Gary Allan’s April 17 show at the historic Ryman Auditorium went on sale Friday morning and within 10 minutes, the show was sold out. The demand for tickets from fans prompted Gary to add a second Ryman performance on April 19, which is now also sold out.
“Playing at the Ryman is always special, that venue is magic,” Gary said. “Selling it out quickly, it’s just incredible. These shows at the Ryman are going to be as much fun for me as they are for the fans. I’m fired up.”
Gary’s label mate, Kip Moore, is also on a streak of sold out shows. His March 23 stop in Boston sold out in just 20 minutes, with fans snatching up almost 2,500 tickets. Kip has also sold out headlining dates in Norfolk, VA, Raleigh, NC, Athens, GA, Nashville, TN, Starkville, MS and Grand Rapids, MI so far in 2013.
“This year is off to a crazy start and it’s only February,” Kip said. ”We have been at this awhile, just going out on the road and playing to as many people who would listen. It wasn’t much at first, but thankfully, the number of people listening seems to be getting bigger and bigger. And if you missed out on any tickets, I’m sorry…but I guarantee we’ll be back soon!”
In addition to headlining his own dates, Kip is also a special guest on Brantley Gilbert’s Hell On Wheels Tour. He just released his new single, “Hey Pretty Girl,” to radio. Gary Allan’s new album, Set You Free, hit stores January 22 and debuted atop the Billboard charts. Read our review here >> His current single, “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain),” also hit No. 1.
