George to Open New Dallas Stadium

George Strait will headline the opening event of the new Dallas Cowboys football stadium with an all-star concert on Saturday, June 6.

George will be joined by Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton and two-time Dancing With the Stars champion Julianne Hough, who will also be opening for George on his 2009 tour. "I grew up in South Texas and have always been a Dallas Cowboys fan," says George. "I have a lot of great memories from playing the many shows we did at Texas Stadium, as well as watching America's team win their share of Super Bowls. I am very excited about having the opportunity to do the first concert ever in the magnificent new Cowboys stadium and share this momentous occasion with all the incredible country music fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth area." Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m., Feb. 28, at all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at (800) 745-3000 and at ticketmaster.com.
