Highlights Of George Strait’s Final Northeast Show
George Strait played his final concert in the Northeast on Saturday, May 31.
Gillette Stadium, in Foxborough, Mass., was packed with Country Music fans who came to see their final glimpse of George Strait on The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
Tim McGraw appeared to be in his glory opening for his hero with hit after hit. As anticipated, when McGraw started his new song, ‘Meanwhile Back At Mama’s,’ the crowd was treated to an appearance by Faith Hill. Surprisingly, the husband and wife mega stars did not sing their most famous duet ‘It’s Your Love!’ Although we were treated to a couple of hit duets and a few Faith Hill solo hits.
“King” George delighted the crowd with two and a half hours of pure Country Music. It’s well known that Strait has 60 Number One Hits, so it was a bit of a shocker when he selected quite a few obscure album cuts instead of packing his set list with chart toppers. However, with so many songs, it had to be quite a decision of what to include. Overall, he did something that represented most all of his many decades of radio hits, including his new single ‘I Got A Car.’
As I watched the final show, I tried to tune out the people who were just there to drink and have loud conversations, to enjoy the twin fiddles and steel guitar- something I knew I would rarely ever hear in a stadium, or arena, ever again!
