George Strait to Open MGM Arena

George Strait will be the first person to perform at the new MGM-AEG Arena.

His first show will be on April 22, 2016 - which is presumably the first night the Arena will be open for business.

Six 2016 dates have been announced for the country legend at the new arena: April 22-23, September 9-10 and December 2-3. It's expected that more dates could be announced later.

George Strait has 60 number 1 country hits, and has sold almost 70 million records. No stranger to large crowds, Strait also headlined the first event in the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in 2009.

His catalog of hits, along with the setting of a brand new arena will likely make this a hot ticket. I would definitely consider seeing this show if the timing worked out.
