ARLINGTON, Texas – The Cowboys have the NFL's single-game attendance record for a regular-season game at AT&T Stadium.

The highest-attended basketball game has also occurred right there in Arlington and now AT&T Stadium has another record as well.

George Strait played his final concert June 7, 2014 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Last Saturday's George Strait concert became the largest indoor concert in North America as 104,793 people packed AT&T Stadium. It broke a 33-year record previously set by The Rolling Stones in New Orleans in 1981, when an estimated crowd of 87,500 people crammed into the Superdome.

Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" Tour concluded Saturday night with star-studded tribute, featuring Kenny Chesney, Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Jason Aldean.

AT&T Stadium recently broke the attendance record for the NCAA Final Four national championship game when 79,238 showed up for the Kentucky-UConn game in early April.

On Feb. 14, 2010, the NBA All-Star game drew in 108,713. The Cowboys' first home game in the stadium still stands as the largest regular-season crowd with 105,121.

In 2010, the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight was the highest-attended boxing match with 50,994 on hand.
