Strait Will Play Rescheduled Concert Friday

George Strait will appear this Friday (March 8) at The Pyramid in Memphis to make up the date he had to postpone last Friday (March 1) because of a throat infection. Tickets for March 1 will be honored at the rescheduled show. Strait did recover sufficiently to appear Sunday (March 3) at the Astrodome in Houston. He played to a record crowd of 68,266 on the venue’s last day as host to the annual RodeoHouston. The Houston Chronicle, in a review of the show, recalled that Strait’s first appearance at RodeoHouston came as a last-minute stand-in for Eddie Rabbitt. 03/05/02
