     Country artist Morgan Wallen announced a tour in 2022 titled, The Dangerous Tour, a 46-date arena tour. After not touring in 2021 following a controversy. The tour is to begin in February and continue through September according to 9news. Wallen is going to be touring with Larry Fleet,  another American country singer. 

       The tour is coming after the release of his album “Dangerous: The Double Album.” The album according to Digital Music News has 2.108 million album equivalent sales.

       Some students have decided to buy tickets for the tour while others are disappointed with the price of the tickets. Junior Piper Wright had signed up for the pre-sale, “I waited in the queue for 4 hours and it was sold out… [tickets are] so expensive. It was $920 for nosebleeds.” Wright also talks about how she received Luke Bryan tickets for Christmas last year where Wallen was supposed to also be touring with him. “The main reason I wanted the Luke Bryan tickets was to see Morgan Wallen.” Wallen was removed from the tour surrounding controversy that had surfaced. “I still had fun at the concert though,” Wright says.

      Bigstub.com has tickets listed for multiple of his tour destinations ranging from $100’s in nosebleeds to $1000’s for pit tickets. Some students though are still going to the concert. Senior Luke Phillips has already bought tickets for one of the shows. “I want to go because Morgan Wallen is the best in the game.” Phillips says he is, “excited to tailgate.” Phillips talks about how he has been to many concerts and likes going to them alone because he, “doesn’t like other people.”

      Junior Lundyn Prinz is going to the concert that is in Bristow Jiffy Lube Live in Virginia. “I enjoy his music and he wasn’t on tour last year. I saw him when he headlined for Florida Georgia Line in 2019. He was really good at performing.” Prinz comments on the debatable ticket prices, “Prices are super expensive. The cheapest one I could find was $300. They were horrible at the pricing.”

      Prinz is planning on going to the concert with her family, specifically her sisters. “I’ve been to a lot of concerts before, not just country.” Although Prinz says that country concerts aren’t her favorite.
