Holy shit that’s a lot of coin.

According to the numbers from Billboard Boxscore, Strait sold $12.7 million in tickets for his March 17th RodeoHouston performance at NRG Stadium, and earned an additional $12 million for his March 30th gig at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. That’s $24.7 million dollars for two gigs.

In fact, that’s the most ever since the stadium opened in 2002. His $12.7 million gross passes 2018 concerts at NRG Stadium by Beyoncé and Jay-Z ($11.1 million) and Taylor Swift ($9.5 million).

They don’t call him the King for nothing.
