ARROWHEAD EVENTS TO HOST “KING OF COUNTRY”
GEORGE STRAIT IN JULY 30 RETURN TO GEHA FIELD
AT ARROWHEAD STADIUM
Parker McCollum, Chris Stapleton & Little Big Town Join as Support
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Arrowhead Events announced that George Strait, the “King of Country Music” and three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, will visit GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium for a one-night-only concert event on Saturday, July 30 at 7 p.m. Making his first return to the venue since 2001, Strait will be joined by special guests Parker McCollum, Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town, each gracing the stadium stage for the first time.
“For nearly two hours, he and his Ace in the Hole Band delivered nearly two and a half dozen songs, giving another big, rowdy crowd plenty to sing along to and plenty to cheer about,” noted the Kansas City Star during Strait’s most recent visit to the city, during 2014’s Cowboy Rides Away arena tour. “When you’re that good and you’ve played those songs so many times, it’s not hard to make what’s exceptional look easy.”
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts—more than any other artist in any genre—during the span of his 30+ year career, Strait has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any other Country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and recently earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his latest single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
The show will mark the 54th concert or music festival in GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium history and will be the 15th concert performance that the stadium has hosted since 2011. The 2022 show will be Strait’s fourth performance (1998-99, 2001) at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
“George Strait has a history of great performances at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him back for the first time since 2001 this summer. We’re looking forward to seeing the rest of this talented lineup take the stage as well,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “We know how beloved George is in Kansas City and across the nation, and we are thrilled to have him return to our stadium for another incredible show.”
