George Strait is set to headline the grand opening of the new Moody Center in Austin on April 29, 2022. “Strait from Moody Center,” presented by Bud Light, will include performances by Willie Nelson & Family and the Randy Rogers Band during the epic celebration.
“I’m so glad I’ll get to ‘sing one with Willie’ and I can’t think of a better place to do it than Austin, Texas,” shares Strait. “Willie is an incredible musician and an even better person, so I know this will be a great night together along with our friends from Randy Rogers Band.”
The special grand opening set will see Strait and Nelson share a stage for only the second time in their storied careers. In addition to being a part of the new 15,000-seat music venue debut, the crowd will also be tipping their hat to Nelson, who celebrates his 89th birthday on the night of the show.
“While planning our grand opening celebration, we knew we had an obligation to pay homage to Lone Star State. George, Willie and Randy are all Texas natives who have built legendary careers while having an unbelievable impact on the country music industry,” comments Jeff Nickler, general manager of Moody Center. “It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”
