Combs will drop the entire show on Feb 18th
Luke Combs may have a remedy for fans itching to see him live again. He’s planning to drop a fully produced entire show from his record breaking What You See Is What You Get Tour next week. The country superstar teased the news Thursday (Feb 11th) on social media.
“Sure I’m not the only one, but man, I miss live music. So I got to thinking – my team recorded the shows on my last tour. What would y’all think about me posting a full show to watch? All the camera angles and everything. Thought it may be pretty cool. Maybe the night of Feb. 18?” he says.

The show is from Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY and is the second to last show before the COVID shutdown.
Due to the pandemic, Combs was forced to reschedule his What You See Is What You Get 2020 tour to 2021. As of this writing, the rescheduled dates will resume in June, but could be rescheduled again due to COVID restrictions. When it resumes, the trek will feature Ashley McBryde, Drew Parker and Ray Fulcher performing with a new in-the-round stage design.
Combs initially sold out 16 of the 24 shows of the What You See Is What You Get Tour when tickets went on-sale early last year, including both of his Madison Square Garden headline debut performances.
Earlier this month, Combs released “The Great Divide” with Billy Strings. The timely single was planned for inclusion on a forthcoming bluegrass album that has been halted while he focuses on his third country effort.
The track follows Combs’ 10th consecutive No. 1 hit with “Better Together.” This extends his record-breaking streak at country radio as the first artist to have all ten of his singles reach the summit with only two studio albums and deluxe albums.
Last year, Combs also made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart — breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks.
