George Strait Breaks Records with Historic Concert at Kyle Field

The country music icon breaks the record for ticketed concerts previously held by The Grateful Dead after playing to over 110,000 fans at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

AceShowbiz - George Strait, the "king of country music," has made history with his record-breaking concert at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. On Saturday night, June 15, Strait performed to a crowd of 110,905 fans, setting a new U.S. record for a ticketed concert.

This show broke the previous record held by The Grateful Dead, who played to 107,019 fans in New Jersey in 1977. Strait also surpassed his own Texas record, previously set in 2014.

"We got some Aggies out there? Oh yeah!" Strait said during the concert, referring to 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, even surpassing the attendance of the Aggies football team.

Strait's current tour has four remaining dates, with the next concert set for June 29 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. Among the attendees at Saturday's concert were new Texas A&M football coach Mike Elko and Sen. Ted Cruz.

Strait is known for making and breaking records. He has the most No. 1 singles of any artist in any music genre and has charted a top 10 hit every year for 30 years. He also has the most No. 1 albums in country music history and has sold over 120 million records worldwide.
