Special Guest for the evening will be Tim McGraw, with an appearance from Faith Hill
ARLINGTON, Texas – The reigning Country Music Award (CMA) Entertainer of the Year, George Strait, will perform for the first time ever at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Saturday, May 31, 2014, as part of “Quicken Loans Presents George Strait’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour 2014.” This is the second leg of Strait’s two-year final tour. The highly successful tour has already sold-out 16 tour stops for 2014, with only four more venues yet to release tickets for sale.
Each show on this landmark tour features a unique special guest. For Gillette Stadium, the special guest is 11-time CMA winner Tim McGraw, who returns to Foxborough for the first time since teaming up with four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, Kenny Chesney, for the 2012 ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour, which blew away more than 1.1 million fans across the country. To make the May 31, 2014 Gillette Stadium show even more spectacular, five-time Grammy Award winner Faith Hill will also take the stage.
Tickets for the Saturday, May 31, 2014 show at Gillette Stadium go on sale Saturday, November 23, 2013 through Ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Strait, who received his third CMA Entertainer of the Year Award during the live television special broadcast nationally last week from Nashville, recently renewed his record deal with MCA Records and will continue to record new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour. “Quicken Loans Presents George Strait's The Cowboy Rides Away Tour 2014” will offer fans a final opportunity to see Strait’s live show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career, including many of his 60 No. 1 hits (more than any other artist in any genre). Additionally, Strait will receive Billboard’s Legend of Live Award later this week in a ceremony in New York City. This is the magazine’s most coveted touring award, and he is the first country music artist to achieve this honor.
