If you're a George Strait fan club member, your years of loyal devotion are about to pay off. Strait fan club members have the opportunity to purchase tickets beginning Tuesday, October 9th at 10 a.m. (in the venue’s respective time zone) by visiting the George Strait website. The ticket prices will vary from venue to venue and seating location.

If you're thinking of getting enough tickets for all your non-fan-club-member (FCM) family and friends think again. First off, there's a limit as to how many any one FCM can purchase.  Second, ticket prices begin at $69.50 for general admission and the general public ticketing opens on Friday October 12th (again the same time zone restrictions will apply).

Limited VIP packages will also be available for purchase. For $399, the “Ace in the Hole” package includes a top tier ticket in the first 10 rows, an invitation to an exclusive pre-show party, a tour of a private exhibit of Strait memorabilia, a special VIP gift. For $999, “The Troubadour” package secures a front row seat and, in addition to the pre-show events and access listed above, includes a guitar signed by Strait.

The Strait folks are also auctioning off two pairs of front row seats, as well as meet and greet passes, to each tour stop. Proceeds from the auctions will benefit The Jenifer Strait Foundation, a foundation that gives to various children’s charities like the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio and the St. Jude Ranch. Bidding will begin on the first lot Friday, October 12th, 2012 at 10 a.m. EDT. Let me know if you win one of the lots and good luck.
