New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Due to the overwhelming demand for his record-breaking World Tour, country superstar and reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs
has added second nights to his sold-out stadium shows at Tampa's Raymond James
Stadium (Friday, July 7), Charlotte's Bank of America
Stadium (Friday, July 14), Foxborough's Gillette Stadium (Friday, July 21) and Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field (Friday, July 28). Special guests for the new dates include Lainey Wilson, Turnpike Troubadours, The Avett Brothers, Gary Allan, Old Crow Medicine Show, David
Lee Murphy and Brent Cobb.
The newly confirmed dates add to the massive success of Combs' World Tour, which has sold over 570,500 tickets across just 11 stadium shows so far, with the majority of the tour still to come. With 44 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the tour is the largest ever for a country artist, earning Combs the #1 spot on Pollstar's LIVE75 chart, where he has more than doubled all other charting artists.
Of the added shows, Combs shares, "After we got to play two shows in Nashville, I decided I wanted to play more shows for the fans, so I got with my team and the stadiums and luckily all of the July dates lined up for us, so we decide to just do it! I'm really excited to be able to bring more music to more fans."
Tickets for the new dates will be available for pre-sale starting this Thursday, June 8 at 12:00pm local time through Ticketmaster Verified Fan, with general on-sale following Friday, June 9 at 10:00am local time. Combs' official fan club, The Bootleggers, will once again have early access to tickets through Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale starting Thursday, June 8 at 10:00am local time.
The tour adds to yet another monumental year for Combs, who released his new album, Gettin' Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin' Up—earlier this spring via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here).
Receiving critical acclaim, Combs recently spoke with Esquire, who calls him "the best country singer of his generation." Additionally, The New York Times proclaims, "…grounded in country, complete with fiddle fills, but it's also pointed toward a wide pop audience" and Billboard declares, "his electrifying-yet-earthy voice soundtracking this time in his life as a husband, father and entertainer at the top of his game."
Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin' Old is Combs' fourth full-length album following Growin' Up, 2019's 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One's For You.
With the new album, Combs also continues his success at radio. His new version of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," which has garnered over 111 million global streams to date, is currently #10 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, #21 on the AC chart, #19 on the Hot AC chart and #33 on the Top 40 chart, continuing to rise on all. This is Combs' first single outside the country genre.
Additionally, Combs recently made history earning the #1 and #2 most-added songs at country radio ("Love You Anyway
" and "5 Leaf Clover
" respectively), setting a modern-era record on the MediaBase, Country Aircheck and R&R charts. "Love You Anyway
"—which is currently #15 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart and rising—follows "Going, Going, Gone," Combs' 15th consecutive #1 single—the longest consecutive #1 streak for an artist since their debut.
Moreover, Combs recently debuted his new collaboration with Ed Sheeran, "Life Goes On (featuring Luke Combs), during the 2023 ACM Awards, of which Billboard praises, "The unlikely duo's voices blended seamlessly…with Combs' raspy tone complementing Sheeran's famously smooth vocal range." A Grand Ole Opry-member and 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music
Award-winner, Combs has also partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level entertainment complex in downtown Nashville, expected to open summer 2024.
