George Strait‘s Cowboy Rides Away Tour was bound to be a hot ticket, since the country legend announced that he will be retiring from active touring after this trek.

It’s the fans last chance to see Strait perform live with a full production, since he is closing the book on touring, but not retiring overall. It was a foregone conclusion that tickets would be gobbled up quickly. But they really went faster than expected, as six of the tour markets sold out within hours of going on sale.

Even more impressive was the Lubbock, Texas show, which took only 15 minutes for all 15,431 tickets to be sold. Other sell outs include Oklahoma City, St. Paul, Albuquerque, Las Vegas and Las Cruces.

Strait was moved by the show of support from his loyal legion of fans, saying, “I never expected the fans would react like this. It’s just incredible.”

He continued, “I really do have the best fans in the world, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all on the road very soon.”

Go here for a complete list of dates for the Cowboy Rides Away Tour, which will feature special guest Martina McBride.
