This my friends, is why they call him the king. George Strait shattered the old indoor concert, attendance record at his final concert. The total number in attendance was 104,793, breaking the Rolling Stones 1981 record. How many were at that Stones concert in 1981?
According to the record books, the Louisiana Superdome only held 87,500 in 1981. Thirty-three years later the King of Country raised the benchmark by 17,293 attendees.
