“I’m going to try something out on you guys. This is just some of my favorite music, so hopefully you like it too,” Wallen told the crowd before exploding into the impressive mix of rock covers that included Linkin Park’s “In The End,” The Eagles’ “Life in the Fast Lane,” Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name,” Kings Of Leon’s “Use Somebody,” Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” and Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.”

This isn’t the first time the “Wasted On You” singer has performed the mashup. Wallen began incorporating the medley into his set in 2017, however, he hasn’t included it within his set list since 2019.

As Wallen currently sits in the Top 40 at pop radio with “Wasted On You,” his new single “You Proof” impacted country radio and quickly became the most-added song with 52 adds and a total of 94 historic adds.

The country hitmaker shared “You Proof” on May 13, which also happened to be his 29th birthday. He first debuted the song in the Summer of 2021 as a work tape on Instagram. The song quickly became a fan-favorite tune and amassed over 1.8 million streams in just days following.

Co-written by Wallen alongside Ashley Gorley, Ernest K. Smith (ERNEST) and Charlie Handsome, “You Proof” finds Wallen singing about drinking away the memory of a previous lover.

“Ain’t nobody sellin’ nothing you proof / something stronger than I’m used to / I’ve been pouring 90-100 feelin’ like nothing’s gonna cut it that’s the hard truth / I need something you proof / I need something you proof,” Wallen sings in the chorus.

The award-winning superstar is currently in the midst of his massive The Dangerous Tour in support of his record-breaking sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album. The tour, which is the biggest country tour of 2022 and runs through October, recently sold-out with over 800,000 tickets sold, according to Up2DateCountry on Instagram.

In addition to HARDY and Larry Fleet, the country hitmaker added Lainey Wilson, Kameron Marlowe, Chase Rice, Ian Munsick, and ERNEST to his sold-out tour lineup on select dates.

The singer also announced his first-ever Stadium show in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field on October 8, 2022, with special guests HARDY, Mike Ryan and Jake Worthington.
