UPDATE: The Rick Ross concert was officially announced today. Tickets are on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. with tickets costing $39.75, $49.75 & $69.75.

ORIGINAL POST, 9/27: Country legend George Strait and hot-rapper-of-the-moment Rick Ross are Fresno-bound, according to new tour announcements from each artist.

Strait announced 2013 tour plans at a Wednesday news conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Strait said the tour, titled “A Cowboy Rides Away,” would be his last. Strait will perform Feb. 1 at Save Mart Center. The tour includes Martina McBride. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 12. They’ll cost $72.50 and $92.50.

Meanwhile, rapper Rick Ross announced his Maybach Music Group tour would stop at Save Mart Center, too. Tour dates tweeted by the rapper include a Nov. 29 show in Fresno. That tour includes Ross labelmates Meek Mill, Wale and Machine Gun Kelly. Save Mart Center has not confirmed the Ross date, nor have ticket details been announced. Watch for those in future updates.

Also: Superstar DJ Tiësto has postponed his October concerts because of a back injury. His Fresno show, originally Oct. 17, has been rescheduled for March 6. Tickets from Oct. 17 will be honored at new date. But refunds are also available.
