Fresh off of winning his first CMA Entertainer of the Year award, country star Luke Combs is passing by yet another important career milestone. The hit maker is officially making the jump to “stadium tour headliner” status, announcing a series of huge shows next year.
Set to hit three NFL stadiums in the midst of a nationwide arena tour, Combs will visit Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High on May 21, Seattle’s Lumen Field on June 4 and Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 30. He’ll be joined for each show by Cody Johnson, Zach Bryan and Morgan Wade.
Tickets for those massive shows go on sale starting tomorrow (November 17), and become available in waves. Combs’ official fan club, The Bootleggers, have early access through Ticketmaster Verified Fan starting November 17 at 10am local time. Then comes the official pre-sale at 4pm the same day, and American Express Card Members can pick up their tickets starting Thursday, November 18 at 10am. The general on-sale begins Friday, November 19, at 10am local.
These will not be Combs’ first stadium shows ever, but planning a series of them is still a big step for the star. Combs headlined the football stadium at his alma mater Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, back in September (after it was postponed for more than a year due to COVID-19), and parts of that concert were used in his new music video for the just-dropped single, “Doin’ This.” Combs debuted the song live on the 55th Annual CMA Awards last week, and noted that all together, it’s made for a pretty memorable stretch of events.
“This week has been a whirlwind — got to debut a new song on the CMAs, release the song and music video to my fans, and announce three stadium shows at NFL stadiums. Talk about a week! It will be hard to top this one.”
Meanwhile, the hits keep on coming, with Combs current single, “Cold As You,” inside country radio’s Top 5 and rising.
