LUKE BREAKS A RECORD


Luke Combs
broke the two-day and single-day concert-attendance records at Nissan Stadium over the weekend as 95,000 fans packed the Nashville football stadium. The 4/14 show was announced only a week prior to the event.

“This further confirms what we have always known: Luke is a monumental talent whose voice and music continue to find a larger and larger audience,” said Gary Gersh, president of Global Touring and Talent at AEG.

The Nashville performances were the third stop on Combs' 40-show tour, which will hit 16 countries, the biggest such outing ever for a country artist.

Up next is a sold-out show at Detroit’s Ford Field, followed by sold-out performances at Chicago’s Soldier Field, Charlotte, North Carolina's Bank of America Stadium and Foxborough, Massachusetts' Gillette Stadium.

“Music City, man. When I moved here, I just wanted an opportunity to be around music in any capacity, so I never could have dreamed of a weekend like this, especially with last-minute notice of the Friday show to the fans, but they showed up, just like they always do," said the River House/Columbia Nashville star. "Nashville, thank you. I’m glad to call this home.”

Combs' tour coincides with the growing popularity of his version of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which is not an ode to the vehicles used by failed Tennessee Titans quarterbacks on their way out of town.
