NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Morgan Wallen announced plans for a free pop-up show Friday night at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Fans were able to reserve two free tickets per-person, in-person only at Bridgestone’s box office beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday.
Around noon on Thursday, Katie Cafiero, the communications coordinator, told News 2 they expected to be sold out by the end of the day. In addition, they will not open the box office Friday.
Bridgestone Arena also said in a tweet around noon, “Because of that great response, if you are not already in line, we recommend you do NOT come to the Arena at this time – we will likely be out of tickets by the time you join the line.”
Tickets for the free concert were distributed by 1:06 p.m. Bridgestone Arena said, “the response was so incredible.”
Meanwhile, Wallen said he will do an acoustic performance as part of the free show.
“Everybody’s asking me why I ain’t doing a Tennessee show…I’m doing one now so come see me,” explained Wallen.
The in-the-round show kicks-off Friday at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 4:30 p.m.
