The “Wasted On You” singer said that while nothing is yet “set in stone,” he’s been “snooping around the stadiums” during his conversation with Helton.
When Helton asked Wallen if he ever planned on playing stadiums, the country singer responded, “I think so. I don’t have anything set in stone, but we’ve been snooping around the stadiums. I haven’t completely figured out what I want my show to be like in that setting. But it’s definitely something I’ve been thinking about,” he revealed.
Wallen continued to say that he’s not concerned about filling up stadiums because of how well his tickets have previously sold.
“I don’t have concerns about selling tickets because they’re all gone! At least not this year, hopefully we can keep that up forever,” he added.
Wallen recently dethroned Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard’s record for ticket sales, selling over 37,000 tickets for his upcoming stadium show at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Nearly all of the tickets for Wallen’s Oct. 8th show, which is his first-ever headlining stadium show, sold out during the pre-sale period.
Wallen shared his excitement about the show with Helton, saying it will be a “special” moment for him.
“I’m excited about that. I’m a huge baseball fan, I thought as a kid I might be doing something different in the Rangers ballpark, but it’ll be special,” he explained.
And in thinking about playing stadiums, Wallen also said that his number-one goal is to fill up Knoxville’s Neyland Stadium.
“That’s my #1 goal,” The East Tennessee native told Helton. “I think it’s 102,000 [seats] now. But that’s my #1 goal for sure.”
In the meantime, Wallen can take pride in a different career accomplishment. Wallen just snagged his sixth No. 1 at country radio with his song, “Wasted On You,” which appears on his double album, Dangerous.
The song, which was the most-added at country radio with 82 adds at the time of its release, claimed the top spot on the Mediabase charts this week. Wallen co-wrote the song with Ryan Vojtesak, Ernest K. Smith (ERNEST), and Josh Thompson.
Wallen is currently performing on his Dangerous Tour. His first-ever stadium show at Globe Life Field will feature HARDY, Mike Ryan, and Jake Worthington as special guests.
He will also appear on Country Countdown USA for the second part of his conversation with Helton this week.
