Country superstar Luke Combs has broken two attendance records at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium—the same week as Coachella 2023.
Over 95,000 people attended the two-day event, breaking both the single-day and two-day concert records. The second show came as a complete surprise to fans and was only announced a week prior.
“Music City, man when I loved 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 a last-minute notice of the Friday show to the fans but they showed up, just like they always do. Nashville, thank you. I’m glad to call this home,” Combs said about the record-breaking concert performance.
“Nissan Stadium is ‘Nashville’s Biggest Stage,’ and we are thrilled to kick off our summer concert season with record-breaking attendance,” adds Ashlee Stokely, Tennessee Titans Vice President of Stadium Events & Experience. “The energy and excitement in the stadium was electric as Luke delivered an unforgettable show in Music City.”
The tour features 40 shows across three continents and 16 countries, for the largest tour ever for a country artist. It supports Combs’ new album Gettin’ Old, which is a companion album to 2022’s Growin’ Up. Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following Growin’ Up.
Moreover, Combs recently earned 26 new Platinum and Gold RIAA certifications and has partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level entertainment complex in downtown Nashville, which is expected to open summer 2024. Combs will be touring through October 2024 with several sold-out dates across the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France, and Belgium.
Combs also recently extended his record-breaking run at country radio with his single, “Going, Going, Gone,” which spent two weeks at #1 and is the artist’s 15th consecutive #1 single.
