The late January/early February weekend dates make for live shows on back to back weekends for Strait, something he's done rarely if ever since retiring from the road in 2014. He is scheduled to play in Witchita, Kan., and two shows in Kansas City on Jan. 24-26. Two November shows in Fort Worth, Texas, and this Saturday's show at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the other dates on his calendar.
Musically Strait has kept busy, as he promised he would when he announced his retirement. In March he released his Honky Tonk Time Machine album to critical acclaim. On Sept. 13 he plans to reissue Strait Out of the Box: Part 1.
Update: Strait added Aug. 28-29 dates in Las Vegas and a stadium show in Minneapolis, Minn. for Aug. 22. He'll also play Notre Dame's football stadium on Aug. 15.
