Morgan Wallen Kicks Off Dangerous Tour With Sold-Out Show At Madison Square Garden: See Setlist & Photos/Videos

Morgan Wallen officially launched his highly-anticipated headlining tour, dubbed The Dangerous Tour, on Wednesday evening (Feb. 9) at the “world’s most famous arena,” Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The trek comes in support of his record-breaking project, Dangerous: The Double Album.

After “Broadway Girls” flooded the venue speakers, Wallen, wearing his signature cutoff flannel shirt, entered the MW-shaped stage to thunderous screams from the sold-out arena crowd who were excited to see him before he sat down at his piano to kick off the show with a performance of his chart-climbing single, “Sand In My Boots.”

With a decibel level averaging 30dBs louder than the average game at the arena, the East Tennessee native treated fans to an epic 23-song set that spanned both of Wallen’s albums, 2018’s If I Know Me and his chart-topping 33-song project, Dangerous: The Double Album. He performed 15 songs from his chart-topping double album, including the title track, “Still Goin’ Down,” “Rednecks, Red Letters, Red Dirt,” “Silverado For Sale,” “7 Summers,” “Country A$$ Shit,” “Somebody’s Problem,” “Warning,” “865” and more.

The hitmaker also performed all the hits and fan-favorite tunes such as “Chasin’ You,” “More Than My Hometown,” “Whiskey Glasses,” “Up Down,” “The Way I Talk,” “Heartless,” “This Bar,” and Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up,” during which phone flashlights lit up the iconic venue and stayed on while Wallen confessed, “this is one of my favorite songs to sing.”

Wallen was also joined by ERNEST and HARDY during his set for performances of “Flower Shops” and “He Went To Jared,” respectively. 

Wallen’s electrifying performance not only featured a massive MW-shaped stage, but it also included a top-notch production with pyrotechnics, fireworks, and vibrant lights from impressive lighting rigs.

“I never thought I’d be doing this. You all are incredible,” Wallen gushed as he concluded his impressive set.

HARDY, who served as direct support, performed a lengthy set that included the live debut of his unreleased song, “Sold Out,” in addition to tracks from his album, A Rock, including “Truck,” “Boots,” “Boyfriend,” “Give Heaven Some Hell,” and “Unapologetically Country As Hell.” He also added in some fan-favorite tunes like “Rednecker” and “4×4.” 

The Mississippi native brought out Lindsey Ell for “One Beer,” a song that originally features Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson. He also covered “God’s Country,” a song that he co-wrote, which was recorded by Blake Shelton.

The Dangerous Tour was initially set to launch on February 3 in Evansville, Indiana, with the second and third date being in Charleston, WV, and Allentown, PA, respectively, however, Wallen was forced to postpone the first three shows due to “inclement weather.”

“We were supposed to start our tour in Indiana, but the good Lord had other plans, so for 2022, our first show is right here in Madison Square Garden,” Wallen told the capacity crowd during the show before grinningly adding, “Make it hard for the next people who come see us on tour.”
