George Strait's Chevy Trucks Country Music Tour has downgraded three more shows from stadiums and speedways to sheds. As previously reported here (March 8), the March 25 show at Pro Player Stadium in Miami was moved to Mars Music Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.
The new changes are as follows: the May 13 concert in St. Louis was moved to Riverport Amphitheatre from the TWA Dome; the May 20 Minneapolis date at the Metrodome has been replaced by a stop in Pittsburgh, Pa. at the Post-Gazette Pavilion at Star Lake; and the May 26 Joliet, Ill. show at Route 66 Speedway will now be at the New World Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Ill.
Now in its fourth year, the tour was booked into 16 markets, 15 of them new this year. In addtion to Strait, this year's lineup features Alan Jackson, Lonestar, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Asleep at the Wheel, and Sara Evans. The tour kicks off March 24 in Tampa at the James Raymond Stadium.
