George Strait begins his final tour in January and no surprise, tickets are going fast.  His show at the Staples Center sold out in nine minutes. Shows in Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego and Denver also sold out immediately.   If you want to see George in Chicago, you’ll want to be ready to go Friday morning at 10:00 that’s when tickets go on sale for the March 8th show.  We still have tickets to give away with Holstein and Company and during WIXY’s Country Cafe at noon.
