George Strait Concert Last Night Breaks U.S. Attendance Record at Texas A&M’s Kyle Field

Country music legend George Strait made history last night at Texas A&M University’s Kyle Field in College Station. The iconic singer drew an astounding crowd of 110,905 fans, setting a new record for the largest attendance at a ticketed concert in U.S. history. This remarkable feat surpassed the previous record of 107,019 set by The Grateful Dead in 1977 at Raceway Park in New Jersey.

Strait, known as the King of Country Music, delighted the massive audience with a spectacular performance that spanned over two hours. Clad in his signature cowboy hat and denim attire, the 72-year-old Texan took to the stage amidst cheers and applause that echoed throughout the stadium. His setlist included classic hits like “The Chair,” “Ocean Front Property,” and “All My Exes Live in Texas,” along with previews of new songs from his upcoming album “Cowboys And Dreamers.”

The concert at Kyle Field not only set a national attendance record but also marked the largest single-event gathering in the history of the stadium, surpassing even the attendance records set by Texas A&M football games. The electrifying atmosphere was further enhanced by special guest performances from fellow Texan artists Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman, both adding to the unforgettable night of country music.

Fans from across Texas and beyond flocked to College Station to witness this historic event, with many describing it as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The concert not only showcased George Strait’s enduring appeal and influence in the music industry but also underscored Kyle Field’s versatility as a premier venue for major cultural events beyond football.

Reflecting on the monumental evening, Strait expressed gratitude to the enthusiastic crowd, remarking on the honor of performing at Kyle Field for the first time in his illustrious career. The concert’s success cements George Strait’s legacy as one of the greatest country music artists of all time, with his impact resonating far beyond the borders of Texas.
