Morgan Wallen’s Live Shows Are Outselling Everybody But The Rolling Stones Right Now

That’s one hell of a comeback.

I’ve said before that Morgan Wallen is one of the hottest tickets in town right now.

After tickets went on sale for his upcoming 2022 arena tour, The Dangerous Tour, many of the shows sold out during the presale before tickets even went on sale to the general public.

In fact, Morgan added a second show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and Madison Square Garden in New York City after demand was through the roof and the shows sold out pretty much immediately. (He eventually also added a THIRD show to his stop in Nashville).

Well now we have some data that shows just how strong his ticket sales are. And they’re better than everybody but The Rolling Stones.

According to Pollstar’s Live75 chart, which ranks worldwide active tours by average tickets sold for shows played over the last 60 days, Morgan comes in second on the list behind the legendary rock band, with an average of 27,645 tickets sold per show.

The Stones, meanwhile, are on a stadium tour (so not really a fair comparison) and are averaging 43,000 tickets sold per show.

Table

While Morgan’s the top-selling country act on the list, there are two other heavy hitters in the genre right behind him on the chart.

Eric Church‘s Gather Again Tour comes in third with an average of 15,633 tickets sold, while CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs is in fourth with 14,431.

All four of the top-selling tours are averaging 100% capacity sold at their shows.

Now, the list may not be entirely fair since Church and Combs are both on arena tours and Morgan has been playing outdoor shows with larger capacities. But the fact that he’s selling out those larger venues is a pretty good indicator that his shows are more in-demand now than ever.

Oh, and speaking of arena shows, Morgan also recently sold 36,000 tickets in 90 minutes for his upcoming 3-night run at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.

However you look at it, Morgan Wallen is poised to be one of the hottest tickets in country music next year, and based on the numbers, it looks like he’s already there.
