Although Morgan Wallen is quite disgraced now- having been the persona non grata at the CMA Awards last week, his time-out seems to be over. The singer has been completely banned from attending the AMAs that would take place the next weekend, but it hasn’t stopped him from announcing a nearly eight-month-long tour that will take him to quite a lot of amphitheaters and areas around the country in 2022.
The tour would start on the 3rd of February in Evansville, Indiana, and would be over on the 24th of September at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The stop-ins between gigs would be the Madison Square Garden on the 9th of February, and the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on the 17th of March. Wallen’s tour will take him to 46 cities across the breadth of the country.
Morgan Wallen Returning To Live Shows
Interestingly, Live Nation seems to be the promoter of most of the dates of Morgan Wallen’s tour. The company hasn’t been able to put its sign across the promotion due to it facing lawsuits in the wake of the disaster that shook Astroworld. The tickets for the arena shows would go on sale on Friday, with the dates for the summer amphitheater going up on the 3rd of December. Hardy, a friend of the singer, will also be a part of a large number of shows, with Larry Fleet coming in as an additional opening act for most of the shows.
The famous country star, Morgan Wallen, has been facing quite a lot of curiosity from the entire music industry owing to his agency status. Recently, WME dropped Wallen as a client immediately after the singer was caught saying the N-word on camera in early February of 2021. However, it was also highlighted that WME had already booked quite a lot of shows for the star this fall, so the singer had the obligation of following through on the shows.
There has also been a turn of events since then, with reports surfacing that it was just an agent of WME, Austin Neal, who had booked the 2022 tour for Morgan Wallen independently, and not under the proposition of WME. It has also been reported that Neal might leave WME to create a new agency that would book Wallen and a few other country singers.
Although Morgan Wallen was taken off the airwaves for quite a few months following the scandal, his songs seem to be welcomed warmly back at country radio.
