Last night, George Strait postponed his Kansas City tour stop due to illness. The real kicker, he didn’t do it until he was three songs in. Just like any other gig on George Strait’s tour, Martina McBride opened the show with an hour set of all her biggest hits. Then, shortly before 9pm, George took the stage and performed “Here for a Good Time” and “I Gotta Get to You.”
After the second song, George apologized the the sold-out crowd of 18,000 fans, “I just can’t do it.” His voice was hoarse and obviously that of an ill man.
George instructed everyone to hang on to their tickets and come back on March 3rd.
I give the man credit for trying, but as a fan who sometimes travels far and wide for concerts, I would’ve preferred the show gotten cancelled ahead of time.
Feel Better George!
