World Record Concert Attendance

The Rolling Stones’ record of the biggest concert attendance was broken last night in Dallas. Country music star George Strait’s final concert of his farewell tour drew 105,000 people to the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. The Stones held the record of 100,000 people at the Louisiana Superdome since 1981. The final show of his The Cowboy Rides Away tour was filled with guests stars doing duets with Strait.

The show brought an end to Strait's nearly 40 years on the road, starting in 1975 with the Ace in the Hole Band. Many of the 11-piece band's original members played back up Saturday, "the best band anybody could have out here on the road," Strait said.

Although Strait is retiring from touring, he still has a few albums to record. And now, a world record. -via Uproxx
