Country Thunder launches additional tickets for Morgan Wallen’s show in Arizona | Music

A year after being caught on camera making a racial slur, country singer Morgan Wallen’s career has gone from dismal to dazzling.

The singer has become country music’s hottest ticket, selling out a trio of shows last week at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena – capacity 20,000 – and two shows at Madison Square Garden – capacity 20,789 – in February.

Earlier this month, he won the Academy of Country Music’s coveted Album of the Year award for his double-platinum (over 2 million copies) selling 2021 album “Dangerous: The Double Album”.

Her only show in Arizona is headlining Country Thunder in Florence on April 9. Tickets for this show are nearly sold out, but Country Thunder will release an additional 1,000 tickets for $175 each at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 23, via countrythunder.com/az.

Country Thunder officials said they expect additional tickets to go quickly.

Wallen was supposed to headline the rescheduled 2020 Country Thunder festival last October, which was canceled due to the pandemic. But after he was captured on video in February 2021 making a racial slur, his record label suspended him and he suspended touring throughout the last year, performing just six shows all year.

He resumed full-time touring in February.

Country Thunder will take place April 7-10 at the festival grounds in Florence, 20585 E. Water Way. In addition to Wallen, headliners are Riley Green on April 7, Blake Shelton on April 8, and Florida Georgia Line on April 10.
