George Strait is the country legend, and it shows through ticket sales. Fans are jumping on board for a final chance to see him live on his Cowboy Rides Away Tour, which is, unsurprisingly, selling out quickly. 

Most tickets for the second round of dates announced have already been spoken for, and if it gives you any indication of how quickly they're selling out, Strait's upcoming show at the Staples Center sold out in just nine minutes.

Shows in Atlanta, Columbus, Denver, Omaha, Phoenix and San Diego all sold out immediately. And of these 2014 Cowboy Rides Away Tour dates, only tickets for the Feb. 14 show in Auburn Hills, Mich. are still available -- so any fans hoping to hear him on his last tour before retiring from the road better act quickly.

Strait has said that he never expected his fans would react in this way, that it's just incredible. More tickets for upcoming shows (see below) will go on sale on Oct. 11 at 10AM in each venue’s respective time zone.

Although Strait is hanging up his touring hat, he'll still be making music in the foreseeable future. In fact, fans can look forward to at least five more albums from the 'I Cross My Heart' hitmaker, as he signed a new contract with MCA Nashville in August.
