What You See Is What You Get Tour sells 16 out of 24 in first weekend
Continuing his monumental success on the road, Luke Combs sold out 16 of the 24 shows on his newly confirmed What You See Is What You Get Tour since tickets went on-sale this past Friday, including both of his Madison Square Garden headline debut performances. Additional sold out dates include Raleigh’s PNC Arena (two nights), New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center, Dallas’ American Airlines Center, Memphis’ FedEx Forum, Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, Chicago’s United Center, Orlando’s Amway Center and Boston’s TD Garden among others. The new tour — which will feature special guests Ashley McBryde, Drew Parker and Ray Fulcher — will see Combs performing with a new in-the-round stage design.
This achievement adds to a series of groundbreaking and historic years for the ACM, CMA and CMT Award-winning artist, who was featured on NBC’s Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist this past weekend. Additionally, Combs is nominated in three categories at the 55th ACM Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for his acclaimed global No. 1 record, What You See Is What You Get. The awards ceremony will be broadcast on CBS live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 5th at 8 pm ET/PT.
Combs will co-headline two stadium dates with Tim McGraw in Philadelphia and Los Angeles in September. Special guest Midland and Ingrid Andress will join the shows.
What You See Is What You Get made its debut at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with 172,000 equivalent units sold. It was the global No. 1 album, topping charts in Canada, Australia and the U.K., also enjoying the largest streaming week ever for a country album with 74 million on-demand streams. It also achieved the biggest first week of album streams for a country artist ever on Apple Music within its first two days of release and was the first country album ever to hit No. 1 on the platform’s U.S. overall albums chart, while also setting a new global record for first-week streams for a country album at Spotify and the Amazon Music record for more first-week streams than any other country album debut.
