George Strait has added two more Las Vegas concerts to his calendar. He will perform at the new Las Vegas Arena on Dec. 2 and 3, 2016.

During a press conference last week, Strait announced four Las Vegas concerts in 2016 – scheduled for April 22, April 23, Sept. 9, and Sept. 10. Tickets to all six shows go on sale Friday, Oct. 2. Kacey Musgraves will open for Strait on all dates.

“I said all along I wasn’t going to tour anymore, but I also said that I wasn’t retiring by any means and I still wanted to do some dates,” Strait said. “I’m very excited to be coming back out and playing for the fans out there. I’m looking forward to it so much, singing those songs that I love so much and haven’t done in a while. I’m really, really looking forward to being able to play in the new Las Vegas Arena. I hear it’s just unbelievable. I can’t wait.”

Rick Arpin, senior vice president of entertainment and development for MGM Resorts International, said, “We always knew George was the King of Country, but the unprecedented fan reaction following last week’s announcement has been incredible. It is exciting to be able to offer fans worldwide two additional opportunities to see this exclusive engagement during the National Finals Rodeo. These performances will add to the star power of the Las Vegas Arena’s opening season.”

Strait released a new album, Cold Beer Conversation, on Sept. 25.
