LOS ANGELES (AP) — George Strait’s farewell show at AT&T Stadium outside Dallas has set a record.

Billboard reports 104,793 fans attended the June 7 show. That’s the largest attendance for a single-show concert in the U.S. since Billboard started tracking touring data in 1991.

U2 previously held the record, with 97,014 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Oct. 25, 2009.
