One of the main reasons we decided to be in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area for a week was to see George Strait on Saturday, December 7. Other than the concert, we had no plans to go to the Las Vegas Strip, so it was nice to see Christmas oriented light displays near the concert venue (T-Mobile Arena).
The concert itself was amazing. The opener was Ashley McBryde, who did an amazing job. I only brought my iPhone Xs Max and we were up in the cheap seats, so the photos are a bit grainy and pixelated. 🙂
By the time George Strait came on stage, this stadium was all but sold out. Considering it was National Finals Rodeo time, and there were many other artists playing the same night (including Jason Aldean) – wow!
I liked the stage format – “in the diamond” as I call it. George sang two songs at each microphone, then moved to the next microphone to his left. By far my most favorite song by George is Amarillo by Morning. I posted a video below, but I do not own the rights to this song and have not made it shareable.
