George Strait and Chris Stapleton start 6-show tour right here in Arizona

The King of Country will be playing live alongside Chris Stapleton right here at State Farm Stadium for the start of a country-wide tour.

PHOENIX — Arizona, get ready for a show that's as smooth as Tennessee whiskey. In all the world you'll never find a love as true as ours for what's coming to Phoenix.

George Strait is joining one of country music's most beloved musicians, Chris Stapleton, for six exclusive performances across the country. And the first one is right here in Arizona!

Strait, Stapleton, and the Grammy Award-winning band, Little Big Town will be performing live at the State Farm Stadium on May 6, 2023.

The one-off stadium dates are taking place in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville and Tampa.

“When we talked about doing these six shows next year with Chris, it was a no-brainer for me. I was all in,” Strait said.

“I love doing these shows with George about as much as I like doing anything. There’s nothing to compare it to,” added Stapleton. “So many of his songs are in the ethos of what country music is. Playing these shows together is a great experience all the way around.”

Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, Nov. 4 at GeorgeStrait.com.
