Strait Plans 2004 Tour

George Strait returns to the road in early 2004 for a 21-city tour across 16 states. Dierks Bentley (“What Was I Thinkin'”) and Kellie Coffey (“When You Lie Next to Me”) will be the opening acts on the tour launching in the middle of January. Only one concert date has been officially announced — a Jan. 31 stop at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Tickets for that show go on sale Oct. 4. Set to run through March, the tour will find Strait performing in the round at large arenas. 09/26/03
