LUKE COMBS’ “WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET TOUR”: 16 OUT OF 24 SHOWS SOLD OUT IN FIRST WEEKEND

FEATURED ON NBC’S “SUNDAY TODAY WITH WILLIE GEIST

NOMINATED FOR THREE ACM AWARDS



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. See below for complete details.


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. Watch the full profile HERE. 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 #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 5 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.


What You See Is What You Get—out now on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here)—recently debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this past November with 172,000 equivalent units sold. It also enjoyed 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 ever for a country artist on Apple Music and was the first country album ever to hit #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 breaking the Amazon Music record for more first-week streams than any other country album debut. Moreover, Combs made his debut as the musical guest on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” last month with host JJ Watt performing two songs from, What You See Is What You Get: “Lovin’ On You” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart.


Produced by Scott Moffatt, What You See Is What You Get features 17 songs including the five tracks previously released via The Prequel EP last summer. The EP debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with all five tracks charting on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Top 25—a feat not accomplished by any artist in 60 years since Johnny Cash in 1959. Additionally, Combs’ last single, “Even Though I’m Leaving,” spent three weeks at #1 at country radio, making it Combs’ seventh consecutive #1—a first on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. Following this success, Combs’ current single, “Does To Me” featuring Eric Church, is already Top 15 at country radio.


In celebration of the album, Combs is set to headline his first ever stadium show at Appalachian State University’s Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, NC on May 2. The sold-out show continues Combs’ historic success on the road with the first leg of the “What You See Is What You Get Tour” selling out immediately after going on-sale last fall, including two record-breaking feats:


Lexington, KY’s Rupp Arena sold-out in 12 minutes—breaking the record for the fastest sell-out in the venue’s 43-year history (previously set by Paul McCartney)University Park, PA’s Bryce Jordan Center broke the venue’s record for fastest single-show sell-out (previously held by Luke Bryan)

  • Adding to his landmark year, Combs’ debut album, This One’s For You, was recently certified RIAA Triple Platinum. Since its release in 2017, the album has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997. This One’s For You was also the most-streamed country album of 2019. Moreover, several of Combs’ songs have also received new RIAA certifications: 4x Platinum “Beautiful Crazy,” 4x Platinum “When It Rains It Pours,” 2x Platinum “She Got The Best of Me” and Platinum “Must’ve Never Met You.”

  • Additional notable achievements and recognitions:

  • Awarded Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year (“Beautiful Crazy”) at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards Recently inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry Awarded CMT Performance of the Year at the 2019 CMT Music Awards for his CMT Crossroads performance of “Beautiful Crazy” with Leon Bridges Awarded Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist and Top Country Album at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards Awarded New Male Artist of the Year at the 2019 ACM Awards Awarded Country Artist of the Year at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards Awarded New Artist of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards Nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards Recipient of a CMA Triple Play Award for writing three #1 songs in a 12-month period First artist to simultaneously top all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales (dated March 9, March 30 and April 6)
