Luke Combs sells out 19 of 25 tour dates in record time

Within hours, in some cases minutes, of tickets going on-sale, Luke Combs’ 25-city headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tour sold-out in 19 markets. Sell-outs included the iconic Texas Club in Baton Rouge, the fastest sell-out in the venue’s 36-year history which includes legends like George Strait and Garth Brooks, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, Buck Owen’s Crystal Palace in Bakersfield and Combs’ very first arena show, US Cellular Center in Asheville, N.C. To accommodate the overwhelming fan demand, Combs quickly added second nights in Atlanta, Charlotte and Baton Rouge, expanded several sold-out shows to larger venues and will continue to release additional ticket inventory when possible.

Fan excitement this week also drove Combs’ debut album This One’s For You back to the No. 1 spot on Billboard Country Albums Chart – where it debuted in June upon release – and his brand new music video for “When It Rains It Pours” to cross 2.9 million views within a week of being out.4

Firestone has enlisted Combs for their 2017 summer country music campaign focused on bringing to life the long-lasting tie between country music and the outdoors in an innovative digital content series. Luke Combs: Behind The Song takes fan on an inside look at the North Carolina native’s life on and off the road in a three part series.

Achieving the largest debut release in 2017 with his critically-acclaimed album This One’s For You, singer/songwriter Luke Combs stormed into country music in 2017 firmly as “one of country’s leading new contenders” (NPR). This week, Combs rapidly-rising new single “When It Rains It Pours” crossed to No. 19 at country radio this week, notching more than 17 million streams, and follows the standout success of his debut single “Hurricane” which made country radio history holding the No. 1 spot for two-consecutive weeks. In 2017, Combs received nominations for CMT “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” and MusicRow “Breakthrough Artist-Writer” and earned notable press accolades from American Songwriter, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, HITS, NPR, Rolling Stone and USA Today and more.
