texas. George Strait has set the bar sky-high, and we’re all here for it.
