Frank Erwin Center Celebrating 40 With George Strait



“We are thrilled to bring George Strait to Austin to help our friends at the Frank Erwin Center celebrate 40 years,”

Frank Erwin Center has had a big year, with just in the last month hosting the “Harvey Can’t Mess With Texas” benefit (featuring Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, James Taylor and others), Janet Jackson, Arcade Fire and the Pitbull / Enrique Iglesias tour. It also hosted one of Tom Petty’s final concerts, in May, which sold 11,592 tickets according to Pollstar box office reports.

Pollstar data also show sellouts or near sellouts for shows including J. Cole, New Kids On The Block and Stevie Nicks this year.

“What better way to celebrate 40 years than with a legend like George Strait,” said director of the Frank Erwin Center, Jimmy Earl. “George has performed at the Erwin Center more times than any other artist and we are honored to have him help us commemorate this huge achievement.”
