Morgan Wallen announces huge Detroit concert for 2023
Date is part of the country star's One Night at a Time tour
Country rocker Morgan Wallen will perform at Ford Field on June 30, venue officials announced Thursday.
Tickets for the show, part of the Tennessean's One Night at a Time world tour, go on sale via Ticketmaster channels at 4 p.m. Dec. 9. Bailey Zimmerman and Ernest will open the show.
Wallen's tour kicks off April 15 in Milwaukee and wraps Oct. 7 in Tacoma, Wash. He will also play Grand Rapids' Van Andel Arena on April 27.
Wallen's "Dangerous: The Double Album" has been a sales monster. The 2021 album spent its first 10 weeks at No. 1 and in September it set a record for most weeks in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 among albums by a solo artist.
The album is No. 5 on this week's Billboard 200 chart.
Wallen's success has not come without controversy. The 29-year-old found himself in hot water in February 2021 when a video of him using a racial slur went viral online. Wallen's music was removed from rotation at some radio stations as a result, and he was suspended from his record label.
Wallen was one of the headliners of 2022's Faster Horses festival.
