The stage was set up in the middle of the brand new T-Mobile Arena. As the night came to an end, the crowd grew louder and louder until Strait and his band returned to the stage for a 4 set encore which included "All my Ex's Live in Texas," "I Saw God Today," "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash, and the finale was "The Cowboy Rides Away."

Kacey Musgraves opened the show with an hour long set. She wore her white sequin country get up. Musgraves informed the audience on how honored she was to open for Strait on his Strait To Vegas Kickoff Concert.

She stated, " Thank you so much for showing up early, It means a lot to this girl from Texas who is a massive George Strait fan."
