George Strait with special guest Willie Nelson to headline new Austin venue grand opening


George Strait is set to headline Austin’s newest venue, the Moody Center, next April as part of their grand opening ceremony, and Strait will be joined by Willie Nelson & Family, as well as Randy Rogers Band. The manager of Moody Center says, “While planning our grand opening celebration, we knew we had an obligation to the Lone Star State. George Strait, Willie Nelson and Randy are all Texas natives who have built legendary careers while having an unbelievable impact on the country music industry. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

Willie Nelson & Family is currently on the road with ‘Outlaw Music Festival.’ Said Strait: “I’m so glad I’ll get to ‘sing one with Willie’ and I can’t think of a better place to do it than Austin Texas. Willie is an incredible musician so I know this will be a great night together along with our friends from Randy Rogers Band.”

Moody Center opens April of 2022 at the University of Texas. Exclusive VIP Packages and tickets for the ‘Strait from Moody Center’ Grand Opening Celebration Presented by Bud Light go on sale Friday, Oct. 22 at 10 a.m. CT.
