Luke Combs Shows Sold Out


June 4, 2021—ACM, CMA and CMT Award-winning artist Luke Combs’ three night stand at Orange Beach, AL’s The Wharf July 2-4 sold out within minutes this morning—the fastest and biggest on-sale in the venue’s history, making Combs the only artist to sell out the premier Amphitheater for three nights.
Of the achievement, Combs shares, “Man, I’ve got to admit that I didn’t know what to expect. It has been 15 months since we’ve put any shows on sale, or really played any shows for that matter. I’ve missed being on the road and playing for the fans more than anything, so this is super humbling to see they can’t wait to get back out to a show either. I was already very pumped for these shows, but I’m even more pumped now. I can’t wait.”
President of U.S. concerts for Live Nation, Bob Roux adds, “The sheer demand for tickets to Luke Combs’ three concerts at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama was simply incredible. Luke sold out all three of his shows, as fast as the system would allow for, and we unquestionably had the demand for additional shows.”
The summer shows come ahead of Combs’ massive fall headline arena tour, featuring a special new in-the-round stage design. Kicking off in September at Raleigh’s PNC Arena (two nights), the tour includes stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden (two nights), San Francisco’s Chase Center, Houston’s Toyota Center, Chicago’s United Center (two nights), Dallas’ American Airlines Center (two nights) and Boston’s TD Garden (two nights) among several others. Combs will also perform his first ever headline stadium show at Boone, NC’s Kidd Brewer Stadium on September 4. See below for complete itinerary. 
This latest historic feat comes the same week his Platinum-certified single, “Forever After All,” reaches #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. This is Combs’ eleventh-consecutive #1 single, a first on the chart, as well as his sixth-consecutive #1 from his new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get—tying the record for most #1 singles to come from the same album. The song, which also tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts this week, debuted at #2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart this past November—the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist. 
Out now on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart last fall. The special deluxe edition features all 18 tracks from Combs’ double Platinum-certified, global #1 album, What You See Is What You Get, as well as five new songs. With the release, Combs reached #1 on Rolling Stone’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart—the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500. 
Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as What You See Is What You Get topped the chart for the 25th time last summer, while his 2017 debut, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at #1—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.
