— George Strait will play Verizon Arena next year during a stop on what the country music star says will be his final full-fledged tour.

Strait on Thursday announced the first 20 stops on his two-year "The Cowboy Rides Away" tour, including an April 12 show at the North Little Rock venue.

Martina McBride will also perform. Tickets, which will cost $86 or $108.50, go on sale Dec. 14.

Organizers said in a release that Strait will continue to play "select dates" after this last tour, but that this will be "a final opportunity to take in Strait's live tour show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career."

Strait, 60, has had 59 No. 1 songs and has sold more than 65 million records.
