Morgan Wallen took a nasty fall on stage during his headlining concert at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday evening (April 20) and he recovered from the incident like an absolute champ.
After delivering an energy-filled 23-song set, the country superstar returned to the stage for a three-song encore that included “Heartless,” “Last Night” and “Whiskey Glasses.”
In videos shared by fans on TikTok, Wallen can be seen navigating the dark stage that was flooded with thick low-lying fog while performing “Heartless.”
As he continued to work the stage, Wallen stepped into a triangular hole that separates the MW-shaped runway, which cause him to fall. However, the show must go on and Wallen quickly got up and laughed it off while continuing on with his headlining concert.
Fans Praised Morgan Wallen’s Showmanship
Dozens of fans quickly took to the comments to praise the “Last Night” singer’s showmanship and his ability to not miss a beat despite falling. The fans also jokingly dubbed him “Morgan Fallen” after the incident.
“He didn’t miss a beat or lyric!!!” one fan wrote, while another added, “He got back up and kept singing heartless good 🤘🏼 it was a great show.”
“Popped back up like a true pro!” another TikTok user wrote, adding, “Glad Morgan’s OK.”
“Never missed a beat of the song!” another TikTok said, praising his talents.
Other fans commented “What a champ!,” “he got up like a champ he is!!!” “how do you still sound perfect while falling and stumbling,” “He took it like a champ shook it right off!!!” “It was definitely a great show! He recovered from that like a boss.” and “He recovered and kept going like a boss! Always a great show!”
One Night At A Time World Tour
Wallen is currently in the midst of the U.S. leg of his One Night At A Time World Tour, which kicked off with two sold-out shows at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin earlier this month.
The One Night At A Time World Tour marks Wallen’s first-time ever headlining stadiums across the globe for multiple nights.
Marking one of the largest tours of 2023 so far and the biggest tour of Wallen’s career, the 58-show trek will visit 30 stadiums, plus arenas, amphitheaters and festivals to fans across four countries and two continents.
The North American leg of the trek will wrap up on October 7 at Tacoma Dome in Washington.
The tour, which kicked off in March with shows overseas in New Zealand and Australia, will return overseas this fall with stops in Canada before heading to The O2 in London on Dec. 3.
Produced by Live Nation, the trek will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates. HARDY and Parker McCollum will also appear on select dates.
In an effort to give back to those in need, Wallen will donate $3 of every ticket sold on the U.S. dates to the More Than My Hometown Foundation. Established in 2021, the foundation benefits causes near and dear to the superstar’s heart, including organizations such as Greater Good Music, Children Are People, the Salvation Army, and the National Museum of African American Music.
Morgan Wallen will also perform at several festivals this summer such as Gulf Coast Jam, Carolina Country Music Fest, We Fest, Big Valley Jamboree, YQM Country Fest, and more.
New Album, One Thing At A Time
The tour comes in support of his latest album, One Thing At A Time, which arrived on March 3. One Thing At A Time showcases Wallen’s wide range of musical influences as well as combine his love for country, rock and hip-hop.
The project features 36 tracks, including duets with Eric Church, HARDY and ERNEST. Wallen’s sister Ashlyne also makes an appearance on the project, singing harmonies on the song titled “Outlook.” He also pays tribute to his son, Indigo (Indie) Wilder Wallen, on the project with the tune “Dying Man,” which he often dedicates to Indie during his live concerts.
“This record represents the last few years of my life, the highs and the lows,” Wallen previously shared in a statement. “It also brings together the musical influences that have shaped me as an artist – country, alternative and hip-hop.”
Nominated For Entertainer Of The Year At 2023 ACM Awards
Additionally, Wallen recently earned four nominations at the 2023 ACM Awards, including the coveted Entertainer Of The Year, Male Artist Of The Year, Song Of The Year (“Sand In My Boots”) and Artist-Songwriter Of The Year.
Co-hosted by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, the 58th Academy Of Country Music Awards will stream live exclusively on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, May 11 at 8/7c.
