George Strait Breaks Record For Largest Ticketed Concert In The U.S.

Country music icon George Strait made history with his concert at Kyle Field in College Station on Saturday night, playing to a record-breaking 110,905 fans.

The show set the U.S. record for the largest ticketed concert, surpassing the mark previously held by The Grateful Dead with their 1977 concert at Raceway Park in New Jersey.

“We got some Aggies out there? Oh yeah!” Strait said at the concert, 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!”

The concert also broke the record for the most attended single event at Kyle Field, beating the Aggies football team. The record for a football game was set on October 11, 2014, with 110,663 fans in attendance for a Texas A&M 35-20 loss to SEC West rival Ole Miss.

Strait’s current tour has four remaining dates. The next concert is set for June 29 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.
