Nashville, Tenn. - The newly-named 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards “Best New Country Artist,” Luke Combs, sets sail on his first-ever international headlining tour this October taking his “arena-ready sonics” (Billboard) to the UK, Netherlands and Germany. Minutes after going on-sale last Friday, tickets sold-out in Glasgow and moved so quickly for London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire that the Platinum-selling rising star immediately added a second show at the famed venue and made more tickets available for UK fans. The 2018 ACM New Artist Nominee is currently on his sold-out 55-city debut headlining tour and joins Jason Aldean on the summer 2018 They Don’t Know Tour before heading overseas this fall.
While touring Europe on the C2C Festival this week with capacity crowds in London, Dublin and Glasgow, Combs surprised festival attendees with the news of his full headlining return this fall. Fans met Combs’ London debut at The O2 this week with an arena full of 15,000 singing back not only Combs’ 2x Platinum hit “Hurricane” and 1x Platinum hit “When It Rains It Pours,” but even the North Carolina country star’s unreleased track “Beer Never Broke My Heart” and fan favorite cuts from his first independently released EPs like “She Got the Best of Me” and “Can I Get an Outlaw.”
As his third radio single “One Number Away” rapidly crosses into Top 20 this week, Combs, one of the “brightest rising stars this year” (Vulture), continues his whirlwind international month and heads to Australia for the first time performing as a part of the CMC Rocks festival in Queensland and headlining shows in Melbourne and Newtown.
