HIDALGO, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — The "King of Country" is coming to the Valley, and fans are already camping out to get their tickets to see George Strait in June.
Tickets for the George Strait concert go on sale tomorrow morning, but some eager fans have been camping outside the State Farm Arena since Wednesday morning to get their tickets.
The stop in the Valley is part of the "Cowboy Rides Away" tour before Strait retires.
Fans who are spending two nights outside say they have no regrets.
"It's totally worth it to get to see George Strait before he retires, it's awesome," said Luis Benavidea. "I'm living the dream."
Since the 80s I've been a fan of his, and I'm just excited that I'm gonna have this forever for his last tour that I camped out," said Sylvia Gonzalez. "I'm a grandma and my grandkids can't believe it!"
Tickets start at $89 and are available at the State Farm Arena.
